Lou Rawls - For What It's Worth Lyrics




There's something happening here
And what it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I've got to beware
Think it's time we stop children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's goin' down

There's battle lines being drawn
And nobody's right, if everybody's wrong
Young people speaking their minds
A-getting so much resistance from behind
And we stop, what's that sound
Everybody look what's goin' down

What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singin' songs and a-carryin' signs
Mostly say "hooray for our side"
It's time to stop, hey what's that sound
Everybody look what's goin' down

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
Step outta line, the men come and take you away
You betta stop, hey what's that sound
Everybody look what's goin' now
Stop, hey what's that sound
Everybody look what's goin' now
You betta stop, now, what's that sound
Everybody look what's goin' now
Stop, children

    Magic thanks

  3. cmz8706

    this is such an underrated cover, virtually unknown, and it might be one of the best covers of a song ever lol
    at the very least it's one of the best Buffalo Springfield covers I've ever heard.
