Everywhere is freaks and hairies
Dykes and fairies, tell me where is sanity

Till there are no rich no more?

The fact is, WE did "Change the World." And, our children and grandchildre n will have to clean up our mess.

...the "producers" of course being anyone who looks good in a suit and gets high on his own f*rts.
Another great son!
I wish we had changed the world. All that hope of the era ended up with nothing.
Love the lyrics. The "poor" feed off the producers in society.
Bitcoins the solution, the irony is lost on most of you
What's amazing is that even after all these years this song still ring true.
Love this song how it sounds ^.^
Marxism and Alvin Lee

Wouldn't we all...?

'tax the rich, feed the poor, until no one's rich, anymore'...t h e n what genius?
Love this song!!
You don't just go out and change the world. You solve a problem that you notice and over time it revolutioniz e s the world if it's significant enough.
The best 1970's song.
WHATT A FIFIN ANTHEM THEN N NOW
SOOO TRUE
LOVE THIS SONG 4 EVER N EVER
Alvin now fastest guitar player - in heaven.
Jammin wid Alvin Lee, still & totally
Alvin lee fastest lead ever Storm m
The best tune yet.. Imaginative yet all inspiring. Best lead lyrics, lead and accompanimen t s for a 5 min tune!!
I never realized they said dykes and fairies, lol. Great riff, great song, lazy lyrics, but I'll forgive them. I mean, all classic rock fans have to give a pass sometimes, right?
Lyrics are rascist.
A great guitar riff with poor lyrics...sti l l a good song!
Love this song .. the guitar the bass, i dance to this.
onetuffchick
Ummm....I really like the guitar, but they sound anti-gay. Which bothers me.
RIP Alvin Lee. A great guitarist.

Dykes and fairies are still dykes fairies. Just sayin
One of my favorite guitar solos of all time. RIP Alvin Lee, sorry to see you leave so soon.
Such a true same for that time as well as today... Top 5 tune ever!!

Where is sanity? The more things change, the more they stay the same.
What an awesome song!
The world's best rock tune. Lyrics unbeatable. Lead guitaring and vocals amazing. What more!!
Beat this one..Tough
This is Obama policy
Great that's the way it has to be
Rich people are more fortunate
Than others
$$$$$$$$$$$$ $ $ $
Less fortunate belongs to god
Hmmm. Great music, but effed up lyrics.
Also reminds me somehow of the Doobie Bros. and Guns N' Roses. Tens Years After might have been more influential than they might receive credit for.

Absolutely on target with lyrics some 40 years later not to mention a wonderful guitar.

Funny how the singer turns into Chris Rock :)
How can you people praise the lyrics above all, when you have THAT mellow guitar carelessly coaxing you into a bliss...

The poignant lyrics are just a plus. I tell you, if this was sang in Japanese, I'd still like it just as much.
wow...how eerily this has become the norm. : /
It's funny how this song was released in 1971 and till this day all the quotes apply to where we stand right now
You don't just go out and change the world. It takes a revolutionar y breakthrough , which has a one permille chance of ever happening.
What happened to change things? Nothing. What will happen? Nothing. Such prescience they (we) all had. Some still do.
This guitar just never gets old. Damn. So good.
