TIMESTEP

(for Amus Mor)
 
 
if they could hear us coming
drumming!  

if they could hear us coming
mean & clean
slow draggin
purple blues  

if they could hear us coming
baggin & braggin
signifying ridin air
        she gotta red dres on
        starlite  

if they could hear us coming
smell like honeysuckle rose
before they lynched little man  

if they could hear us coming
humming a spiritual  

 Glory Halleujiah!

if they could hear us coming
marching on time
razor sharp, n
ever late  

if they could hear us coming
asking how come?  

if they could hear us coming
no instruments
nothing to lose  

if they could hear us coming
they could hear the Internationale
