Rise & Shine
Bunny Wailer Lyrics


This is the cry of a people
Who were robbed and raped from their homeland
And their loved ones.
A people stripped of their culture,
Their dignity, their liberty and their rigths
And by the cruel and presumptuos
Hands of the colonial and imperialistics slavers
Were cargoed into the west,
Where for over 400 years they have toiled and laboured,
And with their blood, their sweat, them tears and hands
They have built the great city of Babylon,
Only to be paid with the wages of the taskmaster's
Whip,
Torture and death.

Oh yea yea! This is my history!
Oh yea yea yes! Oh!

We've been down in the valley much too long.
We've been down in captivity oh so long.
We've been down in humillity much too long.
We've been down in slavery oh so long.

But we're gonna rise and shine!
And win our liberation,
For now is the time
When all nations must be free.
So rise and shine!
Restore your strength and power,
Waste no more time,
Remember your history.

We've been down in a sufferation much too long.
We've been down in a condemnation oh so long.
We've been down in a segregation much too long.
We've been down in humilliation oh so long.

But we're gonna rise!
As the morning sun that surrounds you,
It's international morality time,
Where mankind must be born anew.
So rise and shine!
For the sake of the younger generations,
Putting hearts and minds,
To brotherhood and unity.

Oh yea yea yea yea yes!
Remember the slavemaster's ship!
Remember the taskmaster's whip!
Oh yea!

We've been down in the valley much too long.
We've been down in captivity oh so long.
We've been down in slavery much too long.
We've been down in humillity oh so long.

But we're gonna rise and shine!
And win our liberation,
For now is the time
When all nations must be free.
Rise and shine!
Restore your strength and power,
Waste no more time,
Remember your history.

Yes we're gonna rise and shine!

Lyrics/ Bunny Wailer - Rise and Shine

We've been down in the valley much too long
We've been down ina poverty, oh so long, yeah
We've been down in captivity much too long
We've been down in humility, oh so long
So rise and shine
And win your liberation
For now is the time when all nations must be free
So rise and shine
Restore your strength and power
Waste no more time, remember your history

We've been down ina sufferation much too long
We've been down in humiliation, oh so long, yeah
We've been down ina condemnation much too long
We've been down in segregation , oh so long
So rise and shine
As the morning sun that surrounds you
It's international morality time
Where mankind must be born anew
So rise and shine
For the sake of the younger generation
Putting our hearts and minds
To brotherhood and unity

We've been down in the valley much too long
We've been down ina poverty , oh so long
We've been down in captivity much too long
We've been down in humility, oh so long
We've been down ina sufferation much too long
We've been down ina tribulation , oh so long
We've been down ina condemnation much too long
We've been down ina segregation , oh so long
We've been down in the valley much too long
We've been down ina poverty , oh so long
We've been down in captivity much too long
We've been down in humility, oh so long
So rise and shine
And win your liberation

Letra;
Nós estivemos no vale por muito tempo
Nós estivemos na pobreza, oh, tanto tempo, sim
Nós estivemos em cativeiro por muito tempo
Nós estivemos em humildade, oh, tanto tempo
Então levante-se e brilhe
E ganhe sua libertação
Por agora é a hora em que todas as nações devem ser livres
Então levante-se e brilhe
Restaure sua força e poder
Não perca mais tempo, lembre-se de sua história

Nós estivemos em sofrimento por muito tempo
Nós estivemos em humilhação, oh, tanto tempo, sim
Nós estivemos em uma condenação por muito tempo
Nós estivemos na segregação, oh, tanto tempo
Então levante-se e brilhe
Como o sol da manhã que te cerca
É hora da moralidade internacional
Onde a humanidade deve nascer de novo
Então levante-se e brilhe
Para o bem da geração mais jovem
Colocando nossos corações e mentes
Para a fraternidade e unidade

Nós estivemos no vale por muito tempo
Nós estivemos na pobreza, oh, tanto tempo
Nós estivemos em cativeiro por muito tempo
Nós estivemos em humildade, oh, tanto tempo
Nós estivemos em sofrimento por muito tempo
Nós estivemos em uma tribulação, oh, tanto tempo
Nós estivemos em uma condenação por muito tempo
Nós estivemos em uma segregação, oh, tanto tempo
Nós estivemos no vale por muito tempo
Nós estivemos na pobreza, oh, tanto tempo
Nós estivemos em cativeiro por muito tempo
Nós estivemos em humildade, oh, tanto tempo
Então levante-se e brilhe
E ganhe sua libertação
