The Dicks – Right Wing / White Ring lyrics

Hey, mothers cryin' in the street
Because their children can't get enough to eat
Hey, daddy, tell me what you say
You send your kid to die and then you pray

Hey, people, see it's what they want
And it's what they need
Hey, people know; you send your kid to El Salvador
(This ain't television;
This ain't high school)

Hey, mother, tell me what you say
You send your kids off to war and then fade away
Hey, daddy, tell me what you know
You send your kids off to war and they don't come home
Hey, people see it's what you want
And it's what you need
Hey, people know; it's what they say
(This ain't television,
This ain't college now, students,
This is the Real Life,
The Real Life! )
