The Mooney Suzuki – 99% lyrics

Had a flash of mad inspiration,
And just the best list of intention,
Oh but there's a blood that 'ya need to bleed,
Yes said the mother of invention.

When you've had it with the aggravation,
And you're swamped up in the complication,
Just enough with the frustration, sing!

Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na...

Oh, here it comes...

In my past life I was a Roman soldier,
And yes I once was a Roman slave,
Well I've been roamin' all over the ages babe,
Ain't gonna make it in a just one day, oh no
.

When you've had it with the aggravation,
And you're swamped up in the complication,
Just enough with the frustration, sing!

Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na...

Broke my back for the pharaohs,
Rolling limestones from the mines,
But baby I built those pyramids,
Well just'a one brick at a time.

When you've had it with the aggravation,
And you're swamped up with the complication,
Just enough with the frustration, sing!

Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na...

With all your trenches empty,
And all your martyr's blown,
If you've been goin' through that hell,
Then baby just keep going.

Your capitals have crumbled,
And command been overthrown,
When your last stand's on your last leg,
Then baby just keep going!
