Talking About A Revolution lyrics



Talkin’ ‘Bout A Revolution – Tracy Chapman!

Don’t you know,
they’re talkin’ bout a revolution,
it sounds, like a whisper.

Don’t you know,
they’re talkin’ about a revolution,
it sounds, like a whisper.

While they’re standing in the welfare lines,
crying at the doorsteps of those armies of salvation.
Wasting time in the unemployment lines,
sitting around, waiting for a promotion.

Don’t you know,
they’re talkin’ bout a revolution,
it sounds, like a whisper.

Poor people gonna rise up,
and get their share.
Poor people gonna rise up,
and take what’s theirs.

Don’t you know you better run, run, run…
Oh, I said you better run, run, run…

‘Cause finally the tables are starting to turn,
talkin’ bout a revolution.

Yes finally the tables are starting to turn.
Talkin’ bout a revolution.
Oh, Lord, talkin’ bout a revolution.

Oh, I’ve been standing in the welfare lines,
crying at the doorsteps of those armies of salvation.
Wasting time in the unemployment lines,
sittin’ around, waiting for a promotion.

Don’t you know,
they’re talkin’ bout a revolution,
and it sounds, like a whisper.

And finally, the tables are starting to turn,
talkin’ bout a revolution.

Yes finally the tables are starting to turn,
talkin’ bout a revolution, oh, Lord.
Talkin’ bout a revolution, oh, Lord.
Talkin’ bout a revolution, oh, Lord.
