Staples, Mavis - Fight Lyrics




Out on the streets of Mary Sally old road
Can't get me out unless you use a shoe horn
Eve of destruction, but you still talking free trade
You give me lemons and I'll make lemonade

So I pray, though I'm tired
Well this can't wait, so we fight

They say you earn a penny, each one you save
Easy to save it when you don't need a dang thing
Talking 'bout Jesus but you treat people dead wrong
Looking for answers but you singing the same song
Your economics well they sure need a change
You know damn well them CEO need no raise
Freedom and justice well they ain't your play thing
Prop up your puppets and you kill the real kings

So I pray, though I'm tired
Well this can't wait, so we fight

Fight, the fight
Fight, the fight
Fight, the fight

I hear my mama calling all the way home
I'm in no hurry go on push it right on
Yeah, I'm a soldier but I don't use a gun
Out on the road best know my daddy kept one
They say you earn a penny, each one you save
Won't mean nothing when you're down in the grave
You know the ends don't really justify means
Prop up your puppets and defy the real queen

So I pray, though I'm tired
Well this can't wait, so we fight
So I pray, though I'm tired
Well this can't wait, so we fight

We fight, fight, fight
We fight, fight, fight
We fight, fight, fight
