(Don’t Worry) If There’s a Hell Below, We’re All Going to Go

Curtis Mayfield

(Crowd chattering)
Woman: Last night, I was so depressed and I picked up my bible and turned to the book of Revelations.
And if people would just get…pick up the Bible and read it, they would really turn around and straighten up.
This is all we need to do is just get the Good Book and read it and put it to everyday life.

Curtis: Sisters, Niggers, Whiteys, Jews, Crackers, don’t worry.
If there’s hell below, we’re all gonna go!
Aaaaaaaaaaah! (Woman screaming)

Sisters, Brothers and the Whiteys,
Blacks and the Crackers,
Police and their backers.
They’re all political actors.

Hurry.
People running from their worry
While the judge and his juries dictate the law that’s partly flawed.
Cat calling, love balling, fussing and a-cussing.
Top billing now is killing.
For peace no one is willing.
Kinda make you get the feeling.

Everybody smoke,
Use the pill and the dope.
Educated fools from uneducated schools.
Pimping people is the rule.
Polluted water in the pool.
And Nixon talking ‚bout don’t worry.
He said don’t worry.
He said don’t worry.
He said don’t worry.

But they don’t know there could be no show.
And if there’s hell below, we’re all gonna go.

Everybody praying and everybody’s saying,
But when comes time to do, everybody’s laying

Just talking ‚bout don’t worry.
They said don’t worry.
They said don’t worry.
They said don’t worry.

Sisters, Brothers and the Whiteys,
Blacks and the Crackers,
Police and their backers.
They’re all political actors.

Smoke,
The pill and the dope.
Educated fools from uneducated schools.
Pimping people is the rule.
Polluted water in the pool.

And everybody’s saying don’t worry.
They said don’t worry.
They said don’t worry.
They said don’t worry.

But they don’t know there could be no show.
And if there’s hell below, we’re all gonna go.

Lord, what we gonna do.
Tell me what we’re gonna do
If everything I say is true.
This ain’t no way it oughta be,
If only all the mass could see

But they keep talking about don’t worry.
They said don’t worry.
They said don’t worry.
They said don’t worry.
