Everywhere is freaks and hairies
Dykes and fairies, tell me where is sanity
Tax the rich, feed the poor
Till there are no rich no more

I'd love to change the world
But I don't know what to do
So I'll leave it up to you


Population keeps on breeding
Nation bleeding, still more feeding economy
Life is funny, skies are sunny
Bees make honey, who needs money, monopoly


I'd love to change the world
But I don't know what to do
So I'll leave it up to you


World pollution, there's no solution
Institution, electrocution
Just black and white, rich or poor
Them and us, stop the war


I'd love to change the world
But I don't know what to do
So I'll leave it up to you

    I think the chorus and probably verses as well are tinged with a bit of sarcasm and frustration. It is certainly frustrating to me to know that this song was written when I was an infant and is still relavent now that I am a middle aged man. Certainly as long as we live in a world where greed is king and human beings are seen as commodities, things will not change. The meek may inherit the earth but they won't take it by force, and their inheritance will have been spent and worthless when the get it. I'll leave it up to you is exemplary of the defeatist attitude that most of the beaten down masses seem to have. Not to get political but obama said yes we can not yes I can. I think it was eisenhower that said, when pressed for reform, you have to make me do it!
