Cheater

Children Of Israel

 



By the look on your face, girl, you're my enemy
By the look on your face, girl, you're my enemy, yeah

Remember that Friday night
When you stole my pants off the line
So please tell me
How you wanna make love to me

Whoah, girl, oh girl
By the look in your eyes, girl, you're a cheater

Children of Israel take heed
And listen to the words of the prophet
The wages of sin is dead now
The gift of Jah is eternal life
The truth is a fact and we all know that
So there's no need to build no strife
While there is life
Against your brothers or sisters
Or your enemies

There is the book of knowledge, yeah
It's there for those who want to learn the truth
Children of Israel keep listening, yeah
They say the other half has not yet been told
Has not yet been told

Come along... and take heed

 

Concentration 

Created By The Father

 


Holy holy, mmmm, holy holy

It started down in the drag to concentrate
And getting a weekly pay instead of begging every day
Father gave us every little thing to make us try
And help ourselves, and he said he'd help those
Who try to help theirselves

So, if you want to be in that situation
Change your evil ways and join this congregation
And maybe you'll soon be living like the king
That sitteth on his throne
If happiness is far away, it will show up some day

Holy holy holy holy

If you want to live that independent life
Go out and do the work instead of being in a fight
Father knows that you're the chosen one
To perform his works
And you'll be repaid in his holy way, in his holy way
Yeah, yeah
In his holy way, holy way, yeah, holy...



Created a man did he... yeah, yeah.
Look at the trees,
How their leaves are blowing away in the sky.
Listen to the birds,
How they're singing away their time.
Look at the sun,
How it shines, bright in the skies.
Well, all these things were...
..created by the Father!

Look at the grass,
How it makes your lawns look pretty.
Look at the flowers,
How they make your gardens look pretty, too.
Even when you're feeling weary,
Sad and low.
All you've got to do is...
Relax and feel the cool rain so. ?

Ooooh yeah yeah.. yeah!
Oh woah yeah.

What a beautiful feeling yeah.
Oooh yeah.

The Creator 

Deliverance Will Come

 



Israelites, stop your fighting!
Stop your fighting! yeah

Over all the living things
Upright and good(?) is Jah Jah

The path of Jah Jah is mercy and truth
To them that fear Him
The path of Jah Jah is mercy and truth
To them that fear Him

To them that fear Him
The path of Jah Jah is mercy and truth
To them that fear Him

For I have seen the land of my Father in my visions
From the hills of captivity's plains

Will some day clear for I this land
For my brothers and my sisters
And my brethren in the yoke of oppression

For the child who only knows of death and destruction

My captivity and bondage all they can see
Emancipation they say will never come
Your destiny is in Babylon
Not in Beulah Land, Beulah Land

Weakened strength by oppression and dread reforms

Deliverance will come inna dis ya time

Little Green Apples

I pray and I am hoping well

Don't you know...
Little girl



And I wake up in the mornin'
With my hair down in my eyes and she says "Hi"
And I stumble to the breakfast table
While the kids are goin' off to school…goodbye
And she reaches out 'n' takes my hand
And squeezes it 'n' says "How ya feelin', hon?"
And I look across at smilin' lips
That warm my heart and see my mornin' sun
And if that's not lovin' me Then all I've got to say
God didn't make little green apples
And it don't rain in Indianapolis in the summertime
And there's no such thing as Doctor Seuss
Or Disneyland, and Mother Goose, no nursery rhyme
God didn't make little green apples
And it don't rain in Indianapolis in the summertime
And when my self is feelin' low
I think about her face aglow and ease my mind
Sometimes I call her up at home knowin' she's busy
And ask her if she could get away and meet me
And maybe we could grab a bite to eat
And she drops what she's doin'
and she hurries down to meet me And I'm always late
But she sits waitin' patiently
and smiles when she first sees me
'cause she's made that way
And if that ain't lovin' me
Then all I've got to say
God didn't make little green apples
And it don't snow in Minneapolis when the winter comes
And there's no such thing as make-believe
Puppy dogs, autumn leaves 'n' BB guns
FADE
God didn't make little green apples
And it don't rain in Indianapolis

Rolling Down

 
 

