We're Not Gonna Take It Lyrics - The Who

Review The Song (6)



Tommy: Welcome to the Camp,
I guess you all know why we're here.
My name is Tommy
and I became aware this year

If you want to follow me,
you've got to play pinball.
And put in your earplugs
put on your eyeshades
you know where to put the cork

Hey you getting drunk, so sorry!
I've got you sussed.
Hey you smoking Mother Nature!
This is a bust!
Hey hung up old Mr. Normal,
Don't try to gain my trust!
'Cause you ain't gonna follow me any of those ways

Guests:
We're not gonna take it
We're not gonna take it
We're not gonna take it
We're not gonna take it

We're not gonna take it
Never did and never will
We're not gonna take it
Gonna break it, gonna shake it,
let's forget it better still

Tommy: Now you can't hear me,
your ears are truly sealed.
You can't speak either,
your mouth is filled.
You can't see nothing,
and pinball completes the scene.
Here comes Uncle Ernie to guide you to
Your very own machine.

Guests:
We're not gonna take it
We're not gonna take it
We're not gonna take it
We're not gonna take it

We're not gonna take it
Never did and never will
Don't want no religion
And as far as we can tell
We ain't gonna take you
Never did and never will
We're not gonna take you
We forsake you
Gonna rape you
Let's forget you better still.

Tommy:
See me.
Feel me.
Touch me.
Heal me.

Listening to you,
I get the music.
Gazing at you,
I get the heat.
Following you,
I climb the mountains.
I get excitement at your feet.

Right behind you,
I see the millions.
On you,
I see the glory.
From you,
I get opinions.
From you,
I get the story.

Listening to you,
I get the music.
Gazing at you,
I get the heat.
Following you,
I climb the mountains.
I get excitement at your feet.

Right behind you,
I see the millions.
On you,
I see the glory.
From you,
I get opinions.
From you,
I get the story.

Listening to you,
I get the music.
Gazing at you,
I get the heat.
Following you,
I climb the mountains.
I get excitement at your feet.

(FADE:)
Right behind you,
I see the millions.
On you,
I see the glory.
From you,
I get opinions.
From you,
I get the story.

Powerfull | Reviewer: Jackson | 12/15/12

its all about following false messiahs (singers, politicians actors, writers) which are loved for some time, and just few moments later we reject them. unending story of yours lives.

Theatricality and deception....... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/25/12

"Theatricality and deception. Powerful agents to the uninitiated. But we are initiated, aren't we Bruce? Members of the League of Shadows."-Bane

This song is about freemasonry and TOMMY is the INITIATE.

were not gonna take you | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/5/11

this song sends you on a journey of emotion and feelings when they say were not gonna take you we forsake you gonna rape you forget you better still. it's about acceptance about being rejected the lyrics are strong. and for a man like me who's spent time in jail and is looking at some future prison time and is currently homeless the lyrics made perfect sense to me after really hearing them for the first time the other day

We're Not Gonna Take It | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/3/11

I love this song. It's not about a child, by the time this song is taking place, Tommy is an adult. I don't think that Pete could have closed the story out with a better song. I also think that this is much better than Twisted Sister's song of the same name. I hate how people always think of that when they hear "We're Not Gonna Take It"

I am Tommy | Reviewer: paul gates | 7/2/11

If this is the best rock and roll group that ever was, then I am glad I was never really a rock and roller.
I am Tommy! The song "We are not going to take it" ends with "going to rape it" lets forget it better still" I know why the song was written, and I know why the album was written. It is suggested all through the album that Tommy is a child, then why does it say "going to rape it" lets forget it better still" It seems Peter Townsend did not like children much at all.
I remember him saying that he wrote the album while on an airplane under the influence of LSD. To say that drugs had any influence on what you write is a little crazy, or maybe more that a little crazy.
It must have been a bad trip in more ways than one!

Greatest Chourus of all time | Reviewer: David | 3/11/06

I just love this song, it is a great way to end Tommy and is an epic all in its own. And this song has the greatest chorus of all time.
