Muse of de day: Emancipate Yourself…

For the muse of the day today, one of my favourite songs from my beloved artist Bob Nestor Marley.

[Verse 1]
Old pirates, yes, they rob I
Sold I to the merchant ships
Minutes after they took I
From the bottomless pit
But my hand was made strong
By the hand of the Almighty
We forward in this generation
Triumphantly

[Chorus]
Won’t you help to sing
These songs of freedom?
Cause all I ever have
Redemption songs
Redemption songs

[Verse 2]
Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our minds!
Have no fear for atomic energy
Cause none of them can stop the time
How long shall they kill our prophets
While we stand aside and look?
Some say it’s just a part of it
We’ve got to fulfill the book

[Chorus]
Won’t you help to sing
These songs of freedom?
Cause all I ever have
Redemption songs
Redemption songs
Redemption songs

[Acoustic Break]

[Verse 3]
Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our minds!
Whoa! Have no fear for atomic energy
Cause none of them-ah can-ah stop-ah the time
How long shall they kill our prophets
While we stand aside and look?
Yes, some say it’s just a part of it
We’ve got to fulfill the book

[Chorus]
Won’t you help to sing
These songs of freedom?
Cause all I ever have
Redemption songs

[Outro]
All I ever have
Redemption songs
These songs of freedom
Songs of freedom
