The Revolution Will Not Be Televised – lyrics



gas canisters hitting heads
stray dogs and cats dropping dead
poisoned by their poisoned gas
for protecting the trees and grass
the revolution will not be televised

they’re not soldiers, they’re boys and girls
let’s sing their praises all around the world
thousands march to join their ranks
shoulder to shoulder against the tanks
the revolution will not be televised

they gas and hurt and maim at will
water cannons with the power to kill
radio silence and so much dead air
nothing to see, folks, nothing wrong here
the revolution will not be televised

hundreds wounded, blinded, deaf
behind closed doors they no longer laugh
eternal is their wisdom, their spirit so free
now get back to watching pretty girls on TV
the revolution will not be televised
