lyrics

They say we're all such naughty children and we really should be sitting in school.
With our minds up in the clouds and they're eyes on something better, it's so cruel.

They'll just throw us in the weather
(birds and bees could do it better).
Back to learning how to gather,
and there's really nothing better to do.

Man it would be very nice,
Please do not lead with your right.
The sea-shores seen too many bombs,
and Peter Piper's out a job.
My tongue's tied over where we've gone
wrong.

They live the lives of fairy-tales with trophy wives and treasured things, so handy.
"Take from the poor!" thundered the King, not Robin Hood, but in between--modern Candide.

When the music's all you've got
(and your souls about to rot).
Burning in the Late June Riot,
it's time to make some changes indeed.

Man it would be very nice,
Please do not lead with your right.
The sea-shores seen too many bombs,
and Peter Piper's out a job.
My tongue's tied over where we've gone
wrong.

(thundering King guitar solo)

(thundering drum and tuba jazz interlude)

(angry hemiola trumpet/tuba feature)

When the music's all you've got
(and your souls about to rot).
Burning in the Late June Riot,
it's time to make some changes indeed.

One! Two! Three! Four!

Man it would be very nice,
Please do not lead with your right.
The sea-shores seen too many bombs,
and Peter Piper's out a job.
My tongue's tied over where we've gone
wrong.
