  • Only way to feel the noise is when it's good and loud
    So good I can't believe it, screaming with the crowd
    Don't sweat it, we'll get it back to you
    Don't sweat it, we'll get it back to you
    Overkill, overkill, overkill

    On your feet you feel the beat, it goes straight to your spine
    Shake your head you must be dead if it don't make you fly
    Don't sweat it, we'll get it back to you
    Don't sweat it, we'll get it back to you
    Overkill, overkill, overkill

    Know your body's made to move, ya feel it in your guts
    Rock 'n' roll ain't worth the name if it don't make ya strut
    Don't sweat it, we'll get it back to you
    Don't sweat it, we'll get it back to you
    Overkill, overkill, overkill Writer/s: Edward Alan Clarke, Ian Kilmister, Philip John Taylor
