warrior, wari-warrior
warrior in woolworths
humble he may seem
behind his serville innocence
he plots and he schemes

[chorus]
he's the rebel on the underground
she's the rebel of the modern town
he's the rebel on the underground
she's the rebel of the modern town
warrior, warrior, wari-warrior

warrior in woolworths
his roots are in today
doesn't know no history
he threw the past away

[chorus]

warrior in woolworths
dips on friday nights
youths meet at stockwell tube
weapons rule their lives

[chorus] x 2

    General CommentIt's about the February 1, 1960 sit in at the Woolworth's in Greensboro, North Carolina and the civil rights movement in general. I believe the "underground" is a reference to the Underground Railroad.
