I said 'Oh',
She said My head aches,
But she's still dancing to the music that my band plays

I said 'Oh',
I watch her legs shake
And she was jumping up and down just like an earthquake

I said 'Oh',
I watch her sweat drip
I saw her clap her hands and close her eyes and bite her bottom lip

I said 'Oh',
I watch her dress rip
In the car behind the club for a quick fix

And, oh
I watch her drink spill
I saw her dance right to the bar to get a refill

I said 'Oh',
Pick up your teeth
And all the kids they were clapping Mississippi

And, oh
We hit the mirror
And we scream a little louder so that everyone can hear we said,

Oh oh, let the band play
I'm being broken up and ripped apart by X-rays
I said oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
They can't stop us,
They can't stop us,
They can't stop us now

I said 'Oh',
In the back room,
On the couch I caught a whiff of your perfume.

And, oh
See the crowd rage,
It was a sea of nicotine beaten teenage

And, oh
Full of heartbreak
We spent the New Year's Eve with the Champagne

And, oh
In the bathroom,
Because my band was going on a little too soon.

And, oh
I see stars
We spent the last four hours wasting money in the bar

I said 'Oh',
On the stage,
Because the kids were going crazy to that Mississippi rain,
I said,

Oh oh, let the band play
I'm being broken up and ripped apart by X-rays
I said oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
They can't stop us,
They can't stop us.

Oh oh, let the band play
I'm being broken up and ripped apart by X-rays
I said oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
They can't stop us,
They can't stop us,
They can't stop us now.

I said, Oh oh, let the band play
I'm being broken up and ripped apart by X-rays
I said oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
They can't stop us,
They can't stop us,
They can't stop us now
