White riot, I wanna riot
White riot, a riot of my own
White riot, I wanna riot
White riot, a riot of my own

Black people gotta lot a problems
But they don't mind throwing a brick
White people go to school
Where they teach you how to be thick

And everybody's doing
Just what they're told to
And nobody wants to go to jail

All the power's in the hands of people
Rich enough to buy it
While we walk the street too
Chicken to even try it

Everybody's doing
Just what they're told to
Nobody wants to go to jail

Are you taking over
Or are you taking orders?
Are you going backwards
Or are you going forwards?

Songwriters
Paul Gustave Simonon;Mick Jones;Joe Strummer;Topper Headon
