BLACK MAN’S RIGHTS

No Fixed Address
                
I am a Black, Black Man and I need to be recognised in this wretched world
for we are getting brainwashed and the people forgetting about our rights
so all you Black People you got to fight for your rights
You got to - fight for your rights

There’s a lot of things that are trying to stop you,
and this is racism, and the cops, and the Government which is buggered
but we have learnt within our soul, within our soul,
and that is the land controls you - you don’t control it
you don’t control it
Fight for your rights
Fight for your rights

I am, a Black, Black Man and I need to be recognised in this wretched world
for we are getting brainwashed and the people forgetting about our rights
so, all you Black People, You got to fight for your rights
You got to fight for your rights
You got to fight for your rights
You got to fight for your rights
