I'm not doing something I'm supposed to do
I'm doing something I'm not supposed to
I don't know about that
I don't know about that
I don't know nothing bout nothing like that
Destroyed my people are
Destroyed my people are
Destroyed for lack of knowledge
I wonder if I'm happy
Wonder if I'm mad
I wonder why the whole wide world is so wonderfully sad
I don't know bout that but I can tell you this
That when I drink a lot of beer y'know I gotta piss... off
People should be pissed off
People should be pissed off
For lack of knowledge
Read read read read read read read everything you can read and
Learn learn learn learn learn learn learn everything you can learn
Cause there is no tomorrow like today
And there is no today like tomorrow
And they will stick you and they will stick you in the end

Gordon gano: vocal, acoustic guitar
