Takin’ It To The Streets

You don’t know me but I’m your brother;
I was raised here in this living hell.
You don’t know my kind in your world.
Fairly soon the time will tell.


You – telling me the things you’re gonna do for me.
I ain’t blind and I don’t like what I think I see.


Takin’ it to the streets
Takin’ it to the streets
Takin’ it to the streets
Takin’ it to the streets

Take this message to my brother;
You will find him everywhere.
Wherever people live together
Tied in poverty’s despair.


You – telling me the things you’re gonna do for me.
I ain’t blind and I don’t like what I think I see.

Takin’ it to the streets
Takin’ it to the streets
Takin’ it to the streets
Takin’ it to the streets
