Too Young To Die

Don't want no war, no.
No, no, no,
'Cause we're too young to die.
Too young to die!
So many people,
All around the world yeah,
All around the world,
Seen their brothers fry.
Ah-seen your brother fry?
What's the motive,
In their madness?
Oh, I wish I knew,
You made my people cry,
You made my people cry.
So politicians,
Ah-this time,
I think you'd better keep your distance,
Say, sing it loud:

We're too young to... (Chorus)

What's the answer
- I wish I knew - 
To our problems?
I think we've gone too high,
I think we've gone too high.
Little children,
Never said a word now,
You know they never said a word,
But still they have to die,
Well I'm asking why.
It won't be long,
No, no, no,
Dancing like we do yeah,
Oh, like we do now,
To put this sad world right,
I gotta put it right.
So don't you worry,
People we don't have to suffer no more.

'Cause we're too young to... (Chorus)

    I've got to know,
    Are we too young to die?
    Oh I'm too young.
    I'm just too young.

(Instrumental break. Partway through Jay says: 'You know  we're too young')

(Y'all hear the message?)
All gone when they drop the bomb,
Can the politicians reassure?
'Cause here I am,
Presuming that,
Nobody wants a war.
There's so many people praying,
Just to find out if they're staying,
But lately stately governments,
And disillusioned leaders,
So full of empty promises
But rarely do they feed us,
Put our backs against the wall,
Or don't we count at all?
Can you decide,
Are you mesmerised?
Do you know which side you're standing?
'Cause when it falls,
Gon' take us all,
Got to know what we're demanding.
I'll never lie,
Can't you hear me cry,
Coming from on high:

We're too young to die!... (Chorus with ad-libs to fade)
