  • Your name is big brother
    You say that you're watching me on the tele
    Seeing me go nowhere
    Your name is big brother
    You say that you're tired of me protesting
    Children dying everyday
    My name is nobody
    But I can't wait to see your face inside my door ooh

    Your name is big brother
    You say that you got me all in your notebook
    Writing it down everyday
    Your name is I'll see ya
    I'll change if you vote me in as a pres
    The President of your soul
    I live in the ghetto
    You just come to visit me 'round election time

    Da, da, da, da, da, da,
    Da, da, da, da, da, do, do, do, do, do
    Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do

    I live in the ghetto
    Someday, I will move on my feet to the other side

    My name is secluded
    We live in a house the size of a matchbox
    Roaches live with us, wall to wall

    You've killed all our leaders
    I don't even have to do nothin' to you
    You'll cause your own country to fall Writer/s: Stevie Wonder
