Timor Lyrics

by Shakira

Timor, Timor
Yale, Yale
East Timor, Timor
Timor, Timor
Timor, Timor

Going on and on and on and on
This is going on and on and on and on now
Said it once and said it twice
I want to save your time
Safety, safety

It's alright, it's alright
'Cause the system never fails
The good guys are in power and the bad guys are in jail

It's alright, it's alright
Just as long as we can vote
We live in a democracy and that's what we promote

Isn't it? Isn't it?
Oooh
Isn't it? Isn't it?
Oooh

It's alright, it's alright
If the news say half the truth
Hearing what we want is the secret of eternal youth

It's alright, it's alright,
If the planet splits in three
'Cause I'll keep on selling records and you've got your MTV

If we forget about them, don't worry
If they forget about us, then hurry
How about a people who don't matter anymore?

East Timor
Timor, Timor
Ooh
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah

It's alright, it's alright
They don't show it all on TV
So we won't really know it just by watching *BC

It's alright, it's alright
For our flag, we die or kill
As long as we don't know we do it just to pay the bills

If we forget about them, don't worry
If they forget about us, then hurry
How about a people who don't matter anymore?

If we forget about them, don't worry
If they forget about us, then hurry
How about a people who don't matter anymore?

East Timor
Timor, Timor

So let's keep tanning while its sunny
They'll risk our hides to make their money
Now don't you find that funny?

If we forget about them, don't worry
If they forget about us, then hurry
How about a people who don't matter anymore?

If we forget about them, don't worry
If they forget about us, then hurry
How about a people who don't matter anymore?

East Timor
Timor, Timor

East Timor
Timor, Timor

East Timor
