Burden Of Shame Lyrics

Artist: UB40
Album: Live

There are murders that we must account for
Bloody deeds have been done in my name
Criminal acts we must pay for
And our children will shoulder the blame

(Chorus)

I`m a British subject, not proud of it
While I carry the burden of shame (Repeat)


As a nation we`re following blindly
No-one stops to question why
Our money`s supporting an army
And a boy in Soweto dies


(Chorus)

I`m a British subject, not proud of it
While I carry the burden of shame (Repeat)

Must we go on ignoring forever
The cries of an African son
There`s a soldier`s hand on the trigger
But it`s we who are pointing the gun


(Chorus)

I`m a British subject, not proud of it
While I carry the burden of shame (Repeat)
