The Housemartins - Caravan of love
Tekst en muziek: Ernest Isley, Chris Jasper en Marvin Isley
(1987)






Aha, aha



Are you ready
Are you ready
Are you ready
Are you ready



Are you ready for the time of your life
It’s time you stand up and fight
It’s all right, it’s all right
Hand in hand we’ll take a caravan
To the motherland



One by one we’re gonna stand up with pride
One that can’t be denied
Stand up, stand up
From the highest mountain, valley low
We’ll join together with hearts of gold



Now the children of the world can see
This is a better place for us to be
The place in which we were born
So neglected and torn apart



Every woman, every man join the caravan of love
Stand up
Stand up
Stand up
Everybody take a stand, join the caravan of love
Stand up
Stand up
Stand up



I’m your brother
I’m your brother, don’t you know
She’s my sister
She’s my sister, don’t you know



We’ll be living in a world of peace
In the day when everyone is free
Oh, bring the young and the old
Won’t you let your love flow from your heart



Every woman, every man join the caravan of love
Stand up
Stand up
Stand up
Everybody take a stand, join the caravan of love
Stand up
Stand up
Stand up




I’m your brother
I’m your brother, don’t you know
She’s my sister
You’re waiting, you’re waiting
She’s my sister, don’t you know
You’re waiting, you’re waiting for the caravan



So are you ready
He’s coming
Are you ready
He’s coming
Are you ready
He’s coming
Are you ready
He’s coming on the caravan



You better get ready
Don’t worry
You better get ready
Don’t worry
You better get ready
Don’t worry
You better get ready
Worry ’bout the caravan



Aaah
Keep waiting
Aaah
Keep waiting
Ahahah
Keep waiting
Waiting for the caravan



Don’t worry
Don’t worry
