Текст песни Tricky - Black Steel

(C. Ridenhour/W. Drayton/E. Sadler/H. Shocklee)

I got a letter from the government

The other day

I Opened and read it

It said they were suckers

They wanted me for the army or whatever

Picture me given’ a damn — I said never

Here is a land that never gave a damn

About a brother like me and myself

Because they never did

I wasn’t wit’ it, but just that very minute…

It occured to me

The suckers had authority

Cold sweatin’ as I dwell in my cell

How long has it been?

They got me sittin’ in the state pen

I gotta get out — but that thought was thought before

I contemplated a plan on the cell floor

I’m not a fugitive on the run

But a brother like me begun — to be another one

Public enemy servin’ time — they drew the line y’all

To criticize me some crime — never the less

They could not understand that I’m a Black man

And I could never be a veteran
