When I see a group of people I wonder what kind of group it is

I see a group that’s so large that it can’t be ignored
(The group you’re looking at could be a horde)
I see another group plotting the government’s fall
(If I were you I’d call that group a cabal)
I see a group that inherited its social class
(That group is often described as a caste)

I see a group that stays together, with others they won’t speak
(That’s a group that you could call a clique)
What if I want another word for a clique I see
(The word you’re looking for is coterie)
If a group surrounds one person and does what he wants them to
(That is an entourage or a retinue)

Now when I see a group of people, I’m gonna know what kind of group it is
