Gimme Hope Joanna Lyrics

Gimme Hope Joanna - The Rasta Boys

Well Jo'anna she runs a country

 

She runs in Durban and the Transvaal

 

She makes a few of her people happy oh

She don't care about the rest at all

 

She's got a system they call apartheid

 

It keeps a brother in a subjection

 

But maybe pressure will make Jo'anna see

How everybody could a live as one

Oh gimme hope

Jo'anna

 

Hope Jo'anna

Gimme hope

Jo'anna 'fore the morning come

Gimme hope

Jo'anna

 

Hope Jo'anna

Hope before the morning come

 

I hear she makes all the golden money

 

To buy new weapons any shape of guns

 

While every mother in a black Soweto fears

The killing of another son

 

Sneakin' across all the neighbors' borders

 

Now and again having little fun

 

She doesn't care if the fun and games she play

Is dangerous to everyone

Oh gimme hope

Jo'anna

Gimme hope

Jo'anna

Gimme hope

Jo'anna

Before the morning come

Gimme hope

Jo'anna

Gimme hope

Jo'anna

Hope before the morning come

 

She's got supporters in high up places

 

Who turn their heads to the city sun

 

Jo'anna give them the fancy money

Oh

To tempt anyone who'd come

 

She even knows how to swing opinion

 

In every magazine and the journals

 

For every bad move that this Jo'anna makes

They got a good explanation

Oh gimme hope

Jo'anna

Gimme hope

Jo'anna

Gimme hope

Jo'anna

Fore the morning come

Gimme hope

Jo'anna

Gimme hope

Jo'anna

Hope before the morning come

 

Even the preacher who works for Jesus

 

The Archbishop who's a peaceful man

 

Together say that the freedom fighters

Will

Overcome the very strong

 

I wanna know if you're blind Jo'anna

 

If you wanna hear the sound of drums

 

Can't you see that the tide is turning

Oh don't make me wait till the morning come

Oh gimme hope

Jo'anna

Gimme hope

Jo'anna

Gimme hope

Jo'anna

Fore the morning come

Gimme hope

Jo'anna

Gimme hope

Jo'anna

Hope before the morning come

 

Gimme hope

Jo'anna

Gimme hope

Jo'anna

Gimme hope

Jo'anna

Fore the morning come

Gimme hope

Jo'anna

Gimme hope

Jo'anna

Hope before the morning come
