Israelites
Desmond Dekker Lyrics


Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sir
So that every mouth can be fed
Poor me Israelites Aah

Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sir
So that every mouth can be fed
Poor me Israelite

My wife and my kids, they packed up and leave me
Darling, she said, I was yours to be seen
Poor me Israelite

Shirt them a-tear up, trousers is gone
I don't want to end up like Bonnie and Clyde
Poor me Israelite

After a storm there must be a calm
They catch me in the farm
You sound your alarm
Poor a-poor a-poor me Israelite

I said I get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sir
So that every mouth can be fed
Poor me Israelite Aah

I said my wife and my kids, they are packed up and leave me
Darling, she said, I was yours to be seen
Poor me Israelites Aah

Look Me shirts them a-tear up, trousers are gone
I don't want to end up like Bonnie and Clyde
A-poor a-poor me Israelites Aah

After a storm there must be a calm
They catch me in the farm
You sound your alarm
Poor me Israelite
A-poor a-poor a-poor me Israelites Aah

@luke lukey in Canada the british used to tell the french "speak white" when the french.were speaking their own language. It s true that as some point we have all been slaves. Remember the asians, taken to US, same thing

Tsippy Hadass

@Zera Marks but the israelites are the jews no? They also.have been taken into slavery put into gethos slaughtered burned etc until.72 years ago the creation of the.state of Israel. So, does this song mean we are ( those who have suffer hardship.from othersl) all israelites? Im just asking no provocating.
