Lyrics

(Slavery?s Back)
By Robert L. Hall

I woke up this mornin?,
From a terrible dream.
My heart was really thumpin?
From the things I had seen.

The children had wasted minds,
?didn?t go to school ?cause there was no more golden rules,
My daddy quit his J. O. B.,
?cause snortin? cocaine was the only thing that he could see.
But if you really wonna know,
Daddy was a slave to the coke.

(Chorus)
Slavery?s back,
Be you red white black.
Slavery?s back,
She?s in the guise of crack.

I toss and turn in my bed,
Prayin? to Thee, oh Jah,
So help me clear my head.
A girl would gladly give up her body,
If you got the coke that she needs to party.
You might think that?s a damn shame,
But she thinks not because she?s doin? it for cocaine.

Another baby?s born in vain,
And when it died it was addicted to cocaine.
But if you really wonna know,
It died a slave to the coke.

(Back to chorus)

(Bridge)
Umf umf umf, ?Don?t know what this world is commin? to.
This is my anthem.

If you?re buyin? it sellin? it,
Or inhalin? it, workin? on your back,
I bet you?re doin? it for the crack.
Somebody ring the freedom bell before we all go to hell.

Don?t let the coke be the boss,
Or your soul will be lost,
i?m not just talkin? to my kin,
but I?m speakin? to all men.
Slavery?s back, slavery?s back.

(Back to chorus)


If you?re buyin? it sellin? it,
Or inhalin? it, workin? on your back,
I bet you?re doin? it for the crack.
Somebody ring the freedom bell before we all go to hell.

Don?t let the coke be the boss,
Or your soul will be lost,
i?m not just talkin? to my kin,
but I?m speakin? to all men.
Slavery?s back, slavery?s back.

She don?t care what race you are,
She don?t care if you?re a star.
Miss Cocaine has stole my brother,
?Don?t give a damn if she hurts my mother.
She?s livin? in your residence,
Maybe even in the presidents?.

(Back to chorus)

If you buyin? it,
Sellin? it,
Or inhalin? it,
Workin? on your back,
I bet you?re doin? it for the crack.
If you buyin? it,
Sellin? it,
Workin? on your back,
You?re doin? it for the crack.

(Vamp out on chorus)
