Testo sorry - ub40

Please don't say sorry

Presuming a respect for what you say

If in your heart you mean it

Then you'll understand me feeling

You must prove it; sign the cheque without delay

Most humbly yours
four hundred years back pay



Chorus



I'm not begging charity

Don't confuse the things I say

Give me what belongs to me

Give me what belongs to me



Just don't say sorry

As if that can excuse this tyranny

No value in your talking

Money speaks and bullshit's walking

Round in circles re-inventing history

Trying to erase our memory


/>
Chorus



I'm not begging charity..... Etc



If you say sorry

Can I assume you've realised the shame

The seeds of your oppression

Fall and ripen with aggression

You can't hold us any longer with your chains

Time to compensate us for our claims



Don't bother wi' no sorry

Don't bother wi' delay

A four hundred years

Is not just the other day



I'm not begging charity

Don't confuse up your mind

Payment overdue

Fe a long long time



You come a we gate

No bother hesitate

You tek away we tings

Like a damn pirate
