Soundtracks – Ball Of Confusion lyrics

Ball of Confusion (That’s What The World Is Today)
Performed by Deloris & The Sisters

People moving out, people moving in
Why, because of the color of their skin
Run, run, run but you sure can't hide

An eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth
Vote for me and I'll set you free
Rap on, sisters, rap on

Well, the only person talkin' 'bout love, my brother is the preacher
And it seems nobody's interested in learning but the teacher
Segregation, determination, demonstration, integration
Aggravation, humiliation, obligation to our nation

Ball of confusion (oh, yeah, yeah)
That's what the world is today
Woo, hey, hey (let me hear it, let me hear it, let me hear it, say it)

The sale of pills are at an all time high (say it)
Young folks walking 'round with their heads in the sky (oh, say it)
The cities ablaze in the summer time
And oh, the beat goes on

Evolution, revolution, gun control, sound of soul
Shooting rockets to the moon, kids growing up too soon
Gloria (round and around and around we go)
Gloria (where the world's headed nobody knows)
Alleluia (Play Alma, go ahead girl)

Oh, great googalooga
Can't you hear me talking to you
Just a ball of confusion
Oh yeah, that's what the world is today
Oi vay

Fear in the air, tension everywhere
Unemployment rising fast, hip hop music's a gas
And the only safe place to live is on the Indian Reservation
And the band played on

Eve of destruction, tax deduction, city inspectors, bill collectors
Mod clothes in demand, population out of hand, suicide, too many bills
Yuppies moving to the hills
People all over the world shouting, " End the war!"
And the band played

Ball of confusion (that's what the world is today)
Ball of confusion (that's what the world is today)
Ball of confusion (that's what the world is today)

Great googalooga
Can't you hear us talking to you
It’s just a ball of confusion
