Lyrics

Children of Israel
This is the time, we must come together
Live in unity!

Are we not the sons of slaves?
(Yes we are, I said yes we are)
Are we not the children that run away from plantations?
(Yes we are, I said yes we are)
Are we not the children of Israel?

They took us away from Africaland
Brought us down here in Babylon
Now we all like a roaring lian
Jah high, Jah high, yeah

Are we not the sons of slaves?
(Yes we are, I said yes we are)(Help me now, now)
Are we not the children that run away from plantations?
(Yes we are, I said yes we are)
Are we not gonna get no freedom? Help me now, now
How long will it take until you give us a little justice?

Took us away on a rocking ship
And that would be heavy, ginnal ship
All we could feel, was the rocking whip
Jah high, Jah high, yeah

Are we not the sons of slaves?
(Yes we are, I said yes we are)
Are we not the children that run away from plantations?
(Yes we are, I said yes we are)
Are we not gonna get no freedom? Help me now, now
How long will it take until you give us a little justice?

Took us away on a rocking ship
And that would be heavy, ginnal ship
All we could feel, was the rocking whip
Jah high, Jah high, yeah

Are we not the sons of slaves?
(Yes we are, I said yes we are)
Are we not the children of Israel?
(Yes we are, I said yes we are)

Mister big man, how long will it take you, to give us justice?

Are we not the sons of slaves?
Are we not the children of Israel? Help me now, now
How long, how long, how long will it take you?

(Why, oh why, why, oh why people like you have to treat us like this?
