Ozzy Osbourne - For What It's Worth Lyrics




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

I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

Battle lines being drawn
Nobody's right if everyone's wrong
People speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind

Yeah, stop children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

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

I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

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

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

You better stop!
Stop
You better stop!
Stop
You better stop!

Ozzy Osbourne For What It's Worth Comments
  1. Grant Fricks

    The song is too appropriate for our times. The original Buffalo Springfield song was released during 1966. It was a time of growing opposition to the war in Vietnam. That was my generation's war. Some of us went and some rich boys got deferments for Pussy Foot.

    I love Ozzy, but this cover sucks

    Chris Conlon

    I think that's just because it was never a great track in it's own right.

    kevin baskin

    @Chris Conlon sorry but I gotta disagree. It's an amazing song by buffalo Springfield, but doesn't work with Ozzy.

    Chris Conlon

    @kevin baskin I like Buffalo Springfield, they were never played often enough.

    Cousin IT

    When you listen to the musicianship, and effort it wasn't bad. If Buffalo Springfield wasn't thrilled The Ozzman would cover them, they need their head bitten off.

    I love, love, love this! Thank-you Ozzy for once again making my day! God bless Ozzy Osbourne.
