Don’t you know

They’re talkin’ about a revolution

It sounds like a whisper

Don’t you know

They’re talkin’ 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

 

Don’t you know

They’re talkin’ about a revolution

It sounds like a whisper

Don’t you know

They’re talkin’ about a revolution

It sounds like a whisper

 

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, run,run,run,run,run,run,run,run

Oh I said you better run, run

Run,run,run,run,run,run,run,run,run,run

 

Yes finally the tables are starting to turn

Talkin’ about a revolution

Yes finally the tables are starting to turn

Talkin’ about a revolution oh no

Talkin’ about a revolution oh

 

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

 

Don’t you know

Talkin’ about a revolution

It sounds like a whisper

 

And finally the tables are starting to turn

Talkin’ about a revolution

Yes finally the tables are starting to turn

Talkin’ about a revolution, oh no

Talkin’ about a revolution, oh no

Talkin’ about a revolution, oh no
