Talking 'Bout a Revolution
by Tracy Chapman



Don't you know talkin' bout a revolution
Sounds like a whisper

Don't you know talkin' about a revolution
Sounds like a whisper

While they're standing in the welfare lines
Crying at the doorsteps of those armies of salvation
Wasting time in the unemployment lines
Sitting around waiting for a promotion

Don't you know talkin' about a revolution
Sounds like a whisper

Poor people gonna rise up
And get their share

Poor people gonna rise up
And take what's theirs

Don't you know better run run run run run run run run
All I said you'd better run run run run run run run run

Cause finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin' about a revolution
Cause finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin' about a revolution holding on
Talkin' about a revolution holding on

While they're standing in the welfare lines
Crying at the doorsteps of those armies of salvation
Wasting time in the unemployment lines
Sitting around waiting for a promotion

Don't you know talkin' about a revolution
Sounds like a whisper

And finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin' about a revolution
Yes finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin' about a revolution holding on
Talkin' about a revolution holding on
Talkin' about a revolution holding on
