"Assassination is the act of anyone man: anyone man can assassinate a leader but only the people can make a revolution."
I know prime ministers, priests and choirboys carrying the tune will sing tonight
I know some will toast
Surely international puppets will perform
Alexander Bell will be proud tonight
Yes! Many will communicate long distant messages of joy, of relief
But Maurice I felt your presence
I felt your honest and total dedication
Maurice I believe
I don't fear what they say
I understand your words
No Maurice you are blameless
For you fought the devil bravely but you had to face the deep blue sea
Maurice my children will know
You, a true leader
You are purposeful leader
Maurice you are
Comrade, brother, they will reflect
One day they will see
One day too soon they will pay; Oh yes!
You, Walter, Steve and others still to come
You will all be rightly honored and revenged
Every man has his time and you are a man
Maurice the revolution has only just begun
I love you Maurice
I believe you
Sleep confident tonight
Rest assured tonight Maurice
I will love on.
