You Don't Have to Take This Crap

With all the mud being flung in Pennsylvania and the travesty that was that horrid ABC debate, I've been humming this song a lot this past week -- one of my fave Style Council songs from Our Favorite Shop (which I just repurchased from Amazon's MP3 store, complete with all the b-sides that I've got lingering on my shelf). This one's a pretty good live rendition from the Old Grey Whistle Test.

You don't have to take this crap
You don't have to sit back and relax
You can actually try changing it
I know we've always been taught to rely
Upon those in authority -
But you never know until you try
How things just might be -
If we came together so strongly

Are you gonna try to make this work
Or spend your days down in the dirt
You see things can change -
YES an' walls can come tumbling down!
