"Raise Your Hands" as written by Jon Bon Jovi and Richard Sambora....
You, you got a nasty reputation
We're in a sticky situation, it's down to me and you
So tell me, is it true, they say there ain't nobody better
Well now that we're together
Show me what you can do
You're under the gun out on the run
Gonna set the night on fire
You're out on the run under the gun
And playin' to win

(Raise your hands) when you want to let it go
(Raise your hands) when you want to let a feeling show
(Raise your hands) from New York to Chicago
(Raise your hands) from New Jersey to Tokyo
Oh oh raise your hands

I, I've been out on the front line
Where you'll go down if you waste time
They'll walk all over you
But I, I ain't here looking for surrender
I'll raise the flag if you'll defend her
It's up to you
You're under the gun out on the run
Gonna set the night on fire
You're out on the run Under the gun
Playin' to win

You got to (raise your hands) when you want to let it go
(Raise your hands) when you want to let a feeling show
(Raise your hands) from New York to Chicago
(Raise your hands) from New Jersey to Tokyo
Oh oh raise your hands
Oh oh raise your hands
Oh alright let's go

Raise your hands
Raise your hands
(Raise your hands) when you want to let it go
(Raise your hands) when you want to let a feeling show
(Raise your hands) from New York to Chicago
(Raise your hands) from New Jersey to Tokyo
Oh oh raise your hands

(Raise your hands) New York
(Raise your hands) Detroit
(Raise your hands) Vancouver
(Raise your hands) hey London
(Raise your hands) Sayreville, New Jersey
(Raise your hands) Phoenix
(Raise your hands)

    General CommentRemember this song from Spaceballs, it's what Barf (John Candy) is eating his giant bucket of dogfood to when we first meet him and Lone Starr (Bill Pullman).

    Awesome song, one of Bon Jovi's best.
