I'm Going To Say It Now (Live Version) - Phil Ochs

Oh I am just a student,

sir, and only want to learn

 

But it's hard to read through the risin'

smoke of the books that you like to burn

So I'd like to make a promise

and I'd like to make a vow

That when I've got something to say, sir,

I'm gonna say it now

 

Oh you've given me a number

and you've taken off my name

 

To get around this campus

why you almost need a plane

 

And you're supporting Chang Kai-Shek,

while I'm supporting Mao

So when I've got something to say, sir,

I'm gonna say it now

 

I wish that you'd make up your mind,

I wish that you'd decide

 

That I should live as freely as

those who live outside

 

Cause we also are entitled to

the rights to be endowed

And when I've got something to say,

sir, I'm gonna say it now

 

Ooh, you'd like to be my father

 

you'd like to be my Dad

 

And give me kisses when I'm good

and spank me when I'm bad

 

But since I've left my parents

I've forgotten how to bow

So when I've got something to say, sir,

I'm gonna say it now

 

And things they might be different

if I was here alone

 

But I've got a friend or two

who no longer live at home

 

And we'll respect our elders

just as long as they allow

That when I've got something to say,

sir, I'm gonna say it now

 

I've read of other countries

where the students take a stand

 

Maybe even help to overthrow

the leaders of the land

 

Now I wouldn't go so far to say

we're also learnin' how

But when I've got something to say, sir,

I'm gonna say it now

 

So keep right on a talkin'

and tell us what to do

 

If nobody listens my apologies to you

 

And I know that you were younger once

cause you sure are older now

And when I've got something to say,

sir, I'm gonna say it now

 

Oh I am just a student sir,

and only want to learn

 

But it's hard to read

through the risin' smoke from the books

that you like to burn

 

So I'd like to make a promise

and I'd like to make a vow

That when I've got something to say, sir,

I'm gonna say it now
