The Vision of Rassan: Dedication / Roll On Kirk

This song is by Eric Burdon & War and appears on the album Eric Burdon Declares "War" (1970).

a) Decication

This is my, my dedication
A song to a father, from one to another
One to another, a brother to a brother
Cast your mind back (ooh ooh ooh) to black Africa (ooh ooh ooh)
Little wooden ships (ooh ooh ooh) crossing the ocean (ooh ooh ooh)
Little wooden ships (ooh ooh ooh)
Landing on the shoreline (ooh ooh ooh)
The name of the place Lord (ooh ooh ooh)
Is New-Orleans (ooh ooh ooh)
Remember Jelly Roll Morton (ooh ooh ooh)
Later Charlie Bird Parker (ooh ooh ooh)
Travel to the north, yes (ooh ooh ooh)
With Charlie Bird Parker (ooh ooh ooh)
People goin' insane, yes (ooh ooh ooh)
With John Coltrane, Lord (ooh ooh ooh)
But can you dig on his name now? (ooh ooh ooh)
I say it's Roll on Kirk, now (ooh ooh ooh)

b) Roll on kirk

Make them work, make them work, make them work
Roll on Kirk yeah
Make them work, make them work, make them work
Roll on Kirk on, check it one more time
Make them work, make them work, make them work
Roll, oh, Roll on Kirk on, mmm mmm
Make them work, make them work, make them work
Roll on Kirk on, yeah

Watch him move, every movement speaks now
Seems his tender fingers is strangled in your cheeks now
He does a little dance, and he stomps on his feet now
Yeah he moan and moan and blows, the bellows in his cheeks now
Come on, baby

Make them work, make them work, make them work, Roll on Kirk
Go baby
Make them work, make them work, make them work Roll on Kirk on

Come aboard the ship, it is a beautiful trip, Lord
You're welcome aboard, yes, especially if you're hip, child
Watch him closely while he makes up to the world now
He makes a woman aware of man, ooh, a man of a goal, now, oh

This is my, my dedication
A song to a father, from one to another
One to another, a brother to a brother
Cast your mind back (ooh ooh ooh) to black Africa (ooh ooh ooh)
Little wooden ships (ooh ooh ooh) crossing the ocean (ooh ooh ooh)
Little wooden ships (ooh ooh ooh)
