"Give 'Em Hell Kid" is the second track off My Chemical Romance's second album Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge. The track duration is 2 minutes and 18 seconds, making it the shortest track on the album, excluding the Interlude.

BackgroundEdit

“Give ‘Em Hell, Kid” is a fast-paced track told from the perspective of the primary narrator’s lover. She is unaware that her companion has made a deal with the devil, and is missing his presence in her life.

According to Mikey and Gerard Way, they enjoy playing this song live more than any other: https://twitter.com/mikeyway/statuses/316987298388525056

Frank Iero is known for calling just about everybody, ‘kid.’ He was quoted saying:

"You know, it is weird, but I refer to everybody as ‘kids’. It’s just something that I say. It’s like a term of endearment. When I say ‘kids’ or something like that, I don’t really have an age bracket set to that term. I think, the message of the band is very universal. It’s to find a spark within yourself that makes you wanna get up every day and make this world a better place. And that is really why we started the band. We are not 'kids’ either. We are fucking old and I think that is great thing to take from this band: that you are never to old to drop everything that you were doing and to re-evaluate your life and to make yourself happy.”

This seems to fit the song a little too well, suggesting Frank may have had a heavy hand in the writing…at least the title.

LyricsEdit

[Verse 1]
Oh baby, here comes the sound!
I took a train outta New Orleans and they shot me full of ephedrine
This is how we like to do it in the murder scene
Can we settle up the score?

[Chorus]
If you were here I'd never have a fear
So go on live your life
But I miss you more than I did yesterday

(You're beautiful!)

[Verse 2]
Well I'm a total wreck and almost every day
Like the firing squad or the mess you made
Well, don't I look pretty walking down the street
In the best damn dress I own?

[Chorus]
If you were here I'd never have a fear
So go on live your life
But I miss you more than I did yesterday
You're so far away
So c'mon show me how
Cause I mean this more than words can ever say

[Bridge]
Some might say we are made from the sharpest things you say
We are young and we don't care (oh whoa ow!)
Your dreams and your hopeless hair (oh whoa ow!)
We never wanted it to be this way for all our lives
Do you care (at all)?

[Chorus]
If you were here I'd never have a fear
So go on live your life
But I miss you more than I did yesterday
You're so far away
So c'mon show me how
Cause I mean this more than words can ever say

[Outro]
(What'd you call me?)
(Well, there's no way I'm kissing that guy!)
