Jamiroquai - When You Gonna Learn

Emergency on Planet Earth (1992)





“When You Gonna Learn” —en español: ¿Cuando vas a aprender?— es el primer sencillo de la banda británica Jamiroquai grabada en 1989 cuando la banda recién se formaba, la canción dio a luz en 1993 con su primer disco, Emergency on Planet Earth. La letra de la canción hace pensar la situación que vivía, y sigue viviendo el planeta.


Letra:


Yeah yeah, have you heard the news today?
People right across the world are pledging they will play the game
Victims of a modern world, circumstance has brought us here
Armageddon's come too near, too too near, yeah

Now foresight is the only key to save our children's destiny
The consequences are so grave, so so grave
Now, the hypocrites, we are their slaves
So my friend to stop the end on each other we depend, oh we depend

Mountain high and river deep
Stop it going on
We gotta wake this world up from its sleep
Oh, people, stop it going on

Yeah yeah, have you heard the news today?
Money's on the menu in my favorite restaurant
Well, don't talk about quantity 'cause there's no fish left in the sea
Greedy men been killing all the life there ever was

And you better play it nature's way or she will take it all away
And don't try tell me you know more than her about right or wrong
Oh, you've upset the balance man, done the only thing you can
Now my life is in your hands

Mountain high and river deep, oh yeah
We gotta stop it going on
We gotta wake this world up from its sleep
Oh people, stop it going on

Mountain high and river deep, yeah
We gotta stop it going on
We gotta wake this world up from its sleep
Oh people, stop it going on

Greedy men will fade away, yeah they
Well, we stop it going on
I know it's got to be that way
Oh people stop it going on

I'm asking, oh when you gonna learn
To stop it going on?
Now when you gonna learn
To stop it going on?

Now when you gonna learn
To stop it going on?
Oh, when you gonna learn
To stop it going on?
