URBAN TIMES MEDLEY

Johnny Kemp

Letra de la canción

A) inner city blues (make me wanna holler)
Rockets, moon shots
i wanna spend it on the have-nots
money, we make it
before we see it you take it
Oh, make you wanna holler
the way they do my life
make me wanna holler
the way they do my life
this ain't livin', no, no, no, no, no
no, no, baby, this ain't livin'
no, no, no, no, no
Inflation no chance
to increase our finance
bills pile up sky high
it'll send that poor boy off to die
Oh, make me wanna holler
and throw up both my hands
yea, it makes me wanna holler
and throw up both my hands
Somebody say na-na-na-na-na-na
(na, na-na-na, na-na)
say na-na-na-na-na-na-na
(na-na-na-na-na-na-na)
It's gettin' so tough on the street
that i can't stand outside my door
without someone standin' in front of me
ask before i die, i'm gettin' somethin' to eat
Hang ups, let downs
bad breaks, set backs
i said the natural fact is
honey, i can't even pay my taxes
Oh, make you wanna holler
the way they do my life
make me wanna holler
the way they do my life
no, no, no, no, no baby
this can't be livin', livin' over me
I said, crime increasing, increasing
we got trigger happy policing
panic, panic is spreading
but god knows where, god knows
Oh, make me wanna holler
and throw up both my hands
yea, it makes me wanna holler
and throw up both my hands
Somebody say na-na-na-na-na-na
(na, na-na-na, na-na)
say na-na-na-na-na-na-na
(na-na-na-na-na-na-na)
Politicians, crooked preachers
gettin' rich off the lies they teach us
brothers unemployed and homeless state
for those who got and they'll kill for more
baby can't you see what's goin' on?
we'd been lied to or far too long
together we can right the wrongs
before our time here is all gone
Yeah, somebody say na-na-na-na-na-na
(na, na-na-na, na-na)
say na-na-na-na-na-na-na
(na-na-na-na-na-na-na)
everybody say na-na-na-na-na-na
(na, na-na-na, na-na)
say na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na
(na-na-na-na-na) hit it!

b) mercy mercy me (the ecology)
I said just a little, a little bit of mercy
give it just a little mercy, a little mercy
give it just a little, a little bit of mercy
give it just a little mercy mercy mercy
Woah, aw, mercy, mercy me
oh, things ain`t what they used to be, no no
where did all the blue skies go
poison is the wind that blows
from the north and south and east
Woah, mercy, mercy me
oh, things ain`t what they used to be
oil wasted on the oceans and across our seas
fish full of mercury
Oh, mercy, mercy me
oh, things ain`t what they used to be
radiation underground and in the sky
animals and birds who live nearby are dying
Oh, mercy, mercy me
oh, things ain`t what they used to be
what about this over crowded land
how much more abuse from man can she stand
Give it just a little...give it just a little...
give it just a little mercy...
give it just a little...
give it just a little...(hello darling)
give it just a little mercy...(my sweet love...)
give it just a little mercy...
People we all got to get together
cos together we have strength and power
can't find no work, can't find no job my friend
money is tighter than it's ever been
the man i just don't understand what's goin' on
closest friend, oh what's goin' on
what's gotten in my life? what's happenin'?
what's happenin', brother? oh
whats happenin'? what's happenin', brother?
