Back in black
I hit the sack
I been too long
I'm glad to be back
Yes, I'm dead loose
from the noose that's kept me hanging around.
I'm just, uh, livin' on the side 'cause it's gettin' me high,
forget the hearse cause I never die.
I got nine lives, cat's eyes,
each and evry one of them is wondrin why,
cause I'm back!
Yes, I'm back!
Mama, I'm back!
Yes, I'm back!
Well, I'm back, back.
Well, I'm back in black, yes I'm back in black! Ow!

Back in the thing,
I drive a Cadillac,
mama, one with a bullet,
I'm a power pack.
Yes, I'm in a band,
with a gang,
they've got to catch me if they want me to hang,
cause I'm back on the track and I'm beatin the fox,
nobody's gonna get me on another rap.
So look at me now, I'm just, uh, makin' my bread,
don't try to push your luck, just get out of my way
cause I'm back!
Yes, I'm back!
Well, I'm back!
Yes, I'm back!
Well, I'm back, back.
Well, I'm back in black, yes, I'm back in black.

(solo)

Well, I'm back!
Yes, I'm back!
Well, I'm back!
Yes, I'm back!
Well, I'm back, back.
Well, I'm back in black, yes, I'm back in black.

(solo)

Well, I'm back, back,
Back, back, back, back,
Back in black, yes, I'm back in black.

    General CommentI think this is an ok song but I have to say that I expect better from the chili peppers. I love this band so anything from them is great I was just a little "ummmm that’s it!?!" when I read the lyrics to this one.

    General CommentThe lyrics here suck. For one, it's "I ain't never gonna stop 'cause it's gettin' me high." I let loose, not dead loose. It's abusing every one and then a-runnin' wild. There are more but i don't feel like writing a small novel.

    General CommentThis is an AC/DC song, so obviously it is not exactly RHCP's style. Is this on any cds??
