Marvin Gaye - Inner City Blues (make me wanna holler)


Dah, dah, dah, dah ....

Rockets, moon shots, spend it on the have nots
Money, we make it, 'fore we see it you take it
Oh, make me wanna holler the way they do my life, yeah
Make me wanna holler the way they do my life
This ain't livin', this ain't livin'
No, no baby, this ain't livin', no, no, no, no

Inflation, no chance to increase finance
Bills pile up sky high, send that boy off to die
Oh, make me wanna holler the way they do my life
Yeah, make me wanna holler the way they do my life
Oh yeah, baby

Dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah ....

Hang ups, let downs, bad breaks, set backs
Natural fact is I can't pay my taxes
Oh, make me wanna holler and throw up both my hands
Yeah, it makes me wanna holler and throw up both my hands, oh

Crime is increasing, trigger happy policing
Panic is spreading, God knows where we're heading
Oh, make me .... wanna holler .... they don't understand

Dah, dah, dah, dah .... ow!

Mother, mother, everybody thinks we're wrong
Mother, who are they to judge us, mother, mother
Simply 'cause we wear our hair long, mother - ooh
Aye-aye-aye-aye ....

(Gaye/Nyx) 1971
