Raheem Devaughn – Marvin Used To Say Lyrics (feat. The Colleagues)

[Intro]
Police killing my brother in the street
No justice no peace
Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhh

[Verse 1]
They said the world is changing
It ain’t for the better
Wonder if God left us hanging
Feels like he ain’t been providing no shelter
For this stormy weather we been facing
(Oh what’s going on)
We still ain’t got answers
Since Marvin asked a long time ago
Oh, what’s going on
I wanna know

[Pre-Chorus]
Who de we run to?
And who do we call on?
What’s the use of still saying prayers
If deaf ears, they fall on
(You want to believe)
Wanna believe there’s a bеtter place
When it’s all said and donе
The key is to keep the faith
For our race to be won
Raise me up a song

[Chorus]
What’s going on, oh oh
(Oh, what’s going on?)
I remember
Marvin used to say
Somebody tell me
(Oh, what’s going on?)
I gotta know
Marvin used to say, Marvin used to say
(Oh, what’s going on?)
Tell me, tell me
(Oh, what’s going on?)
What’s going on? What’s going on?

[Verse 2]
Seems like from birth I was cursed
With a guilty complexion
Can’t even walk the street in peace
Without the fear of been arrested
Now the community is divided
We dying by thousands from this virus
Cities in shamble, riots

Like Marvin used to say
What’s going on? What’s going on?

[Pre-Chorus]
Who de we run to?
And who do we call on?
What’s the use of still saying prayers
If deaf ears, they fall on
(You want to believe)
Wanna believe there’s a better place
When it’s all said and done
The key is to keep the faith
For our race to be won
Raise me up a song

[Chorus]
What’s going on, oh oh
(Oh, what’s going on?)
Marvin used to say
Somebody tell me
(Oh, what’s going on?)
I got, I gotta know, oh
Mama played the song as a young boy
(Oh, what’s going on?)
Marvin used to say
Tell me, tell me
What’s going on?
(Oh, what’s going on?)
What’s going on? What’s going on?

[Bridge]
Marvin used to also say
Save the children, save the babies
So a message to the youth
The future lies in your hands
To the fight of injustice is one
We are one

[Outro]
To Tamika Mallory and Rashad Robinson
Keep pushing on (Keep pushing on)
Jumaane Williams, Alicia Garza, Opal Tometi
We are not alone
Angela Rye (My sister), Patrisse Cullors, my brother Mysonne (My brother)
Keep fighting, oh ooh oh
Keep marching on (Marching on)
Brother Ben, keep teaching on
