I've worked on jobs with my feet and my hands

But all the work I did was for the other man

And now we demands a chance to do things for ourselves

We tired of beatin' our head against the wall

An' workin' for someone else

Now we demand a chance to do things for ourselves

We tired of beatin' our heads against the wall

And workin' for someone else look a-here

There's one thing more I got to say right here

We rather die on our feet than keep livin' on our knees.
