The Lyrics

More obscene than the cussing is all the smoking in the movies. How come they don't edit THAT for T.V.?
I don't mind
Dirty words on my T. V. show
There's fines
If you say one on the radio

And they dub in "nice" words
That don't fit very well
It's a funny as hell
Cause the Feds are uptight
The Feds are uptight

Sometimes
There's worse than what you hear or say
There's crimes
And killers who will get away

But I know if they cuss
At the wrong place and time
FCC will step in
Cause the Feds are uptight
The Feds are uptight

I know on a show the grey areas sometimes blur
DJs get canned, when slips of tongue do occur

I don't find
Bleeping words fixing all that's wrong
So blind
Can't say "Frig it" in a song

And I know sometimes we
Must get in on the fight
Or they'll censor the press
Cause the Feds are uptight
The Feds are uptight

Sometimes
There's worse than what you hear or say
There's crimes
And wars to fight so far away

But I know if they cuss
At the wrong place and time
FCC will step in
Cause the Feds are uptight
The Feds are uptight
The Feds are uptight
The Feds are uptight
