Slave {repeat}
Ooh yeah, slave
Yeah oh, slave
Yeah
Ooh yeah, oh

Slave 2 the system, here b4 I was born
Slave 2 the master, workin' me till I'm worn
The only penthouse I can count on is a big black ball and chain
Slave 2 the system, the future's all arranged
Oh, U better fetch that water, boy
Oh, U better fetch that water, boy

Slave
Slave 2 the system
Slave

Thompson's my last name, but my daddy's name is Lloyd
The farther back I trace it, the more it becomes null and void
All my life I struggled just 2 b called a boy
Slave 2 the system, oh what a joy
Oh, U better fetch that water, boy
Hell if I do
Oh yeah, oh (Oh, U better fetch that water, boy)

I'm just a slave 2 the system
Here b4 I was born
Slave 2 the master, workin' me till I'm worn

Slave
Slave 2 the system
Hey
Slave {repeat}
