Perfect – 30 Pieces lyrics
I've been around for a very long time
I cut sugar cane pon dem plantation
I've wiped all my tears, yet still I'm cry
Nuttin' ever last forever but salvation

They gave I and I
30 pieces of silver
30 pieces of gold
But who is gonna pay reparation for my soul?
And I see dem gotta lotta money, inna dem billfold
But who is gonna pay reparation for my soul?

See I've got cuts and scars to show
I wanna run but I can not go
Shackles and chains are all up on me
Brother man can you tell my Mother what's happening?
That I'm gonna be the next victim, of an auction sale
Five pounds and a shilling inna bale

And they gave I and I
30 pieces of silver
30 pieces of gold
But who is gonna pay reparation for my soul?
And I see dem gotta lotta money, inna dem billfold
But who is gonna pay reparation for my soul?

They (?) took away my sisters' baby
Said they wanted him to becoma a house nigga
I tried to runaway, from the hands of slavery
but the slave master pulled his trigger

And they gave I and I
30 pieces of silver
30 pieces of gold
But who is gonna pay reparation for my soul?
And I see dem gotta lotta money, inna dem billfold
But who is gonna pay reparation for my soul?

Who is gonna pay reparation for my soul?
When there is so much segregation
Who is gonna pay reparation for my soul?
When there is so much sufferation

I ask the United Nation
What's up Kofi Annan?
