Cliff, Jimmy - Sufferin' In The Land Lyrics




Da-da-dai-dai, da-da-dai, da-da-dai ....
Suffering in the land

It is plain to see we're in a terrible situation
Sufferin' in the land
Nearly half of the world on the verge of starvation
Sufferin' in the land
And the children are crying for more education
Sufferin' in the land
Let's singin'

Da-da-dai-dai ....
Suffering in the land

The rich get richer and the poor get poorer
Sufferin' in the land
Everything's gettin' higher and the time gettin' tougher
Sufferin' in the land
They're making guns and bombs to set the world on fire
Sufferin' in the land
I'm singin'

Da-da-dai-dai ....
Suffering in the land, Lord
Da-da-dai-dai ....
Suffering in the land

    Jimmy Cliff's songs & writings clearly speaks about what's happening in the world. Though this song was written so many years ago, It still speaks about the current sufferings in the world today. "One voice many  experience."

    Theo Nwaigbo

    True. There's global recession especially in third world countries due to corruption

    So true. They always have and always will.

  37. Lester Morin
