Lyrics

Well, it's a quarter to twelve and there is no time
Got to move fast to get to the door to the jungle
Well the trees are screaming and the sky explodes Branches are ripping at my clothes in the jungle
[Chorus:]
You can't run and you can't hide Screaming for Godzilla
Forty natives by my side Screaming for Godzilla
Will this nightmare ever end?
This is real, it's not pretend
You can't run and you can't hide
Well, the buildings are falling and the city is hot Mothra and 'Zilla are
Squaring it off in the struggle Ripping the bridge from under the train
Crushing the cars and smashing the planes in the struggle
[Chorus:]
You can't run and you can't hide Screaming for Godzilla Forty natives by my
Side Screaming for Godzilla
Was this dream always the same?
What'd I do? I'm not to blame
You can't run and you can't hide

[Chorus:]
You can't run and you can't hide Screaming for Godzilla

Forty natives by my Side Screaming for Godzilla
With each blow Godzilla screams,
Throw the monster to his knees?
Send him back where evil hides
