Any Bob Marley fans?

Recommended Posts

This week would have been Bob Marley's 74th birthday. I've spent the last couple of days listening to his various albums and it's amazing how in today's political environment, the lyrics are still relevant. Everyone likes the catchy One Love, but some snippets of his more political songs.

 

Revolution

It takes a revolution (revolution) to make a solution
(Doo-doo-doo-doo)
Too much confusion (aaa-aaah), so much frustration, eh!
I don't want to live in the park (live in the park)
Can't trust no shadows after dark (shadows after dark), yeah-eh!
So, my friend, I wish that you could see
Like a bird in the tree, the prisoners must be free, yeah! (Free)

Never make a politician grant you a favor
(Doo-doo-doo-doo)
They will always want to control you forever, eh!
(Forever, forever)

They don't want to see us unite
All they want us to do is keep on fussing and fighting
They don't want to see us live together
All they want us to do is keep on killing one another

 

War

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 no longer
First class and second class citizens of any nation
Until the color of a man's skin
Is of no more significance than the color of his eyes
Me say war
