They Don't Know
The Impressions Lyrics


Another friend has gone
And I feel so insecure
Brother if you feel this way
You're not by yourself

We have lost another leader
Lord how much must we endure
If you feel this way
You're not by yourself

Funny they think
We have no-one to lead us
That then we've lost the fight
And in the night no-one can breed us

But they don't know
Every brother is leader
And they don't know every sister is a breeder

And our love you see
Is gonna help the world be free
We're gonna move at a steady pace
Keep every brother on the case

They don't know
To have buses to help themselves
We cannot let our people be
Until we're all out of poverty

And never think, we have no-one to lead us
Don't think we've lost the fight
And in the night no-one can breed us

For they don't know
Every brother is leader,
And they don't know every sister is a breeder

They don't know, they don't know
They don't know, they don't know
They don't know, they don't know
They don't know, they don't know

We've got love you see
And make note of the information
Don't matter about the operation
We shall control the situation

They don't know
To have buses to help themselves
We cannot let our people be
Until we're all out of poverty

And never think, we have no-one to lead us
Don't think we've lost the fight
And in the night no-one can breed us

But they don't know
Every brother is leader,
And they don't know every sister is a breeder

And our love you see
Is gonna help the world be free
We're gonna move at a steady pace
Keep every brother on the case

They don't know
They don't know
They don't know
They don't know, oh child
They don't know
They don't know, have mercy now
They don't know, they don't know

One of the finest and most important soul albums ever (along with Young Mods Forgotten Story). The genius of Curtis was getting his political message across without obvious anger but just telling people how it was it a beautiful and subtle way. There are only two political tracks in this, the first and the last track, between them.... perfect soul music but you know from those book-ending songs, the cover and album title what this is about. Every track is fantastic but two stand out as they imho are among the best soul tracks put to wax, Stay Close To Me and the wonderful (I have my LP on now next to me and it;s playing and it is why I love soul music)......So Unusual. Oh man My Woman's Love has just come on.....haha forgotten just how great this LP is. Thanks for posting it
