​We Don't Mind

This song is by Michael Franti & Spearhead and appears on the album Live At The Baobab (2000) and on the album Stay Human (2001).

We don't mind
See we've been doin' it all the time
But if you want us to you sacrifice
You will not get it without a price
We don't mind
See we've been doin' it all the time
But if you want us to you sacrifice
You gotta give something back to life

You think I'm vulnerable to your pressure tactics
Because I shed a tear, 'cause I shed a tear
You think I'm vulnerable to your violence
Just 'cause I'm sittin' here
But my babies came into this world
Without a single fear, say they has no fear
'Cause the seven generations before me
They all fought to get us here

You can't just come in here like that no more
And snatch up our childhood
You just can't walk on up
And replace it yo, with your Hollywood
But I see now
How all of the words I say you'll take and misconstrue
And I'm prepared now
To suffer the penalties for speakin' the truth
And I speak the truth when I say

People if you hear me now I wantcha to say
Naa, na-naa, na-naa, nah
People if you hear me now I wantcha to say
Naa, na-naa, na-naa, nah


Michael Franti And Spearhead Lyrics
