"Side O' the Road" as written by and John Fogerty....
Last night
I saw a fire burning on
The palace lawn.
O'er the land
The humble subjects watched in mixed
Emotion.

[Chorus:]
Who is burnin'?
Who is burnin'?
Effigy.
Who is burnin'?
Who is burnin'?
Effigy.

Last night
I saw the fire spreadin' to

The palace door.
Silent majority
Weren't keepin' quiet
Anymore.

[Chorus]

Last night
I saw the fire spreadin' to
The country side.
In the mornin'
Few were left to watch
The ashes die.

[Chorus]

Why?
Why?
Why?
Effigy.
