People movin' out, people movin' in
Why? Because of the color of their skin
Run, run, run but you sho' can't hide

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

Well, the only person talking about love thy brother
Is the preacher
And it seems nobody's interested in learning
But the teacher

Segregation, determination, demonstration, integration
Aggravation, humiliation, obligation to our nation

Ball of confusion
That's what the world is today, hey
The sale of pills are at an all time high
Young folks walking 'round with their heads in the sky

Cities aflame in the summertime
And oh, and the beat goes on

Evolution, revolution, gun control, sound of soul
Shooting rockets to the moon, kids growing up too soon
Politicians say more taxes will solve everything

So round and round and round we go
Where the world's headed, nobody knows?

And the band played on

Oh, Great Googa Mooga
Can't you hear me talking to you?

Just a ball of confusion
That's what the world is today, hey
Fear in the air, tension everywhere
Unemployment rising fast, the Beatles' new record's a gas

And the only safe place to live is on an Indian reservation

And 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

Oh, Great Googa Mooga
Can't you hear me talking to you?

Just ball of confusion
That's what the world is today, hey
Ball of confusion
That's what the world is today, hey

Ball of confusion
That's what the world is today, hey
Ball of confusion
That's what the world is today, hey

Ball of confusion
That's what the world is today, hey
