Doc Jazz – Song For Marwa lyrics

What can you do
When a neighbor's disrespecting you
Calling you names
Without any shame
And harassing you

What can you do
When society turns its back on you
You done nothing wrong
Were just getting along
But there's no accepting you

How can it be wrong to defend your family
Who can expect you to ignore a felony
So down at the courtroom where justice should be served
How can this heinous crime be what that girl deserved?

Whatever they say, it wasn't just a tragedy
But a disaster bound to happen with the hate they breed
But we won't forget how brave you stood in dignity
Forever a symbol of our fight against the bigotry
We will remember you
Always remember you
Lady rest in peace in eternity

What can we say
When they fan the flames of hate on us
Treating us wrong
For so long
Is it not too late for us

What can we say
When the force of law ain't safe for us
Shooting her man
Trying to prevent
A crime so murderous
