For What It's Worth  (Album Version)

For What It's Worth (Album Version)

The Staple Singers

Something happen in here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware

It's time to stop, children, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down

Battle lines being drawn
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind

It's time to stop, children, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down

What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly say, hooray, for our side

It's time to stop, children, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It hurts when you're always afraid
Step out of line, the man comes and takes you away

It's time to stop, children, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down

Stop, children, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, children, what's that sound?
Everybody look what's going down
