Mandela cumple 95 años




Nelson Mandela cumple hoy 95 años. Hace 25 estaba en la carcel. Quedó libre en 1990, tras haber pasado más de 27 años en prisión.

Tracy Chapman canta su Talkin' 'bout a Revolution en el Homenaje a Mandela en su 70 cumpleaños (Free Mandela, 11 de junio de 1988)



TALKIN' ABOUT A REVOLUTION

Don't you know
They're talkin' bout a revolution
It sounds like a whisper
Don't you know
They're talkin' about a revolution
It sounds like a whisper
While they're standing in the welfare lines
Crying at the doorsteps of those armies of salvation
Wasting time in the unemployment lines
Sitting around waiting for a promotion

Poor people gonna rise up
And get their share
Poor people gonna rise up
And take what's theirs

Don't you know
You better run, run, run...
Oh I said you better
Run, run, run...

Finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin' bout a revolution
