Wrongly abused, now 
But through the powers of the Most-‘Igh, 
They’ve got to turn me loose…Mm!

Midnight Ravers

Do-do-do. Do-do-do. Do-do-do.
(You can’t tell the woman from the man)
No, I say you can’t, ’cause they’re dressed in the same pollution;
(dressed in the same pollution)
Their mind is confused with confusion
With their problems since they’ve no solution:
They become the midnight ravers.

Someone say:
(Please, don’t let me down!)
Oh, please, don’t let me – ee-ya-bab, oh, please don’t let me down!
(Midnight) Midnight ravers! (ravers) Midnight ravers!
(Please don’t) Oh, please, please,
don’t let me down, down, down, down, down!
Don’t let me down;
Don’t let me down.

I see ten thousand chariots (ah-ah-ah-ah)
And they coming without horses; (coming without horses)
The riders – they cover their face, (ah-ah-ah-ah)
So you couldn’t make them out in smoky place –
(make them out in smoky places)
In that musical stampede, where everyone is doing their thing.
Musical stampede – people swingin’;
Musical stampede. Someone say:
People, ride on! (keep a-ridin’!)
(keep a-ridin’!) Ride on!
(keep a-ridin’!) Midnight ravers!
People, ride on! (keep a-ridin’!)
(keep a-ridin’!) Ride on!
(keep a-ridin’!) Midnight ravers!

I can’t tell my woman from the man:
She is dressed in the same pollution; (dressed in the same pollution)
Her mind is confused with confusion:
To my problem seems there’s never – never no solution!

I’ve become a night-life raver
And I’m beggin’ you, (please) please, please –
oh, beel-ya-ba-ba – please don’t ya let me down!

(Night-life ravers) Night-life ravers! Night-life ravers!
Oh, please, please, please, please, don’t let me down.
Don’t let me down;
Don’t let me down!

I see ten thousand chariots (ah-ah-ah-ah)
And they coming without horses; (coming without horses)
The riders they cover their face, (ah-ah-ah-ah)
So you couldn’t make them out in smoky place –
In that musical stampede, oh!
It’s the musical stampede. Ride on!
It’s the musical stampede, some preacher say!
People ride on! (keep a-ridin’!)
(keep a-ridin’!) Ride on!
(keep a-ridin’!) Midnight ravers!
A-ride on! (keep a-ridin’!)
(keep a-ridin’!) Ride on!
(keep a-ridin’!) Midnight ravers!
Ride on, y’all! (keep a-ridin’!)
(keep a-ridin’!) Ride on!
(keep a-ridin’!) Midnight ravers!
Ride on! (keep a-ridin’!)
(keep a-ridin’!) Don’t let me down, midnight ravers!
(keep a-ridin’!)
Midnight ravers, don’t let me down! (keep a-ridin’!)
Don’t let me down – don’t let me down! (keep a-ridin’!)
Well, I’m comin’!
I got too much talkin’ 

 

Misty Morning 

Misty mornin’, don’t see no sun;
I know you’re out there somewhere having fun.
There is one mystery – yea-ea-eah – I just can’t express:
To give your more, to receive your less.
One of my good friend said, in a reggae riddim,
“Don’t jump in the water, if you can’t swim.”
The power of philosophy – yea-ea-eah – floats through my head
Light like a feather, heavy as lead;
Light like a feather, heavy as lead, yeah.

See no sun! Oh.
Time has come, I want you –
I want you to straighten out my tomorrow! Uh.
I want – I want – I want you – (tomorrow).
Oh, wo-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah!
I want you to straighten out my (tomorrow)!

Misty (morning) mornin’, don’t see no sun;
I know you’re out there somewhere having fun.
Mysteries I just can’t express:
How can you ever give your more to receive your less?
Like my good friend said, in a reggae riddim:
“You can’t jump – you can’t jump in the water, if you can’t swim.”

