She washed her hands
Three hundred times
But still they're dripping red
We caught her in
The pauper's pit
She stole the prince's head
Cursing blasphemy
O mercy me
He staggered like a chicken

They lynched him
They left him flinching
Running scared
Took their seats
They kept on knitting

God bless the noble savage
As he swaggers
As he sweats
He's making bets
On who is next
He don't care about the colour

So many here to choose from

First they rounded up the reds
But I'm not red so

Then they rounded up the blacks
But I'm not black so

And they rounded up the gypsies
And the junkies and donkeys
Now I'm scared to whistle Swannee
'Cos they'll ask me for my spit

It's the garden that we walk in
And it's dying
So we cut it down
We're drowning now
There's no way out
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down
All fall down
All fall down
All fall down

It's the garden that we walk in
And it's dying
So we cut it down
We're drowning now
There's no way out
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down
All fall down
All fall down
All fall down

It's the garden that we walk in
And it's dying
So we cut it down
We're drowning now
There's no way out
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down
All fall down
All fall down
All fall down

It's the garden that we walk in
And it's dying
So we cut it down
We're drowning now
There's no way out
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down
We all fall down
All fall down
All fall down
All fall down
