Verse written and rapped by Tajhmahal Robinson


We was field workin'
Knees in dirt
Dirt on hands
Needs in dirt
These black problems
They don't understand
Plant a black life and we grow the land
If we dying then we holdin' hands
Stand tall
Brick buildings and water dams
We humans are great
We just fuck ourselves
What you accomplish
That God ain't conjure?
Money is evil
I be off the juana
And don't apart the Father
I do my work on a Sunday til' Friday
And rest on my Saturdays
My Sabbath days be twappin'
I believe if you believe and work to top it
The universe will stop and help a cause if it be proper
So work Good fruits
And ya fruits ah work Good too
And it will last forever
Because that is what Good do
And you blessed cause you could choose

Oh, I cry, I cry for the workers
Oh, we are the great adapters.
Oh, I cry, I cry for the workers
Oh, we are the great adapters.
