Right & Wrong Lyrics

by Joe Jackson

Stop everything
I think I hear the President
The Pied Piper of the TV screen
Is gonna make it simple
And he's got it all mapped out
And illustrated with cartoons

Too hard for clever folks to understand
They're more used to words like
Ideology
But they say it's not the issue
Ideology
They're not talkin' 'bout right or left
They're talkin' 'bout, talkin' 'bout

Right and wrong, do you know the difference
Right and wrong, do you know the difference
Between the right and the left and the east and the west
What you know and the things that you'll never see

So what you think
You like the Yankees or the Mets this year
And what about this latest war of words
And what about the Commies
I saw the news last night
All illustrated with cartoons

So when they come with that opinion poll
They better not use words like
Ideology
Or try to tell me 'bout the issues
Ideology
Whose side are you on
We're talkin' 'bout, talkin' 'bout

Right and wrong, do you know the difference
Right and wrong, do you know the difference
Between the right and the left and the east and the west
What you know and the things that you'll never see

Right and wrong, do you know the difference
Right and wrong, do you know the difference
Between the right and the left and the east and the west
What you know and the things that you'll never see
