I have know this preacherman
For a long time, he was a good man
I have known this judge
For a long time, he was a good man
I have known this teacher
For a long time, he was a good man too
But because of the drugs
They've been taking secretly
Them are in loony houses today

We cannot stand aside and look
While the nation is going down the drain
While the nation is going down the drain

Up with hope, down with dope
Up with hope, down with dope
Up with hope, down with dope
We cannot stand aside and look
While the nation is going down the drain.
We really, really cannot stand aside and look while the nation is going down the drain
Oh Yo

I am telling you now
Cocaine, no good for you
Liquor, no good for you
You go sniffling them glue
No good for you
They give it to you and say it's the sense of knowledge

But I known I've been around
For a while

I cannot stand aside
And look while the nation
And look while the nation
Is going down the drain
Oh yo yo yo

Up with hope, down with dope
