Hejsa Alle

Jeg sad faktisk og ledte efter SANGMINDER, men det emne er da vist forsvundet!

Jeg sidder her og skriver og skråler med på Bob Marleys gamle sange. Jeg har altid beundret den mand, ikke bare hans musik, men den måde han fik verdens øje og for den ”sorte musik” – reggae, som har sin oprindelse fra Jamaicas sorte befolkning, der alle er efterkommere af slaver der i fortiden blev stjålet bort Afrika, til et liv i gru og slaveri.

I vore dage er slaveriet ophørt, men har efterladt den sorte befolkning i elendighed og fattigdom ude omkring i verden. Hvert år verden over fejer vi Bob Marleys fødselsdag - (Marley er død for en del år siden af kræft) – i år d. 5. Februar fejede vi igen hans fødselsdag, han ville have fyldt 60 år, hvis han var iblandt os i dag.

Vi var over 1000 mennesker i Vega i København, der skrålede med på alle de gamle sange om retfærdighed, fred og kærlighed. Nu skråler jeg alene her…. kan I høre mig?

Title: Get Up, Stand Up
Artist: Bob Marley



Lyrics: Get up, stand up: stand up for your rights!
Get up, stand up: stand up for your rights!
Get up, stand up: stand up for your rights!
Get up, stand up: don’t give up the fight!

Preacherman, don’t tell me,
Heaven is under the earth.
I know you don’t know
What life is really worth.
It’s not all that glitters is gold;
’alf the story has never been told:
So now you see the light, eh!
Stand up for your rights. come on!

Get up, stand up: stand up for your rights!
Get up, stand up: don’t give up the fight!
Get up, stand up: stand up for your rights!
Get up, stand up: don’t give up the fight!

Most people think,
Great God will come from the skies,
Take away everything
And make everybody feel high.
But if you know what life is worth,
You will look for yours on earth:
And now you see the light,
You stand up for your rights. jah!

Get up, stand up! (jah, jah!)
Stand up for your rights! (oh-hoo!)
Get up, stand up! (get up, stand up!)
Don’t give up the fight! (life is your right!)
Get up, stand up! (so we can’t give up the fight!)
Stand up for your rights! (lord, lord!)
Get up, stand up! (keep on struggling on!)
Don’t give up the fight! (yeah!)

We sick an’ tired of-a your ism-skism game -
Dyin’ ’n’ goin’ to heaven in-a jesus’ name, lord.
We know when we understand:
Almighty God is a living man.
You can fool some people sometimes,
But you can’t fool all the people all the time.
So now we see the light (what you gonna do? ),
We gonna stand up for our rights! (yeah, yeah, yeah!)

So you better:
Get up, stand up! (in the morning! git it up!)
Stand up for your rights! (stand up for our rights!)
Get up, stand up!
Don’t give up the fight! (don’t give it up, don’t give it up!)
Get up, stand up! (get up, stand up!)
Stand up for your rights! (get up, stand up!)
Get up, stand up! ( ... )
Don’t give up the fight! (get up, stand up!)
Get up, stand up! ( ... )
Stand up for your rights!
Get up, stand up!
Don’t give up the fight! /fadeout/
