When the hammer comes down,
Ain't gonna be fun,
Can't get away, no matter how you run.
When the hammer comes down,
The bullets gonna fly,
People be shootin' out an eye for an eye.

Are ya gonna stick around,
When the hammer comes down?

When the hammer comes down,
Life is gonna change,
Everything you knew is gonna be rearranged.
When the hammer comes down,
The earth is gonna shake,
Some trees are gonna bend, the rest are gonna break.

Are ya gonna stick around,
When the hammer comes down?

Whether you're an old man, a young man, a woman or girl,
Gonna be on the street someday,
Baby, someone's gonna rock you.
Everybody will believe,
But nobody knows where they're goin' when they leave.
The world is gonna stop,
Some folks gonna stay, some are gettin' off?

Are ya gonna stick around,
When the hammer comes down?

When the hammer comes down,
It won't help to be afraid,
Everybody's gonna march in the soft parade.
When the hammer comes down,
Too late to get smart,
It's gonna come quick and it's gonna hit hard.

Are ya gonna stick around,
When the hammer comes down?
Are ya gonna stick around,
When the hammer comes down? -- repeat line 2 more times
