Review The Song (0)



mi revalueshanary fren is nat di same agen
yu know fram wen ?

fram di masses shata silence
staat fi grumble
fram pawty paramoncy tek a tumble
fram Hungary to Poelan to Romania
fram di cozy cyassle dem staat fi crumble
wen wi buck-up wananada in a reaznin
mi fren always en up pan di same ting
dis is di sang im love fi sing :

Kaydar
e ad to go
Zhivkov
e ad to go
Husack
e ad to go
Honnicka
e ad to go
Cauchescu
e ad to go
jus like apartied
wi av to go

awhile agoh mi fren an mi woz taakin
soh mi seh to im :

wat a way di eart a run nowadays, man
it gettin aada by di day
fi know whey yu stan
cauz wen yu tink yu deh pun salid dry lan
wen yu cteck a stack yu fine yu ina quick-san
yu noh notice ow di lanscape a shiff
is like valcanoe unda it an notn cyaan stap it
cauz tings jusa bubble an a bwoil doun below
strata seperate an refole
an wen yu tink yu reach di mountain tap
is a bran-new platow yu goh buck-up

mi revalueshanary fren shake im ed an im sigh

an it poze di Stalinist dem plenty prablem

but wi haffi face up to di cole facks;
im also open up pondora's bax
yes, people pawa jus a showa every awa
an eyrybady claim dem demacratic
but some a wolf an some a sheep
an dat is prablematic:
