Lyrics Edit

No parking, no biking.

No swimming, no hiking.

No driving too fast or slow.

And the word is no.

No, no, no, no, no, no, no.

And the word is no.

No, no, no, no, no, no, no.

And the word is.

No camping, no cooking.

No laughing, no looking.

No stopping. No place to go.

And the word is no.

No, no, no, no, no, no, no.

And the word is no.

No, no, no, no, no, no, no.

No!

How could just one word, just two letters, keep so much from getting done?

We'd be worse off without it, no doubt about it, stand up and shout it.

No's no fun!

No talking, no teasin'.

No rhyming, no reason.

No hiding from "n" and "o".

And the word is no.

No, no, no, no, no, no, no.

And the word is no.

No, no, no, no, no, no, no. No!

And the word is no.

No, no, no, no, no. No!

And the word is no.

No, no, no, no, no. No!

And the word is

No!
