Know Your Rights lyrics

This is a public service announcement
With guitar
Know your rights all three of them

Number 1
You have the right not to be killed
Murder is a crime
Unless it was done
By a policeman or aristocrat
Oh, know your rights

And number 2
You have the right to food money
Providing of course
You don't mind a little
Investigation, humiliation
And if you cross your fingers, rehabilitation

Know your rights
These are your rights
Hey, say Wang

Oh, know these rights

Number 3
You have the right to free speech
As long as
You're not dumb enough to actually try it

Know your rights
These are your rights
Oh, know these rights
These are your rights
All three of 'em

And It has been suggested
In some quarters
That this is not enough
Well

Get off the streets
Get off the streets
Run
