Oldie But Goodie: They Don’t Care About Us by the #American King of Pop, #MichaelJackson #NoCriticsJustArtists

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation, aggravation
Everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody dog food
Bang bang, shot dead
Everybody’s gone mad

All I want to say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I want to say is that
They don’t really care about us

Beat me, hate me
You can never break me
Will me, thrill me
You can never kill me
Sue me, Sue me
Everybody do me
Kick me, kick me
Don’t you black or white me

All I want to say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I want to say is that
They don’t really care about us

Tell me what has become of my life
I have a wife and two children who love me
I am the victim of police brutality, now
I’m tired of bein’ the victim of hate
You’re rapin’ me of my pride oh, for God’s sake
I look to heaven to fulfill its prophecy
Set me free

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Trepidation, speculation
Everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody dog food
Black man, black mail
Throw your brother in jail

All I want to say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I want to say is that
They don’t really care about us

Tell me what has become of my rights
Am I invisible because you ignore me?
Your proclamation promised me free liberty, now
I’m tired of bein’ the victim of shame
They’re throwing me in a class with a bad name
I can’t believe this is the land from which I came
You know I do really hate to say it
The government don’t want to see
But if Roosevelt was livin’
He wouldn’t let this be, no, no

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation, speculation
Everybody litigation
Beat me, bash me
You can never trash me
Hit me, kick me
You can never get me

All I want to say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I want to say is that
They don’t really care about us

Some things in life they just don’t want to see
But if Martin Luther was livin’
He wouldn’t let this be, no, no

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation, segregation
Everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody dog food
Kick me, kick me
Don’t you wrong or right me

All I want to say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I want to say is that
They don’t really care about us

Semi Oldie But Goodie: ‘Soldier Of Love’ by Sade #NoCriticsJustArtists

I’ve lost the use of my heart
But I’m still alive
Still looking for the life
The endless pool on the other side
It’s a wild wild west
I’m doing my best
I’m at the borderline of my faith,
I’m at the hinterland of my devotion
In the front line of this battle of mine
But I’m still alive
I’m a soldier of love.
Every day and night
I’m a soldier of love
All the days of my life
I’ve been torn up inside (oh!)
I’ve been left behind (oh!)
So I ride
I have the will to survive
In the wild wild west,
Trying my hardest
Doing my best
To stay alive
I am love’s soldier!
I wait for the sound
(oh oh)
I know that love will come (that love will come)
Turn it all around
I’m a soldier of love (soldier of love)
Every day and night
I’m a soldier of love
All the days of my life
I have lost but I don’t doubt
So I ride, I have the will to survive
In the wild wild west,
Trying my hardest
Doing my best
To stay alive
I am love’s soldier!
I wait for the sound
I know that love will come
I know that love will come
Turn it all around
I’m a soldier of love
I’m a soldier
