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

(That's why we gonna be)
Burnin' and a-lootin' tonight
(Say we gonna burn and loot)
Burnin' and a-lootin' tonight
(One more thing)
Burning 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, eh
All them drugs gonna make you slow now
It's not the music of the ghetto, eh

Weepin' and a-wailin' tonight
(Who can stop the tears)
Weepin' and a-wailin' tonight
(We've been sufferin' these long, long-a years)
Weepin' and a-wailin' tonight
(Will you say cheer)
Weepin' and a-wailin' tonight
(But where)

Give me the food and let me grow
Let the roots man take a blow, eh
I say, all them, all them drugs gonna make you slow
It's not the music of the ghetto
We gonna be

Burnin' and a-lootin' tonight
(To survive, yeah)
Burnin' and a-lootin' tonight
(Save your baby lives)
Burnin' all pollution tonight
(Pollution, get out here
Burnin' all illusion tonight
(Lord-a, Lord-a, Lord-a, Lord-a, Lord)

Burnin' and a-lootin' tonight
Burnin' and a-lootin' tonight
Burnin' all pollution tonight
