They say radiation's harmful,
It's a fact of life
Without it we would die...

We're nuclear babies now,
We're nuclear babies now.

We're nuclear babies now,
We're nuclear babies now,
We're nuclear babies now.

Radiation's here to stay
I think I'll cop some cosmic rays
It gives my skin that healthy glow...oh-woah.

Makes my eyes shine clear and bright
And when it's dark I don't need light,
I'm irridescent all the time...oh-woah.

There's nothing wrong with a mutation
They're good for mankind and the nation,
They're useful for society
It breaks up the monotony!

Different sizes,different colours
Some have bones that bend like rubber,
No two faces look alike
We snap,We crawl,
We bounce,We fly,
Our temperatures unique and vary
Long and short,We're Bald and hairy
There's one thing that we're all sure of...
We're mutants and we just don't care

We're nuclear babies now,
We're nuclear babies now

Radiation's fine by me,
The unpredictability,
I like the way it changes chromosomes.

There's nothing wrong with a mutation
They're good for mankind and the nation,
They're useful for society
It breaks up the monotony!

I've been soaking up those rays for such a long time,
That I feel fine when I'm blue
Plutonium will do,or Cobalt too...
Neutrons, X-rays, don't forget the Gamma rays
Bop ba bop ba bop ba bop ....

There's one thing we're sure of,
We're mutants and we just don't care...

We're nuclear babies now,
We're nuclear babies now.

Ahhhh,ah ah ah ah ah ahhhh...

We're nuclear babies,
We're nuclear babies,
We're nuclear babies.

Ahhh,ah ah ah ah ah ahhhhh...

We're nuclear babies,
We're nuclear babies,
We're nuclear babies.

Ahhhhhhh...
