"Caravan Of Love" as written by and Ernest/isley Isley....
Are you ready, are you ready?
Are you ready, are you ready?
Are you ready for the time of your life?
It's time to stand up and fight
It's alright it's alright
Hand in hand we take a caravan to the motherland
One by one we gonna stand up with pride
One that can't be denied
Stand up, stand up
From the highest mountain, valley low
We'll all join together with hearts of gold
Now the children of the world can see
There's a better place for us to be
The place in which we were born
So neglected and torn apart

Every woman every man
Join the caravan of love
(Stand up) stand up
Stand up
Everybody take a stand
Join the caravan of love
(Stand up) stand up
Stand up

I'm your brother
I'm your brother don't you know
She's my sister
She's my sister don't you know

We'll be living in a world of peace
And the day when everyone is free
We'll bring the young and the old
Won't you let your love flow, from your heart

Every woman every man
Join the caravan of love
(Stand up) stand up
Stand up
Everybody take a stand
Join the caravan of love
(Stand up) stand up
Stand up

I'm your brother
I'm your brother don't you know
She's my sister (we're waiting, we're waiting)
She's my sister don't you know (we're waiting, we're waiting for the caravan)

So are you ready? (he's coming)
Are you ready? (he's coming)
Are you ready? (he's coming)
Are you ready? (he's coming on the caravan)
You better get ready (go for it)
You better get ready (go for it)
You better get ready (go for it)
You better get ready

    General CommentYep it is. It's also Paul Heaton and Dave Welch's band before the Beautiful South were formed.

    General CommentThat's Hull for you, dentie!
    First Housemartins song I heard (not surprising given it was their only no.1), got one of their best of's today and it's fantastic! Shame they were so short lived, but they went on to much greater things!

    General CommentThis song is a cover of an Isley Brothers song but the HM version is better, the video really conveys Paul Heatons Cynicism about organised religion when the image is conveyed the clergy as the KKK with a face.

    Thought is was brilliant
