Eddy Grant - Blood Money lyrics

Blood Money by Eddy Grant


The British charity organization Oxfam
Yesterday accused the international monetary fund
Of victimizing poor people in
The third world countries by imposing
Austerity policies on their governments
The organization said in a statement
'The poor are paying too high price
For the third world's debt crisis'
Oxfam called on leaders of Western nations
Attending the Bonn summit
To take action to solve the problems
Yeah, blood money
Whoa-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh
Some of us we never reason
Some of us we never learn
Some of us we keep on searching
The mercenary soldiers are on the burn
Oh, and we keep on drifting
And they cannot sleep at night
Oh, and the swords a-mystic
Who's gonna care, the fingers are on
Blood money, will it pay for children
Blood money, will it pay for children
Blood money, will it repair famine
Blood, blood, blood
We take the money
But soon sing a different tune
Blood money, will it pay for children
Blood money, will it pay for children
Blood money, will it repair famine
Blood, blood, blood
The mercenary soldiers are on blood money
Blood money (oh-oh)
Blood money
Blood, blood, blood
Sometimes I sit and wonder
How you never show concern
And all you ever do is too pay
U-Essayed without no dignity
Sometimes I sit and wonder
How you never show concern
And all you ever do is too pay
USA, we don't want no more
Blood money, will it pay for children
Blood money, will it pay for children
Blood money, will it repair famine
Blood, blood, blood (oh-oh)
Blood money, will it pay for children
Blood money, will it pay for children
Blood money, will it repair famine
Blood, blood, blood
Some-a-dem are perpetrator
Of-a this vicious crime
They let the government go crazy
Just giving money without any reason or rhyme
Never wanna show me how to
Technology to grow me corn
But one of them days, you'll see me
Mercenary soldiers and all
Blood money, will it pay for children
Blood money, will it pay for children
Blood money, will it repair famine
Blood, blood, blood
The mercenary soldiers are on
Blood money, will it pay for children
Blood money, will it pay for children
Blood money, will it repair famine
Blood, blood, blood (oh-oh)
Blood money
Blood money
Blood money
Blood, blood, blood
Blood money
Blood money
Blood money
Blood, blood, blood
Blood money
Blood money
Blood money
Blood, blood, blood
