Soldier Man 02:51
SOLDIER MAN VERSE 1 Long ago you fought with bows and arrows Gun powder come then you lighted up the cannons Heavy ammunition and Nuclear bombs Guided missiles don't know when they come Used to go to war on horseback riding Sharpening your sword till it sharp like lightning Didn't need to run cause the bullet won't come But the rock of the catapult burns CHORUS Hey soldier man(hey hey hey soldier) It's been a long long time Long long time (long long time) Hey soldier man(hey hey hey soldier) They say you's a dangerous man VERSE 2 But those days are over defending the castle Boarding a ship to a far away battle You wake up at dawn to the sound of the horn And you groom your horse so it can run and run Without no fear you used to be a hero But nowadays not far away from zero Dem lock you away in a mental home Tell me what you gonna do now CHORUS BRIDGE x 2 Soldier man put down your gun (soldier soldier) Wake up when the morning comes (danger danger) OUTRO What you gonna do now What you gonna do now What you gonna do now What you gonna do now

Repatriate your dollars All you thieves of the nation Why don't you bring back your dollar bills We're going to start the investigation You are under arrest for being a threat Chorus Repatriate your dollars x4 Verse No more houses in Buguma No more killings in Dawaki No more misappropriation Let's fight to end this corruption No more houses in Johannesburg No more christmas in New york No more swiss bank accounts Steal so much don't know the amount Presidential suite in Dubai Holiday home in Hawaï Private jets tearing through the sky While people at home continue to die No more false contracts and promises No more bogus speeches and philosophies As a matter of fact you didn't even go to school You managed to pass buying your way through

WHAT SHALL BE BLESSED Verse 1 People we live in a world of war times Because of differences built in our mind Killing one another for hope One's life you take away you have no right Instead of building peace we fight Where's the world gonna go Chorus x2 What shall be blessed, shall bless What shall be moved, shall move What a man can do, he shall do But let it all be good Verse 2 The secret is to love one another $Because your neighbour is your own brother He shares the same world with you So put your arms down your bombs and yoUr nuclear weapons Who destroy life and cause confusion Peace in this world we live Chorus x2 Verse 3 Your father and mother taught you to be good Took care of you and provided food In return for them what do you do You go out there you steal you see an enemy you kill So violent at will What's up with you Chorus x2
