(Cry of a Common Man)

give me love, don’t gimme sex
I’ve seen too much of that
Besides, I don’t wanna waste my sweat
Gimme strength and the knowledge
I need to enhance my consciousness
Gimme love so that I can find peace within myself
Give me education, give me skills
So that I can increase my abilities
To compete for job opportunities
Gimme a job so that I can pay the bills
And feed my seeds.

Gimme love so that I can find peace
Gimme love, don’t give me an empty bag
Filled with promises
Get me a piece of land
So that I can build myself
A home where I can lay my head.

Gimme work so that I can pay the rent
I need books to read, give me libraries
Don’t give me lies, give me the truth please
I don’t need you weapons, don’t give me guns
Give me schools, give me all the necessary tools
That I need to school the youth
Gimme love, so that I can find peace
And spread it in all the streets.

Give me access to insight
So that I can promote and exercise
Protect and realise my socio-economic rights
Pleeze, don’t privatise my right to a decent life
Give me clinics so that I can take care of the sick and weak
Don’t feel pity for me, I don’t need your sympathy
Gimme love, don’t give me charity
Show me some solidarity
Show me love, show me some humanity
Give me peace, give me justice and equity
So that I can change my poverty dominated reality
Gimme love so that I can find peace
And spread it in all the streets.
