Don't you know
They're talkin' bout a revolution (It sounds like a whisper)
Don't you know
They're talkin' about a revolution (It sounds like a whisper)

While they're standing in the welfare lines
Crying at the doorsteps of those armies of salvation
Wasting time in the unemployment lines
Sitting around wait for a promotion

Don't you know
They're talkin' bout a revolution (It sounds like a whisper)
Poor people gonna rise up (Talkin' about a revolution)
And get their share
Poor people gonna rise up
And take what's theirs
So you better run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run
Oh I said you better run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run

Finally the tables are starting to turn (Talkin' about a revolution)
Talkin' bout a revolution
Finally the tables are starting to turn (Talkin' about a revolution)
Talkin' bout a revolution (Oh)
Talkin' bout a revolution (Oh)

While they're standing in the welfare lines
Crying at the doorsteps of those armies of salvation
Wasting time in the unemployment lines
Sitting around wait for a promotion

Don't you know
They're talkin' bout a revolution (It sounds like a whisper)
Finally the tables are starting to turn (Talkin' about a revolution)
Talkin' bout a revolution
Finally the tables are starting to turn (Talkin' about a revolution)

Talkin' bout a revolution (Oh)
Talkin' bout a revolution (Oh)
Talkin' bout a revolution (Oh)
Talkin' bout a revolution (Oh)
Talkin' bout a revolution (Oh)
