You poisoned my sweet water. 
You cut down my green trees. 
The food you fed my children 
Was the cause of their disease. 

My world is slowly fallin' down 
And the airs not good to breathe. 
And those of us who care enough, 
We have to do something....... 

[Chorus]
Oh.......oh What you gonna do about me? 
Oh.......oh What you gonna do about me? 

Your newspapers, 
They just put you on. 
They never tell you 
The whole story. 

They just put your 
Young ideas down. 
I was wonderin' could this be the end 
Of your pride and glory? 

[Chorus] 

I work in your factory. 
I study in your schools. 
I fill your penitentiaries. 
And your military too! 

And I feel the future trembling, 
As the word is passed around. 
"If you stand up for what you do believe, 
Be prepared to be shot down." 

[Chorus]
 
And I feel like a stranger 
In the land where I was born 
And I live like an outlaw. 
An' I'm always on the run.......................... 

An I'm always getting? busted 
And I got to take a stand........ 
I believe the revolution 
Must be mighty close at hand....................... 

[Chorus]

I smoke marijuana 
But I can't get behind your wars. 
And most of what I do believe 
Is against most of your laws 

I'm a fugitive from injustice 
But I'm goin' to be free. 
Cause your rules and regulations 
They don't do the thing for me 

[Chorus]
 
And I feel like a stranger 
In the land where I was born 
And I live just like an outlaw. 
An' I'm always on the run.......................... 

And though you may be stronger now 
My time will come around 
You keep adding to my numbers 
As you shoot my people down 

[Chorus: x2]
