UB40 Burden Of Shame Lyrics

Last updated: 08/07/2011 11:00:00 AM

There are murders that we must account for
Bloody deeds have been done in my name
Criminal acts *I* must pay for
And our children will shoulder the blame

(Chorus)

I`m a British subject, *Not* proud of it
While I carry the burden of shame (Repeat)


As a nation we`re following blindly
No-one stops to question why
Our money`s supporting an army
And a boy in Soweto dies


(Chorus)

I`m a British subject, *Not* proud of it
While I carry the burden of shame (Repeat)

Must we go on ignoring forever
The cries of an African son
There`s a soldier`s hand on the trigger
But it`s we who are pointing the gun


(Chorus)

I`m a British subject, *Not* proud of it
While I carry the burden of shame (Repeat)
