Written by Tears for Fears, 1984. Arranged by Rose Hodgson, 2020.

INTRO
Bass: Doo
Tenor: Doo then shout, shout
Alto and Soprano: Ooo then bam bam badam

CHORUS (x2 – second time, basses on doo)
Shout, shout, let it all out
These are the things I can do without
Come on, I’m talking to you, come on
Alto and Soprano: Bam bam badam x2

Sop, Bass: (Alto on ooo)
In violent times, you shouldn’t have to sell your soul
In black and white, they really really ought to know
Those one track minds that took you for a working boy
Kiss them goodbye, you shouldn’t have to jump joy
Bass only: You shouldn’t have to jump joy

Tenors:
Violent times, shouldn’t have to sell your soul
Shouldn’t have to sell your soul
Black and white, they really really ought to know
They really really ought to know
One track minds, that took you for a working boy
That took you for a working boy
Kiss them goodbye, you shouldn’t have to jump joy

CHORUS (bass on doo)
Shout, shout, let it all out
These are the things I can do without
Come on, I’m talking to you, come on
Alto and Soprano: Bam bam badam x2

Sop, alto (bass on ooo)
They gave you life and in return you gave them hell
As cold as ice, I hope we live to tell the tale
2nd alto only I hope we live to tell the tale

Tenor:
Gave you life, in return you gave them hell
And in return you gave them hell
Cold as ice, I hope we live to tell the tale
I hope we live to tell the tale

CHORUS (x2 – second time, basses on doo)
Shout, shout, let it all out (Second time – 2nd sop: Let it all out!)
These are the things I can do without
Come on, I’m talking to you, come on
Alto and Soprano: Bam bam badam x2

BREAK
Bass and tenor: ba ba ba…
Alto and sop: Shout! Shout! X2
Sop, bass (alto on ooo)

Ooo… And when you’ve taken down your guard
If I could change your mind
I’d really love to break your heart
Bass only: I’d really love to break your heart

Tenor:
Doo doo doo doo
And when you’ve taken down your guard
And when you’ve taken down your guard
If I could change, if I could change your mind
Break your heart, I’d really love to break your heart

CHORUS (basses on doo)
Shout, shout, let it all out
These are the things I can do without
Come on , I’m talking to you, come on
2nd sop: Let it all out! Come on
2nd alto: ba ba ba…

CHORUS (ALL)
Shout, shout, let it all out
These are the things I can do without
Come on, I’m talking to you
