There's a campaign of hate
It's waiting at the school gates
For what I am not aware 
Must be what you wrote 
What you write, you swore that you'd swear 

Now remember why you came
Not to play follow the leader, no no 

Poor kids dressing like they're rich (Mods!)
Rich kids dressing like they're poor (oh my god!)
 White kids talking like they're black 
I tried it with Charlene 
And I spent three days on my back 

But she said "Baby
I like the cut of your J.I.B."
Oh don't believe them when they say
That you don't get nothing for free
It's all for free
 Follow me now

There's a campaign of hate
It's waiting at the school gates

There's a campaign of hate
It's waiting at the school gates

There's a campaign of hate
It's waiting at the school gates

There's a campaign of hate
It's waiting at the school gates

There's a campaign of hate
It's waiting at the school gates

There's a campaign of hate
