Our people gonna rise (2x)Listen to our cries through the pain & liesOur people gonna rise
Our people gonna sing (2x)In spite of everything, hear our freedom ringOur people gonna sing
Our people gonna fight (2x)For what we know is right, we’ll march into the nightOur people gonna fight
Our people gonna grieve (2x)Whatever you believe, we have the right to breatheOur people gonna grieve
Our people gonna pray (2x)Try to take our rights away, see you on election dayOur people gonna pray
