Satisfy My Soul 

Oh, please don’t you rock my boat (don’t rock my boat)
‘Cause I don’t want my boat to be rockin’ (don’t rock my boat)
Oh, please don’t you rock my boat (don’t rock my boat)
‘Cause I don’t want my boat to be rockin’ (don’t rock my boat)

I’m telling you that, oh, oh-ooh, wo-o-wo!
I like it – like it this (I like it like this, I like it like this) –
So keep it steady, like this. (I like it like this)
And you should know – you should know by now:
I like it (I like it like this), I like it like this
(I like it like this, I like it like this),
I like it like this, ooh yeah! (I like it like this)

(Satisfy my soul) You satisfy my soul (satisfy my soul);
You satisfy my soul (satisfy my soul).
Every little action (satisfy my soul),
there’s a reaction (satisfy my soul).
Oh, can’t you see what you’ve done for me, oh, yeah!
I am happy inside all – all of the time. Wo-oo-o-oo!

When we (bend) bend a new corner,
I feel like a (sweep) sweepstake winner.
When I meet you around the corner (round the corner),
You make me feel like a sweepstake winner (a sweep – a sweepstake winner).
Whoa, child! Can’t you see? You must believe me!
Oh darling, darling, I’m calling, calling:
Can’t you see? Why won’t you believe me?
Oh, darling, darling, I’m calling, calling
(calling, calling, calling, calling)

When I meet you around the corner,
Oh, I said, “Baby, never let me be a loner”,
And then you hold me tight, you make me feel all right.
Yes, when you hold me tight, you made me feel all right.

Whoa, honey, can’t you see? Don’t you believe me?
Oh, darling, darling, I’m callin’, callin’:
Can’t you see? Why won’t you believe me?
Oh, darling, darling, I’m callin’, callin’
(calling, calling, calling, calling).

Satisfy my soul – satisfy my soul – satisfy my soul – satisfy my soul:
That’s all I want you to do, that’s all I’ll take from you:
Satisfy my soul, satisfy my soul.

 

Screw Faces 

Bob Marley: Whoa, now!

Screwface know-a who fi frighten!
Screwface know-a who fi frighten!
Like I told, they say, “Coward, man”.
Gonna keep some bones
And all violent man gonna weep and moan.
He that exalted him say, “Yeah!”
Shall be obeyed.

Remember Jah – Jah children deh!
Don’t dread no pain.
Fear do we go now
To the rivers of ungodly waters, we’ll fear no foe
(fear no foe, fear no foe).
Wherever I go,
Not even the pestilence
That crawl at I’n’I
Can’t do – wo-wo-wo – me no wrong (just can’t do me no wrong).
Oh, now!
I tell you what red is!
I tell you what I know:
(Screwface know-a who fi frighten!)
Screwface know-a who fi frighten!
Screwface know-a who fi frighten! Wo, now!
(Screwface know-a who fi frighten!) Screwface will frighten
screwface!
(Screwface know-a who fi frighten!) Long time gone, y’all!
(Screwface know-a who fi frighten!) Screwface will frighten
screwface!
Wo, yeah! Now!
(Screwface know-a who fi frighten!)

/Intrumental ending/ /fadeout/ 

 

She’s Gone 

My woman is gone (woman is gone),
my woman is gone (woman is gone).

She had left me a note hanging on my door:
She say she couldn’t take it, she couldn’t take any more.
The pressure around me – just couldn’t see;
She felt like a prisoner who needs to be free.
Fools have tried, yeah – wisemen have failed:
Oh, listen to me, honey: life could never be another jail.
Still we know now: we’ll never see smoke without fire
And everyone you see has a heart desire.

She’s gone (she’s gone), she’s gone (she’s gone),
she’s gone (she’s gone), she’s gone, ye-ah!
Oh, mocking bird, have you ever heard,
Words that I never heard?
Oh, mocking bird, have you ever heard,
Words that I never heard?

