The Motions - Wasted words
Tekst en muziek: Robbie van Leeuwen
(1965)






In the States negroes fight for freedom
The slogans they cry aren’t wrong
But these are wasted words, only wasted words
Oh Lord, let the good times come



The greatest fighter is Martin Luther King
And when he speaks you see that they’re gonna sing
But these are wasted words, only wasted words
Oh Lord, let the good times come



Everyone asks the President to use his rule
He got power, but it seems that he should too
So these are wasted words, only wasted words
Oh Lord, let the good times come



Where’s the end of the fight for freedom
It could turn out right and all I hope and long
That there’ll be no wasted words, no wasted words
Oh Lord, let the good times come
