(LyricFind)

Back in black

I hit the sack

I’ve been too long, I’m glad to be back

Yes, I’m let loose

From the noose

That’s kept me hanging about

I’ve been looking at the sky

‘Cause it’s gettin’ me high

Forget the hearse ’cause I never die

I got nine lives

Cat’s eyes

Abusin’ every one of them and running wild

‘Cause I’m back

Yes, I’m back

Well, I’m back

Yes, I’m back

Well, I’m back, back

Well, I’m back in black

Yes, I’m back in black

Back in the back

Of a Cadillac

Number one with a bullet, I’m a power pack

Yes, I’m in a bang

With a gang

They’ve got to catch me if they want me to hang

‘Cause I’m back on the track

And I’m beatin’ the flack

Nobody’s gonna get me on another rap

So look at me now

I’m just makin’ my play

Don’t try to push your luck, just get out of my way

‘Cause I’m back

Yes, I’m back

Well, I’m back

Yes, I’m back

Well, I’m back, back

Well, I’m back in black

Yes, I’m back in black

Well, I’m back, yes, I’m back

Well, I’m back, yes, I’m back

Well, I’m back, back

Well, I’m back in black

Yes, I’m back in black

Oh, yeah

Oh, yeah

Take my love

Oh, yeah, yeah

Oh, yeah, yeah, ooh, yeah

Well, I’m back (I’m back)

Back (I’m back)

Back (I’m back)

Back (I’m back)

Back (I’m back)

Back

Back in black

Yes, I’m back in black

I’ve hit the sack
