Can’t You See

Can’t you see
What you’re doing to me, girl
I am bound
Won’t you set me free

Told me you loved me
Try to break my heart
Do dirty tricks girl
You gotta be smart
You gotta a heart
That be made of stone
Betcha ya don’t have no flesh and bone

Can’t you see
What you’re doing to me, girl
I am bound
Won’t you set me free

You jerk on my heart
Try ta’ Shatter my brain
If you have conscience
Ain’t that a shame

Told me you loved me
Try to break my heart
Do dirty tricks girl
You gotta be smart

Can’t you see
What you’re doing to me, girl
I am bound
Won’t you set me free

Can’t you see

Told me you loved me
Try to break my heart
Do dirty tricks girl
You gotta be smart

CHORUS

 CAUTION

Wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-wo-wo.
Wo-wo-wo-wo, wo-wo-wo-wo.
Here I am walkin’ down the street (Walkin’, walkin’, walkin’, walkin’,
walkin’, walkin’, walkin’, walkin’, walkin’, walkin’, walkin’,
walkin’)
And the children: everything is so sweet.
(Wo-wo-wo sweet! Wo-wo-wo sweet!)
I’m doin’ my best and I’m doin’ it slow,
But there is just one thing I would like you to know.
Ooh, when you wet, it’s slippery, yeah. Uh!
When it damp, it crampin’!
If it’s slidin’, you’ll tumble down,
Won’t want you on the ground.
Oh-oh-oh! Caution: the road is wet;
Balck soul is black as jet. Did you hear me?
Caution: the road is hot;
Still you got to do better than that!
‘Cause when you wet, it’s slippery, yeah. It’s slippery, yeah!
When it damp, it crampin’! When it damp, it crampin’!
If it slidin’ up and down-a,
Don’t want you on the ground. Brother!
Hit me from the top,
You crazy muthafunkin’!
Hit me from the top,
You crazy muthafunkin’!
Hit me from the top,
Crazy muthafunkin’! Eh!
When you wet, it’s slippery, yeah. Uh!
When it damp, it crampin!
If you slidin’, you’re tumblin’ down,
Don’t want you on the ground! Don’t, don’t!
Caution: the road is wet;
Black soul is black as jet. Black soul!
Caution: the road is hot;
Yeah, you got to do better than that! /fadeout/

Chances Are 

Chances are we’re gonna leave now 
Sorry for the victim now 
Though my days are filled with sorrow 
I see years of bright tommorrow 
Chances, chances are some might not hold out 
Chances are, hang on right now 
Though-oh-oh-oh my-my days are filled with sorrow 
I see years of bright tommorrow 
Chances, chances are some might not hold out 
Chances are, hang on right now 
Chances are, oh chances, you’re my chances 
Chances are, hang on right now 
Chances are, hang on right now 
Deal with loneliness, I’ll take some tear drops 
Chances are we’ll have to win 
Chances are, hang on right now 
Chances are, chances are…

Chant Down Babylon

Come we go burn down Babylon one more time
(Come we go burn down Babylon one more time);
Come we go chant down Babylon one more time
(Come we go chant down Babylon);
For them soft! Yes, them soft! (ah-yoy!)
Them soft! Yes, them soft! (ah-yoy!)
So come we go chant down Babylon one more time
(Come we go chant down Babylon)!

Men see their dreams and aspiration-a
Crumble in front of their face,
And all of their wicked intention
To destroy the human race.

And how I know – and how I know – and that’s how I know:
A Reggae Music, mek we chant down Babylon;
With music, mek we chant down Babylon;
This music, mek we chant down Babylon;
This music, come we chant down Babylon.

Come we go chant down Babylon one more time
(Come we go chant down Babylon one more time);
Come we go chant down Babylon one more time
(Come we go chant down Babylon);
For them soft! Yes, them soft! (ah-yoy!)
Them soft! Me say, Them soft! (ah-yoy!)
So come we go chant down Babylon one more time
(Come we go chant down Babylon)!

Me say, Music you’re – music you’re the key,
Talk to who? Please talk to me,
Bring the voice of – of the Rastaman,
Communicating to – ‘cating to everyone.

How I (know) – how I know, how I (know) – how I know –
And that’s how I know:
A Reggae Music, chant down – chant down – chant down Babylon,
Chant down Babylon, chant down Babylon,
Chant down Babylon!
Reggae Music, chant down Babylon!
Reggae Music, chant down Babylon!
Reggae Music, chant down Babylon!
Reggae Music! (chant down Babylon)

Where is the love to be found? (oo-ooh-ooh)
Won’t someone tell me?
‘Cause my (sweet life) life must be somewhere to be found –
(must be somewhere for me)
Instead of concrete jungle (la la-la!),
Where the living is harder (la-la!).

Concrete jungle (la la-la!):
Man you got to do your (la la-la!) best. Wo-ooh, yeah.
No chains around my feet,
But I’m not free, oh-ooh!
I know I am bound here in captivity;
G’yeah, now – (never, never) I’ve never known happiness;
(never, never) I’ve never known what sweet caress is –
Still, I’ll be always laughing like a clown;
Won’t someone help me? ‘Cause I (sweet life) –
I’ve got to pick myself from off the ground
(must be somewhere for me), he-yeah! –
In this a concrete jungle (la la-la!):
I said, what do you cry for me (la-la!) now, o-oh!
Concrete jungle (la la-la!), ah, won’t you let me be (la la-la!), now.
Hey! Oh, now!

I said that life (sweet life) – it must be somewhere to be found
(must be somewhere for me)

So while you point your fingers someone else is judging you)