She made it through the exit (she just couldn’t take it);
She made it through the exit (she just couldn’t make it).
And, oh, my children, if you see me cryin’:
My woman is gone.
If you see me – if you see me – if you see me –
if you see me cryin’ –
If you see me – if you see me – if you see me –
if you see me cryin’:

She’s gone (she’s gone), she’s gone (she’s gone), she’s gone, ye-ah!
Oh, mocking bird, have you ever heard,
Words that I never heard?
Oh, mocking bird, have you ever heard,
Words that I never heard?
She’s gone (she’s gone), she’s gone (she’s gone), she’s gone
(she’s gone)

Slave Driver 

Ooh-ooh-oo-ooh. Oo-oo-ooh! Oo-oo-ooh.

Catch a fire, so you can get burn, now. (catch a fire)
Slave driver, the table is turn; (catch a fire)
Catch a fire: gonna get burn. (catch a fire) Wo, now!

Ev’rytime I hear the crack of a whip,
My blood runs cold.
I remember on the slave ship,
How they brutalize the very souls.
Today they say that we are free,
Only to be chained in poverty.
Good God, I think it’s illiteracy;
It’s only a machine that makes money.
Slave driver, the table is turn, y’all. Ooh-ooh-oo-ooh.

Slave driver, uh! The table is turn, baby, now; (catch a fire)
Catch a fire, so you can get burn, baby, now. (catch a fire)

Catch a fire: so you can get burn, now. (catch a fire)

Ev’rytime I hear the crack of a whip,
My blood runs cold.
I remember on the slave ship,
How they brutalize the very soul.

O God, have mercy on our souls!
Oh, slave driver, the table is turn, y’all; (catch a fire)
Catch a fire, so you can get burn. (catch a fire)
Slave driver, the table is turn, y’all; (catch a fire)
Catch a fire … 

 

Slogans

Can’t take your slogans no more,
can’t take your slogans no more,
can’t take your slogans no more,
can’t take your slogans no more.
Wipe out the paintings of slogans
all over the streets (ooh, ooh, ooh),
confusing the people
while your asphalt burns our tired feet.
I see borders and barriers,
segregation, demonstration and riots (ooh, ooh, ooh),
a-sufferation of the refugees,
oh-oh, when, when will we be free?
Oh-oh-oh, we can’t take your slogans no more,
can’t take your slogans no more,
can’t take your slogans no more,
no more sweet talk from-a culprit,
no more sweet talk from the hypocrites.
/guitar solo/
So we know we can’t take your slogans no more,
can’t take your slogans no more,
can’t take your slogans no more,
no more sweet talk from-a cuprit,
no more sweet talk from the pulpit.
No more sweet talk from-a culprit,
no more sweet talk from the hypocrites (oh, no hypocrites!),
no more sweet talk from-a culprit (wo-ah yeah),
no more sweet talk (no-no-no-no sweet talk) from the hypocrites (hey!),

Small Axe 

Why boasteth thyself
Oh, evil men
Playing smart
And not being clever?
I said, you’re working iniquity
To achieve vanity (if a-so a-so)
But the goodness of Jah, Jah
I-dureth for-I-ver

So if you are the big tree
We are the small axe
Ready to cut you down (well sharp)
To cut you down

These are the words
Of my master, keep on tellin’ me
No weak heart

And whosoever diggeth a pit
Shall fall in it, fall in it
And whosoever diggeth a pit
Shall fall in it (… fall in it)

If you are the big tree, let me tell you that
We are the small axe, sharp and ready
Ready to cut you down (well sharp)
To cut you down

These are the words
Of my master, tellin’ me that
No weak heart
Shall prosper
And whosoever diggeth a pit
Shall fall in it, uh, bury in it
And whosoever diggeth a pit
Shall bury in it, uh (… bury in it)

If you are the big, big tree
We are the small axe
Ready to cut you down (well sharp)
To cut you down
If you are the big, big tree, let me tell you that
We are the small axe
Ready to cut you down (well sharp)
To cut you down
Sharpened …

Smoke Two Joints 

I smoke two joints in the morning
I smoke two joints at night
I smoke two joints in the afternoon
It makes me feel all right
I smoke two joints in time of peace
And two in time of war
I smoke two joints before I smoke two joints,
And then I smoke two more
That’s what i do, yo
Daddy he once told me,
“Son, you be hard workin’ man”
And momma she once told me,
“Son, you do the best you can”
Then one day I meet a man,
He came to me and said,
“Hard work good and hard work fine,
but first take care of head”
I smoke two joints in the morning
I smoke two joints at night
I smoke two joints in the afternoon
It makes me feel all right
I smoke two joints in time of peace
And two in time of war
I smoke two joints before I smoke two joints,
And then I smoke two more
Whoa rock me to the night

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,

Down in parade
People runnin like a masquerade.

