DIS CRAZY WORLD -------- [RA audio] --------

I used to put my tv on or listen to the radio.
I even read the daily news and I chat with neighbourhood,
Bur you know the news, they never change, Oh Jah!
What's going on? My Lord. This world is crazy.

It's so crazy, it's so crazy, so crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy...
This world is crazy.

Political scandals and another new war.
Economical crisis, then deseases and hunger
and every day there is race trouble
all over the world religeous confrontation.

It's so crazy, it's so crazy, so crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy...
This world is crazy.

Dem seh me dat there is equality,
but majority say dem no see it ...
Down this world life is not easy, you see ...
This world is a pity.
Dem say me dat bellies are full
while hunger kills in the neighbourhood.
Man, don't treat me as if I'm a fool,
'cause I know all your rules and tools
Dem say me there is freedom.
Politcal jails is not freedom.
Most of those in them prisons
are not really the ones who have done wrong
And sometimes I sit in a me corner and I meditate about this world,
disia world where people only fight for beeng number-a-one.
But ina up-to-date world don't forget our Thirld World,
where dem still copper and gold to feed dem economical fuss.
The economical fuss is the political fuss,
man dem political fuss brings all the pains I can't stand at all.

It's so crazy, it's so crazy, so crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy...
This world is crazy.

DEM A LAUGH

Dem a laugh laugh laugh
We shall laugh last
Dem a laugh laugh laugh
We shall laugh best.

The baldhead man get tipsy
And then start to laugh kia-kia-kia
Take his dreams for reality, hell for heaven.

Natty dread glance on him
And then shake him head cause he knows:
If you laugh in illusion,
Man, you go cry soon.

CHORUS:

There is time to laugh
And time to moan, mon u got to know.
Before you start to laugh
Be sure u wont cry the next minute.

There is time to laugh
And time to moan, man u got to know
Before you start to laugh
Be sure u wont cry the next second

The baldhead man drink champagne
And then start to laugh kia-kia-kia ...
Take his dreams for reality, hell for heaven.
Oh, my Lord!

Natty dread glance on him
And then shake him head cause he knows:
If you laugh in illusion
Man you go cry soon.

NOT A HOLOCAUST RANGER

While the children are sucking
The milkless bossom of their
Hungry mothers,
Some wicked leaders
Dream missiles
For their legalized murders.

While the poor peasants
Are digging the dry grounds
Of their fields,
Unhuman warriors are rushing
To the battle fields

And they appear with their findish weapons
As if their were coming from the hell
To invade the world
And terrorize the human race

But I tell them
Hey mister Gunmen
Dont bring me: fire!
Hey you war mongers,
I dont need your weapons 'cause

Im not a holocaust ranger,
Not a holocaust ranger,
. You got to know it,
But Im a peaceful freedom fighter.

Im not a holocaust ranger,
Not a holocaust ranger,
You got to know it,
But Im a peaceful freedom fighter.

Let me tell you,
Youre not clean
Using your hands
To kill the harmless man.
Children are running away
'Cause they are afraid
And the hole world say
You are wicked and bad.

Cease fire, youd better cease it!
Cease fire, brother cease it!
Please, cease fire and make we
Have some fun!

Yes I know what is in your brain:
Only star war is your game
And burning towns is your aim,
But throw away your guns
And make we have some fun!

Remember world war one and war two
Forget not the people dead by million.
You got to know that a world war three
Should be the total destruction.
So throw away your guns
And make we have some fun

CHORUS:

You bombing here,
You bombing there,
Tell me where the children gonna play?

You shooting this,
You shooting that,
Man, you shoot your own brother!

Whether youre wrong,
Whether youre right,
War cannot be a solution.

Whether you win,
Whether you loose,
Man, you gonna regret one day
So throw away your guns!

Yes I know what is in your brain:
Only star war is your game
And burning towns is your aim,
But throw away your guns
And make we have some fun!

WANTED IN BABYLON -------- [RA audio]

Chorus:

Im wanted.
Misled and stranded.
Im wanted
In a Babylon

Im wanted
Misled and stranded
Im wanted
In a Babylon

Im peaceful rastaman
In a babilan
Life aint easy for I
In a disia land
Anywhere I go
Anything I do
I got to be careful
For survival

Im like a prisoner
Who escape
Now trying to find a play
To hide cause
In a Babylon big wickedness
They fight Jah children
Day and night

CHORUS

Walking dung the street
Mi got to behave like a cat
Glance left and right
Avoid greedy dog
Again and again

When mi want fi rest
No place for I
Cause for anything wrong
Dem accuse Jah Jah children

They release the gulties
Killers are ina the street
Police come and take the dread
And say him a under arrest
Just fe ganjah

CHORUS

Mi usualy get confused
When I get the daily news
Gun shot in a church
And a bomb found ina a school

Im peaceful rastaman
In a Babylon
Life aint easy for I
In a disia land
Anywhere I go
Anything I do
I got to be careful
For survival

Im like a prisoner
Who escape
Now trying to find a place
To hide cause
In a Babylon big wickedness
They fight Jah children
Day and night.
