Wikipedia sphere
Wikipedia has an article on
Know Your Rights
This is a public service announcement
With guitar
Know your rights
All three of them

Number one:
You have the right not to be killed
Murder is a crime
Unless it was done
By a policeman
Or an aristocrat
Oh, know your rights

And number two:
You have the right to food money
Providing of course you don't mind a little
Investigation, humiliation
And if you cross your fingers, rehabilitation

Know your rights
These are your rights
[...]

Oh, know these rights

Number three:
You have the right to free speech
As long as
You're not dumb enough to actually try it
Know your rights
These are your rights
Oh, know your rights
These are your rights
All three of them
Ha

And it has been suggested in some quarters
That this is not enough!
Well...
Get off the streets!
Run!

Joe Strummer and Mick Jones
