Gil Scott-heron - Racetrack In France Lyrics

I heard I needed to travel
"Go out and spread the word" people say
So I'm kickin' up dust and gravel
on a racetrack near Marseilles

If it all sounds like a mystery
things that you just don't understand
let me give you a little bit of history
about me and the Midnight Band:

On a racetrack in France
everybody started clapping their hands
It seemed like a long way from Union Station

On a racetrack in France
everybody started to dance
I was a long way from home but those were good vibrations

Me and the bothers no parlez-vous
French was way down on my list
(But) the Africans said "Merci beaucoup!"
'cause the rhythm's what they missed

The people got the message
from the music that we play
It really shouldn't a been no surprise
that we all got down that day:

On a racetrack in France
everybody got to clapping their hands
It seemed like a long way from Union Station

On a racetrack in France
Everybody started to dance
I was a long way from home but those were good vibrations
