We Run With Gangs (Gang Version)

by Teen Girl Scientist Monthly



These are the folks that made it possible. Well, most of them.

When we were funding Modern Dances, a whole buncha folks came forward to help. Some of them gave over $100 (!) to the effort, and so we called them "Our Gang" and wrote a goofy track about what Our Gang does.

You guys rock - thanks for the love! Hope you enjoy.


We got a fist full of dynamite, a mouth fulla fangs
We Run With Gangs! We Run With Gangs!
We got napalm blood so get out of our way
We Run With Gangs! We Run With Gangs!
You're in with the Teens
Or you're into the dirt
Everybody get down
And no body get hurt
Don't tell our Moms
They'd never look at us the same…
We run with gangs!

Rolling into class - on our skate boards
And all the teachers screaming - oh my Lord
Our feet up the desk - becuz we're bored
We don't do rules cuz we're too dang hard

Throwing parties - in the teacher's lounge
Drinking soda - and making out
Cherry bombing - the bathroom stalls
Ditching class to hang out at the mall

We ride rad dirt bikes with decal'd flames
We Run With Gangs! We Run With Gangs!
We just ran out of business cards, so remember the name
We Run With Gangs! We Run With Gangs!
Or it's DOA
Don't mess with us
Or we'll mess up your face
We break all the rules
Except we always look both ways
We run with gangs!

Doesn't matter - if we brushed our teeth
We're too hard for cavities!

We're solving mysteries - the grown ups won't touch

We Run With Gangs!  We Run With Gangs!
Or it's DOA
Don't mess with us
Or we'll mess up your face
We break the rules
And we break for parades
Yeah you're in with the Teens
Or you're into the dirt
Everybody get down
And no body get hurt
But don't tell our Moms
They'd never look at us the same…
We run with gangs!
