Is This Thing Working? - Lyrics

Is this thing working?
Is this thing on?
I said we
We need each other
Now more than the other
We
We need each other
Now more than ever
Is this thing working?
Is this thing on?
In the hallway of a high school
Anywhere USA
There was a bully that would pick on a different kid
It seemed like every day
He had this pack of back slapping buddies
Laughing and backing him up all the way
And this screaming girlfriend who would make believe in everything
He'd say
Is this thing working?
Is this thing on?
Is this thing working?
Is this thing on?
Well then one day this kid
Who he'd beat up a bunch of times before
Realized, to his own surprise
That he probably could indeed take more
And with that he hatched an evil plan to
Make that devil pay
Walked up to him, in the middle of the gym
And he found the nerve to say
You gonna hit somebody today?
You gonna hit me too
In fact, you're gonna hit me every day
But now I'm picking on you
And as crazy as it all might sound right now
I ain't stopping till I'm through
It's too late to beg for mercy
I ain't gonna give any to you
Is this thing working?
Is this thing on?
Is this thing working?
Is this thing on?
Is this thing working?
Is this thing on?
Is this thing working?
Is this thing on?
Well that bully he just laughed and laughed
Of course, and so did all of his friends
Beat that poor kid unmercifully
For days and days on end
Only slightly less impressively to that girl
And all of his friends
Eventually, secretly, start
Hope that kid might win
So, it this thing working?
Is this thing on?
Is this thing working?
Is this thing on?
Is this thing working?
Is this thing on?
Is this thing working?
Is this thing on?
You're never gonna hear him say this now
Because he thinks we don't know
But winning that battle every day cost our bully the war a long time ago
And of all the scars he's got to show
For every blow that kid sneaked in
The worst one is probably knowing that tomorrow he's
going to have to get up
And fight that kid again
Is this thing working?
Is this thing on?
Is this thing working?
Is this thing on?
Is this thing working?
Is this thing on?
Is this thing working?
Is this thing on?
