he’s in the right lyrics – birth control

i had a chum, alister mason
features like a bubble-gum
we got to be, we got to be friends
’cause he had never had no-one
without a help he’d never resist
the fear of being a whipping-boy
he tried to be a fool that he was
to be another someon
live another someone’s life

right after school we lost sight of each other
the way things often go
he must have looked for a new lord and master
being at the end of his rope
we met again on an unannounced demo
i couldn’t believe my eyes
he sneered at me, gave a sign to the fuzz
and they showed me a cell from inside

(he’s in the right) he’s in the right, babe
as a well-fed busy nark
(he’s in the right) he’s in the right, babe
snoop around with all his heart
(he’s in the right) he’s in the right, babe
as a well-fed busy nark
(he’s in the right) he’s in the right, babe
for the pension fund give blessing to his deal

this demonstration has not been registered!
it’s time to call it a day!
we have everything under control! get back! make way!
o. k. boys! let ’em have it! keep back there!
watch out! catch that one!
don’t let him get away!
break it up! make way!
