Rights


Author: rocksta
Title: rights
Album: we are the world

The food has been already cooked while you're hungry
now would you rather eat or stay hungry
I'd say go ahead and eat if you asked me

the food you've got to eat is your rights

yeah yeah

jah jah know

the food you've got to eat is your rights

and no no no

mix you not tradition with today's generation

while tradition is there to benefit its own self
constitutions are there to benefit the people

and right things will never be wrong in the eyes of the educated people
the wrong thing may seem to be right to those that yes know well well well and well and well that it is wrong

law man of today is no fool
pay no attention to those that like to convince you of those things that only works in their best interest

the author of justice will never blame for standing up for yourself and defending your rights

ah ah ahh, I love God

The food has been already cooked while you're hungry
now would you rather eat or stay hungry
I'd say go ahead and eat if you  asked me

ain't your right more precious than gold and silver
and any taxi drive will gladly drive you to the justice house

yeah yeah

you know there shall be a law library in every corner in every nation
tradition can cause you to be your own slave of your mind

if so, emancipate yourself

don’t you be afraid of society
jah jah know

we shall always say no at the right time
yea yea yeah

stand up for yourself

and point that pointing finger at someone if you really need to
you know you've got to defend the food that you've got to eat

my brothers and sisters
y’all go ahead and figure out
who are your friends and who are trying to fool you
than you can decide who you should give ears to

The food has been already cooked while you're hungry
now would you rather eat or stay hungry
I'd say go ahead and eat if you have asked me

Do No Time - A reggae song by Rocksta

Author: rocksta
Title: do no time
Album: we are the world

yeah those things
I used to hear before I got here
those are obstacle
here I come with so many surprises

so many story that can make you say no I can’t believe that
you’re better believe me

yo
watch yourself yo
ah hun
you watch your bad yo

life ain’t gonna give you no break
only you can do that yourself

yo
watch yourself yo
ah hun
you watch your bad yo

y’all brothers are loosing your minds
buying time for a high a price
I never wanna see that no more
no no

behind the metal oh now is late don’t you think so
your freedom shall never be a play grown

think hard and use your mind
try hard and never do time


think hard and use your mind
try hard and never do time

The old man have cried for his little son
because he can’t see him no more
because he’s been taken away

yeah, I have been followed in Westland
caught myself in a situation wondering but only for a little while

the only thing I did wrong was driving in the suburb while I was an urban man
while I look a little different
ah ah aah

what are you gonna use after you loose your mind
oh oh yeah
that’s the driver to the penitentiary

mama gonna miss you
your father gonna miss you

you gonna miss the whole neighborhood
get out and be a convict
ah ah,
I am thinking about my brother Akon
stay alert

this is the system I know all about
right now may worth a while for a little bit
but you gonna do a while


think hard and use your mind
try hard and never do time

think hard and use your mind
try hard and never do time

see you never know where the sheriff will be patrolling
you never know where mister mister mister sheriff is on the way

and even in fact if you did know
don’t you think you should be a good citizen and do the right thing

try hard and hard
never never never do no time

think hard and use your mind
try hard and never do time

think hard and use your mind
try hard and never do time

Tomorrow

 

Author: rocksta
Title: tomorrow
Album: we are the world

When they said to the little boy tomorrow is a day
he said it must that one
when there will be lots of meat
it’s not a holiday
not what you looking for
but sure is on the way

education is the key
so go to school and study hard

never never do like your older brothers some of them I mean

used to come home from school and throw all the books away
go in the streets and be playing soccer

in life you get paid if you know
you’ve got to pay if you don’t know
so go ahead and study hard so that you can know

in life you get paid if you know
you’ve got to pay if you don’t know
so go ahead and study hard so that you can know

I say tomorrow is today, it is today
you’ve got to be ready for tomorrow today so there will be something when you get to it

it feel like it’s about rain
get your umbrella
go ahead and get your umbrella because it’s about to rain tomorrow
the cloud does not care who we are

I am saying be ready
or do what we called prepared
ah ah aah
so that you will do just fine

because...

in life you get paid if you know
you’ve got to pay if you don’t know
so go ahead and study hard so that you can know

in life you get paid if you know
you’ve got to pay if you don’t know
so go ahead and study hard so that you can know


let’s just say it’s raining and we don’t need umbrellas
we just want the holy water to be poured over our heads
we’ve clapping our hands be singing and dancing

the tatoo on your face should never read ignorant
the attitude should always be yes we can
and no we can’t shall be a forbidden phrase
self education is a must once you leave mom and dad’s
so I say

in life you get paid if you know
you’ve got to pay if you don’t know
so go ahead and study hard so that you can know
