Poor Doug Jewett, his son ran away
He couldn't take it needed someone else to blame
Let's close down all of the awful nasty clubs
With no place to go the kids will have to come home

Cause there's serious trouble at city hall
Cause the city attorney's got a broken heart
His fascist tendencies come to the fore
And we can't listen to our music no more

They'll use any excuse to shut down the clubs
But Judas Priest and festival seats, it's just a bunch of noise
Someone stabbed near First and Pike, almost every day
We should close downtown, it's a dangerous place

Cause there's serious trouble at city hall
Cause the city attorney's got a broken heart
His fascist tendencies come to the fore
And we can't listen to our music no more

Poor Doug Jewett, now he's gonna run for mayor
Unfair to white folks busing and graffiti are his thing
Make this city safe, for white folk to walk around
Please present your Jewett ID card at the county line

Cause there's serious trouble at city hall
Cause the city attorney's got a broken heart
His fascist tendencies come to the fore
And we can't listen to our music no more
