“How do you spread your ideas when the radio, the television, the newspapers, the schools, and even the streetcorners seem to be controlled by the people who are controlling you? Start an Alternate U., or a guerrilla theatre, or make up chants that can be easily remembered and passed on.
The best music, in a real functional sense, has always been made without any instruments, arrangements, or rehearsals. This song has all the room you need for new verses, with the essential couple of anchor points of popular agreement. Nobody ever told me afteward that "Yes, I do want somebody over me (or under me), so I won't sing that."
(Nota introduttiva al brano dal libretto che accompagna l’album citato)
I know I'm guilty, and I'm proud,
I know I'm guilty, sing it louder,
Don't try to tell me any lies,
Cause you don't fool me with your jive!

Well it's in-su-bor-di-nation!
In-su-bor-di-nation, (oh yeah)
In-su-bor-di-nation, (a-hah)
In-su-bor-di-nation!

Well I don't want nobody over me,
And I don't want nobody under me,
I'm gonna tell it like it's gotta be,
You better have a little respect for me!

Well it's in-su-bor-di-nation!
In-su-bor-di-nation, (oh yeah)
In-su-bor-di-nation, (a-hah)
In-su-bor-di-nation!

Now you got your reason for your words,
And I got my reason to be heard.
Subordination is a drag,
And liberation is my bag!

Well it's in-su-bor-di-nation!
In-su-bor-di-nation, (oh yeah)
In-su-bor-di-nation, (a-hah)
In-su-bor-di-nation!

I don't want nobody over me,
And I can't use nobody under me,
And I'm gonna tell it like it's gotta be.
You gotta have a little respect for me.

Well it's a-hey, hey, hey, hey,
In-su-bor-di-nation, (oh yeah)
In-su-bor-di-nation, (a-hah)
In-su-bor-di-nation!
In-su-bor-di-nation!
In-su-bor-di-nation!...
