Burden Of Shame

UB40
Language: English



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

I`m a British subject, not proud of it
While I carry the burden of shame
I`m a British subject, not proud of it
While I carry the burden of shame

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

I`m a British subject, not proud of it
While I carry the burden of shame
I`m a British subject, not proud of it
While I carry the burden of shame

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

I`m a British subject, not proud of it
While I carry the burden of shame
I`m a British subject, not proud of it
While I carry the burden of shame