Come let me rock with you

I want this dance with you yeah

Come let us get this dance

Cause I'm feeling the sweat

Let me know your name and I'll do the same

Tell me what are you hungry for and I'll soothe your mind

Don't make me blue

The more we are together the happier we should be

We go a rocking

Said we go a skankin'




Rolling Down Rolling Down my cheek

Ever since you went away
Every day is just a cloudy day
And I don't know if it's rain from the skies
Or tears from my eyes falling onto my face
And rolling down my cheek

Hurry back and bring the sun out
And let me be
Your one and only one
With just one kiss stop the rain from the skies
Or tears from my eyes falling onto my face
And rlling down my cheek

All I know is I love you and if I live forever
I'll be laughing you're still here
You will always be everything to me

 

Should I

Silver Words

 

 

Should I have faith in you
Should I put my trust in you
And should you let me down
Should I flirt around

Why should I think this way
Thinking that you're going away
There ain't no way we'll stay
Together anymore

Am I to go on now
Living this way
Acting like a child
So young and gay
You don't know
What it means to be loved
You don't know how it feels
To be hugged
Oh no

I've got to tell you this
You're love I've tried to resist
For I just can't go on like this
Pretending each day
You make me feel so mad
You make me feel so sad
Whenever I'm to share your love

Am I to go on now
Living this way
Acting like a child
So young and gay
You don't know
What it means to be loved
You don't know how it feels
To be hugged
Oh no

I won't come down on you
With lightning brimstone or fire
For in my heart
That isn't what I require

My desire is
For you to be true and strong
And then someday you will
Get to know
Where you went wrong

How could I ever go on
Living this way
Acting like a child
So young and gay
You don't know
What it means to be loved
You don't know how it feels
To be loved
Oh no




Baby I'm not joking
And it's not what I'm smoking
I really think you're nice
Don't think I'm kidding you
And don't think I'm bidding
That silver words are you're price

And Oh if you could see
The change you've made in me
That the angels in the skies
Were envious and suprised
That anyone as nice as you
Would chance with me

Baby I'm not joking
And it's not what I'm smoking
I really think you're mine
Don't think I'm kidding
And don't think I'm bidding
These silver words are you're price

And Oh if you could see
The change you've made in me
That the angels in the skies
Were envious and suprised
That anyone as nice as you
Would chance with me

Would chance with me
Chance with me

Smile Like An Angel

So Jah Say

 



Your smile like an angel
just let your smile be bright like a star
and your eyes be bright like a starlight
that peeps out of the sky by night

Do good as you do good to me
before we were a true
and that you'll always love me forever
Y eah as I see you in my dreams

I'll follow you always
right to the end of the world

I'll follow you, I'll follow you all the way
like the rain follows the rainbow

I'll follow you all the way.
Yeah right to the end of the world

Your smile is like an angel...

Oh Yeh
So Jah say
I must not let him down
I must not let him down

'Cause if I do
I'm gonna have to pay
If I do I'm gonna have to pay
So Jah say, no, no, no
No let him down
Let him down
So Jah say
I must not let him down
Let him down
No matter where you run
To for rescue this day
He's gonna find you anyway
So Jah say, no, no, no
No let him down
No let him down

To fear of the Lord
Is to hate evil
Pride and arrogancy, oh
And the evil way
So Jah say
I said the fear of the Lord
Is to hate evil
Pride and arrogancy, oh
And the evil way
So Jah say, no, no, no
No let him down
Let him down

Not one of his seed
Shall sit on the sidewalk and beg bread
There'll never be, there'll never be
Not one of his seed
Shall be a living dead


 

Song My Mother Used To Sing

To The Foundation

 



I remember the song my mother used to sing
Each and every morning
There's the flowers blooming outside
And there aint no love inside
our brothers and sisters lives
So if you cant be good you gotta be carefull
I remeber one rainy day on March
My poor ma , she sent me out to get some starch
I was the only one(that she could depend on)
So I had to shop and cook and clean all day long
Without a father only the one thats deep within
That's why I praise him for his might words,
to teach us day by day oh
I remember the song my mother used to sing
each and every morning
And there aint no love inside
our brothers and sisters lives

