Lucky Dube – Well Fed Slave / Hungry Free Man lyrics

Look in the eyes of the homeless man
Tell me what you see?
In the eyes of a jobless man
Tell me what you see?

What about the eyes of a prisoner
What do you see?
Now you've seen it all
It is time to make up your mind

Don't try to hide it 'cause I can see it all
In your face, yeah
It the same questions that I ask myself every time
To be or not to be

Do you wanna be a well fed slave or a hungry free man?
Do you wanna be a well fed slave or a hungry free man?
Do you wanna be a well fed slave or a hungry free man?

What is the point in being free
When you can't get no job
What is the point in being free
When you can't get food

What is the point in going out to work
When others can get for free
What is the point in being free
When you don't have no home

Now you've heard it all
It is time to make up your own mind
To be or not to be
Oh ho ho ho

Do you wanna be a well fed slave or a hungry free man?
Do you wanna be a well fed slave or a hungry free man?
Do you wanna be a well fed slave or a hungry free man?
...
