Wyclef Jean – Emergency Concert for The People of Iran – Lyrics

Tehran!
Tehran!

Equal rights and justice
The kids want
Equal rights and justice
The people in Iran want
Equal rights and justice
Yeah, equal rights and justice

[Gunpowder by Wyclef Jean]
But I smell gunpowder
Tehran got the gunpowder
Iran got the gunpowder
Brooklyn got the gunpowder
I asked my mama why do you cry
She said your brother, he just died
I told him not to go outside
He said he had to fight for his country’s rights

Equal rights and justice
He said he wants
Equal rights and justice
The people in Iran want
Equal rights and justice
Yeah, equal rights and justice

My brother’s been dead ever since
I didn’t believe it, but when I saw, I was convinced
Two shots to the head, he was already dead,
He said you want to live for what you believe

Tehran!

Equal rights and justice
They want
Equal rights and justice
[repeat]

So we go on
Paint the city green
Until we get what what we deserve
We gonna paint the city green
Until we get what we deserve
We gonna paint New York City green
Until we get what we deserve
We gonna paint the streets in Iran green
Until we get what we deserve

And that would be
Equal rights and justice
The people want
Equal rights and justice
Facebook can you hear me?
Yeah, equal rights and justice
Revolution […]
Equal rights and…
For the people in Iran

[Redemption Song by Bob Marley]
Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our minds,
Have no fear for atomic energy
None of them can stop the time.
How long will they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look?
Some say it’s just a part of it,
We’ve got to fulfill the book.
[…] Iran
Won’t you help me sing
These songs of freedom?
All I ever had
Redemption songs
[repeat]

For the people in Iran
Redemption songs
All I ever had
Redemption songs

For the mothers of Iran
For the people of Iran
For the mamas of Iran

[No Woman No Cry by Bob Marley]
No woman, no cry
No woman, no cry
No mothers in Iran, no cry
No woman, no cry

I remember when we used to sit
In the government yard in Brooklyn,
Oba, observing the hypocrites
As they would
Mingle with the good people we meet
Good friends we’ve had,
Good friends we’ve lost
Along the way
In this great future you can’t forget your past
So dry your tears, I say

No woman, no cry
No woman, no cry
For the mothers in Iran
Hey little sister, don’t shed no tears
No woman, no cry.
[…]

Everything’s gonna be all right!
[repeats]
Wear your green love tonight

No woman, no woman, no cry
No woman, no cry
Hey little sister, don’t shed no tears
No woman, no cry.

People in Iran
Don’t give up
Never give up
Don’t give up
Never give up
No woman, no cry

Hey little sister, don’t shed no tears
No woman, no cry.

For the people in Iran…
