War Lyrics

What life has taught me
I would like to share with
Those who want to learn...

Until the philosophy which hold one race
Superior and another inferior
Is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned
Everywhere is war, me say war

That until there are no longer first class
And second class citizens of any nation
Until the colour of a man's skin
Is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes
Me say war

That until the basic human rights are equally
Guaranteed to all, without regard to race
Dis a war

That until that day
The dream of lasting peace, world citizenship
Rule of international morality
Will remain in but a fleeting illusion
To be persued, but never attained
Now everywhere is war, war

And until the ignoble and unhappy regimes
that hold our brothers in Angola, in Mozambique,
South Africa sub-human bondage
Have been toppled, utterly destroyed
Well, everywhere is war, me say war

War in the east, war in the west
War up north, war down south
War, war, rumours of war

And until that day, the African continent
Will not know peace, we Africans will fight
We find it necessary and we know we shall win
As we are confident in the victory

Of good over evil, good over evil, good over evil
Good over evil, good over evil, good over evil

Sorry Stoney, this song is not a speech by Marcus Garvey, It is a speech by His Majesty of Ethiopia Haile Selasie

I remember when Sinead O'Connor did the song a capella on Saturday Night Live and then held up the picture of Pope John Paul II and tore it up. It was a very shocking moment in TV history.

Gerry is right. The song is made from that ethiopian emperor's speech.Bob found them almost perfect to express his own toughts and made a beautiful song.

This song most certainly does have a name. It's name is WAR, by Bob Marley, and it is the single greatest song ever written. Trust me. I'm a doctor.

These are'nt his lyrics. it is him reading one of heile sellasie's speeches. The music to it though accompanies it perfectly. You can kind of tell that he is trying to fit words in when u listen 2 it!
