Revolution Lyrics – Bob Marley

Revolution Lyrics

Revelation reveals the truth – revelation.
(revolution revolution revolution – oooo-doo-doo-doo-doo)
(revolution – oooo-doo-doo-doo-doo)

It takes a revolution (revolution) to make a solution;
Too much confusion (aaa-aaah) so much frustration eh!
I don’t wanna live in the park (live in the park);
Can’t trust no shadows after dark (shadows after dark) yeah-eh!
So my friend I wish that you could see
Like a bird in the tree the prisoners must be free yeah! (free)

Never make a politician (aaa-aaah) grant you a favour;
They will always want (aaa-aaah) to control you forever eh!
(forever forever)
So if a fire make it burn (make it burn make it burn)
And if a blood make ya run (make ya run run run)
Rasta de ‘pon top (aaa-aaah) can’t you see? (doo-doo-doo-doo)
So you can’t predict the flop. Eh-eh! (doo-doo-doo-doo)

We got lightning (lightning) thunder (thunder)
Brimstone (brimstone) and fire – fire (fire fire);
Lightning (lightning) thunder (thunder)
Brr-brimstone (brimstone) and fire – fiyah – fire – fiyah!
(fire fire)

Kill cramp and paralyze all weak at conception;
(aaa-aaah doo-doo-doo-doo)
Wipe them out of creation (creation) yeah-eah! (creation)
Wa-Jah Jah Jah! Wa-Jah Jah Jah! (creation)
Wa-Jah Jah Jah! (creation)

Oh! Let i’es is i’es (i’es) in i’es is black (i’es)
In i’es is red (i’es) in i’es is dread.

Let righteousness cover the earth
Like the water (aaa-aaah) cover the sea yeah! Yeah!

Lightning (lightning) doo-doo-doo (thunder)
Doo-doo-doo (brimstone) doo-doo-doo (fire fire);
A lightning (lightning) thunder (thunder)
Brimstone (brimstone) and fire.