But the people – oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah – they think it

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:

Upsetting, upsetting, upsetting the town,

Shalalalala, Shalalalala Soul Captives are free (x2)
When you wake up early in the morning
and you work right there with me
I sleep away without warning
But we don’t there will go
Shalalalala, Shalalalala Soul Captives are free (x2)
When you wake up early in the morning
and you work right there where they will come
I sleep away without warning
But we don’t there will go
Shalalalala, Shalalalala Soul Captives are free (x2)

Soul Rebel 

I’m a rebel, soul rebel.
I’m a capturer, soul adventurer.
See the morning sun,
On the hillside.
If you’re not living good, travel wide,
Said I’m a living man,
And I’ve got work to do.
If you’re not happy, children,
Then you must be blue,
Must be blue, people say.
I’m a rebel, let them talk,
Soul rebel, talk won’t bother me.
I’m a capturer, that’s what they say,
Soul adventurer, night and day.
I’m a rebel, soul rebel.
Do you hear them lippy.
I’m a capturer, gossip around the corner,
Soul adventurer. How they adventure on me.
But, see the morning sun, 
On the hillside.
If you’re not living good, travel wide,
Said I’m a living man,
I’ve got work to do.
If you’re not happy, then you must be blue,
Must be blue, people say.
I’m a rebel, soul rebel.
I’m a capturer, soul adventurer.
Do you hear me?
I’m a rebel, rebel in the morning.
Soul rebel, rebel at midday time.

Stand Alone 

There you are, cryin’ again
But your loveliness won’t cover your shame
There you are, you’re takin’ true love
And while you’re takin’ true love, you given the blame

(How could I …) Could I be so wrong
To think that we could get along?
Days I wasted with you, child
If I count there’ll be a million or two
Now I stand alone through the memories
That haunts me, that haunt
Yeah, and I walk alone through the rhapsodies
That taunts me, that taunts me, me

There you are, cryin’ again
But your loveline-ness won’t cover your shame
There you are, you’re takin’ true love
And while you’re takin’ true love, given the blame

(How could I …) How could I be so wrong
To think that we could get along?
Days I wasted with you, child
If I count there’ll be a million or two
Now I stand alone through the memories
That haunts me, that haunts (… me)
And I walk alone through the rhapsodies
That taunts me, that taunts me

Now, there you are, cryin’ again
But your loveline-ness won’t cover your sham-ame, hey
There you are, you’re takin’ true lo-love
While you’re takin’ true lo-love, given the blame

(How could I …) How could I … 

Stiff Necked Fools 

Stiff-necked fools, you think you are cool
To deny me for simplicity.
Yes, you have gone for so long
With your love for vanity now.
Yes, you have got the wrong interpretation
Mixed up with vain imagination.

So take Jah Sun, and Jah Moon,
And Jah Rain, and Jah Stars,
And forever, yes, erase your fantasy, yea-eah!

The lips of the righteous teach many,
But fools die for want of wisdom.
The rich man’s wealth is in his city;
The righteous’ wealth is in his Holy Place.

So take Jah Sun, and Jah Moon,
And Jah Rain, and Jah Stars,
And forever, yes, erase your fantasy, yeah!
Destruction of the poor is in their poverty;
Destruction of the soul is vanity, yeah!

So stiff-necked fools, you think you are cool
To deny me for simplicity, yea-ea-eah!
Yes, you have gone – gone for so long
With your love for vanity now.

But I don’t wanna rule ya!
I don’t wanna fool ya!
I don’t wanna school ya:
Things you – you might never know about!

