sonnerie téléphone portable pour Emmet till (fingers malone remix)

Emmett til lemmett till, he was just a child in those hills
Emmett till emmett till, he was just a child in those hills
Had dreams and hopes for the future, as every young boy should, as every young boy should, as every young boy would

Emmett till emmett till, just a boy of 14 years
Emmett till emmett till, cried a lifetime of tears
He'd wake up every morning, to the thrill of each dawn
Had dreams and hopes for the future, as every young boy should, as every young boy should, as every young boy would

In the summer of 55', mamie till told her only son, 'segregations over, but you take care my precious one'
Went to visit his family, out near the tallahatchie bridge
Had dreams and hopes for the future, as every young boy should,
Had dreams and hopes for the future, as every young boy would

He was just a young boy, he stood tall in his own skin
The preacher said the boy he stood tall like a man
Emmett lost his life, in the name of hate
You know the penalty varies, from race to race
They(the killers) live a dark life, behind the farce of the law
That protects weak men that took the life of a child
Men with no heart, men with no soul, not a thread of remorse,no not a thread of remorse

What evils been done, can never be taken away
A crime that grows even more hideous each day
As the story's retold, more people recoil
A jury set killers free to walk the streets of our world
They're still free to walk the streets of emmett's world.
