[Hook]
White riot - I wanna riot
White riot - a riot of my own
White riot - I wanna riot
White riot - a riot of my own


[Verse 1]
Black man got a lot a problems
But they don't mind throwing a brick

White people go to school
Where they teach you how to be thick

[Bridge]
And everybody's doing
Just what they're told to
And nobody wants
To go to jail!

[Hook]

[Verse 2]
All the power's in the hands
Of people rich enough to buy it

While we walk the street
Too chicken to even try it

[Bridge]
Everybody's doing
Just what they're told to
Nobody wants
To go to jail!

[Hook]

Are you taking over
Or are you taking orders?
Are you going backwards
Or are you going forwards?

[Hook]
