Starting out with berkeley free speechAnd later on at people’s parkThe winds of change fanned into flamesStudent demonstrations sparkDown to isla vista where police felt so harassedThey called the special riot squad of the l. a. county sheriffWell there’s a riot going onThere’s a riot going onThere’s a riot going onStudent demonstration timeThe violence spread down south to where jackson state brothersLearned not to say nasty things about southern policemen’s mothersNothing much was said about it and really next to nothing doneThe pen is mightier than the sword, but no match for a gunWell there’s a riot going onThere’s a riot going onWell there’s a riot going on’cause it’s student demonstration timeAmerica was stunned on may 4, 1970When rally turned to riot up at kent state universityThey said the students scared the guardThough the troops were battle dressedFour martyrs earned a new degreeThe bachelor of bulletsI know we’re all fed up with useless wars and racial strifeBut next time there’s a riot, well, you best stay out of sightWell there’s a riot going onThere’s a riot going onWell there’s a riot going onStudent demonstration timeStay away when there’s a riot going onStudent demonstrationStay away when there’s a riot going onStudent demonstrationStay away when there’s a riot going onStudent demonstrationStay away when there’s a riot going onIt’s student demonstrationStay away when there’s a riot going onStudent demonstrationStay away when there’s a riot going onStudent demonstrationStay away when there’s a riot going onIt’s student demonstrationStay away when there’s a riot going onStudent demonstration
