What about us

What about us*

You poisoned my sweet water, and you cut down my green trees,
and the food you fed my children is the cause for their disease.
My world is so damn crumbling down and the air’s not got to breathe.
But those of us who carry on, we gotta do something!

It’s your nations and your borders, cause you wanna maintain your laws and orders,
your newspapers twist the truth around.
Until the truth is hard to be found, cause all you really care for is yourself!
Yeah – yourself!

But what you gonna do about us! What you gonna do about us?!
Hey Mister Businessman, whatcha gonna do about us?!
Hey Mister Judgeman, whatcha gonna do about us?!
Hey Mrs. Politician, whatcha gonna do about us?!
Hey Mister policeman, whatcha gonna do about us?!

Well I work in your factories and I studied in your schools,
I built your penetentiaries and your military too.
I can feel the future burning down as the world is passed around.
But if we stand up for what wo believe we will win someday…

What you gonna do about us! What you gonna do about us?!
Hey Mister Businessman, whatcha gonna do about us?!
Hey Mister Judgeman, whatcha gonna do about us?!
Hey Mrs. Politician, whatcha gonna do about us?!
Hey Mister policeman, whatcha gonna do about us?!

Yes I smoke marihuana, but I can’t look behind your walls,
and most what I do believe is against one of your laws.
Dadadadada…but I’m going to be free,
cause all your rules and regulations…they don’t mean a thing to me!

What you gonna do about us! What you gonna do about us?!
Hey Mister Businessman, whatcha gonna do about us?!
Hey Mister Judgeman, whatcha gonna do about us?!
Hey Mrs. Politician, whatcha gonna do about us?!
Hey Mister policeman, whatcha gonna do about us?!
