7 amazing Gil Scott Heron lyrics
After hearing _I'm New Here_ on Friday, here's a few of Gil's best words. There's loads we missed, add your own in the comments.
And don’t you think it’s a crime?
– The Bottle
The revolution will not be right back after a message about a white tornado, white lightning, or white people
– The Revolution Will Not Be Televised
And as if all that shit wasn’t enough, a rat done bit my sister Nell. But Whitey’s on the moon
– Whitey On The Moon
How would we ever get over over loosing our minds?
– We Almost Lost Detroit
I hope that when I have kids of my own, they really don’t get shook / When I tell them that there are things they’ve got to learn that can’t be found in books
– Sex Education, Ghetto Style
And the freezing winter’s cold / Now tell me, Who’ll pay reparations on my soul
– Who’ll Pay Reparations On My Soul
Look over your shoulder motherfucker. I am coming.
Do you love good music?
