Not Gonna Give It Up - Live; 2002 Remastered Version - Lyrics

i'm not gonna give it up
i'm not goin'
i'm not gonna give it up
i'm not goin'
i will be fighting
i've got to be fighting
i will be fighting
til africa
and africans are free
i said that i been up there
and i've seen poverty beyond compare
i know slave drivers just don't care
they just don't care
africa's the richest place
but it has the poorest race
and to me it's just a disgrace
just a disgrace
africans don't wait too long
we gotta fight 'cause it's not wrong
won't you join in and sing this song
sing this song
to be poor it's a hurtful pain
livin inna poverty it's a burning shame
help yourself 'cause man you're not lame
you are not lame

Writer(s): Peter Tosh
