"White Riot (The Clash cover)" as written by Joe Strummer, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon and Topper Headon....
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?
