Nowzah! (I Don't Accept Your Rules)

from by O Sister!



Do what I want you to do,
Get a good job
for making money.
Buy this, buy that.
You need a car.
That's old stuff, so throw it out.
Hurry up.
You must succeed
But don't move
Refuse any change.
There's no life beyond the screen.

Don't read between the lines.
Don't welcome people from outside.
Don't be curious.
Don't waste your time.
Eat this food, wear these clothes.
Believe the news, believe in God.
Be afraid and close the door.

Oh, tell me boy, what's in your head?
Stupidity is worse than wickedness.

I'm not like you.
Ain't gonna follow you.
I disagree and know that I'm not alone.

You in charge…
Stop being cruel!
I'll go out and say out loud: I don't accept your rules.
