The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

Gil Scott-Heron

You will not be able to stay home, brother
You will not be able to tune in, turn off and cop out
You will not be able to lose yourself on crack and slip out for beer during commercials, because...
The revolution will not be televised

The revolution will not be televised
The revolution will not be brought to you by Exxon in four parts without commercial interruptions
The revolution will not show you pictures of Bush blowing a bugle
And leading a charge by d**k Cheney, General Schwarzkopf, and Dan Quayle
To eat (Debts?) confiscated from the Freedom National Bank
The revolution... will not be televised

The revolution will not be televised
The revolution will not be brought to you by Masterpiece Theatre
And will not star Marla Maples as Tom Cruise or Oprah as Miss Piggie
The revolution will not say Alka Seltzer to the rescue
The revolution will not Just Do It
The revolution will not make you Slim Fast, because
The revolution will not be televised, brother

There will be no pictures of you and Shaquan
Pushing that shopping cart down the block on a dead run
Or trying to slide that color TV into a stolen ambulance
CNN will not be able predict the winner at 8:32 pm on report from 29 districts
The revolution will not be televised
