Times Like These Lyrics – Queen Ifrica

Explosion_Music_Video

One civilization is not complete without it’s art
The highest form of expression of human intelligence
You have have become complacent
Sitting down and allowing the other nations to run away with everything
You have become a bunch of consumers
You are creators
Rise up mighty people, accomplish what you will
Without confidence you’re twice defeated in the race of life




They took away the voices, that gave the people pride
Now we’re plunging into darkness
We all have to play our part, make a bold start
Every disc jock, tell every artist
Media houses, we notice you love support de slackness
How so much alcohol inna we parties
While de girls ah bruk out
And de sumpn she drink knock her out
Now she no care whey dem prop her up

It’s times like these
I’m missing our heroes
Times like these
I really wish they were around
Shouldn’t have to be like this
Marcus Garvey
We know say you try you best,
But we haffi go do to the rest

Dem breed up de shotta dem, now we have alotta dem
Prison pack up, now de grave dem ah go pack ah dem
Dem bruk de national bird wing
Sell we out clean,
Me no tink we own ah god dyam ting
Jamrock why we giving in
To de trick way dem ah trick we from de beginning
Parents you need fe wake up from you slumbering
Is we children blood dem is running

It’s times like these
I’m missing our heroes
Times like these
I really wish they were around
Shouldn’t have to be like this
Bob Marley
We know you never die in vain
We gonna rise again, hey




People use the fist hold the bell
Beat promise til it swells
Nobody nah go hear if you no yell
Listen whey dem tell you bout de bucket whey go well
Black woman put on you baggie
Dat sumpn no fe sell
Ah so we get fe know say society cruel
Go ask dem ah who put de crab inna barrel
PM, opposition unno done wi de quarrel
Unite, come together, teach de people how fe chill

It’s times like these
I’m missing our heroes
Times like these
I really wish they were around
Shouldn’t have to be like this
Oh Miss Lou we need you
Ah de first me heard of this
Hundreds and counting pan de murder list

They took away the voices, that gave the people pride
Now we’re plunging into darkness
We all have to play our part, make a bold start
Every disc jock, tell every artist
Media houses, we notice you love support de slackness
How so much alcohol inna we parties
While de girls a bruk out
Ah de sumpn she drink knock her out
Now she no care whey dem prop her up

It’s times like these
I’m missing our heroes
Times like these
I really wish they were around
We need you, we need you, we need you
Sam Sharpe
We need you, we need you, we need you
Nanny, yeah

It’s times like these
I’m missing our heroes
Times like these
I really wish they were around
Shouldn’t have to be like this
Marcus Garvey
