Lyrics

Oh lazy dynamite
Oh lazy dynamite
Oh lazy dynamite
Oh lazy dynamite

Won't you come out tonight
When the time is right
Oh why do you fight that feeling in your heart
Don't you know that inside
There's a love you can't hide
So why do you fight that feeling in your heart

Oh lazy dynamite (repeat 3 times)

Oh why do you fight that feeling in your heart
Don't you know that inside
There's a love you can't hide
So why do you fight the feeling in your heart

Oh lazy dynamite (repeat 3 times)
