Takin' It to the Streets Lyrics
anonymous Dec 23rd 2020 report
Pseudo-benevolence in a classicist society. As described to a patrician by a plebeian who has risen from the ranks, hands on charity is more humane than anonymous contributions, as we are all brothers.
Michael McDonald joined the Doobie Brothers band after Tom Johnston fell ill to give just a little more soul to the band and to the people to take it to the streets to spread the good word around with the smoke of the doobies without using any violence during the racial tensions that divided us on the streets of America. Also in the hope to bring love and peace in other parts of the world like places in Palestine aka Israel that the people there at one time known and treated each other as brothers, even though from a different mother with kindness and respect that also could relate to this song by it's words. ''You don't know me but I'am your brother'' ''I was raised here in this living hell'' ''You don't know my kind in your world'' Fairly soon the time will tell'' ''Takin' it to the streets'' ''Take this message to my brother'' ''You will find him every where'' ''Wherever people live together'' Tied in poverty's despair'' Takin' it to the streets''
