about

There needs to be a shift in thinking. A shift in power. A shift in mind, body and spirit regarding racism in America and the rest of the free world. The song poses a real question that supersede the lyrics to the song. If you knew you were going to get what you gave would you still treat others the the way you do? Negatively or Positively: There is always a choice.

"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor."
Desmond Tutu

lyrics

“Get What You Gave”
Written, Produced and Performed by Dame Drummer.

I wanna see the white man hang from a tree
Eyes bulging red while he stare at me
I wanna see his children work for me
I ain’t paying em shh they gon work for free

I wanna beat the white man just for fun
Sick my my dogs on him and watch him run
I wanna see the white man beg to be free
And beg for some of that money he making me

Tables turn watch and learn
Freedom come watch it burn
Would you hate would you embrace
If you’s gon Get What You Gave

I wanna let the whit man leave my fields
Work hard on his own but he pay me still
Show him everyday I impose my will
Give him weapons of death and watch him kill

Tables turn watch and learn
Freedom come watch it burn
Would you hate would you embrace
If you’s gon Get What You Gave

Maybe I want this maybe I don’t
Maybe it’ll erase the pain that I feel maybe it won’t
Would you treat me different if you knew one day
That you’s Get What You Gave

Well?
Home of the brave
Land of the slave
Would you like to take my place?

Tables turn watch and learn
Freedom come watch it burn
Would you hate would you embrace
If you’s gon Get What You Gave

Make America Great For The First Time
