PostSubject: BONES FOR THE POOR   Sat Oct 06, 2018 12:23 pm

We can’t get the money – Allah!
Because there’s no money – Allah!
And if there’s money – Allah!
Is not our money – Allah!


Bones for poor, flesh for rich
Take your water, I'm not a fish
Don't forget this in your speech
I'm still a poor man.

They say we have many parks, 
They say we have many trees, 
They say we have many mines, 
I'm still a poor man.

Children are sitting on stones, 
Neither chair nor desk in schools, 
And you promise better life, 
I'm still a poor man.

In the North is Afro top, 
In the East Erythraean Sea, 
Inland we have many lakes, 
I'm still a poor man.

Graduates don't have a job, 
In the office all your friends, 
And you want my vote again, 
I'm still a poor man.

Marijuana is what you see, 
But CORRUPTION down your feet, 
In the school they're selling names, 
I'm still a poor man.
