Song of the Moment: Open the Doors - Richie Spice

Lyrics:
"I want you to be able to say that day that I did try to feed the hungry!" - Martin Luther King Jr.
Jah sent Jonah to Ninevah to warn them and him never really wanna go
Jah sent Jonah to Ninevah to warn and send troubles and a bag of woe
CHORUS:
Open the doors for the people in poverty
Open the doors if you care for humanity
Open the doors help the people of society out there (x2)

I see you laugh, and enjoying doing everything you want
scuba-dive and you ski and everyday you gallivant
while the masses of the people out there die of need and want
out there
you say that's okay yet you have a spirit smeared
while the seed that you sow is the fruit that's going to bear
can't wear the shoe, you put your sneakers on the pier
out there (chorus)

"Freedom, justice, and equality" - MLK
Don't live one race inferior while another's superior, we're losing the race with war and crime out there
for the people in the Middle East, for the people in the West Indies (chorus)

So many rivers running by still some people got no water
so many houses and land still some got no place to sleep
so much food still some got no food to eat
so much sign to us and still some ah them never will know joy
so much suffer in the street, yes,
so much mouths nah get to eat, yeah
so much war, people searching for peace (chorus)

Another gem.

Incidentally, have you ever checked out calabashmusic.com?

Glad you like it, Piet.

I just checked out that site and it's a definite bookmark, Thanks!

No problem. It seems to me the best and cheapest way to get at global music.

Check out their Fela Kuti selection: only $.99 per track (or cheaper if you buy 20 credits).
