Joseph Hill - Too Long in Slavery lyrics

Too long the people's hidden in the darkness (Oh milord!) Now is the time, now is the time That we all should see the light Civilisation begins here Now, it's been too long Too long, too long in slavery Free us god Now, it's been too long Too long, too long in slavery But we were brought here To do a very necessary job (job job job) Now that the work is over, we want to know when we will be returned That's what we ask They stole us, away from africa Could not let you buy Not at our will But stole us away on these three ships Do you want to hear what's their names? But they are races, Jesus Races, Jesus, of god This is my way of loving, and that is the destruction of poor black people Too much of that Now, it's been too long Too long, too long in slavery Black man get up, stand up blackfoot Now, it's been too long Too long, too long in the slavery Why, milord? (3x) My mother suffer, my father suffer My brother die in penitentiary, under solitary confinement Why milord? (oh lord oh lord) All the international morality is at stake Why milord? Now that the work is over, we want to know when we will be the returned Couldn't believe you see, they stole us away on these three ships Now, it's been too long Too long, too long in slavery Free the people and let them move in liberty Now, it's been too long Too long, too long in slavery So the struggle continue.. But while the struggle continue, I'm going to tell you We rastaman will set the world free
