Fugees - NO WOMAN NO CRY

A dedication to all the refugees worldwide
One time
Say, say, say
I remember when we used to sit in the government yard in Brooklyn
Observing the crookedness, as it mingled with the good people we meet
Good friends we had,
Good friends we've lost along the way
In this great future you can't forget your past
So dry your tears I say
And to my peeps who passed away,

No woman, no cry, no woman no cry
Say say say.
Hey little sister don't shed no tears
No woman no cry say say say.

I remember when we used to rock in a project yard in Jersey,
And little Georgie would make the firelight,
As stolen cars passed through the night
And then we'd hit the corner store for Roots, paper, and brew
My drink's my only remedy
For pain of losing family, but while I'm gone Shorty,
Everything's gonna be alright, everything's gonna be alright,
Fugees come to the dance tonight, everything's gonna be alright,
O everything's gonna be alright,
The gun man's in the house tonight,
But everything's gonna be alright.

Oh ah, oh ah
Oh ah, oh ah
Oh ah, oh ah
Oh ah, oh ah
Oh ah, oh ah
Oh ah, oh ah
Oh ah, oh ah

No woman no cry, no woman no cry
Hey, little sister, don't shed no tears
No woman no cry say say say

I remember when we used to sit in a government yard in Trenchtown
The hypocrites as they mingled with the good people we meet
Good friends we had
Oh good friends we've lost along the way, hey
In this great future, you can't forget your past
So dry your tears I say
And no woman no cry, no woman no cry
Say say say
Hey, little sistser, don't shed no tears
No woman no cry and to my peeps who passed away

Oh ah, oh ah
Oh ah, oh ah
Oh ah, oh ah
Oh ah, oh ah
Oh ah, oh ah