Yes, you have got the wrong interpretation
Mixed up with vain – vain imagination:
Stiff-necked fools, you think you are cool
To deny me for, o-ooh, simplicity.

Stir It Up

Stir it up; little darlin’, stir it up. Come on, baby.
Come on and stir it up: little darlin’, stir it up. O-oh!

Stir it up; come on, baby!
Come on and stir it up, yeah!

Stop That Train 

Stop that train: I’m leavin’ – today!
Stop that train: I’m leavin’ – anyway!
Stop that train: I’m leavin’. And I said:
It won’t be too long whether I’m right or wrong;
I said, it won’t be too long whether I’m right or wrong.

All my good life I’ve been a lonely man,
Teachin’ my people who don’t understand;
And even though I tried my best,
I still can’t find no happiness.

So I got to say:
Stop that train: I’m leavin’ – oh, baby now!
Stop that train: I’m leavin’ – don’t care what you say!
Stop that train: I’m leavin’. And I said:
It won’t be too long whether I’m right or wrong;
Said, it won’t be too long whether I’m right or wrong.

Some goin’ east; and-a some goin’ west,
Some stand aside to try their best.
Some livin’ big, but the most is livin’ small::
They just can’t even find no food at all.

I mean, stop it:
Stop that train: I’m leavin’ – leavin’, mm-hmm.
Stop that train: I’m leavin’ – I don’t mind!
Stop that train: I’m leavin’. And I said:
It won’t be too long whether I’m right or wrong;
I said it won’t be too long whether I’m right or wrong.

Stop that train: I’m leavin’ – leavin’!
Stop that train: I’m leavin’ – can’t take it!
Stop that train: I’m leavin’ – got to be better!
It won’t be too long whether I’m right or wrong;
I said it won’t be too long whether I’m right or wrong.

Survival

(Ow, ow-ow-ow-ow!
Ow, ow-ow-ow-ow!)
Yeah, yeah, yeah!
How can you be sitting there
Telling me that you care –
That you care?
When every time I look around,
The people suffer in the suffering
In everyway, in everywhere.

Say: na-na-na-na-na (na-na, na-na!):
We’re the survivors, yes: the Black survivors!
I tell you what: some people got everything;
Some people got nothing;
Some people got hopes and dreams;
Some people got ways and means.

Na-na-na-na-na (na-na, na-na!):
We’re the survivors, yes: the Black survivors!
Yes, we’re the survivors, like Daniel out of the lions’ den
(Black survivors) Survivors, survivors!
So I Idren, I sistren,
A-which way will we choose?
We better hurry; oh, hurry; oh, hurry; wo, now!
‘Cause we got no time to lose.
Some people got facts and claims;
Some people got pride and shame;
Some people got the plots and schemes;
Some people got no aim it seems!

Na-na-na-na-na, na-na, na!
We’re the survivors, yes: the Black survivors!
Tell you what: we’re the survivors, yeah! – the Black survivors, yeah!
We’re the survivors, like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego
(Black survivors),
Thrown in the fire, but-a never get burn.
So I Idren, I-sistren,
The preaching and talkin’ is done;
We’ve gotta live up, wo now, wo now! –
‘Cause the Father’s time has come.
Some people put the best outside;
Some people keep the best inside;
Some people can’t stand up strong;
Some people won’t wait for long.

(Na-na-na-na-na!) Na-na-na, na-na-na na!
We’re the survivors
In this age of technological inhumanity (Black survival),
Scientific atrocity (survivors),
Atomic misphilosophy (Black survival),
Nuclear misenergy (survivors):
It’s a world that forces lifelong insecurity (Black survival).

Together now:
(Na-na-na-na-na!) Na na-na na na! (Na na-na na na!)
We’re the survivors, yeah!
We’re the survivors!
Yes, the Black survivors!
We’re the survivors:
A good man is never honoured (survivors)
in his own yountry (Black survival).
Nothing change, nothing strange (survivors).
Nothing change, nothing strange (Black survivors).
We got to survive, y’all! (survivors)
