Big Sugar – Red Rover lyrics

(G. Johnson/L. T. Benn)

(Brothers and sisters, are you ready?)

Sometimes I stop and I wonder
How to keep myself from getting plowed under
'Cause everywhere I look I see people who suffer
For the things in life they can't get enough of

Me, I got lightnin' run through my wire
I'm gonna walk and never get tired
'Cause this a game of red rover
Where they send the righteous on over

As the struggle gets hotter and hotter
You're gonna feel your head slip below the water
If you think you need to get a little higher
Just be careful 'cause you walk through the fire

This is the game red rover
Send the righteous on over
This is the game red rover

Brothers and sisters, are you ready?
(Hey red rover, red rover)
Brothers and sisters, are you ready?
(Send the righteous on over)

Brothers and sisters, are you ready?
(Hey red rover, red rover)
Brothers and sisters, are you ready?
(Send the righteous on over)
