Nina Simone - Revolution
(Irvine; N. Simone)
RCA 49589

And now we got a revolution
Cause I see the face of things to come
Yeah, your Constitution
Well, my friend, it's gonna have to bend
Im here to tell you about destruction
Of all the evil that will have to end

Some folks are gonna get the notion
I know they'll say I'm preaching hate
But if I have to swim the ocean
Well I would just to communicate
It's not as simple as talkin jive
The daily struggle just to stay alive

Singing about a revolution
Because we're talking about a change
It's more than just evolution
Well you know you got to clean your brain
The only way that we can stand in fact
Is when you get your foot off our back
