I don't understand my fellow white man
Came into this land
and a sickness spread
said: we want a few farms,
we won't do you no harm
want to build a few roads
And before you know it, everything's gone,
and the gold drives .em crazy
Gold'll drive you crazy,
Gold'll drive a man

American dream of history
Stares at me from its pages
Antiquity, modernity
Man building better cages
Now, Mama, don't tell me no lies
I'm still asking why
under such a beautiful sky
So many people die
Putting each other thru such changes
It's outrageous, it's outrageous
It's outrageous

I don't understand my fellow white man
Came into this land
and a sickness spread
Dropped a lot of bombs on Vietnam
And we call it freedom

I don't see how people can practice
such slaughter
How come nothing is done
In the face of widespread torture
Now Mama, won't you just sit back
With your idle chat
Say, don't get hung on that
buy a new suit get a new hat
It's outrageous
So outrageous
Going thru such changes
