Lyrics
I'm sick and tired of hearing things
From uptight, short sighted
Narrow minded hypocrites
All I want is the truth
Just gimme some truth

I've had enough of reading things
By neurotic, psychotic
Pig headed politicians
All I want is the truth
Just gimme some truth

No short haired, yellow bellied, son of Tricky Dicky
Is gonna mother Hubbard soft soap me
With just a pocketful of hope
Money for dope, money for rope

No short haired, yellow bellied, son of Tricky Dicky
Is gonna mother Hubbard soft soap me
With just a pocketful of hope
Money for dope, money for rope

I'm sick to death of seeing things
From tight lipped, condescending
Mama's little chauvinists
All I want is the truth
Just gimme some truth now

I've had enough of watching scenes
Of schizophrenic, ego centric
Paranoiac, prima donnas
All I want is the truth now
Just gimme some truth

No short haired, yellow bellied, son of Tricky Dicky
Is gonna mother Hubbard soft soap me
With just a pocketful of hope
It's money for dope, money for rope

Ah, I'm sick and tired of hearing things
From uptight, short sighted
Narrow minded hypocrites
All I want is the truth now
Just gimme some truth now

I've had enough of reading things
By neurotic, psychotic
Pig headed politicians
All I want is the truth now
Just gimme some truth

All I want is the truth now
Just gimme some truth
(Gimme some truth)
All I want is the truth now
(Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme)
Just gimme some truth
(Gimme, gimme truth)

All I want is the truth
(Truth, truth, truth)
Just gimme some truth

Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme
Gimme, gimme, gimme some truth
