Eddy Grant

Down in the street there is violence 
And a lots of work to be done 
No place to hang out our washing 
And I can't blame all on the sun 
We gonna rock down to Electric Avenue 
And then we'll take it higher 
(The Co-operative Republic of Guyana achieved independence on this date in 1966.  Eddy Grant was born in Plaisance, Guyana, in 1948, but had moved with his family to London long before 1966.)
