THE TABLES WOULD TURN

The poor man standing laughing
But he knows where the shoe they pain am so
He no fit do anything today
But one day the tables would turn.

The little children on the street
Working hard so they can eat
They no fit do anything but cry
One day the tables would turn

My sister with the sexy eyes
Selling her body so she can eat
She no fit do anything but worry
One day the tables would turn

The average man doesn’t ask for too much
He only wants what you and I want
A safe place to lay his head at night
Is that too much to ask
He wants his kids to go to good schools
So they can become somebody
He wants them to grow up healthy and strong
Is that too much to ask
So when you build your mansions
Drive around in your fancy cars
Remember to think of the little man
‘cos one day the tables would turn

Our people keep on struggling
And meditate on the words of the wise
A lie may stand for a thousand years
But one day the truth will reign

Our mothers put away your worries
Wipe away your flowing tears
We no fit do anything today
But one day the tables would turn

Little children listen up
We may be down but we’re not out
We must not give up on our dreams
One day your time will come, O yeah

So my brothers and sisters don’t you see
We must bring some sanity over here
How can one person have so much
While so many have none
