Talking ’bout a Revolution – Tracy Chapman

Posted: October 24, 2011 in Uncategorized

Don’t you know, they’re talkin’ ’bout a revolution
It sounds like a whisper
Don’t you know, they’re talkin’ ’bout 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’ ’bout 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, run
Oh, I said you better, run, run, run, run, run, run, run
Run, run, run, run, run

‘Cus finally the tables are starting to turn, talkin’ ’bout a revolution
‘Cus finally the tables are starting to turn, talkin’ ’bout a revolution, oh no
Talkin’ ’bout 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, they’re talkin’ ’bout a revolution
It sounds like a whisper

And finally the tables are starting to turn, talkin’ ’bout a revolution
Yes, finally the tables are starting to turn, talkin’ ’bout a revolution, oh no
Talkin’ bout a revolution, oh no, talkin’ bout a revolution, oh no
