Buffalo Springfield

For What It's Worth

There's somethin' happenin' here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun, over there
Tellin' me I got to beware

(I think it's time we)
Stop, children, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's goin' down?

There's battle lines bein' drawn
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
Young people speakin' their minds
Gettin' so much resistance from behind

(It's time we)
Stop, hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's goin' down?

What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singin' songs and carryin' signs
Mostly sayin', "hooray for our side"

(It's time we)
Stop, hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's goin' down?

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
Step out of line, the man come and take you away

(We better)
Stop, hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's goin' down?
(We better)
Stop, hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's goin' down?
(We better)
Stop, now, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's goin' down?
(We better)
Stop, children, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's goin' down?

Springfield Twelve-Gauge

Ain't Worth Nothing

There's something happening here,

what it is, is painfully clear
There's a man with an ego in there,
He's a joke, a fricking nightmare

(I hope it's time soon)
Stop, people, come around,
Can't you see he's a floppy-shoed clown?

There's battle line's being drawn
He's right, and everybody else is wrong
dumb people speaking their minds,
While the nation's taken from behind

(I hope it ends soon)
Stop, people, come around,
Can't you see he's a floppy-shoed clown?

What a field day for his side
Don't see that all he does is lie
Sowing seeds of division and doubt,
Till nobody's sure what anything's about

(I hope it ends soon)
Stop, people, come around,
Can't you see he's a floppy-shoed clown?

Paranoia taking hold,
He likes when we believe what we're told
It started on election day
The man lied, took our free press away

 

(I hope it ends soon)
Stop, people, come around,
Can't you see he's a floppy-shoed clown?

 

(I hope it ends soon)
Stop, people, come around,
Can't you see he's a floppy-shoed clown?
