    Post: Punk: Attitude
     
    This is a public service announcement
    With guitar
    Know your rights all three of them

    Number 1
    You have the right not to be killed
    Murder is a crime!
    Unless it was done by a
    Policeman or aristocrat
    Know your rights

    And number 2
    You have the right to food money
    Providing of course you
    Dont mind a little
    Investigation, humiliation
    And if you cross your fingers
    Rehabilitation

    Know your rights
    These are your rights
    Wang

    Know these rights

    Number 3
    You have the right to free
    Speech as long as youre not
    Dumb enough to actually try it.

    Know your rights
    These are your rights
    All three of em
    It has been suggested
    In some quarters that this is not enough!
    Well..............................

    Get off the streets
    Get off the streets
    Run
    You dont have a home to go to
    Smush

    Finally then I will read you your rights

    You have the right to remain silent
    You are warned that anything you say
    Can and will be taken down
    And used as evidence against you

    Listen to this
    Run


    This is a Joe Strummer statement which I reproduce in support of the Postal Workers striking later this week (even though their action will deny me my ritual Friday New Statesman read). And yes, I have just been watching Don Lett's singularly enlightening documentary Punk: Attitude on More4.
