Raiders of the Night
Lyrics
RAIDERS OF THE NIGHT

(CHORUS)

They are the Cockroaches Raiders of the night

They are the cockroaches

in the day-they stay-out of- sight

They are the Cockroaches- Here?s the song they sing

They are the cockroaches-They eat- anything


Their skeletons on the outside
It?s something that they shed
They come out and. run around
after we?re in bed
They sleep when we?re awake
And can live without food
They can live without a head
If they have to

(CHORUS)

They are the Cockroaches Raiders of the night

They are the cockroaches

in the day-they stay-out of- sight

They are the Cockroaches- Here?s the song they sing

They are the cockroaches-They eat- anything (CHORUS)



They?ve got 6 legs and 18 knees
And claws to climb the walls
When it?s dark they do as they please
and run up and down the halls
They smell with their antennaes
And breathe through their sides
They?ve been here since the dinosaurs
And they still survive


(CHORUS)

They are the Cockroaches Raiders of the night

They are the cockroaches

in the day-they stay-out of- sight

They are the Cockroaches- Here?s the song they sing

They are the cockroaches-They eat- anything


(BRIDGE)
They can survive almost anything
Radiation or freezing temperatures
They?ve been on the earth for
Two Hundred and Eighty Million years


They?ve been here for quite some time
And they?re not leaving soon
You can bet that.they have cousins
Living on the moon
You have to admire their strength
And sheer audacity

Cockroaches will live forever
Singing cockroach harmony

(CHORUS)
