BOB MARLEY

BOB MARLEY - Burnin' And Lootin' (Remix)

rate me

(feat. The Roots)

[Bob Marley]

Jah! Rastafari

[Black Thought]

Black Thought from the legendary Foundations

Sendin' this one out to the people, knah I mean?

My peoples in the streets of Illadel

The streets of New York City, know what I'm sayin'?

The streets of Jamaica to the ghettos of London

Word up, peoples in the struggle in ???, Cuba, South Africa

Word up, worldwide, Roots crew

And yo, open your minds to this one, feel it

Feel this joint, for real

Uh yo yo yo

[Bob Marley]

This morning I woke up in a curfew

O God, I was a prisoner too, yeah!

Could not recognize the faces standing over me

They were all dressed in uniforms of brutality, ay!

How many rivers do we have to cross

Before we can talk to the boss? ay!

All that we got, it seems we have lost

We must have really paid the cost

[Hook: Bob Marley]

That's why we gonna be burnin' and a-lootin' tonight

I said we're gonna burn and a-loot

Burnin' and a-lootin' tonight

One more thing

Burnin' all pollution tonight

Oh yeah, yeah

Burnin' all illusion tonight

Oh stop them, stop them, stop them

[Bob Marley]

Give me the food and let me grow

Let the Roots Man take a blow, ay!

I said all them, all them drugs gon' make you slow

It's not the music of the ghetto

[Hook: Bob Marley]

We gonna be burnin' and a-lootin' tonight

(Said we're gonna burn and a-loot)

Burnin' and a-lootin' tonight

One more thing

[Black Thought]

Yo y'all know the time

I'm tryin' to eat in '99, I need more

Some takin' this to the streets right, they want war

The sheriff at the front door, he comin' to hunt y'all

You got these devils at the back door that wanna confront y'all

They want y'all to pass like some type of gun law

They come in the night, then block out every border you can run for

Me, I'ma rocket launcher, a militant monster

I'm self sponsor, light up the mic just like ganja

Black Thought in the flesh, no impostor power hilly

Thorough bred soldiers ain't with the same silly shit that's uncertain Rap

inside a steel curtain

His net workin' or shoulders, backs, and necks hurtin', for real

So be supreme or just remain a mere person

Yo you can find knowledge of self or keep searchin'

Whoever in the crevices, thirsty, workin'

Beneath the surface y'all know the purpose

Keep the streets burnin' yo

[Hook: Bob Marley]

Burnin' and a-lootin' tonight

I said we're gonna burn and a-loot now

Burnin' and a-lootin' tonight

One more thing

Burnin' all pollution tonight

Oh yeah, yeah

Burnin' all illusion tonight

Oh stop them
