INNER CITY BLUES (MAKE ME WANNA HOLLER)



Rockets, moon shots
Spend it on the have-nots
Money, we make it
‘Fore we see it, you take it
Oh, make you wanna holler
The way they do my life
Make me wanna holler
The way they do my life
This ain’t livin’, this ain’t livin’
No, no, baby, this ain’t livin’


Inflation, no chance
To increase finance
Bills pile up sky high
Send that boy off to die
Make me wanna holler
The way they do my life
Make me wanna holler
The way they do my life
Dah, dah, dah
Dah, dah, dah


Hang ups, let downs
Bad breaks, set backs
Natural fact is
I can’t pay my taxes
Oh, make me wanna holler
And throw up both my hands
Yea, it make me wanna holler
And throw up both my hands
Crime is increasing
Trigger happy policing
Panic is spreading
God knows where we are heading
Oh, make me wanna holler
They don’t understand
Dah, dah,dah
Dah, dah, dah


Mother, mother
Everybody thinks we’re wrong
Who are they to judge us
Simply ’cause our hair is long
