(do do do do-do do do!
Do do do do-do do do!
I rebel music;
I rebel music.)
Why can't we roam (oh-oh-oh-oh) this open country? (open country)
Oh, why can't we be what we wanna be? (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
We want to be free. (wanna be free)

3 o'clock roadblock - curfew,
And i've got to throw away -
Yes, i've got to throw away -
A yes-a, but i've got to throw away
My little herb stalk!

I (rebel music) - yeah, i'm tellin' you! -
(i) i rebel music (rebel music). oh-ooh!

Take my soul (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
And suss - and suss me out (suss me out). oh-ooh!
Check my life (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh),
If i am in doubt (i'm in doubt); i'm tellin':
3 o'clock roadblock - roadblock - roadblock,
And "hey, mr. cop! ain't got no - (hey) hey! (hey, mr cop) -
(what ya sayin' down there?) - (hey) hey! (hey, mr cop) -
Ain't got no birth certificate on me now."

(do do do!)
I (rebel music) - yeah, i'm tellin' you! -
(i) i rebel music (rebel music).

Oh-ooh! take my soul (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
And suss - and suss me out (suss me out). oh-ooh!
Check my life (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh),
If i am in doubt (i'm in doubt); i'm tellin':
3 o'clock roadblock - roadblock - roadblock,
And "hey, mr. cop! ain't got no - (hey) hey! (hey, mr cop) -
(what ya sayin' down there?) - (hey) hey! (hey, mr cop) -
Ain't got no birth certificate on me now."

    Why are we being restricted from going where we want, in this country. Policing my entry and exit, i never needed id before, now, i need id or birth certificate, to walk or ride in what's now a controled state, 3 o'clock, road block, what's natural to me ,is suspect to you and now, i've got to throw away, my little herb stalk.