Oh the song my mother used to sing



I've got to get myself together
Can't afford to let my faith go, you know
When ever Jah sun comes a shining
and my sisters are all smiling
no one is dying ,my people aren't crying
we are living in the love of the father ,
living in the house of the almighty

ooh yeah ooh yeah
The days of destruction will never be, oh no
Not hard for the wise man who can see
But the fool thinks he knows it all,
sooner or later he stumbles and falls
He goes down for a reason,
Jah keeps giving him a beating
to the foundation they'll have to go down
to the foundation chant them down
to the foundation they'll have to go down
to the foundation , oh ho well
oh ho well

 

Tribulation

What About The Half

 


Rough as the road might seem to be
I'll be toiling on home
I'll be myself and no one
I'll keep trodding on

A man must go through tribulation
no matter who or where he's from
If he's a man of understanding
He deh know that time alone will tell
But fools know not of understanding
That's why they stumble
Never going to their way ,oh yeah
For wisdom is hard for them


 

What about the half that's never been told?
What about the half that's never been told?
Look how long it's been kept a big secret
Look how long it's been hided away
The half, the half, the half that's never been told
What is hidden from the wise and good
It shall reveal to babe and suckling
The half, the half, the half that's never been told
Whoah, the half, whoah

Whoah, what about the half that's never been told?
What about the half that's never been told?
Look how long it's been kept a big secret
Look how long it's been hided away

The half, the half, the half that's never been told
What is hidden from the wise and good
It shall reveal to babe and suckling
The half, the half, the half that's never been told

Whoah, the half that's never been told
What about the half that's never been told?
What about the half that's never been told?
Whoah, what about the half...

I am a lineman for the county,
and I drive the main road,
searching in the sun for another overload.

I hear you singing in the wires.
I can hear you thru the line.
And the Wichita Lineman,
is still on the line.

It's still on the line.

I know I need a small vacation,
but it don't look like rain,
and if it snows, that stretch down south,
will never stand the strain.

Oh girl I need you more than want you,
and I want you for all time,
and the Wichita Lineman
is still on the line

Oh is on the line.

And I need you more than want you,
and I want you for all time,
and the Wichita Lineman,
is still on the line.

Is still on the line.

I said he's on the line.

He's on the line.

Oh that's me still on the line.

Searching for you.

Wolf And Leopards

Why Seek More / Lets Get Together

 



Come along yeah and dig my song

Too much wagonist
Too much antagonist
Wolves and Leopards
are trying to kill the sheep and the shepard

Wolves and Leopards
are trying to kill the sheep and the shepard

Too much informers
Too much talebearers

Time to seperate the sheep from the wolves
We're at the crossroads and this is the time of decision

Too much informers
Too much talebearers

Too much watch and peep
Its time the wolves dem leave the sheep

Wolves and Leopards
are trying to kill the sheep and the shepard

Too much informers
Too much talebearers

Wolves and Leopards
are trying to kill the sheep and the shepard

Too much watch and peep
Its time the wolves dem leave the sheep


 

Let us get together mankind

Let us do the right with all our might

Give a helping hand to the troubled man

Give a helping hand while you can

So if you are rich please help the poor

Why seek more ?

 

Words Of Wisdom

Yagga Yagga  /  You Will Suffer

 



I will open my mouth in a parable
And sing the dark sayings of old
Doth not wisdom and knowledge stretch
Forth her hands, unto you oh
Children I cry

All the words of my mouth
Speak righteousness
All the days of my life will tell
Take heed of the words of Jehovia
Or man you will surely fail

In laughter the heart is sorrowful
Your folly is your reward
Better a dinner of herb
Where love is
Than fasting where there is wrath

All the words of my mouth
Speak righteousness
All the days of my life will tell
Take heed of the words of Jehovia
Or man you will surely fail

Take heed Jah people and live upright
For this is the time that will tell
When the righteous ones shall stand up strong
Oh why did the heathen rage

All the words of my mouth
Speak righteousness
All the days of my life will tell
Take heed of the words of Jehovia
Or man you will surely fail

Live up, live up
Never give up righteousness


 

You will get nowhere

If you don't act fair

You will suffer

All day long

How long will it take to let you know

That three into two won't go?

No, no, no, no...

I don't care about your size

'Cause empty barrels make the most noise.

Do you realize?

So stand up and fight your own fight

With all your might.

You better..

'Cause you will suffer...
