Burnin And Lootin

This morning I woke up in a curfew;
O God, I was a prisoner, too yeah!
Could not recognize the faces standing over me;
They were all dressed in uniforms of brutality. Eh!

How many rivers do we have to cross,
Before we can talk to the boss? Eh!
All that we got, it seems we have lost;
We must have really paid the cost.

(Thats why we gonna be)
Burnin and a-lootin tonight;
(Say we gonna burn and loot)
Burnin and a-lootin tonight;
(One more thing)
Burnin all pollution tonight;
(Oh, yeah, yeah)
Burnin all illusion tonight.

Oh, stop them!

Give me the food and let me grow;
Let the Roots Man take a blow.
All them drugs gonna make you slow now;
Its not the music of the ghetto. Eh!

Weepin and a-wailin tonight;
(Ooh, cant stop the tears!)
Weepin and a-wailin tonight;
(Weve been suffering these long, long-a years)
Weepin and a-wailin tonight
(Will you say cheer?)
Weepin and a-wailin tonight

Give me the food and let me grow;
Let the roots man take a blow.
All them drugs gonna make you slow;
Its not the music of the ghetto.

We gonna be burnin and a-lootin tonight;
(To survive, yeah!)
Burnin and a-lootin tonight;
(Save your babies lives)
Burning all pollution tonight;
(Pollution)
Burning all illusion tonight
(Lord-a, Lord-a, Lord-a, Lord!)

Burning and a-looting tonight;
Burning and a-looting tonight;
Burning all pollution tonight.
