Lyrics:

We didn’t know that it would blow up
With such might
We stars are even brighter
Contrasted by the night

Sent out shock waves
Filled up the outer space
Even the ghost came
To the late late late show
Watch us play

Everything went tossing
Everyone was talking
Making up their faces
Wonder what we look like naked

Ah the irresistible force met the immovable object oh
Ah the irresistible force met the immovable object
Banging and banging, and banging, and banging, and banging, together

We’ve become a big business
A galaxy merger
The two of us a big bang
God is a real man
God is a dad
God is a dad

Ah the irresistible force met the immovable object oh
Ah the irresistible force met the immovable object
Banging and banging, and banging, and banging, and banging, together

Ah the irresistible force met the immovable object oh
Some may call me a lucky shot
No, but it was not
Banging and banging, and banging, and banging, and banging, together
