"Used And Abused" as written by Martin Rotsey, Robert Hirst, James Moginie, Peter Garrett and Andrew James....
I was taken downtown for my part in the demonstration
I was used and abused with the light in my eye at the station
I said
No no You got the wrong man
No no Don't pick on me again
No no I'm going home to my
Family and friends

I'm too busy making a living to make any money
And the living ain't easy and the money disappears in a hurry, now
I said
No no I should,ve stayed at school
No no They're treating me so cruel
No no I'm breaking all the rules
Breaking all the rules

No no

I was talking to the man he said we're gonna make a deal
I was fooled into thinking the paper in my pocket was real
I said
No no You've been taken again
No no You're losing all your friends
No no It's just a matter of sense
It's just a matter of sense

(Hirst/Moginie)
