THANK YOU ALABAMA! “The Karma’s Gonna Come On Down” by Lytingale

 
Angry old white man sittin’ in a tower.

Angry old white men sittin’ on the bench.

Angry old white men clingin’ to your power

But the karma’s gonna come on down.

Lies are lies, not alternative facts.

Lies are lies, and the truth’ll come out.

Lies are lies, you better clean up your act

Cause the karma’s gonna come on down

(Chorus:)

The karma’s gonna come on down.

The karma’s gonna come on down real soon.

Do unto others what you want done to you,

Cause the karma’s gonna come on down.  Oh, yeah.

Water is life, we’ll raise our voices.

Water is life, not money or oil.

Water is life, you can’t drink that poison, and the karma’s….

Climate is changing, storms are getting stronger.

Climate is changing gotta mend our ways.

Climate is changing, can’t wait much longer, cause the karma’s…

(Chorus:)

The karma’s gonna come on down.

The karma’s gonna come on down real soon.

Do unto others what you want done to you,

Cause the karma’s gonna come on down.  Oh, yeah.

 

People of color workin’ harder and harder.

People of color want a chance to rise.

People of color have lives that matter, And the karma’s….

LGBTQ, our friends and relations.

LGBTQ need the same rights.

LGBTQ love instead of hatin’, cause the karma’s….

(Chorus:)

The karma’s gonna come on down.

The karma’s gonna come on down (real soon).

Do unto others what you want done to you,

Cause the karma’s gonna come on down.  Oh, yeah.

 

Women rise up for reproductive freedom.

Women rise up for equal pay.

Women rise up, respect is how to treat ’em, and the karma’s…

Affordable care, cause the people want doctors.

Affordable care means life or death.

Affordable care, instead of makin’ profit, and the karma’s….

(Chorus:)

The karma’s gonna come on down.

The karma’s gonna come on down real soon.

Do unto others what you want done to you,

Cause the karma’s gonna come on down.  Oh, yeah.

 

Wall Street bankers, rigging the system.

Wall Street bankers, cookin’ the books.

Wall Street bankers, stealin’ from your sisters, and the karma’s…

Angry old white men, sittin’ in the Congress.

Angry old white men, corporate sharks.

Angry old white men, thinkin’ you can con us,

But the karma’s gonna come on down…

Resist!  Persist!

(Chorus:)

The karma’s gonna come on down.

The karma’s gonna come on down real soon.

Do unto others what you want done to you,

Cause the karma’s gonna come on down.  Oh, yeah.

SheVille Team

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
