Everywhere I hear the sound of marching, charging feet, boy
Cause summer's here and the time is right for fighting in the street, boy

But (And) what can a poor boy do
Except to sing for a rock & roll band?
Cause in sleepy London Town there's just no place for
Street fighting man, no

Hey, think the time is right for a palace revolution
But where I live the game to play is compromise solution

Get down

Hey, said my name is called Disturbance
I'll shout and scream, I'll kill the King, I'll rail at all his servants
