Lyrics

I said, you can't fight lightning,
Said, you can't fight lightning,
I said, you can't fight lightning whatever you do,
Said, you can't fight lightning whatever you do,
Here it comes again,
Here it comes again,
Here it comes again.

I said, you can't fight lightning whatever you do
You can't fight lightning, it's gonna get to you.
Here it comes again,
Here it comes again,
Here it comes again.
Here it comes.

(ho!)
(ho!)
(yeah!)

You can't fight lightning,
You can't fight lightning,
I said, you can't fight lightning,
No, you can't fight lightning,
No, you can't fight lightning, it's gonna get you,
You can't fight lightning whatever you do.
Here it comes again,
Here it comes again,
Here it comes again.

Mm -

Lightning, lightning, lightning, lighning.....
You can't fight lightning...
