400 Years

Lyrics: Peter Tosh

400 years
And it’s the same – Same philosophy
I said it’s four hundred long years
And black people just begin to see.
What do they fight against – the youth, the youth of today?
And without these youths, they would be gone –
All gone astray

Come on, come on
We gonna make a move
Now that the time has come
And if the fools don’t see
I know the youths of today
They gonna be strong.
But come on with me – there is land
There is a land of liberty
Where we can live – live us a good, good life
And we gotta be free.
You know we got to be free

Just look how long: 400 years
And it’s the same old time colonial imperialistic philosophy
I said its 400 long gone years
And my people just begin to see
But when will you come with me
You say you’re black and you’re proud
So you got to be free – You gotta be free
Don’t sit down on your pride, there’s no time for you to hide
Jah is by your side – he’s right by your side

Look how long – 400 years
And it’s the same old time Columbus philosophy
I said it’s 400 long gone years
And my people just begin to see

Look how long – it’s 400 years
And it’s the same old time Columbus philosphy
I said it’s 400 long gone years
And the black people still close their eyes

Look how long…
