lyrics

Marvin Gaye (Intro)

Mother, mother
Everybody thinks we're wrong
Who are they to judge us
Simply cause we wear our hair long

Marvin Gaye (Chorus)

They make me wanna holler
the way they do my life, Yeah
They make me wanna holler
the way they do my life,
This ain't living, This ain't living,
Nah nah baby, this ain't living,
no no no no,

DJ DX (Verse One)

Yo,
You can't tell me I'm hip
you cant tell me I'm hop
people dying everyday, they getting
killed on they blocks,You got blacks
in the streets that like to stand and watch,
while another black man gets recorded and shot,
show no love for these pigs cuz we hate
crooked cops, this whole thing that you seeing
was predicted by PAC, we tired of banging on these
doors, it's time to brake these locks, so the system
cant blame us for not having a lot, Y'all done
corrupted our culture and everything we created, then y'all
sit back and laugh at black entertainment, sick of being famous
I just wanna meet Jesus, cuz down here on earth there's no more
black leaders, just a bunch of fake preachers and a whole lot of deceivers,
Its time to say peace like the poor righteous teachers, lord show some grievance
for this revolution war, is blacks and puerto ricans down for the same cause ?! -


Marvin Gaye (Chorus)

They make me wanna holler
the way they do my life, Yeah
They make me wanna holler
the way they do my life,
This ain't living, This ain't living,
Nah nah baby, this ain't living,
no no no no,


DJ DX (Verse Two)

This aint about race so forget
the competition, we live in a world
with corrupted politicians, look at
the way we living, we all playing the victim,
its time to unite, lets go against the system,
cuz killing one another wont help us raise our children,
if morals brought money, then we all would have millions,
we are all civilians just living in the ghetto,
Its either sell drugs, grip the chrome, bust the metal,
it took Freddie to die for yall to do something,
when Treyvon died man yall aint do nothing, Eye for an eye,
so lets kill that man, If you don't have an idea then its
George Zimmerman, and fuck the white house, Obama's the middleman,
he never brought change all he did was bring pain, Hilary up next,
this shit is just a game, but all this anger made the people go insane! -

Marvin Gaye (Chorus)

They make me wanna holler
the way they do my life, Yeah
They make me wanna holler
the way they do my life,
This ain't living, This ain't living,
Nah nah baby, this ain't living,
no no no no,

DJ DX (Verse Three)

Ugh,
Heart of a lion, the eye of a panther,
why is blacks in the streets, dying
quicker then cancer?! This black on black crime
is not the answer, They killed Mike Brown,
he even had his hands up! They choked Eric Garner,
he was cuffed in hand cuffs, They popped Jordan Davis
he was parked in a red truck, They killed Rekia Boyd
where there were no cameras, They shot Oscar Grant, so
its time to stand up, No!!! Listen, forget the food and stamps,
all we want is justice and freedom on the land, so fuck the police
and the Klu Klux Klan, The gangs came together just for the black man,
Dam, you see we suffering in poverty, all you do is lie and fuck up,
the economy, but where is the equality for all nationalities? But you call us
thugs for looting and rioting! -

Marvin Gaye (Chorus)

They make me wanna holler
the way they do my life, Yeah
They make me wanna holler
the way they do my life,
This ain't living, This ain't living,
Nah nah baby, this ain't living,
no no no no,
