Ub40 - Burden of Shame

rate me

There are murders that we must account for

Bloody deeds have been done in my name

Criminal acts we must pay for

And our children will shoulder the blame

(chorus)

I`m a british subjectnot proud of it

While I carry the burden of shame (repeat)

As a nation we`re following blindly

No-one stops to question why

Our money`s supporting an army

And a boy in soweto dies

(chorus)

I`m a british subjectnot proud of it

While I carry the burden of shame (repeat)

Must we go on ignoring forever

The cries of an african son

There`s a soldier`s hand on the trigger

But it`s we who are pointing the gun

(chorus)

I`m a british subjectnot proud of it

While I carry the burden of shame (repeat)
