Lyrics:
Bra [Live version (a)]:

Time has been lost in trying
We have been left outside
Looking at passions dying
Emotions grow strong all the time
But it's alright we can still go on
But it's alright we can still go on
But it's alright we can still go on
But it's alright we can still go on

They might have said we're lying
No matter how hard we try
Those that are watch them crying
So ?? as the helpless die
But it's alright we can still go on
But it's alright we can still go on
But it's alright we can still go on
But it's alright we can still go on

Time has been lost in trying
We have been left outside
Looking at passions dying
Emotions grow stronger all the time
But it's alright we can still go on
But it's alright we can still go on
But it's alright we can still go on
But it's alright we can still go on

Alright still go on!
Alright still go on!
Alright still go on!
 
The Song:

Beck joined the band Ozomatli in performing at the ALMA awards. The show was televised. This is the song they sang. It's pretty funky and cool.

The song itself was originally by the band Cymande, a foul sunk group from the 70s.
 
Live:

Played live 4 times:
Earliest known live version: April 16, 2000
Latest known live version: May 6, 2000

Beck played "Bra" a few times prior to the award show, with his own band on the Vultures tours.

We had previously noted a song we called "The Boogaloo," which was played 3 times in one week. It always led off "The New Pollution." Listening to one of them though, I realized it was actually a short version of "Bra." So... out with "Boogaloo" and in with "Bra." :)
