Wipe Riot

I was listening to The Clash just recently and one of their songs seemed oddly prescient.

Just start the yootyoob vid and sing along to the words below.


Wipe riot, I want to riot
Wipe riot, a riot of our own
Wipe riot, I want to riot
Wipe riot, a riot of our own

A need a sheet of toilet paper,
But it seems that I am not alone,
So down to the shops I caper
I look and I let out a groan

And everybody’s doing
Just what they’re told to
And nobody wants
To go to jail

Wipe riot, I want to riot
Wipe riot, a riot of our own
Wipe riot, I want to riot
Wipe riot, a riot of our own

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

And everybody’s doing
Just what they’re told to
And nobody wants
To go to jail

Wipe riot, I want to riot
Wipe riot, a riot of our own
Wipe riot, I want to riot
Wipe riot, a riot of our own

Hey, you, standing in line
Are we gonna sign an agreement?

Wipe riot, I want to riot
Wipe riot, a riot of our own
Wipe riot, I want to riot
Wipe riot, a riot of our own
