Know Your Rights.


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 an aristocrat.
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.

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.
All three of ’em.
And it has been suggested in some quarters that this is not enough!
Well…
Get off the streets!
