  • If you obey society's rules
    You will be society's fools
    You'll obey and then disobey
    You'll disobey but then you'll obey
    You thought your mom and dad were fools
    You never wanted to listen in school
    Now your mind won't go where you want to take it
    You got a ride but you're not gonna make it
    You'll never catch up!
    Dad, pass the catsup!
    Clean that mess up! Listen up!
    If you obey society's fools
    You'll be society's tools
    And you'll obey and then disobey
    You'll disobey but then you'll obey
    You thought your mom and dad were queer
    You always wanted egg in your beer
    Now your dog won't go
    When you try to make it
    He's got a bone but he's not gonna shake it
    If you take society's tools
    You will make society's rules
    Which you'll obey and then disobey
    You'll disobey but then you'll obey
    That's all for now
    That's all we know
    This is the end
