Peter Tosh

"400 Years"

[Verse 1]
400 years
(400 years, 400 years)
And, it's the same philosophy
I said it's 400 years
(400 years, 400 years)
And my people just begin to see

[Bridge]
Why do they fight against these youth, these youth of today?
And without these youths, they would be gone
All gone astray

[Verse 2]
Come on, make a move:
(Make a move, make a move)
I can see that the time
And the little fools don't see
(Fools don't see, fools don't see)
I know the youth of today got to be strong

[Bridge]
So come on with me
I'll take you to a land, a land of liberty
Sweet liberty
Where we can live, live a good, good life
And be free
Look how long

[Chorus]
It's 400 years
(400 years, 400 years)
Wait so long
And it's the same old time philosophy
I said it's 400 years
(400 years, 400 years)
Gettin' impatient
'Cause my people, they fail to see

[Bridge]
But come on with me
You're black and you're proud
You got to be free, you got to be free
Don't sit down on your pride
There's no time for you to hide
Jah is at your side, He's at your side
Just look how long

[Outro]
It's 400 years
(400 years, 400 years)
And it's the same old-time colonial, imperialistic philosophy
I said it's 400 years
(400 years, 400 years)
And my people they still don't see
400 years
(400 years, 400 years)
Of slavery
They say it was abolished
But that was only a polish
(400 years, 400 years)
It's the same philosophy, same philosophy
400 Years
(400 years, 400 years)
Long, gone years
Generation come and go
And the same...
Columbus, Henry Morgan, Bartholomeu Dias
