The kids are out of school again
Hanging around and fucking with my sound
Don't they know I'm tired and old?
And completely prepared to throw down

I guess they're gonna find out now
They're gonna find out right now
They're gonna find out right now

The kids are on the street again
Looking real cool and breaking all the rules
But I'm drinking tonight and I'm ready to fight
Do they think that I'm some kind of fool?

I guess they're gonna find out now
They're gonna find out right now
They're gonna find out right now

Call off the dogs call off the dogs
I want to go home
Seal off the tombs and stitch up the wombs
Tell the kids they're on their own
Call off the dogs call off the dogs
I've gone to see my king
I'll just kick out the chair and fall through the air
As the angels start to sing:

“Don't you want to go?
Don't you want to let your lovin' grow and grow
Until it's ten feet tall?
Don't you want to touch the cup that fills you up?
Don't spill it in the sun”

Brother don't go to war (right on)
Save the babies and feed the poor (right on)
As leading ladies undress their wounds (right on)
At the sight of your silver spoon (right on)

Right on
Right on

Sister let's fight the power (right on)
Raise your fist and unfold your flower (right on)
We'll move to Berkeley and spread the news (right on)
Catch the herpes and sing the blues (right on)

Right on
Right on

    General CommentPerfect song. Call them off today and every day or the bird will start singing w/o using names, but providing enough information to cause others to scratch their heads and actually think. THAT is what this song is about. No more wiping ones feed on my back. End the games today.
