Know Your Rights

The Clash

This is a public service announcement
With guitar

Know your rights
All three of them

Number one
You have the right not to be killed
Murder is a crime!
Unless it was done
By a policeman or aristocrat
Know your rights

And number two
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
Wang

Know these rights

Number three
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
All three of 'em

It has been suggested in some quarters
That this is not enough!
Well-

Get off the streets
Get off the streets
Run
