Funkadelic – By Way Of The Drum lyrics

He took the heat out of the flame, He took the heat right out of the flame.
You took the heat out of the flame
You took the heat right out of the flame.

Out of the fire burning they came walking side by side:
They were Shadrack, Meshack and Abendigo untouched by the burning fire.
They said 'He took the heat right out of the flame!
He took the heat right out of the flame!
Nobody but the Lord, the Lord God Almighty took the heat out of the flame! '

Them drums won't burn
Them drums don't burn
Them drums don't burn.
Them drums don't burn
No, they won't.
No.

Apartheid lead to genocide.
There'll be no pause for a day
But the word, had to be heard.
They could not, we wouldn't let 'em, could not claim the drums.

Them drums don't burn.
Them drums don't burn.
Them drums don't burn.
Them drums don't burn.

Deep in the jungle where the coconut grows,
Where the tiger and the lion boogie with the rhino,
There's a tribe over here, there's a tribe over there,
Drums beatin' funky rhythm they were talking everywhere.

Too all you people out there.
Men born of woman or whoever you are!
We sing this strong song right from the heart,
Letting you know that the drums won't burn.

He took the heat out of the flame.
He took the heat out of the flame.

Don't you hear what I'm sayin'?
Can't you understand what we're doin'?
