Well I don't know what you think we do with our time,
Do you think we don't know what's wrong or what's right?
Do you think that we're not all there just because of how we cut our hair?
You treat us like we're living worthless lives.


No!

Governments making new laws all of the time,
Try to tell 'em that being young's not a crime,
We try to tell 'em but they just don't care,
This fucked up system's so unfair,
Pretty soon we won't have any rights.

And if you think you've got us cornered know if you think you've got us figured out,
Well it won't be long before you hear us shout,
I don't wanna be,
A SECOND CLASS CITIZEN!
How can you call me,
A SECOND CLASS CITIZEN!
No I don't want to be,
A SECOND CLASS CITIZEN!
Anymore.
No I don't wanna be,
A SECOND CLASS CITIZEN!
So how can you call me,
A SECOND CLASS CITIZEN!
No I don't want to be,
A SECOND CLASS CITIZEN!
Anymore, not anymore.

Well I don't know what they think we do with our time,
Try to tell 'em that being young's not a crime,
We try to tell 'em but they just don't care,
This fucked up system's so unfair,
You treat us like we're living worthless lives.

And so you think you've got us cornered know well you think you've got us figured out,
Well it won't be long before you hear us shout,
I don't wanna be,
A SECOND CLASS CITIZEN!
How can you call me,
A SECOND CLASS CITIZEN!
No I don't want to be,
A SECOND CLASS CITIZEN!
Anymore.
Hey I don't wanna be,
A SECOND CLASS CITIZEN!
So how can you call me,
A SECOND CLASS CITIZEN!
No I don't want to be,
A SECOND CLASS CITIZEN!
Anymore, not anymore.

No!

I don't wanna be,
I don't wanna be,
I don't wanna be,
I don't wanna be,
I don't wanna be,
I don't wanna be,
I don't wanna be,
I don't wanna be.
