Liedtext:

We refu­se to be
What you wan­ted us to be;
We are what we are:
That’s the way (way) it’s going to be. You don’t know!
You can’t edu­ca­te I
For no equal oppor­tu­ni­ty:
(Talkin’ ’bout my free­dom) Talkin’ ’bout my free­dom,
People free­dom (free­dom) and liber­ty!
Yeah, we’­ve been trod­ding on the wine­press much too long:
Rebel, rebel!
Yes, we’­ve been trod­ding on the wine­press much too long:

Tell the child­ren the truth;
Come on and tell the child­ren the truth.

’Cause – ’cau­se we’­ve been trod­ding on ya wine­press much too long:
Rebel, rebel!
And we’­ve been taken for gran­ted much too long:
Rebel, rebel now!

(Trodding on the wine­press) Trodding on the wine­press (rebel):
got to rebel, y’all (rebel)!
We’ve been trod­ding on the wine­press much too long – ye-e-ah! (rebel)
Yea-e-ah! (rebel) Yeah! Yeah!

From the very day we left the shores (trod­ding on the wine­press)
Of our Father’s land (rebel),
We’ve been trampled on (rebel),
Oh now! (we’­ve been oppres­sed, yeah!) Lord, Lord, go to …
