Turn it up, turn it up (4x) Music In the streets can i get some block rockin’ beats when i’m lonesome shuffling my feet as i’m walking music in the streets instead of listen to them talkin Music in the Streets Is this insanity? Or just something sweet In the middle of calamity Can I have a treat? I’ve been a good boy Music in the streets Something for my soul to enjoy (John) Every day it seems to get a little bit harder In every way anything you say can get you in hot water Better just to not say anything to anyone Keep your head down and hope they turn the speakers on Life can be a jungle when you’re living wild style Are you the lion or the monkey or the elephant child? We all end up at the watering hole And listen to the birds sing out the song of our soul Music in the Streets Is this insanity? Or just something sweet In the middle of calamity Can I have a treat? I’ve been a good boy Music in the streets Something for my soul to enjoy Music In the streets can i get some block rockin’ beats when i’m lonesome shuffling my feet as i’m walking music in the streets instead of listen to them talkin (Leesa) Sometimes I listen to that little voice inside of me Telling me all kinds of, all kinds of crazy Too much in my own head need something from the outside To accompany my reckless joyride Drop the needle DJ cause I gotta get my fix The little voice inside of me is up to her old tricks We need a little something with a groove and a backbeat I’m jaywalking while you’re sitting in the backseat Come on come on Make it a little louder Come on come on Make me lose control Come on Come on Give it your best shot Give us music if you won’t fill the potholes Music In the streets can i get some block rockin’ beats when i’m lonesome shuffling my feet as i’m walking music in the streets instead of listen to them talkin Music in the Streets Is this insanity? In the middle of calamity Can I have a treat? I’ve been a good boy Music in the streets Something for my soul to enjoy (Mello G) Yo! Turn up the beat Turn up the beat me say turn up the treble Turn the bass make me move my waist Turn up the treble, burstin my bubble From the east to the west to the north to the south This the music that I’m talkin about White man black man syrian indian Music from every nation Music in the Streets Is this insanity? Or just something sweet In the middle of calamity Can I have a treat? I’ve been a good boy Music in the streets Something for my soul to enjoy Music In the streets can i get some block rockin’ beats when i’m lonesome shuffling my feet as i’m walking music in the streets instead of listen to them talkin

The girl next door Sews and sews Sews and sews The girl next to me Knows and knows Knows and knows That girl right there Stepping out for a smoke Oh how I care And that’s no joke You came from so far away And just after me You put out a lovely display And all came to see You bring joy to the street The whole neighbourhood You are just so sweet How I would if you would The girl next door Sews and sews Sews and sews The girl next to me Knows and knows Knows and knows That girl right there Stepping out for a smoke Oh how I care And that’s no joke And you’re not alone Your little doggo Blue No matter where you roam She’s right next to you She says hello to Humbert WIth a boop on the snout I got your number But I won’t ask you out Your eyes, your smile, your face your hair, your legs, your hips We may not be the best of friends But you’re my best relationship Taking the sunshine and sweet nicotine For a moment you are mine You’re an awesome jellybean I would so love to merge our bloodlines The girl next door Sews and sews Sews and sews The girl next to me Knows and knows Knows and knows That girl right there Stepping out for a smoke Oh how I care And that’s no joke

better be ready cause it’s happening better be steady gonna be a reckoning Time hard Get out the yard Hit the streets Feel the beat feel the beat Rise up Wise yourself up Join hands And strike up the band Stand up for what you believe in Stand up for what is true Rise up and and fight the powers That make it their mission to exploit you Stand up for those who have fallen Stand up for those who have lost No matter what the consequence No matter what the cost

Politician 02:18
Politician law magician Your pen's a magic wand Write your scroll You're on a roll But is your word your bond? Politician on a mission Power hungry whore Buy your votes By changing coats And knocking door to door Politician rage ignition It's you who fans the fire Indignation Soul castration Silver tongued liar Politician our perdition I didn't say it first The only ones Who want the job Are the very worst. Politician: new condition If you want to lead Take a vow Of poverty And do the job for free

Gratitude gratitude Got to have a great attitude attitude Across every latitude latitude

Just a couple of days now Is all I have to wait Just some minutes and some hours Time that I can appreciate Just a couple of days now Time that I will spend Looking forward to the day when Our time apart will end Free time When you will be mine Free days Let’s go away Free love Sent from heaven above Free hearts Soon our time will start True hearts Won’t be torn apart True minds Are one of a kind True love Fits like a glove True souls Won’t be controlled

Nobody Knows 04:21
Nobody knows when The trouble will come Nobody knows when Things come undone Nobody knows who Will rise up and fight Nobody knows when We will see the light Despicable tyrant At the top of the fray Open the hydrant And wash him away Angry despot Dividing the land This nation a cesspit Let’s strike up the band Our souls Won’t be controlled Our hearts Make love our art As one It will be done All one United strong Human extinction Is on the horizon We have the distinction Of not being wizened Bad sufferation As the money is hoarded No education And you won’t be rewarded Free time Free your mind Free fly Reach to the sky All men Stand firm Stand your ground Save the world

I Don't Care 02:50
I don’t care about The money you make I don’t care about The chances you take I don’t care about The path you choose I don’t care about The names in the news What matters the most Is being your host Having your company Having you here with me I don’t care at all About your past I don’t give a damn Who you hurt last I don’t care about What’s none of my business I don’t care about Your isn’t or isness What matters to me Is us here and now Standing together If you will allow You see the only thing that matters Is the moment we’re living Not the past nor the future time Only what we’re now giving When you’re close enough to hold tight I’m right where I want to be When you’re in my arms at night That’s all that matters to me

No more sleeping On the job No more nodding off Do you wanna get robbed? No more crying Out for mom No more sleeping On the job Night time night time Is the right time For all kinds of trouble man Stay up Stay up From night til day up I hate to burst your bubble man Mission ignition It’s all gone fission Be on high alert Direction correction The selection It’s time to save the earth One time fate Twice coincidence Three times enemy action It’s not too late For your defence Just better have some traction Walls mean nothing Nor do locks The last defender is you Mind your conscience And your soul Don’t let the enemy through So many before us Have fallen at their feet History has lead us here Will we see defeat They always keep on coming Trying to control But we will always fight for The right to be free souls

ONLY JAH by Mello G Only Jah can make it happen Got to depend on him Only Jah can make it happen Got to leave it up to him Say you gotta be wise The devil are coming in disguise Comin’ to trick you To use and abuse you, well And I refuse you well And try to confuse you but Don’t let them catch hold you Sometimes you think that You can do it All by yourself hey You doesn’t need Someone else but Even though Jah give you the strength and Motivation To carry on Through the raging storm Jah Jah keep me going on and on I keep holding on I will go on and on Until the dust of dawn I keep on holding on I keep holding strong Say you don’t know We need Jah in our life And without him We just can’t survive I need Jah Jah loving at the morning Inna de dust In the dawning Him a me food any time me yawning Wake me up at night and in the early morning
