Mr. Isaacs

“Fui offerto in sacrificio per costruire l'inferno dell'uomo nero ed il paradiso dell'uomo bianco, ma ora che so è tempo di andare, Signore, il cammino si presenta così doloroso e lento. Ho tratto la ricchezza da ogni angolo della terra, picchiato ed incatenato, solo per aiutarli a diventare re, duchi e conti. Ma ora che so... ciò che ho dato è ciò che mi riprenderò, ho dato amore e non voglio avere odio.”
La-da-da, mmmm-hmmmm

I was given as a sacrifice
To build a black man's hell and a white man's paradise
But now that I know, it's time I've got to go, Lord
The proceeding seems so painful and so slow-slow-slow
The proceeding seems so painful and so slow

I have gathered all the wealth from all over the world
Beaten in chains and shackles
Just to help make them kings, duke and earl
But now that I know, it's time I've got to go, Lord
The proceeding seems so painful and so slow-slow-slow
The proceeding seems so painful and so slow

What I give, is what I will take
I gave love, I won't take no hate, I seh
Love-love-love, I-niversally
Love-love-love

La-da-da, mmmmmmm
Oy
Mmmmmm

Said I was given as a sacrifice
To build a black man's hell and a white man's paradise
But now that I know, it's time I've got to go, Lord
The proceeding seems so painful and so slow-slow-slow
The proceeding seems so painful and so slow

What I give, is what I will take
I gave love, I won't take no hate, I seh
Love-love-love, I-niversally
Love-love-love, I-tinually
Love-love-love
Love is what I give
And that is what I'll take
La-da-da, mmmm-hmmmm
