PAR02002
If a revolution comes to my country
Let me remember now
I mean if bloody conflict rages
I better learn right now
How to catch and skin and cook a rat
How to boil a soup from weeds
And especially learn how to share
Oh, hear the thunder…‎

If a revolution comes to my country
Let me remember now
I mean if civil war breaks down everything
I better learn right now
How to sleep ten in one room
How to keep dry outside when it rains
And especially learn how to share
Oh, hear the thunder…‎

If a revolution comes to my country
Let me remember now
There’ll be sickness, epidemic
I better learn right now
How long to boil water safe to drink
How to recognize gangrene
And especially learn how to share
Oh, hear the thunder…‎

If a revolution comes to my country
Let me remember now
Old dollar bill, you won’t mean much
I better learn right now
What in life has true value
And, oh, if we’d only learn to share
There’d be no more need for revolution
Oh, hear the thunder…‎

If a revolution comes to my country
Let me remember now.‎