I want you (I want you) – I want you to straighten out my today –
My tomorrow – my-my-my – my – my
(I want you to straighten out my tomorrow).
On a misty morning, uh! (I want you to straighten out my tomorrow).
Oh-oh oh-oh-oh-oh!
(I want you to straighten out my tomorrow)
Straighten out my tomorrow – my tomorrow! Need some straightenin’ out!
(I want you to straighten out my tomorrow)
Mist! Mm. (I want) Mist! (you to straighten out my tomorrow)
Misty! Oh! (I want you to straighten out my tomorrow)

 

Mix Up, Mix Up

Oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord, yeah!

Well, it’s not easy,
It’s not easy
Speak the truth, come on, speak. Eh, now!
It ever cause it what it will:
He who hide the wrong he did
Surely did the wrong thing still.

Get in the studio of –
Studio of time and experience
Here we experience the good and bad;
What we have, and what we had –
This session (session),
Not just another version (version).
Oh Lord, give me a session (session),
Not another version (version)!
They’re so much stumbling blocks right in-a our way:
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday;
There’s so much wanting, so much gaining, so much have done.

Too much little mix-up, in the mix-up, yes!
Too much little mix up!
Too much of this mix up – mix up!

I was born in the country, right on top of the hill
I still remain, I know I still, I will-a,
But through your f…in’ respect and through your false pride
Someone wanna take Jah – Jah – Jah children for a ride!
Shut up! Open the gate, and let the saints through.

Please make it a session (session);
Not another version (version);
Ooh, please make it a session (session);
Not another version (version)!

Hey, you been talkin’ all your mouth full of lies,
Sitting there toppling and, Lord, they criticize.
So through the eyes of the fool the deaf is wise,
And through the eyes of the wise the fool is size.

Saying is too much mix up – mix up!
Saying is too much mix up – mix up!

I wanna clear the wheel once and for all;
I wanna clear my wheels, I don’t care who fall!
I gotta clear my wheels once and for all;
Clear my wheels, I don’t care who fall – fall:
(Too much mix-up – mix-up!)

/Guitar solo/

Hey! Mr. Music, why don’t you wanna play?
Don’t you know today is a bright holiday? Yeah! (holiday)
Some people waiting for the message that you bring,
They listening to every word that you’ll sing.

Singing: (too much mix-up – mix-up –
(Too much little mix up!)
Would you groove along now
(Too much mix up – mix up), yeah!
Yes, would you groove along now
(Too much little mix-up!)
They just can’t stop you know
(Too much mix-up – mix-up)! /fadeout/

Movement Of Jah People 

Men and women will fight you down
When ya see Jah light
Let me tell you, if you´re not wrong
Everything is all right
Walk, through the roads of creation
We´re the generation
Wo trod through great tribulation
Exodus, movement of Jah people

Are you satisfied with the life you´re living
We know where we´re going
We know wher we´re from
We´re leaving Babylon
We´re going to our Father´s land …

Mr. Brown

(Ooh – ooh – ooh – ooh)
(It’s Mr Brown) Mr Brown is a clown who rides to town in a coffin.
(Well, here he comes) In the top is … three rows on top and two inside there.
Oh, what a confusion! Ooh, yeah, yeah!
What a botheration! Ooh, now, now!
Who is Mr Brown? I wanna know now!
He is nowhere to be found.
From Mandeville to slide-a-ville, coffin runnin’ around,
Upsetting, upsetting, upsetting the town,
Asking for Mr Brown.
From Mandeville to slide-a-ville, coffin runnin’ around,
upsetting, upsetting, upsetting the town,
Asking for Mr Brown.

O-o-oh, calling duppy conqueror,
I’m the ghost-catcher!
This is your chance, oh big, big Bill bull-bucka,
Take your chance! Prove yourself! Oh, yeah!
Down in parade
People runnin like a masquerade.
The police make a raid,
But the people – oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah – they think it
fade.
What a thing in town
Crows chauffeur-driven around,
Skankin’ as if they had never known
The man they call “Mr Brown”.
I can tell you where he’s from now:
From Mandeville to slide-a-ville, coffin runnin’ around,
Upsetting, upsetting, upsetting the town,
Asking for Mr Brown.
From Mandeville to slide-a-ville
