  • So you think your schooling's phony
    I guess it's hard not to agree
    You say it all depends on money
    And who is in your family tree

    Right (right), you're bloody well right
    You got a bloody right to say
    Right, you're bloody well right
    You know you got a right to say

    Ha, ha, you're bloody well right
    You know you're right to say
    Yeah, yeah, you're bloody well right
    You know you're right to say
    Me, I don't care anyway

    Write your problems down in detail
    Take them to a higher place
    You've had your cry, no, I shouldn't say wail
    In the meantime hush your face
    Right (quite right) you're bloody well right

    You got a bloody right to say
    Right, you're bloody well right
    You know you got a right to say

    Ha, ha, you're bloody well right
    You know you're right to say
    Yeah, yeah, you're bloody well right
    You know you got a right to say

    You got a bloody right to say
    You got a bloody right to say
    You got a bloody right to say
    You got a bloody right to say, yeah Writer/s: Richard Davies, Roger Hodgson

  • Bill from UsI always daydreamed that Roger Waters wrote Another Brick in the Wall because of this song! It came first.
  • D. Dodge Silver from Wichita, KsIt was a B-side in the US, too. It was just preferred over "Dreamer." I'd prefer a root canal over "Dreamer," so that's understandable.
  • Dave from Wheaton, IlWLS radio used the instrumental open for public service announcements.
  • Zabadak from London, EnglandAnother reason this didn't chart in the UK was that it wasn't released as a single! It was the b-side of Dreamer!
