Letras de canciones y video : Original Video




Desmond Dekker’s ground-breaking hit ‘Israelites’ was the first Jamaican-produced song to top the UK chart in April 1969. Now, 50 years on we celebrate with a brand new lyrics video to accompany the brilliant recording.

If you don’t know the lyrics, you can now sing along with the confidence that you’re getting it right – word for word!

Lyrics:

Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sir
So that every mouth can be fed
Poor, me Israelites

Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sir
So that every mouth can be fed
Poor, me Israelites

My wife and my kids, they packed up and leave me
Darling, she said, I was yours to receive
Poor, me Israelites

Shirt them a-tear up, trousers a go
I don’t want to end up like Bonnie and Clyde
Poor, me Israelites

After a storm there must be a calm
They catch me in the farm
You sound your alarm
Poor, me Israelites

I said I get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sir
So that every mouth can be fed
Poor, me Israelites

I said my wife and my kids, they are packed up and leave me
Darling, she said, I was yours to receive
Poor, me Israelites

Look me shirts them a-tear up, trousers a go
I don’t want to end up like Bonnie and Clyde
Poor, me Israelites

After a storm there must be a calm
They catch me in the farm
You sound your alarm
Poor, me Israelites

Poor me Israelites, poor me Israelites, poor me Israelites
