Compared to What

From 1969, pianist Les McCann and saxophonist Eddie Harris performing Gene McDaniel's Compared to What with the lyric that continues to resonate to this day:

The President, he's got his war
Folks don't know just what it's for
Nobody gives us rhyme or reason
Have one doubt, they call it treason
We're chicken-feathers, all without one nut. God damn it!
Tryin' to make it real — compared to what? (Sock it to me)
