Songtekst

1989 The number another summer (Get down)
Sound of the funky drummer
Music hittin' your heart 'cause I know you got sould
(Brothers and sisters, hey)

Listen if you're missin', y'all
Swingin' while I'm singin' (Hey!)
Givin' whatcha gettin'
Knowin' what I know while the Black bands sweatin'

And the rhythm rhymes rollin'
Got to give us what we want (Oh!)
Gotta give us what we need (Hey!)
Our freedom of speech is freedom or death
We got to fight the powers that be

(Lemme hear you say) Fight the power!
Fight the power
(Lemme hear you say) Fight the power!
Fight the power

(Lemme hear you say) Fight the power!
Fight the power
(Lemme hear you say) Fight the power!
We got to fight the powers that be

As the rhythm designed to bounce
What counts is that the rhymes
Designed to fill your mind
Now that you've realized the prides arrived
We got to pump the stuff to make us tough

From the heart
It's a start, a work of art
To revolutionize make a change nothin's strange

People, people we are the same
No, we're not the same 'cause we don't know the game
What we need is awareness, we can't get careless
You say what is this?

My beloved let's get down to business
Mental self defensive fitness
(Yo) Bum, rush, the show
You gotta go for what you know
Make everybody see
In order to fight the powers that be

(Lemme hear you say) Fight the power!
Fight the power
(Lemme hear you say) Fight the power!
Fight the power

(Lemme hear you say) Fight the power!
Fight the power
(Lemme hear you say) Fight the power!
We got to fight the powers that be

Fight the power
Fight the power
Fight the power
Fight the power

Fight the power
Fight the power
We got to fight the powers that be

Elvis was a hero to most
But he never meant *** to me, you see
Straight up racist that sucker was simple and plain
Mother, *** him and John Wayne!

'Cause I'm black and I'm proud
I'm ready and hyped plus I'm amped
Most of my heroes don't appear on no stamps
Sample a look back you look and find
Nothing but rednecks for 400 years if you check

(Don't worry, be happy) Was a number one jam
Damn if I say it you can slap me right here
Get it (Let's get this party started right)
Right on (Come on)

What we got to say
Power to the people no delay

To make everybody see
In order to fight the powers that be

Fight the power
Fight the power
Fight the power
Fight the power

We got to fight the powers that be
