SIT DOWN

SIT DOWN


sit down
sit down
sit down
sit down

you've had your chance
when you tried to dance
you're such a fool
you ain't so cool

sit down
people in the city
they ain't so pretty

sit down
keep a seat don't get up
sit down
keep a seat don't you dare stand up

you think you're hot
is that all you've got?
go rest your feet, brother
forget that beat

you've got to lose that groove, y'all
if you wanna be with me
give it everything you got
remember to be free, child
concentration is essential for your grooving
in the ghetto everybody
wants you to stop moving

sit down
keep a seat don't get up
sit down
keep a seat don't you dare stand up

i wonder what color is my skin, y'all?
i'm wondering:
what social class is my ass in?

sit down


1980 r.stevie moore

as appears on
clack!
has-beens and never-weres
