Hold on to your head
Hold on to your hat
You're screaming down the alley
And never coming back

Oh yeah

Get out of my bed
Get out of the sack
Don't give me no lip
Don't you give me no crap

No way

Get out of the madhouse
Tear it all down
Get out of the madhouse
Burn it to the ground

Got to, got to get out

Yeah

Get out of my face
Get out of my shack
Now you've had a fair share
Now you've had a fair whack


Oh yeah


Hold on to your butt
Hold on to your hat
You're heading out of here
And never coming back


Oh no


Get out of the madhouse
Tear it all down
Get out of the madhouse
Burn it to the ground


We'll never make it
Don't you fake it
You're getting loaded
I'm getting goaded

Got to, got to get out
Come on, baby

Hold on to your heart
Hold on to your hat
Don't give me no shit
Don't you give me no crap

Whoo!

Hold on to your head
Don't give me no rap
I've had it up to here
With your yakety yak

You're getting loaded
I'm getting goaded
We'll never make it
Don't you fake it

Get out of the madhouse
Tear it all down
Get out of the madhouse
Burn it to the ground

Got to, got to get out
Got to get out
Come on, baby
Come on, baby
Burn it all down

I'm over with you, baby
I'm over with you, baby

Get up, get out

Get up, get out

Get up
