    (A push in the back)

    Im talkin to you chump
    Do yo wanna fight
    or are you gonna act like a punk

    Are you gonna take
    what they give you
    lyin down
    Are you gonna fake
    like you're livin
    and keep cheezin
    like a clown

    Well i can't take any more
    I'm gonna fight back
    can't keep treatin my people
    like whores
    makin us dance
    like we majored in tap

    Well it's my turn
    to make some rules
    It's my turn
    to master all of the tools
    tools of intelligence
    tools of education
    tools of economics
    tools of reputation
    tools of integrity
    tools of meditation

    I'm ready to fight
    for my people
    I'm ready to die
    for my people
    I'm ready to help
    my people prosper
    I'm readay to tell
    my poeple not to
    take it lyin down

    I want to follow the fighters
    Fredrick Douglas
    W. E. B. Dubois
    Malcom X
    Martin Luther King
    Thurgood Marshall
    and all whom they represent

    I look at the uncle toms
    and shake my head
    they live with the white man
    but to us they are dead
    that's ok with them because
    they if you can't beat'em join'em
    is how they live their lives
    but giving up is the only thing
    the could make me cry
    so I ask again
    Do you wanna lay down
    or
    Do you wanna fight?

    Do you wann fight?

    i'll fight
    for the cause
    of my people
    everyday

    i'll fight
    for my right
    to stand and fight
    everyday

    i'll fight
    for me and you
    to do what we do
    and what we say

    i'll fight
    beside you.

    let's do this.
