JOHNNY WAS

Woman hold her head and cry
Cause her son had been
Shot down in the street
And died
From a stray bullet

Woman hold her head and cry
Explaining to her was a passerby
Who saw the woman cry
Wondering how can she work it out,
Now she knows that the wages of sin is death
Gift of JAH is life
She cried...
Johnny was a goodman
Never did a thing wrong
(repeat)

Woman hold her head and cry
Cause her son had been
Shot down in the street
And died
Just because of the system

Woman hold her head and cry
Comforting her was a passerby
She complained, then she cry
Johnny was a goodman
Never did a thing wrong
(repeat)

Can a woman tender care
She cried...
Cease towards the child she bear
(repeat)

You think it's the end
But it's just the beginning

Go down back-biter, down back-bite, down back-biter (repeat)
They stab you in the back
And they claim you're not looking
But JAH have them in the region
In the valley of decision
In the valley of decision

Go down back-biter, down back-bite, down back-biter (repeat)

Now you get, want you more
Do you want more

WHO THE CAP FIT

Man to man is so unjust, children
You don't know who to trust
Your worst enemy could be your best friend
And your best friend your worst enemy

Some will eat and drink with you
Then behind them su-su 'pon you
Only your friend know your secrets
So only he could reveal it
And who the cap fit, let them wear it (repeat)
Said I throw me corn, me no call no fowl
I saying, "Cok-cok-cok, cluck-cluck-cluck"

Some will hate you, pretend they love you now
Then behind they try to eliminate you
But who JAH bless, no one curse
Thank God we're past the worse

Hypocrites and parasites
Will come up and take a bite
And if your night should turn to day
A lot of people would run away
And who the cap fit let them wear it (repeat)

And then a gonna throw me corn
And then a gonna call no fowl
And then a gonna "Cok-cok-cok, cluck-cluck-cluck"

Some will eat and drink with you
And then behind them su-su 'pon you
And if your night should turn to day
A lot of people will run away
Who the cap fit, let them wear it (repeat)
Throw me corn, me no call no fowl
I saying "Cok-cok-cok, cluck-cluck-cluck"

NIGHT SHIFT

The sun shall not smite I by day,
Nor the moon by night
And everything that I do
Shall be upfull and right
And if it's all night
It got to be alright (repeat)

Your Mamma won't lose this one
You're the lucky one, under the sun
If you make me move
Then you know you got the groove
All night, it's alrigth
All night yeah! It's alright

Working on the forklift,
In the night shift
Working on the night shift,
With the forklift, from A.M. to P.M.
Working on a night shift yeah!
Well if it's all night

Warehouse, you're empty yeah!
Right around the corner
Bring your goods
Go around the other corner
Bring your suitcases
By the sweat of my brow
Eat your bread (repeat)

All night, alright (repeat)

WAR

What life has taught me
I would like to share with
Those who want to learn...

Until the philosophy which hold one race
Superior and another inferior
Is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned
Everywhere is war, me say war

That until there are no longer first class
And second class citizens of any nation
Until the colour of a man's skin
Is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes
Me say war

That until the basic human rights are equally
Guaranteed to all, without regard to race
Dis a war

That until that day
The dream of lasting peace, world citizenship
Rule of international morality
Will remain in but a fleeting illusion
To be persued, but never attained
Now everywhere is war, war

And until the ignoble and unhappy regimes
that hold our brothers in Angola, in Mozambique,
South Africa sub-human bondage
Have been toppled, utterly destroyed
Well, everywhere is war, me say war

War in the east, war in the west
War up north, war down south
War, war, rumours of war

And until that day, the African continent
Will not know peace, we Africans will fight
We find it necessary and we know we shall win
As we are confident in the victory

Of good over evil, good over evil, good over evil
Good over evil, good over evil, good over evil

RAT RACE

Ah! Ya too rude
Oh what a rat race
Oh what a rat race
This is the rat race

Some a lawful, some a bastard, some a jacket
Oh what a rat race, rat race

Some a gorgan, some a hooligan, some a guine-gog
In this rat race, yeah!
Rat race
I'm singing
When the cats away
The mice will play
Political voilence fill ya city
Yea-ah!
Don't involve Rasta in your say say
Rasta don't work for no C.I.A.
Rat race, rat race, rat race
When you think is peace and safety
A sudden destruction
Collective security for surety
Yeah!

Don't forget your history
Know your destiny
In the abundance of water
The fool is thirsty
Rat race, rat race, rat race

Oh it's a disgrace to see the
Human-race in a rat race, rat race
You got the horse race
You got the dog race
You got the human-race
But this is a rat race, rat race
