TIMOR
Music by: Shakira
Lyrics by: Shakira


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?

It's alright, it's alright
If the news says 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 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?
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.

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'd do it just to pay their 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.

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.

Let's keep tanning while it's 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.
