Angela, they put you in prison,
Angela, they shot down your man.
Angela, youre one of the millions
Of political prisoners in the world.

Sister, theres a wind that never dies,
Sister, were breathing together.
Sister, our love and hopes forever,
Keep on moving, oh, so slowly round the world.

They gave you sunshine,
They gave you sea,
They gave you evrything but the jailhouse key.

They gave you coffee,
They gave you tea,
They gave you evrything but equality.

Angela, can you hear the world is turning,
Angela, the world watches you.
Angela, you soon will be returning
To your sisters and your brothers of the world.

Sister, youre still a people teacher,
Sister, your word reaches far.
Sister, theres a million diffrent races,
But we all share the same future in the world.

They gave you sunshine,
They gave you sea,
They gave you evrything but the jailhouse key.

Yeh, they gave you coffee,
They gave you tea,
They gave you evrything but equality.

Hey, angela, they put you in prison,
Angela, they shot down your man.
Angela, youre one of the millions
Of political prisoners in the world.
