Paul Robeson Lyrics

from Album (Album Unknown) by World/Inferno Friendship Society
Joy beats oppression,

but oppression will make you pay,

cause our joy is fleeting

oppression never goes away.

you look them right in the eye,

you stare and shout them down,

but joy, our joy,

don't really care for fighting

while oppression will wait around for you to blink.

joy beats oppression,

but oppression will make you pay.

speak up, black out, black listed, full bodied, red—



he gave us everything he could

but he got tired man,

we all get tired when we ain't thinking so good

when he got tired this country

it took back every damn thing

that it god damn could.

bullies will always take back what they can,

from the free, from the poor lucky drunks

who just don't give a damn

this country will always take back everything it can.

speak up, black out, black listed, full bodied, red—



he wasn't in it for hisself,

he was in it for you and for me

but he fought it alone

and that makes you bitter and mean,

for a while this could be so good,

for tonight we make the rules

here inside this club.

me and the girls are here to tell you,

they're *** with you

'cause they want what you have

things are really pretty damn funny

things ain't really quite so bad.

take this one thing with you to home

and to work and to school to mom and to dad

there are moments when you can stop the world

remember that friends and don' t be sad.

take this one thing with you to home

and to work and to school to mom and to dad

don't hang a man out to dry again,

don't make him fight it all alone again.

speak up, black out, black listed, full bodied, red.
