Lyrics

People moving out, people moving in
Why, because of the color of their skin
Run, run, run but you sure can't hide

An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth
Vote for me and I'll set you free
Rap on, brother, rap on

Well, the only person talking about love thy brother is the preacher
it seems nobody's interested in learning but the teacher


Segregation, determination, demonstration, integration
Aggravation, humiliation, obligation to our nation

Ball of confusion (katie on low octave of liz)
that's what the world is today
hey, hey

Ball of confusion
that's what the world is today
hey, hey

Come in right away
The sale of pills are at an all time high
Young folks walking round with their heads in the sky
The cities ablaze in the summer time
And oh, the beat goes on

Evolution, revolution, gun control, sound of soul
Shooting rockets to the moon, kids growing up too soon
Politicians say no regulations will solve everything...

So, round and around and around we go
Where the world's headed, nobody knows

And the band played on

Oh, great googa-looga, can't you hear me talking to you sayin’


ball of confusion
that's what the world is today
hey, hey

ball of confusion
that's what the world is today
hey, hey

Fear in the air, tension everywhere
Unemployment rising fast, Beiber’s new record's a gas
And it’s not even safe to live on the Lakota Nation
And the band played on
HORN LINE

Eve of destruction, tax deduction, city inspectors, bill collectors
Mod clothes in demand, population out of hand, suicide, too many bills
Hippies moving to the hills, people all over the world………….. are shouting, end the war

And the band played on

Instrumental 8 counts of 4

horn line
organ
carlos gtr

Great googa-looga, can't you hear me talking to you sayin'
ball of confusion
That's what the world is today, hey, hey
Let me hear ya, let me hear ya, let me hear ya


ball of confusion
That's what the world is today, hey, hey
Let me hear ya, let me hear ya, let me hear ya


ball of confusion
That's what the world is today, hey, hey


Let me hear ya, let me hear ya, let me hear ya, let me hear ya, let me hear ya
Ball of confusion

hey hey
hey hey
hey hey
