Mavis Staples - Action Lyrics




[Intro]
Oh
Who's gonna do it if I don't?

[Verse 1]
Sick and tired of feeling sick and tired
(This ain't heaven help us)
They say my words might get me fired
(This ain't heaven help us)
What a terrifying time to raise our voices
(This ain't heaven help us)
But see I'm not left with minimal choices
(This ain't heaven help us)

[Chorus]
I gotta put it into
Action (action)
Action (action)
Doing it A to Z
Until I set myself free
Action (action)
Action (action)
I don't care if you refuse to see
I gotta put it into
Action (action)
Action (action)
Consider this a sign of an emergency
Action (action)
Action (action)
Who's gonna do it if I don't do it?

So my brains are filled with fear
(This ain't heaven help us)
So I feel the heat as night come near
(This ain't heaven help us)
Oh ACT-ION
(This ain't heaven help us)
Please don't stop it, you really my friend
(This ain't heaven help us)

[Chorus]
I gotta put it into
Action (action)
Action (action)
Doing it A to Z
Until I feel so free
(Action)
(Action)
I don't care if you refuse to see
I gotta put it into
Action (action)
Action (action)
Consider this a sign of an emergency
(Action)
(Action)
Who's gonna do it if I don't do it?

[Verse 3]
I'm tired of being scared (tired of being scared)
I'm so tired of being scared (tired of being scared)
Scared for my children, I'm scared for our children
I'm tired of being scared for the mothers and fathers and brothers and sisters
ACT-ING
Gotta share the truth that's inside of me
This is an emergency
Of the highest and the fullest and the final degree
I'm still trying to be free
Don't let this separate you and me
Oh please
Who's gonna do it if I don't do it?

[Chorus 2]
Action (action)
Action (action)
Doing it A to Z
Until I feel so free
(Action)
Action (Action)
I don't care if you refuse to see
I gotta put it into
Action (action)
Consider this a sign of an emergency
(Action)
Action (Action)
Who's gonna do it if I don't?
