you can outlaw love and rage
you can paint those cities white
you can watch us all the day
but you can't see us at night!
hey! we'll be clawing at the walls
just beyond your reach
laughing as your kingdom falls
three rogues of ferry beach

three rogues a runnin' from the twisted red and blue
white paint beneath their fingernails
black tar beneath their shoes
copper you can't catch us now
we're safely underground
and we'll be back tomorrow to un-paint the whole town!

c plays the wooden keys and i the wooden strings
and e can fight with pen and paint
each blessed one can sing
and you'd best start runnin' when the lyrics start to flow
you can tell us what to do, we'll tell you where to go

your whitewash paint is induced apathy
in this land of the brave, this home of the free
you know what is legal but we know right from wrong
you'd prefer we keep our love confined to rock and roll songs
but we will not follow you
your laws or your decrees
we will melt whatever you can freeze
and begin to love the world
through this old-time melody
