Sister Double Happiness – Hey Kids

Hey kids in school
I’m talking to the ones whose light’s been covered
Having to play by the rules
That some old man a thousand years ago discovered
Oh boy, but I wonder why
Why they’re messing with you
In the very same way they messed with me
A long long time ago

Hey Mr. Businessman
I see you every day in your pinstripe running
You never did understand that
When all those lies inside start burning
Oh boy you’re gonna wonder why
Why you waited so long
To make the love you need
‘Cause it should have been done
A long long time ago

Oh, in these days when my freedom is up for discussion
And you hold my future in your hands
Some private moment from your past
Might come back at you brother
And then the truth like poison
Will be handed to you gently
Or else thrown in your face

Hey friend of mine
I know you’re sick
But with love you can recover
Oh, I wanna take you in my arms
And I’ll yell out loud that I love you like a brother
Oh, boy, but I wonder why
Why they’ve waited so long to give you the care you need
‘Cause it should have done
A long time ago
