talkin’ bout a revolution lyrics – tracy chapman

“talkin’ bout a revolution”

don’t you know
they’re talkin’ bout a revolution
it sounds like a whisper
don’t you know
they’re talkin’ about 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

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…
oh i said you better run, run, run…
finally the tables are starting to turn
talkin’ bout a revolution
