Abyssinians – Black Man's Strain lyrics

Why, why, why, oh yeah now,
Must the black man strain?
Why people, must he sweat and strain?

He toil each day
From dawn 'til dusk (yes a true)
Tryin' to achieve (yes a true)
The little he can (we know a true)
But just can't make it (a really true)
I wonder what's wrong (we know a true)
What's wrong now? (a really true)
Tell me, what's wrong...

Why, why must the black man strain?
I really wanna know people, now
Must he sweat and strain?

He toil each day
From dawn 'til dusk (yes a true)
Tryin' to achieve (yes a true)
The little he can (we know a true)
But just can't make it (a really true)
I wonder what's wrong (we know a true)
What's wrong now? (a really true)
Tell me, what's wrong...

Why, why must the black man strain?
I really wanna know people, now
Must he sweat and strain?

Tell me, tell me
Must the black man strain?
I really wanna know people, now
Must he sweat and strain?
