G        C    G    Hell no, we won’t go!                                     We’re never gonna go away.

G        D           You can’t make us leave                      or make us go your way.

G        C    G    We were born with the same drive                 so we’ll always say,

G        D    G    “Hell no, we won’t go!                        We are here to stay.”

 

D                C       Simon Smith met his man,      his true love,        at an airport in Brisbane. 

D                Am   They both were runnin’ late              and missed their plane that day. 

D                C       They talked a while                 and realized                    they’re from the same quaint place:

D                Am   A county     in a state     that hates gays.

C        D            But they’re going back      to say,

 

G        C    G    Hell no, we won’t go!                         We’re never gonna go away.

G        D           You can’t make us leave                              or make us go your way.

G        C    G    We were born with the same drive     so we’ll always say,

G        D    G    “’Hell no, we won’t go!                       We are here to stay.’”

 

D                C       It’s easier if you’re        a woman              to find a woman to love.

D                Am   Since women have always loved       naturally.

D                C       But women fear men more                         than men fear other men. 

D                Am   Even women        have never been free. 

C        D            So they stand up and say,

 

G        C    G    Hell no, we won’t go!                         We’re never gonna go away.

G        D           You can’t make us leave                              or make us go your way.

G        C    G    We were born with the same drive     so we’ll always say,

G        D    G    “’Hell no, we won’t go!                       We are here to stay.’”

 

Jam:

D                C      

D                Am  

 

D                C       Can you imagine  a future                 when the chickens, fish, pigs, cows

D                Am   and sheep   will rebel     against humans?

D                C       Or an alien invasion      decides        men will feed them?

D                Am   Or a lowly pathogen does us in?

C        D            But someone will always say,

 

G        C    G    Hell no, we won’t go!                         We’re never gonna go away.

G        D           You can’t make us leave                              or make us go your way.

G        C    G    We were born with the same drive     so we’ll always say,

G        D    G    “’Hell no, we won’t go!                        We are here to stay.

G        D    G    “’Hell no, we won’t go!                        No matter what you do or say.

G        D    G    “’Hell no, we won’t go!                        We’re never gonna go away.’”
