From the recording POURIN' LIKE RAIN

Lyrics

GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT

WE WANT FREEDOM JUSTICE AND EQUALITY
WE WANT THE BEST OF LIFE AND ALL IT BRINGS

NOW I DONE BEEN ALL OVER THE WORLD
AND EVERYBODY FEELS THE SAME
IT’S A UNANIMOUS DECISION
I SAID WE’RE READY FOR A CHANGE

YEAH YEAH YEAH

DON’T YOU KNOW YOU
GOT TO GIVE THE PEOPLE
GIVE IT UP
GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT

CAUSE ITS ABOUT TIME FOR THINGS TO GET BETTER
WE WANT THE TRUTH THE TRUTH AND NO MORE LIES
WE WANT FREEDOM JUSTICE AND EQUALITY
WANT IT FOR YOU AND I WANT FOR ME

YOU YOU YOU
YOU GOT TO GIVE THE PEOPLE
GIVE IT UP
GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT
DON’T YOU KNOW YOU
GOT TO GIVE THE PEOPLE
GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT

THE PEOPLE WANT BETTER EDUCATION NOW
RIGHT NOW

THE PEOPLE WANT BETTER FOOD TO EAT
THE PEOPLE WANT
BETTER HOUSING
PEOPLE NEED MONEY MONEY
PEOPLE NEED EQUALITY
PEOPLE NEED UNDERSTANDING
PEOPLE NEED FREEDOM
PEOPLE NEED HEALTHCARE
YOU BETTER GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT
GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT
GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT

LIVIN IN THE SEQUEL
AND STILL NOT EQUAL
END UP SPENDING ALL YOU GOT WITH NOTHING TO SPARE
SOCIAL SERVICES CHILD SUPPORT AND WELFARE
FOLKS NEED A TAX BREAK OUT HERE
AND MOST FOLKS NEED HEALTHCARE
MODERN DAY SLAVERY
MENTALLY DRAINING ECONOMICALLY

WE WILL WIN
THERES HOPE IN THEIR EYES
CAUSE THEY REALIZE

YOU BETTER
GOT TO GIVE THE PEOPLE

GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT
GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT
GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT
GIVE EM WHAT THEY WANT 3X
