This Is My Country (The Impressions)

Some people think we don't have the right To say it's my country Before they give in, theyd rather fuss and fight Than say it's my country I've paid three hundred years or more Of slave driving, sweat, and welts on my back This is my country Too many have died in protecting my pride For me to go second class Weve survived a hard blow and I want you to know That you must face us at last And I know you will give consideration Shall we perish unjust or live equal as a nation This is my country And I know you will give consideration Shall we perish unjust or live equal as a nation This is my country
