"New Day"

We're gonna take y'all back now
Come on, I like the way this is going down
Ladies and gents, yo I'mma do this for the kids
Check it out, here we go, yo

We don't need no education
Says a young man sitting in class
School is out 3 o'clock on the dot
Beef with some thugs, he got shot
Turn on your television
Martin Luther King just had a dream
Take this dream and apply it to your life
Shorty selling crack says I'm talking jive
To all my refugees, enough respect
To all my juveniles, enough respect
To all my war children, enough respect
Now Bono won't you sing the hook, come on

Keep your head up 'cause a new day's gonna come
Every country got a ghetto, come on
And look towards the sun
Some got the darkness all around

Everybody sing this part right here

Mama, mama, you know you raised me
With no father figure
I wanna take this time to thank you
For giving me life, alright
Mama, mama, you know you raised me
With no father figure
Him taken by machine gun trigger
After giving me life

Yo, yo turn the page ready the news today
People getting fired, some getting wild
Looting on the streets cause the dogs gotta eat
By any means necessary
Turning over the hour glass
Gotta get it straight before it's too late
'Cause I don't wanna be behind that gate
Now everybody sing the hook, c'mon

Keep your head up 'cause a new day's gonna come
For the new millennium
And look towards the sun
Some got the darkness all around

Everybody sing this part right here
Mama, mama, you know you raised me
With no father figure
I wanna take this time to thank you
For giving me life
People in the back, if you ain't too whack, c'mon
Alright mama, mama, you know you raised me
With no father figure
Him taken by machine gun trigger
After giving me life

My people in the front, everybody in the bunk
Hey yo, clap your hands to the beat, c'mon and just
Make money money make money money money
Hey yo, clap your hands to the beat, c'mon and just
Take money money take money money money
Hey yo raise the roof up in the air, come on
And just raise the roof for all my people trying to eat
Stomp your feet on the floor come on and just stomp
Stomp, stomp, stomp
Introducing Bono, straight out of Dublin

Midnight, she's on the street
She can't sleep, she's afraid to dream
Ten years old, my Spanish rose
You see things you never should have seen
Midnight, she's on the street
She can't sleep, she's afraid to dream
Ten years old, my Spanish rose
You see things you never should have seen

Let me do the guitar solo right here
I want all you kids to stand right now
Come on let me hear y'all

Keep your head up 'cause a new day's gonna come
And look towards the sun
Some got the darkness all around

All my broke people sing this part right here
Mama, mama, you know you raised me
With no father figure
I wanna take this time to thank you
For giving me life
Alright mama, mama, you know you raised me
With no father figure
Him taken by machine gun trigger
After giving me life

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Wyclef and Bono
Jerry Wonder in the back
I let the DJ cut the wax
Y'all need to stop it with the violence
True Refugee combination
Dublin, Brooklyn, New Jersey, ya hear
Trying to find a new day

(This song, performed by Bono and Wyclef Jean, can be found on the New Day single)
