SINS OF THE FATHERS

UB40

Letra de la canción

Once upon a time and not so long ago
When things were much more simple and time would travel slow
There came a righteous stranger with a bible in his hand
To educate the sinners and liberate the land

The sins of the fathers are visited from old
In a never-ending circle of people bought and sold
So the wretched of the earth will huddle from the cold
As the ship of fools goes sailing on an ocean black as gold

So come and sit beside me and let my tale unfold
Of a land of milk and honey where the truth must not be told
As men of rhyme and reason let the devil take their soul
For greed and fame and fortune and a river black as gold

The sins of the fathers are visited from old
In a never-ending circle of people bought and sold
So the wretched of the earth will huddle from the cold
As the ship of fools goes sailing on an ocean black as gold

And all the non-believers were hiding from the light
As a thousand burning crosses were scattered in the night
The thieves and the vagabonds were sinking in their sand
As the righteous lord and master stretches out a helping hand

The sins of the fathers are visited from old
In a never-ending circle of people bought and sold
So the wretched of the earth will huddle from the cold
As the ship of fools goes sailing on an ocean black as gold

And those who had to suffer, the sick, the young, the old
Were sacrificed to fortune and left out in the cold
So with this new arrangement, the leaders sold their souls
For bangles, beads and baubles and a river black as gold

The sins of the fathers are visited from old
In a never-ending circle of people bought and sold
So the wretched of the earth will huddle from the cold
And the ship of fools goes sailing on an ocean black as gold

The sins of the fathers are visited from old
In a never-ending circle of people bought and sold
So the wretched of the earth will huddle from the cold
As the ship of fools goes sailing on an ocean black as gold
