Lyrics


I'm a rolling thunder, pouring rain

I'm coming on like a hurricane

My lightning's flashing across the sky

You're only young, but you're gonna die


I won't take no prisoners, won't spare no lives

Nobody's putting up a fight

I got my bell, I'm gonna take you to hell

I'm gonna get you, Satan get you


Hell's bells

Yeah, hell's bells

You got me ringing

Hell's bells

My temperature's high

Hell's bells


I'll give you black sensations up and down your spine

If you're into evil, you're a friend of mine

See my white light flashing as I split the night

'Cause if good's on the left, then I'm sticking to the right


I won't take no prisoners, won't spare no lives

Nobody's putting up a fight

I got my bell, I'm gonna take you to hell

I'm gonna get you, Satan get you


Hell's bells

Oh, hell's bells

You got me ringing

Hell's bells

My temperature's high

Hell's bells


Hell's bells, Satan's comin' to you

Hell's bells, he's ringing them now

Those hell's bells, the temperature's high

Hell's bells, across the sky

Hell's bells, they're taking you down

Hell's bells, they're dragging you under

Hell's bells, gonna split the night

Hell's bells, there's no way to fight, yeah


Hell's bells
