Handsworth Revolution
Steel Pulse Lyrics


I say the people of Handsworth
Knows that one hand wash the other so they say
So let's join hands, my bredren
Make the way for our children (our children, our children)
And their children (their children, their children)
Ensuring that they get life's fair share of
Equality
Doesn't justice stand for all?
Doesn't justice stand for all?
Doesn't justice stand for all mankind?
We find society putting us down
Crowning us, crowning us, crowning us, crowning us
A place of evil, oh, oh
Handsworth means us the Black people
Handsworth means us the Black people
We're talking now
Speaking Jah Jah language

Long, long way we're coming from
To send this message across, across
Been hidden, forbidden, concealed, unrevealed
It's got to come out in the open that

Babylon is falling
Babylon is falling

It was foolish to build it on the sand
Handsworth shall stand firm like Jah rock
Fighting back
We once beggars are now choosers
No intention to be losers
Striving forward with ambition
And if it takes ammunition
We rebel in Handsworth revolution
Handsworth revolution
Handsworth, yeah, yeah, revolution
Handsworth revolution
Revolution

Dread town, dread town, dread town
Dread town, dread town, dread town

Dread we are for a cause
Deprived of many things
Experienced phony laws
Hatred Babylon brings
We know what you've got to offer
We know what's going on
Don't want no favors
'Cause there's still hunger
Innocent convicted
Poor wage, hard labor
Only Babylon prospers
And the humble suffer
They are my brothers, yeah, in South Africa
One Black represent all, all over the world
Can't bear it no longer
Blessed with the power
Of Jah Creator
We will get stronger
And we will conquer
And forward ever, and backward never
Handsworth revolution
Handsworth revolution
Handsworth, yeah, yeah, yeah, revolution
Handsworth, yeah, yeah, yeah, revolution

Revo-, revo-, revolution
Revo-, revo-, revolution
Revo-, revo-, revolution
Revo-, revo-, revolution

Remember buying this back in 78, still sounds magnificent, has lost none of its power. Handsworth is now everywhere. Rise up!
