What’s Truth Got to Do with It?

To the tune of “What’s Love Got to Do with It?

You must understand that there’s likely a plan
To which we react.
What’s in the news is designed to confuse and
That’s a fact.

It’s historical.
Categorical.
You have to see that it really comes down to that.
Oh!

What’s truth got to do, got to do with it?
What’s truth in the face of power and money?
What’s truth got to do, got to do with it?
Who needs the facts when what matters is opinion?

No surprise when we find that most folks are blind
Who have eyes to see.
They’re in a daze all confused by the haze
Of the powers that be.

It’s high-level crime
That works every time.
Why should they stop with the press in their pockets?

What’s truth got to do, got to do with it?
What’s truth in the face of power and money?
What’s truth got to do, got to do with it?
Who needs the facts when what matters is opinion? Ooh!

We should be takin’ on a new direction.
Yes, I have to say
We should be thinkin’ about our own protection.
It’s really the only way.
Oh!

What’s truth got to do, got to do with it?
What’s truth in the face of power and money?
What’s truth got to do, got to do with it?
Who needs the facts when what matters is opinion?
(What’s truth) Got to do, got to do with it?
What’s truth in the face of power and money?
What’s truth got to do, got to do with it?
Who needs the facts when what matters is opinion?

(What’s truth got to do?) Ooh, got to do with it?
(What’s truth in the face of power and money?)
What’s truth got to do, got to do with it?
Who needs the facts when what matters is opinion?
(What’s truth?) Ooh, Ooh.
(Got to do) Got to do with it?
(What’s truth) In the face of power and money?
