UB40 - Burden of Shame

Burden of Shame Lyrics

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 follow in blindness

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 a 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)
