jimmy cliff – true story 歌詞


“true story”

we gave you history,
but what about the true story
hidiing your heritage
to keep you into bondage
they stole your culutre
to say you got no future
destroyed your tradition
to keep you into subjection
and thats the true story
they took the natural living
and gave you articificail living
they took the solcial living
and turned it into socilisim
they took the communl living
and turned in into communisum
they took the capital living
and turned it into capitialism
and thats the true story
my ancestors were kings of old
half the stories have not been told
they were mighty men and women
my children will be like them
we are the seed of abraham
descneded from adam
we are the true born israleites
the true born ishmaelites
and thats the true story
don’t you lie
don’t want your hizzim shcism
your just for the system
don’t want your fo lucifer
you call it your philosiphy
don’t want your lies buried
you call it your library
we want the true story
