Album Tracks

01Soul Rebel
I'm a rebel, soul rebel
I'm a capturer, soul adventurer
See the morning sun,
On the hillside
not living good, travel wide
Said I'm a living man
I've got work to do
If you're not happy, children
Then you must be blue
Must be blue, people say
I'm a rebel, let them talk,
Soul rebel, talk won't bother me
I'm a capturer, that's what they say
Soul adventurer, night and day
I'm a rebel, soul rebel
Do you hear them lippy
I'm a capturer, gossip around the corner
Soul adventurer. How they adventure on me
But, see the morning sun,
On the hillside
not living good, travel wide
Said I'm a living man
I've got work to do
If you're not happy, then you must be blue
I'm a rebel, soul rebel
I'm a capturer, soul adventurer
Do you hear me
I'm a rebel, rebel in the morning
Soul rebel, rebel at midday time
Soul Rebel
02Try Me
Try me, try me
Try me, try me
Try me, try me
Try me, try me
Try me, try me, try me
Try me, a wah wah wow
Try me, try me, try me
When the hurt is strong
And everything you do is wrong
You need someone to comfort you
Well, listen baby, I'll come first to you, so
Try me, try me, try me
Try me, a wah wah wow
Try me, try me, try me
Try me, a wah wah wow
If you need satisfaction
Listen baby, I've got the action
Where I am, that's where it's at
So, listen baby, it's tit for tat, so
Try me, try me, try me
Try me, a wah wah wow
Try me, try me, try me
Try me, a wah wah wow
Woo, woo-ooh, woo, woo, woo-ooh
Woo, woo-ooh, woo, woo, woo-ooh
Woo, woo-ooh, woo, woo, woo-ooh
Woo, woo-ooh, woo, woo, woo-ooh
One more thing I'd like to say right here
Try me, try me, try me
One more thing I'd like to say right here
Try me, try me, try me
Need good lovin'
I'm black, try me coming
Yes I'm black, try me and I'm coming
Try me, try me
Try Me
03It's Alright
The sun shall not smite I by day
Nor the moon by night.
And everything that I do
Shall be upful and right.

And if it's all night
It got to be (all right!)
Talking to you (all night!)
It got to be (all right!)

Mamma don't lose this one
I'm the lucky one under the sun.
If you make me move
Then you know we got the groove.

How do you like it?
How do you like it?
Do you, do you, do you, do you?

If it's all night
Got to be (all right!)
I'm working hard (all night!)
Got to be (all right!)

See (all night!) I work for my pay.
(All right!) Night and day.
(All night!) Work for my pay.
(All right!) Night and day.

Can't you feel it?

If it's, if it's, if it's
It's got to be (all right!)
If it's (all night!)
If it's (all right!)

Do you like it?
Water cold.
???

Make it back.
Tear-a-drop.
Wipe the tears from your eyes.
And don't you cry.
Wiping my lonely tears baby.
I tell you what.

If it's all night
Got to be (all right!)
If it's all night
Got to be (all right!)
It's Alright
04No Sympathy
I can't find no love
No sympathy
What kind of love
They've got for me
I'm on my way
To happiness
Where I can find
Some peace and rest.

When I'm in my trouble here,
Only me feels the pain.
Not one simple word,
Good word of advice,
From any of my so called friends.

I can't find no love
No sympathy
What kind of love
They've got for me
I'm on my way
To happiness
Where I can find
Some peace and rest.

Might as well, might as well
I get out, I get out of hell
Hell would never be made for me
So I'm gonna search, search till I'm free

I can't find no love
No sympathy
What kind of love
They've got for me
I'm on my way
To happiness
Where I can find
Some peace and rest.
No Sympathy

08Corner Stone
The stone that the builder refused,
Will always be the head cornerstone.
Sing it, brother!
The stone that the builder refused,
Will always be the head cornerstone.

You're a builder - here I am a stone.
Don't you think and refuse me
'Cause the things people refuse,
Are the things they should use.
Do you hear me? Hear what I say!

The stone that the builder refused,
Will always be the head cornerstone.
Tell me what!
The stone that the builder refused,
Will always be the head cornerstone.

Here I am, baby.
I'm a builder's stone.
Don't you pick and refuse me, listen!
The things people refuse,
Are the things they should use.
Do you 'ear me? Hear what I say!

The stone that the builder refused,
Will always be the head cornerstone.
The stone that the builder refused,
Will always be the head cornerstone.

I can be soft as a pillow.
Weep like a willow.
Caress and bring happiness.
Don't refuse me, don't you refuse.
Don't, don't, don't you refuse.
 
09400 Years
400 years (400 years, 400 years. Wo-o-o-o)
And it's the same -
The same (wo-o-o-o) philosophy
I've said it's four hundred years;
(400 years, 400 years. Wo-o-o-o, wo-o-o-o)
Look, how long (wo-o-o-o)
And the people they (wo-o-o-o) still can't see.
Why do they fight against the youth of today?
And without these youths, they would be gone -
All gone astray
Come on, let's make a move:
(make a move, make a move. Wo-o-o-o, wo-o-o-o)
Now that the time (wo-o-o-o) time has come (wo-o-o-o) - time has come,
Fools don't see
(fools don't see, fools don't see. Wo-o-o-o)
All those who make them strong.
So come with me to the land of the liberty
where we can live, live our lives and be free
400 years (400 years, 400 years. Wo-o-o-o)
And it's the same -
The same (wo-o-o-o) philosophy
400 years (400 years, 400 years. Wo-o-o-o)
and black people still cannot see
come with me you're black and you're proud
you've got to be free
stop sitting down on your pride just get high
oh 400 years (400 years, 400 years. Wo-o-o-o)
And it's the same -
The same (wo-o-o-o) philosophy
oh 400 years (400 years, 400 years. Wo-o-o-o)
why do black people close their eyes
come to reality
400 Years
