Lyrics

BRUCE:
Wo-o-oah!
Never again will she get the best of me!
Never again will she take away my freedom!
And we won't forget the day we...

CHILDREN:
Fought for the right to be a little bit naughty!
Never again...

BRUCE:
...will the Chokey door slam!

CHILDREN:
Never again...

BRUCE:
...will I be bullied, and-

CHILDREN:
Never again...

BRUCE:
...will I doubt it when...

CHILDREN:
...my mummy says I'm a miracle!
Never again!
Never again will we live behind bars!
Never again now that we know that

We are revolting children living in revolting times!
We sing revolting songs using revolting rhymes!
We'll be revolting children 'till our revolting's done!
And we'll have the Trunchbull bolting, we're revolting!

BOY 1:
And we'll become a screaming horde!

GIRL 1:
Take out your hockey stick and use it as a sword!

BOY 2:
Never again will we be ignored!

GIRL 2:
We'll find out where the chalk is stored!

BOY 3:
And draw rude pictures on the board!

GIRL 4:
It's not insulting, we're revolting!

CHILDREN:
We can S-P-L how we like!
If enough of us are wrong, wrong is right!
Everyone, N-O-R-T-why?!
'Cause we're a little bit naughty!

So we ought to stay inside the line
But if we disobey at the same time,
There is nothing that the Trunchbull can do!

BRUCE:
She can take her hammer and S-H-U-

CHILDREN:
You didn't think you could push us too far
But there's no going back now
We R-E-V-O-L-T-I-N!

BRUCE:
Revolting Time!

CHILDREN:
We S-I-N-G-

BRUCE:
Songs!

CHILDREN:
U-S-I-N-G-

BRUCE:
Rhymes!

CHILDREN:
We'll be R-E-V-O-L-T-I-N-G!
It is 2-L-8-4-U,
We are revolting!

SENIORS:
Aargh!

CHILDREN & SENIORS:
We are revolting children living in revolting times!
We sing revolting songs using revolting rhymes!
We'll be revolting children 'till our revolting's done!
And we'll have the Trunchbull bolting, we're revolting!

BRUCE:
Never again will she get the best of me!
Wo-o-o-o-ah!
Down-down-down!

CHILDREN & SENIORS: (simultaneously)
We are revolting children living in revolting times!
We sing revolting songs using revolting rhymes!
We'll be revolting children 'till our revolting's done!
And we'll have the Trunchbull bolting, we're revolting!

ALL:
It is 2-L-8-4-U,
We are revolting!
