Stop everything
I think I hear the President
The Pied Piper of the TV screen
Is gonna make it simple
And he's got it all mapped out
And illustrated with cartoons

And what about this latest war of words
And what about the Commies
I saw the news last night
All illustrated with cartoons
So when they come with that opinion poll

Or try to tell me 'bout the issues

Whose side are you on
We're talkin' 'bout
Right and wrong, do you know the difference
Right and wrong, do you know the difference 
'Tween the right and the left and the east and the west
What you know and the things that you'll never see
Where are we?
Right and wrong, do you know the difference
Right and wrong, do you know the difference 
'Tween the right and the left and the east and the west
What you know and the things that you'll never see
