Know Your Rights Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

This is a public service announcement
With guitar
Know your rights all three of them

Number one
You have the right not to be killed
Murder is a crime
Unless it was done
By a policeman or aristocrat
Oh, know your rights

And number two
You have the right to food money
Providing of course you don't mind a little
Investigation, humiliation
And if you cross your fingers
Rehabilitation

Know your rights
These are your rights
Hey said, "Wang"
Oh, know these rights

Number three
You have the right to free speech
As long as you're not
Dumb enough to actually try it

Know your rights
These are your rights
Know your rights
These are your rights
All three of 'em

And it has been suggested in some quarters
That this is not enough!
Well

Get off the streets
Get off the streets

Songwriters
HEADON, TOPPER / JONES, MICK / SIMONON, PAUL / STRUMMER, JOE
