John Handcocks

There is mean thing happening in this land
Mean things happening in this land
But the people are going on
The people are growing strong
There’s mean things happening in this land

There is mean thing happening in this land
Mean things happening in this land
Children crying in the street
They ain’t got no food to eat
There’s mean things happening in this land

There are mean thing happening in this land
Mean things happening in this land
We sent our boys all off to war
Now tell me what was it all for?
There’s mean things happening in this land

There is mean things happening in this land
There is mean things happening in this land

There are mean thing happening in this land
Mean things happening in this land
If you’re black or brown or tan
You’re in trouble with the man
There’s mean things happening in this land

There is mean thing happening in this land
Mean things happening in this land
But the people are going on
The people are growing strong
There’s mean things happening in this land
