400 years lyrics – bob marley

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 poor 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)
i can (wo-o-o-o) see time (wo-o-o-o) – time has come,
and if-a fools don’t see
(fools don’t see, fools don’t see. wo-o-o-o)
i can’t save the youth:
the youth (wo-o-o-o) is gonna be strong.
so, won’t you come with me;
i’ll take you to a land of liberty
where we can live – live a good, good life
and be free.

look how long: 400 years, (400 years, 400 years) –
way too long! (wo-o-o-o)
that’s the reason my people (wo-o-o-o) – my people can’t see.
said, it’s four hundred long years – (400 years, 400 years. wo-o-o-o)
give me patience (wo-o-o-o) – same philosophy.

it’s been 400 years, (400 years, 400 years)
wait so long! wo-o-o-o, wo-o-o-o.
how long? 400 long, long years. [fadeout]
