GiVe uP (Tryin’ to Keep me Down)

I am a camel thru the needle’s eye-
I am an angel born in hell-
I was the little girl who never cried-
What keeps me going could ya ever tell?

Give up –
Oh give up-

I am a girl who loves the boy-
I am a woman with my own choice-
Listen to the caged bird singing wi.d joy-
Look at this dumb blonde with a voice-

Give up-
Oh give up-

Cos I’m never gonna-
cos I’m never gonna-
cos I’m never gonna-
Cos I’m never gonna

Cos I’m never-
never-
I’m never-
Cos I’m never gonna

Give up tryin to keep me down-
Give up –
oh Give up tryin to keep me down-
Give up, give up, give up –

cos I’m never gonna –
cos I’m never gonna-
cos I’m never gonna-
cos I’m never gonna

Cos I’m never-
never –
I’m never –
cos I’m never gonna –

Give up tryin to keep me down-
Give up-
Oh give up tryin to keep me down-
give up, give up, give up-

I’m so weak and you’re so strong-
You’re so right and I’m so wrong-
You try to silence me, cos you don’t like my song-
but I’ll be here when you are gone-

NEW Mini Movie: PRaYeR 4 the PoeT

Video

Hi lovely people… Do hope you’re well… So this is what I’ve been doing… producing new music in the Savage Studio and recently working with Tabla player Harvir Sahota… whom I recorded on this track. Electrostat/ aka John Clarke has done us an awesome audio mix. I made this little anime movie… the starring poet/ an original inspiration in the story is incredible Jamaican/ Brooklyn dub artist Ras Osagyefo, whom I met when we were all performing at Poetry for Palestine , which was a fundraiser for kids theatre company on the Gaza strip. So originally I wrote this for that … Is meant for all Protest Poets / activists & people who speak out against oppression, or for you if you’re feeling oppressed right now… all the very best to you, anna x
