The Isley Brothers – Fight The Power



Time is truly wastin’
There’s no guarantee
Smile’s in the makin’
You gotta fight the powers that be
Got so many forces
Stayin’ on the scene
Givin’ up all around me
Faces full a’ pain
I try to play my music
They say my music’s too loud
I tried talkin’ about it
I got the big run around
And when I rolled with the punches
I got knocked on the ground
By all this bullshit going down
Time is truly wastin’
There’s no guarantee
Smile’s in the makin’
You gotta fight the powers that be
I don’t understand it
People wanna see
Those that got the answers
Red tape in the way
I could take you in easy
That’s just half the fun, oh boy
Seeking satisfaction
Keeps me on the run
I try to play my music
They say my music’s too loud
I tried talkin’ about it
I got the big run around
And when I rolled with the punches
I got knocked on the ground
But all this bullshit going down
Time is truly wastin’
There’s no guarantee
Smile’s in the makin’
You gotta fight the powers that be
Got it baby
If you and I can
We got the power
Fight it, got the power
Fight it, baby, baby
Fight it, fight the power
Fight it, got the power
Fight it, got the power
Fight it, got the power

  1. Hey Angel… good post. I remember doing the bump to that song. Didn’t know what the words were. Looks like they were before the times. Yeah Daniel would have definitely commented on the lyrics for sure.

    Miss you Digger.

    1. LOL ­čÖé ­čśë Me, too. Never really listened to the lyrics.
      Yup, those old songs were telling us something. We just weren’t listening.
      Digger is still with us ­čśë He nagged me for 2 days to post this piece. I decided to send it as Friday night Party music, a bit of “Funk” to shake things up. LOL ­čÖé
      We will Keep the Faith, and Fight TPTB. ­čÖé
