People moving out, people moving in
Why, because of the color of their skin
Run, run, run, but you just cant hide

An eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth
Vote for me and Ill set you free
Rap on, brother, rap on

Well, the only person talking about
Loving thy brother is the preacher
And it seems nobodys interested
In learning, but the teacher

Segregation, demonstration
Integration, determination
Aggravation, humiliation
Obligation to our nation

Ball of confusion
Thats what the world is today
Hey, hey

The sale of pills is at an all time high
Young folks walk with their heads in the sky
The cities aflame in the summertime
And, oh, the beat goes on

Evolution, revolution, gun control
The sound of soul, shooting rockets to the moon
Kids growing up too soon
Politicians say, "More taxes will solve everything"
The band played on

So, 'round and around and around we go
Where the worlds headed, nobody knows

Oh, Great Googamooga
Cant you hear me talking to you
Just a ball of confusion
Thats what the world is today
Hey, hey

Fear in the air, tension everywhere
Unemployment rising fast
The Beatles new records a gas
And the only safe place to live
Is on an Indian reservation
The band played on

Eve of destruction, tax deduction
City inspectors, bill collectors, mod clothes in demand
Population out of hand, suicide, too many bills
Hippies moving to the hills
People all over the world are shouting, "End the war"
And the band played on

Great Googamooga
Cant you hear me talking to you
Just a ball of confusion
Thats what the world is today
Yeah, yeah

Just a ball of confusion,
I tell you thats what the world is today
Yeah, yeah
Just a ball of confusion, oh
