Lyrics
Rat-a-tat-tat I’m headed down to Wall Street Come down and bring your drum Yeah, I’m headed down to Wall Street Come down and bring your drum, bring your drum Going to bang my snare Until revolution comes Rat-a-tat-tat I’m going to beat the blues away Show the one percent The ninety-nine still have a say Come on bang your drum Bring a friend along Big Business wants to play It’s a non-violent protest We’ll have to see what comes I don’t like violence And we don’t need no guns, need no guns I vote for independence And be free to bang my drum I’m gonna occupy your street Rat-a-tat-tat Pound my drum, ‘til you retreat Rat-a-tat-tat Rat-a-tat-tat Anybody home? Rat-a-tat-tat I’m not alone ©2011 Baker/Quin
