C’mon, it’s such a joy, c’mon you metal boy
C’mon let’s take it easy
C’mon let’s make it sleazy
Everybody’s got a ticket to ride
Except for me and my lightning
Your insides ooze out, the electrodes are in
The electrodes are in so your eyeballs pop out
Someone controlling me
Can’t be happening to me
Sweat-chilling cold, I watch death unfold
How true is this? Get it over with
I think I’m gonna be dead, I think it’s today
Electric wires pinned to my head, I’m frying away
I’ve got a ticket to ride the lightning
Death is in the air, it’s bringing me down
Strapped in the electric chair, death is all around
Before I get to riding so high
Someone help me, oh please God help me
Flashing before my eyes
Someone help me, oh please God help me
Wakened by horrid scream burning in my brain
Freed from this frightening dream
I can feel the flame

    General Commentam I crazy or does this Beatles tune really translate well into thrash metal?? This is gotta be one of the top Beatallica tracks, they follow the original arrangement pretty close but they make it fuckin sleazy. The verse part especially, that original Beatles riff could almost pass for a Metallica.
