Democracy Don't Work

Jimmy Cliff


Pursuit of happiness is everyone's right
Cause all are equal in ter father sight
But when it comes to indigenous peoples rights
Why is the system always giving us fight

Because they got no lovein their hearts
Democracy was not built upon love from the start
Masses of people don't have enough to eat
Democracy is built up only for the elite

Democracy don't work, democracy don't work
Oh, oh, oh
Democracy don't work, democracy don't work
Oh, oh, oh
Democracy don't work

Under the law they say justice is for all
But for same people it don't exist at all
Because if you got money then justice you can buy but
If you ain't got any then you know you might die

They say in God we trust but to man they plea
Whose God is it that allow this to be
As long as there is partiality
How is there going to be equality

Democracy don't work, democracy don't work
Oh, oh, oh
Democracy don't work, democracy don't work
Oh, oh, oh
Democracy don't work

Pursuit of life and liberty is your right
Don't allow anyone to steel your birth right
Because everyone has got their own identity
Democracy is a rod that leads to tyranny

As long as their is racism
Classism and communism skisim
As long as their is inhumane government
There's no peace withinand truth has become a sin

Democracy don't work, democracy don't work
Oh, oh, oh
Democracy don't work, democracy don't work
Oh, oh, oh
Democracy don't work
