Tribal

  • We all got our marks to what or who we belong
    Apart we are weak but together we're strong
    Don't knock one of us or we all take offence
    For a quiff or a crew we can jump to defence
    With the drum that you bring or the song that you sing
    Tribal, oh oh oh oh
    Tribal, oh oh oh oh

    Fashion is something that comes and goes
    Fickle as fables of emperors clothes
    What you put on tells a lot of your mind
    If you're part of a pack or one of a kind
    With the drum that you bring or the song that you sing
    Tribal, oh oh oh oh
    Tribal, oh oh oh oh

    Standing in a crowd, I hold my head up proud
    What's right for you for me it may be wrong
    It's great to be different but have something to belong

    When you look in the mirror, tell me what do you see
    Someone new or your ancestry
    You're a king, you're a queen, you're a wizard, a fool
    Or if you're me then rockabilly rules
    With the drum that you bring or the song that you sing
    Tribal, oh oh oh oh Writer/s: IMELDA MARY HIGHAM
