10. We Got A Race To Run - Staples Jr. Singers

I’m telling you people anywhere
We got a race
We got a race to run
Hey, hey people
(we got a race to run)

You messed with your sister
(we got a race to run)
You messed with your brother
(we got a race to run)
Hey, hey people
(we got a race to run)

They tell me old man died a poor man
The rich man thought he had all he need
But after old man had to die
They tell me no one paid attention
To lies about it
But they tell me God give
God sent an angel to get lies about it
But soon the rich man died too
They tell me how it made him feel foolish
After the rich man died and went to Hell
They tell me the rich man said
Father Abraham, son lied to my brothers
And tell my brothers
Those cards that they play

Hey, hey people
(we got a race to run)
You messed with your sister
(we got a race to run)
You messed with your brother
(we got a race to run)
Seven cars to drive, all them fine clothes
Nice home to live in
You think you have all you need

Hey, hey people
(we got a race to run)

Hey, hey people
(we got a race to run)
