And if they've got anything to say
        A          E            A
There's many rebel ears here to listen

           A
But it was Four Tops all night 
     E
With encores from stage right
G                                    A
Charging from the bass knives to the treble
G                                        A
But onstage they ain't got no roots rock rebel
G                                      A     
Onstage they ain't got no...roots rock rebel

E     A     E    A  E          A
Dress back jump back this is a bluebeat attack

Cos it won't get you anywhere
Fooling with your guns
The British Army is waiting out there
An' it weighs fifteen hundred tons

White youth, black youth
Better find another solution
Why not phone up Robin Hood
And ask him for some wealth distribution

Punk rockers in the UK
They won't notice anyway
They're all too busy fighting
For a good place under the lighting

The new groups are not concerned
With what there is to be learned
They got Burton suits, hah, you think it's funny
Turning rebellion into money

All over people changing their votes
Along with their overcoats
If Adolf Hitler flew in today
They'd send a limousine anyway

I'm the all night drug-prowling wolf
Who looks so sick in the sun
I'm the white man in the Palais
Just lookin' for fun

I'm only
Looking for fun
