They don’t care about us (TCN version)

Skinhead, deadhead
Everybody gone bad
No transformer, Power failure 
Everybody…Generator
In the street, Mama-put
Everybody dogfood
Night guard, Door man
Everybody ‘Chairman’

All I wanna say is that
They dont really care
about us…
All I wanna say is that
They dont really care
about us

Beat me, hate me
You can never break me
Will me, thrill me
You can never kill me
Chew me, sue me
Everybody do me
Bribe me fine me
Dont you ‘419’ me

All I wanna say is that
They dont really care
about us
All I wann say is that
They dont really care
about us

Tell me what has
become of my life
I love to drive
but the LASTMA dont love me
I am the victim of police
brutality, now
I’m tired of being the
victim of hate, you’re raping
me of my cash
Oh for Gods sake!
How much do these officials 
want to take from me? Set me free

Skinhead, deadhead
Everybody gone bad
Politicians, agitation
Everybody registration
In the street, at the corners
Everybody on Okadas

Black man blackmail
Throw the brother
in jail

All I wanna say is that
They dont really care
about us
All I wanna say is that
They dont really care
about us

Tell me what has become of my rights
Am I invisible cause you ignore me?
Your proclamation
promised me free liberty
I’m tired of being the victim
of shame
They’re throwing me in a
class with a bad name
I cant believe this is the
land from which I came
You know we really ought to see, The government dont
wanna see, but if
Saro-Wiwa was living, he
wouldn’t let this be, no,no

Skinhead, deadhead
Everybody gone bad
Situation, speculataion
Everybody litigation
Beat me, bash me
You can never trash me
Hit me, kick me
You can never get me

All I wanna say is that
They dont really care
about us
All I wanna say is that
They dont really care
about us …(Bridge)

Some things in life they
just don’t wanna see

But if Enahoro was
living, he wouldn’t let
this be no, no,
Skinhead, deadhead
Everybodys gone bad
Situation Segregation
Everybody allegation

In the street and the news
Everybody dogfood
kick me Hike me
Dont you wrong or
right me

All I wanna say is that
They dont really care
about us
All I wanna say is that
They dont really care
about us

All I wanna say is that
They dont really care
about …All I wanna say is that
They dont really care
about…All I wanna say is that
They dont really care
about us (hee hee, hoo-hoo!)
