TALKIN’ BOUT A REVOLUTION by Tracy Chapman.

Don’t you know
They’re talking, about a revolution
It sounds like a whisper

Don’t you know
They’re talking, about a revolution
It sounds like a whisper

While they’re standing in the welfare lines
Crying at the doorsteps of those armies of salvation
Wasting time in the unemployment lines
Sitting around waiting for a promotion

Poor people gonna rise up
And get their share
Poor people gonna rise up
And take what’s theirs

Don’t you know
You better run, run, run…
Oh I said you better
Run, run, run…

Finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin’ bout a revolution…..
