Ain't gonna let nobody, turn me around
Turn me around, turn me around
Ain't gonna let nobody, turn me around
Keep on a walking, keep on a talking
Gonna build a brand new world

Ain't gonna let the administration turn me around
Turn me around, turn me around
Ain't gonna let the administration turn me around
Keep on a walking, keep on a talking
Gonna build a brand new world

Ain't gonna let no first-strike policy turn me around
Turn me around, turn me around
Ain't gonna let no first-strike policy turn me around
Keep on a walking, keep on a talkin
Gonna build a brand new world

Ain't gonna let Indira Ghandi turn me around
Turn me around, turn me around
Ain't gonna let Indira Ghandi (how'd she get that name?) 'round
Keep on a walking, keep on a talking
Gonna build a brand new world.

Ain't gonna let that Henry Kissenger turn me around
Turn me around, turn me around
Ain't gonna let that killer Kissenger turn me around
Keep on a walking, keep on a-talking
Gonna build a brand new world.

Ain't gonna let nobody, turn me around
Turn me around, turn me around
Ain't gonna let nobody, turn me around
Keep on a singing, keep on a swinging
Gonna build a brand new world
