"T.H.E.H.I.V.E.S." as written by Pharrell L Williams and Unknown Co-writer....
Welcome!

I know that it has been a long time coming
Your bought your tickets, you waited in line
You were walking and now you find yourself running
To get closer to the giant neon sign

Allow me to
Give you a clue

You're looking at black and white
Seeing our name in lights
Make you feel alright
Baby we're here all night

[Chorus]
We rule the world
This is our world
We rule the world
This is our world
T.H.E.H.I.V.E.S.

You hold your breath and now it's silent
The humming of the amps is all you hear
Introducing for the fourth time running
Cause if you don't know we'll make it very clear

Oh
You know it's true

You're looking at black and white
Seeing our name in lights
Make you feel alright
Baby we're here all night

[Chorus]

When you're all ripped up around a quarter to ten
Gonna piece you back together by eleven and then
When you sweated it out and you're all soaking wet
Then we'll do it again

When you're all ripped up around a quarter to ten
Gonna piece you back together by eleven and then
When you sweated it out and you're all soaking wet
Then we'll do it again

[Chorus]

    General CommentHaha, this song is like "We're the Hives, and we own the world..."
    The neon sign, yeah they always have this huge red neon sign at their concerts that says "The Hives"
    "You're looking at black and white"
    They wear black and white suits, their insturments are all black and white... Etc, etc.
    "We rule the world,
    This is our world"
    Typical Hives additude.

    I think most of the song makes a lot of sense, but otherwise if anyone somehow gets confused I'll translate the rest. :P
