“Brothers Gonna Work It Out” by Public Enemy

“United we stand, yes divided we fall. Together we can stand tall.”

Uh, your bad self
Help me break this down from off the shelf
Here’s a music servin’ you so use it
Papa’s got a brand new funk
Get down (party for your right)
Huh, let’s get it on
Like we said before
They say the brothers causin’ trouble
Hate to bust their bubble
‘Cause we rumble
From our lower level
To condition your condition
(We’re gonna do a song)
That you never heard before
Make you all jump along to the education
Brothers gonna work it out
And stop chasin’
Brothers

So many of us in limbo
How to get it on, it’s quite simple
3 stones from the sun
We need a piece of this rock
Our goal indestructible soul
Answers to this quizzin’
To the Brothers in the street
Schools and the prisons

History shouldn’t be a mystery. Our stories real history- not his story.

We gonna work it one day
Till we all get paid
The right way in full, no bull
Talkin’, no walkin’, drivin’, arrivin’ in style
Soon you’ll see what I’m talkin’ ’bout
‘Cause one day
The brothers gonna work it out
Brothers,

Let’s get it on… we are willin’
Let’s get it on, let’s get it on … we are willin’
Let’s get it on, let’s get it on, let’s get it on … we are willin’

Now we are ready if you are ready

In 1995, you’ll twist to this
As you raise your fist to the music
United we stand, yes divided we fall
Together we can stand tall
Brothers that try to work it out
They get mad, revolt, revise, realize
They’re super bad
Small chance a smart brother’s
Gonna be a victim of his own circumstance
Sabotaged, Shellshocked, rocked and ruled
Day in the life of a fool
Like I said before to live it low
Life take you time, time yo go slow

Look here, not a thing to fear
Brother to brother not another as sincere
Teach a man how to be father
To never tell a woman he can’t bother
You can’t say you don’t know
What I’m talkin’ ’bout
But one day … brothers gonna work it out

Let’s get it on… we are willin’
Let’s get it on, let’s get it on … we are willin’
Let’s get it on, let’s get it on, let’s get it on … we are willin’
Now we are ready if you are ready
