Song Lyrics: Revolting Children

Music and Lyrics by Tim Minchin
With orchestrations by Chris Nightingale
Dialogue by Dennis Kelly

Never again will she get the best of me,
Never again will she take away my freedom,
And we won’t forget the day we fought
For the right to be a little bit naughty!
Never again will the chokey door slam
Never again will I be bullied and
Never again Will I doubt it when
My mummy says I’m a miracle

Never again!

Never again will be live behind bars,
Never again now that we know we are,
Revolting children
Living in revolting times.
We sing revolting songs
Using revolting rhymes.
We’ll be revolting children
‘Til our revolting’s done,
And we’ll have the Trunchbull bolting,
We’re revolting!

We are revolting children
Living in revolting times.
We sing revolting songs
Using revolting rhymes.
We’ll be revolting children
‘Til our revolting’s done,
And we’ll have the Trunchbull bolting,
We’re revolting!

We will become a screaming horde!
Take out your hockey stick and use it as a sword!
Never again will we be ignored
We’ll find out where the chalk is stored
and draw rude pictures on the board
It’s not insulting
We’re REVOLTING!

We can S-P-el how we like!
If enough of us are wrong, wrong is right!
Everyone! N-O-R-T-Y!
Cos we’re a little bit naughty!
So we gotta stay inside the line,
If we disobey at the same time,
There is nothing that the Trunchbull can do
She can take her hammer and S-H-U-

You didn’t think you could push us too far
But there’s no going back now we

R-E-V-O-L-T-I-N-  Revolting times
We’ll S-I-N-G songs
U-S-I-N-G Ryhmes
We’ll be R-E-V-O-L-T-I-N-G
IT IS 2 L 8 4 U “E” R E-volting!

We are revolting children
Living in revolting times.
We sing revolting songs
Using revolting rhymes.
We’ll be revolting children
‘Til our revolting’s done,
IT IS 2 L 8 4 U

We are revolting children
Living in revolting times.
We sing revolting songs
Using revolting rhymes.
We’ll be revolting children
‘Til our revolting’s done,
It is 2-L-8-4-U  
WE ARE REVOLTING!
