Reggae Rocksteady Black Consciousnesssssss !!!

The Heptones
Our forefathers worked the fields in burning sun, they sweat and strained
But we are sad to say, we won't do it again
Because now that we've realized that oh so long we've been hypnotized
We suffered day and night, but since then we're bright

Yes, my skin is black
So when you see me come, you can turn your back
You ain't gonna be
No you'll never be a man like me

Yes, my skin is black
So when you see me come, you can turn your back
You ain't gonna be
No you'll never be a man like me

If ever they made a slip, they'd be corrected by the whip
But we are glad to say it won't happen again
'Cause now it is our turn to take the lead because we have learned
We suffered day and night, but since then we're bright

Yes, my skin is black
So when you see me come, you can turn your back
You ain't gonna be
No you'll never be a man like me

Yes, my skin is black
So when you see me come, you can turn your back
You ain't gonna be
No you'll never be a man like me
