  • 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 the 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 should say wail
    In the meantime hush your face
    Right (quite right) you're bloody well right

    You got the 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 the bloody right to say
    You got the bloody right to say
    You got the bloody right to say
    You got the bloody right to say 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!
