Revolution (part 1)

Nina Simone
Language: English

And now we got a revolution
'Cause i see the face of things to come
Yeah, your Constitution
Well, my friend, it's gonna have to bend
I'm here to tell you about destruction
Of all the evil that will have to end.

(It will, oh yes, it will
Don't you know it's gonna be)
Alright (It will be)
Well, alright

Some folks are gonna get the notion
I know they'll say I'm preachin' hate
but if I have to swim the ocean
well i would just to communicate
it's not as simple as talkin' jive
the daily struggle just to stay alive

(Alive and well, ok
Don't you know it's gonna be)
Alright (It'll stay alive and well)

Singin' about a revolution
because we're talkin' about a change
it's more than just evolution
well you know, you got to clean your brain
the only way that we can stand in fact
is when you get your foot off our back

(Get off our back, step back
Don't you know it's gonna be)
Alright (We'll get by)
To get back
Well, alright

(What to do) What to do now
(I'm telling you) I'm telling you
(Soon you'll know) Soon you'll know
(It will be through) It will be through

(One, two, three) One, two, three
(What do you see?) What do you see now?
(Four, five, six) Four, five, six
(I've got my stick) I've got my stick
(Do your thing) Do your thing
(Whenever you can) Whenever you can, now
(When you must) When you must, now
(Do take your stand) Take your stand

Well, alright (It will end)
It will end (Well, alright)
Well, alright (Stay alive)
Stay alive (Well, alright)
Well, alright (We'll get by)
