Angela

Album: Some Time in New York City (1972)
  • Sister, there's a wind that never dies
    Sister, we're breathing together
    Sister, our love and hopes forever keep on moving oh so slowly in the world

    They gave you sunshine
    They gave you sea
    They gave you everything but the jailhouse key
    They gave you coffee
    They gave you tea
    They gave you everything but equality

    Angela, can you hear the earth is turning?
    Angela, the world watches you
    Angela, you soon will be returning to your sisters and brothers in the world

    Sister, you're still a people teacher
    Sister, your word reaches far
    Sister, there's a million different races but we all share the same future in the world

    They gave you sunshine
    They gave you sea
    They gave you everything but the jailhouse key
    They gave you coffee
    They gave you tea
    They gave you everything but equality

    Angela, they put you in prison
    Angela, they shot down your man
    Angela, you're one of the millions of political prisoners in the world Writer/s: JOHN LENNON, YOKO ONO
