Asian Dub Foundation — New Way, New Life lyrics

Written by: das, pandit, savale, tailor, zaman

Every sunday morning in front of the tv
Recording with a microphone naya zindagi
Pioneer gurdas maan
Nusrat fateh ali khan
Kept our parents alive
Gave them the will to survive
Working inna de factories
Sometimes sweeping de floor
Unsung heroines an heroes
Yes they open de door
They came a long time ago
But now it seems we've arrived
Naya zindagi! Naya jeevan
New way new life

Stayed an we fought an now de future's open wide
New way new life
Naya zindagi! Naya zindagi!
New way new life
Naya zindagi! Naya jeevan

Tjinder pon de radio
This is england's new voice
Censorship for years
But now dem have no choice
Running thru de playground
We could never have known
Dat in de future
Our role models would be home grown
And now we're walking down de street
Wid a brand new pride
A spring inna de step
Wid our heads held high
Young asian brothers an sisters
Moving forward, side by side
Naya zindagi! Naya jeevan
New way new life

Our opportunity will no longer be denied
New way new life
Naya zindagi! Naya jeevan

And we're supposed to be cool
Inna de dance our riddims rule
But we knew it all along
Cos our parents made us strong
Never abandoned our culture
Just been moving it along
Technology our tradition
Innovation inna the song
Now de struggle continues
To reverse every wrong
New heroines and heroes
Inna de battle we belong
When we reach de glass ceiling
We will blow it sky high
Naya zindagi! Naya jeevan
New way new life

Stayed an we fought an now de future's open wide
New way new life
Naya zindagi! Naya zindagi!
New way new life
Naya zindagi! Naya jeevan
