You know what I tink?
you want to hear what I have to say?
I think you in trouble.
everyday I see you pass
but you nuh reach nowhere.
I think I do more
in a one hour
than you do in a year!
everyday you dress up nice nice,
the frown line dem inna your face multiply and get deeper.
you catch a little cold
and you start to worry and fret.
You not strong enough,
your mind and body weak.
Look at me!
I eat any and every thing,
go everywhere and do everything and never sick a day.
So you think you free.
When last you do what you really want to do?
When last you say what is on your mind?
So how comes you cannot live without so many things you going to dead leave.
You see I wake up any hours and a so my day start.
I don't owe no one nothing.
I answer to no man
But even when you get old
you still a go tie up.
you still a go try to be free.
it look like you might have to be mad,
to really make it in this life.
