Burning Spear - Statue of Liberty lyrics

In the early fifties and sixties and Seventies American strechted forth her hands And welcome us all Yes we built and now they refuse us Yes we can clean it and now they refuse us Yes they mark us, they su su su Yes we been there with good intention Yes we been there with a working Intention Yes we been there with a educational Intention Yes we been there So many different nationalities been There too Never been treated like we do Never been handled like we do Never been talked about like we do We have a no intention to bomb threat No intention to hijacking No intention to hostage holding Chorus: Statue of Liberty light up your torch So we can see If it is a international problem We want to see It it is a political problem We want to see If it is a island problem We want to see If it is a continental problem We want to see Chorus If I am right than I should be right If I am wrong no argument Remember people the statue stand For equal rights and justice Chorus We were picking apples many years ago Picking grapes many years ago Hospital workers many years ago Housekeepers many years ago Chorus It's not like we begging or demanding Anything It's not like we begging or demanding Anything It's just an example It's just an example Chorus Chorus In the forties and the fifties no one Was fair In the sixties people start to share In the seventies we were there In the nineties immigration get scared
