Ferre Grignard - Ring, ring, I’ve got to sing
Tekst en muziek: Ferre Grignard
(1966)







Oh, don’t cry my baby
Don’t you cry all the while
Don’t cry my baby
Just give me a smile



Seen my daddy die in the war
Seen my mama die crying for



Ring, ring
Well, I’ve got to sing
Ring, ring
Well, I’ve got to sing



They call me a hounddog
They call me a twine
It’s all because of my colour
For they want to have fine



Ring, ring
Well, I’ve got to sing
Ring, ring
Well, I’ve got to sing



De dam do da de day
Dam do da de dam
De dam do da de day
De dam do da de dam



They’re talking about freedom
Of religion and race
But if you’re a negro
They slap you in face



Ring, ring
Well, I’ve got to sing
Ring, ring
Well, I’ve got to sing



So, what are you still fighting for
They send ’m off to sea
Well, I couldn’t stand more words
I’m going stop free



Ring, ring
Well, I’ve got to sing
Ring, ring
Well, I’ve got to sing



Well, I’m still happy
So, don’t cry my babe
Together we’ll just try for
Being free people some day



Ring, ring
So, we’ve got to sing
Ring, ring
Together we will sing



De dam do da de dam
De dam do da de day
De dam do da de dam
De dam do da de day



De dam do da de de dam dam
De dam do da de day
De dam do da de de dam dam
De dam do da de day



Mm, mm, mm, mm, mm
Mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm
Mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm
Mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm



De dam de dam
De dam do da de day
De dam de dam
De dam do da de day
