Political revolution

Ah sey what we need is a political revolution. yeah
Cause we tired a the greed from corrupted politicians
Ah sey what we need is a political revolution, yeah
So let’s plant some seeds of justice and liberation

Tell me how it is that the minority
Have all the wealth an a starve the majority
Well to me that’s a foolish policy
Nah serve no good purpose to humanity
Too much people a sink ina poverty
Pulled down by unemployment’s gravity
Tonight ah won’t be sleeping happily
Cause tomorrow injustice might be after me

Ah sey what we need is a political revolution, yeah
Cause we tired a the greed from corrupted politicians
Ah sey what we need is a political revolution, yeah
So let’s plant some seeds of justice and liberation

So it’s time for a brand new levity
Time fi we reshape the society
Time fi we spread love and share
Free education and free health care
Done wid police brutality
Shut down the prison economy
Send the innocent home to them family
Gi we equal work for equal salary

Belafonte and Killer Mike
Say they who’s  gonna shine that light
Spike Lee and Cornel West
Say Bernie Sanders is the best, yes
Spike Lee and Cornel West
Say Bernie Sanders is the best, yes

Ah sey what we need is a political revolution, yeah
Cause we tired a the greed from corrupted politicians
Ah sey what we need is a political revolution, yeah
So let’s plant some seeds of justice and liberation

The whole world is in need of change
No more bull no more games
So please stop acting strange
after we put x beside your name
Keep talking of your big plans
But they never yet reach my hands
I’m fed up of all these scams
No help when we get caught in jams

Ah won’t follow if you can’t lead
Won’t vote if I can’t read
So you better educate us please
Homeless, I’m hungry so give me what I need

Ah sey what we need is a political revolution, yeah
Cause we tired a the greed from corrupted politicians
Ah sey what we need is a political revolution, yeah
So let’s plant some seeds of justice and liberation

Belafonte and Killer Mike
Say they know who’s gonna shine that light
Spike Lee and Cornel West
Say Bernie Sanders is the best, yes
Belafonte and Killer Mike
Say they know who’s gonna shine that light
Spike Lee and Cornel West
Say Bernie Sanders is the best, yes

Ah say what we need
(MLK speaks)
Ah say what we need

Elad in the building
Jamaicans supporting, Bernie Sanders
Say Elad in the building
Jamaicans supporting, Bernie Sanders, lift the standards

Ah sey what we need is a political revolution, yeah
Cause we tired a the greed from corrupted politicians
Ah sey what we need is a political revolution, yeah
So let’s plant some seeds of justice and liberation

All over the world people crying out for peace
People crying out for love
People crying out for help
What is my life if it is for I alone
It’s time for caring, it’s time for sharing,
It’s time for a total change in the way we think,
And in the way we act
And in the way we treat each other
We need revolution,
economic revolution, spiritual revolution, political revolution, yeah
political revolution, yeah
