Too hot to handle, too cold to hold
They call the Ghostbusters and they're in control
Had them throwing a party for a bunch of children
When all the while, the slime was under the building

So they packed up, regrouped, got a grip, camera quick
Grabbed their proton packs on their backs and they split
Found out about vigo, the master of evil
Try to battle my boys, that's not legal

Yeah, I think this is gonna be another one of those funky ones
Heart, soul, dance

If I was you and you were me, you wanna be winning
If you want something better, you gotta wanna keep your all
'Cause I believe, so much do we, they know we're not kidding
If you feel the same as me yo, you gotta wanna take the ball

Now I find out that nothing is given
Don't know where the cards may fall
All I know is that we've gotta get it
We've gotta make it on our own

Well I guess we're gonna have to take control
On our own
If it's up to us, we've got to take it home
On our own

Now can't you see that all we need to be a go-getter
Gotta make your own decisions, you gotta go for what you know
There comes a time in our lives, you wanna be bigger
Gotta keep, keep on pushing, you gotta learn to take control, yeah

Now I found out that nothing is given
Don't know where the cards may fall
All I know is that we've gotta get it
We've gotta make it on our own

Well I guess we're gonna have to take control
On our own
If it's up to us, we've got to take it home
On our own

Heart, soul, dance

Too hot to handle, too cold to hold
They're called the Ghostbusters and they're in control
Had 'em throwin' a party for a bunch of children
While all the while, the Slimer's under the building

So they packed up the crew, got a grip came quick
Grabbed the coats, all the packs in the bag, and they split
To battle out Vigo, the master of evil
Try to battle my boys? That's not legal

Oh we oh
They're in control
Oh we oh
Ya know it
On our own
I said they're in control

Oh we oh
Ya know it
Oh we oh
Ya know it
On our own

Well I guess we're gonna have to take control
On our own
If it's up to us, we've got to take it home
On our own

Well I guess we're gonna have to take control
On our own
If it's up to us, we've got to take it home
On our own

Oh we oh
Oh we oh
Ya know it
On our own

Oh we oh
Oh we oh
Ya know it
On our own
