"Burnin' and Looting"

Recommended Posts

Guest willy.wonka

This morning I woke up in a curfew

Oh god, I was a prisoner too - yeah

Could not recognise the faces standing over me

They were all dressed in uniforms of brutality

 

How many rivers do we have to cross

Before we can talk to the boss

All that we got seems lost

We must have really paid the cost

 

(That's why we gonna be)

Burnin' and a-lootin' tonight

(Say we gonna burn and loot)

Burnin' and a-lootin' tonight

(One more thing)

Burnin all pollution tonight

(Oh yeah, yeah)

Burning all illusions tonight

 

Oh stop them

 

Give me the food and let me grow

Let the roots man take a blow

All them drugs gonna make you slow now

It's not the music of the ghetto

 

Weeping and a-wailing tonight

(Ooh can't stop the tears)

Weepin' and a-wailin' tonight

(We've been suffering all these long, long years)

Weeping and a-wailing tonight

 

Give me the food and let me grow

Let the roots man take a blow

All them drugs gonna make you slow now

It's not the music of the ghetto

 

We gonna be burnin' and a-lootin' tonight

(To survive, yeah)

Burnin' and a-lootin' tonight

(Save your babies lives)

Burning all pollution tonight

Burning all illusions tonight

 

Burnin and lootin tonight

Burnin and lootin tonight

Until the philosophy which hold one race

Superior and another inferior

Is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned

Everywhere is war, me say war

 

That until there are no longer first class

And second class citizens of any nation

Until the colour of a man's skin

Is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes

Me say war

 

That until the basic human rights are equally

Guaranteed to all, without regard to race

Dis a war

 

That until that day

The dream of lasting peace, world citizenship

Rule of international morality

Will remain in but a fleeting illusion

To be pursued, but never attained

Now everywhere is war, war

 

And until the ignoble and unhappy regimes

That hold our brothers in Angola, in Mozambique,

South Africa sub-human bondage

Have been toppled, utterly destroyed

Well, everywehre is war, me say war

 

War in the east, war in the west

War up north, war down south

War, war, rumours of war

 

And until that day, the African continent

Will not know peace, we Africans will fight

 

We find it necessary and we know we shall win

As we are confident in the victory

 

Of good over evil, good over evil, good over evil

Good over evil, good over evil, good over evil

aye, some song, it's the song on the opening credits of the french film 'La Haine' with all the Paris riots footage, a well recommended film by the way, good soundtrack too

i have all my dads old Bob Marley vinyl, and never bothered much with it, but hearing that song got me into it, still my favourite Marley song
