19 Which side are you on?

Which side are you on
which side are you on
are you on the other side from me
which side are you on?

Are you on the side of atrocity
are you on the side of perjury
are you on the side of misery
which side are you on?, ....

I ask you -
which side are you on (etc)

Are you on the side that don't like life
are you on the side of racial strife
are you on the side that beats your wife
which side are you on?

I ask you -
(chorus)

Are you on the sidewho locks the door
are you on the side who loves the Law
are you on the side which wants a war
which side are you on?

I ask you -

(chorus)

Are you on the side who loves to hunt
are you on the side of the National Front
are you on the side who calls me cunt
which side are you on?

I ask you -

(chorus)

Are you on the side of suicide
are you on the side of homicide
are you on the side of genocide
which side are you on?

I ask you -

(chorus).
