"How It Really Is"


And how it really is...
Marvin Gaye, “Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)”

"Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)"

“Dah, dah, dah, dah
dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah
Dah, dah, dah, dah
Dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah
Dah, dah, dah

Rockets, moon shots,
Spend it on the have nots.
Money, we make it,
'Fore we see it you take it.

Oh, make you wanna holler,
The way they do my life.
Make me wanna holler,
The way they do my life.
This ain't livin', This ain't livin'
No, no baby, this ain't livin'
No, no, no...

Inflation, no chance,
To increase finance.
Bills pile up sky high,
Send that boy off to die...

Make me wanna holler,
The way they do my life.
Make me wanna holler,
The way they do my life.
Dah, dah, dah
Dah, dah, dah

Hang ups, let downs,
Bad breaks, set backs,
Natural fact is
I can't pay my taxes.

Oh, make me wanna holler,
And throw up both my hands.
Yea, it makes me wanna holler,
And throw up both my hands.

Crime is increasing.
Trigger happy policing.
Panic is spreading,
God know where we're heading...

Oh, make me wanna holler,
They don't understand.
Dah, dah, dah
Dah, dah, dah
Dah, dah, dah

Mother, mother...
Everybody thinks we're wrong.
Who are they to judge us
Simply cause we wear our hair long.”
