Uncle George
Steel Pulse Lyrics


George Jackson, George

The day I heard George Jackson died

Blood was in my eye

Come mek we trample down the system

Was my battle cry
He was advised in pleading guilty

For the little monkey dollars he stole

And bared the scars of their injustice

The truth was never told ? no way 'cause

They framed him yes they framed him

Backraw back up George

Accused of killing a prison guard

Can't tame him no can't tame him

So dem lock up George

Can't change him no can't change him

Fighting for a cause now



George Jackson George Jackson

George Jackson George Jackson

Malicious Unjust society

He became revolutionary George

George Jackson



Seven year confinement putting up resistance

Because he was demanding his rights

Down there in the dungeon

Granting him no pardon

His parole was out of sight, yeah

They frame him yes they frame him

No three cheers for Uncle George

Torture and darkness was all he saw

Baton clap, truncheon make no applause

Rebelling for a cause now



George Jackson George Jackson

George Jackson George Jackson

Malicious Unjust society

He became revolutionary George

George Jackson

Jackson & Jackson & Jackson

I want you all to know

They never let him go

Want you all to know

They never let him go now, alright yeah heh!

This one’s in memory of Uncle George
We Bredrens aware, we sympathize
Now rest in peace

George, George, George
George Jackson, George Jackson Soledad brother, George
George Jackson Soledad brother, George
George Jackson, George Jackson Soledad brother

Malicious unjust society
He became revolutionary
George Jackson Soledad brother
George Jackson Soledad brother
(They framed him yes they framed him)

Yo three cheers for Uncle George
Baton clap but Lord Truncheon make no applause
Weathered face of distortion behind iron bars
Sights of darkness and torture and condemned fate that he saw

They framed him yes they framed him
Backrah back up George (?)
Right now in the morgue he’s rebelling for a cause

Eleven years he’s beared the scars of injustice
Deeper scars remain of solitary confinement
No you can’t trust, no
He only stole seventy dollars
He was advised to plead guilty
Oh he got not one year, but life
For demanding his rights

George! George Jackson Soledad brother
George Jackson Soledad
George Jackson Soledad PRISONER

Malicious unjust society
He became revolutionary
George Jackson Soledad brother
——Instrumental (@2:28-02:44)——-

Prevented prohibited from pardon and parole
Just a foolish youth
From Backrah man he stole
Now he lies there rotting in a morbid morgue
The Fuzz claimed he suffered a disease call
Rebelling for a cause
Rebelling for a cause
Rebelling for a cause
Rebelling for a cause

Oh Lord, dem got George
Dem shot George
Help George!
—-Instrumental (@3:14-03:36)---

George!
Can’t trust the fuzz
Can’t trust the fuzz
Can’t trust the fuzz
Can’t trust the fuzz brother!

Malicious unjust society
He he became revolutionary
George, George Jackson soledad brother
Confinement, confinement, confinement
Confinement (hey)

George Jackson Soledad brother
George Jackson Soledad brother
George Jackson Soledad brother

No no three cheers for Uncle George
Baton clap but Lord Truncheon make no applause
No no no three cheers for Uncle George
Baton clap but Lord Truncheon make no applause

maxime kone

Ce-ci est en mémoire de l'oncle George
Nous les frères conscients, nous réalisons ce que vous représentiez
George, George
George Jackson Soledad brothers
Société injuste et malveillante
Il devint révolutionnaire
George Jackson Soledad brothers
Le Baton tonna, la matraque n'applaudit pas
Face altérée, distordue derrière des barres de fer
Vues de ténèbres, de torture et condamnation
Fut Le destin qu'il connu
Ils le peignirent oui ils le décrièrent
Les Békés pourchassèrent George
En ce moment à la morgue
Il se rebelle pour une cause
Onze ans, il a porté les cicatrices de l'injustice Yeh
Des cicatrices plus profondes restent l'isolement au cachot
Non, vous ne pouvez faire confiance à la police
Il vola seulement soixante-dix dollars
On lui conseilla de plaider coupable
Il n'eut pas un an mais perpète
Pour avoir revendiqué ses droits,
George George Jackson Soledad brothers
George Jackson Soledad prisoner
Société injuste et malveillante
Il devint révolutionnaire,
George Jackson
Soledad brothers
Empêché, interdit de grâce et libération conditionnelle
Fut Juste un jeune imbécile, pour l’homme blanc qu'il déroba
Il est maintenant en train de pourrir dans une morgue morbide
La police l’a déclaré victime d'une maladie
Se rebellant pour une cause (4)
O Seigneur, ils ont eu George
Ils abattirent George
Aidez George
George Jackson Soledad brothers
Société injuste et malveillante
Il est devenu révolutionnaire,
George Jackson
Soledad brothers
Isolement, Isolement
George Jackson Soledad brothers

Pas même trois applaudissements Pour George
Le Bâton tonna la matraque n'applaudit pas
No, no, no
