Testo della canzone As Long As the People Got Something to Say (Public Enemy), tratta dall'album New Whirl Odor

As Long As the People Got Something to Say - Public Enemy

It's P.E.
Public Enemy, number one

As long as people got something to say
As long as people got something to say
As long as people got something to say
As long as people got something to say
As long as people got something to say
As long as people got something to say

Now, we don't control shit
No education, enforcement, economics
Depending on governments
Now, we forever in a plantation state
Damn, you know what? That's why I hate hate
Ya'll wanna do something for the people
To make us equal
Instead of creatures
Who got human features
Let the whole world reach you
Things classrooms can't teach you
Now can you dig it?
Sing the song 'till we all get along

Feed the poor
Damn the law
When they trained 'em, taught 'em
Killed 'em when they caught 'em
Set up wet up
When they couldn't afford 'em
Put disease across the seas
Got the third world on their knees
Get it

As long as the people got something to say
As long as the people got something to say
As long as the people got something to say
As long as the people got something to say
As long as the people got something to say

At this critical junction the administration can't function
Taking our civil liberties over high price luncheons
It's nothin' when you're considered a sheeple
As long as the people got something to say
We the people

They need a war to justify the taking of lives
They manage the lie behind the lie behind the lie
Now you can't run and hide it's high tech genocide
They never taught you the truth or how to survive
They clone doctors to put a spin on it
Hip hop heads to shook to pull the cover off it

It may effect there sales tip the scale
The way it looks they'll end up dead or in jail
We busy spinning and grinning on 26's you sitting
Change your god for your wealth thinking heaven your gettin'
We must be persistant in mass resistance
Love thy enemy and make this committment
To engage in struggle, with a clench fist lift it
Be true to self before the GOD end this
Yo! Public enemy, we back in your
I don't know, but your own President is playin' it

As long as the people got something to say
As long as the people got something to say
As long as the people got something to say
As long as the people got something to say
As long as the people got something to say
As long as the people got something to say
As long as the people got something to say
As long as the people got something to say
As long as the people got something to say

Hip hop
Definition
Turn table
One mic and a mixer
C'mon, c'mon

As long as the people got something to say
As long as the people got something to say
As long as the people got something to say
