PUSH ME OUT

I got to know now, why you put the hurt on me, baby, I got to know
Please, please tell me now, got to know
I, I, got to know how

How, you feel so lonely girl?

You don't know how it feels, you don't know what it's like
To live blue days and toss and turn at night
So, how you push me out and sleep at night?

I'm on a road with no direction
My sentimental heart is getting nasty infections
My mind is a roamin', about us I ponder
And when the night comes, I often wonder...

How, you push me out and sleep at night?
How, you push me out and sleep at night?

How, you feel so lonely girl?

You broken my heart, you done torn it apart
You left me standin' here alone in the dark

So, how, you push me out and sleep at night?
How, you push me out and sleep at night?

I got to know now, why you put the hurt on me, baby, I got to know

How, you feel so lonely girl?
How, you feel so lonely girl?
How, you feel so lonely girl?

How?
How?
How?
How?

GOING SOLO

Goin' solo 'cause I can't stand the pain
When you say, but you don't do so
You say you need me so then why don't you stay
When I'm blue, so lonely

Can't you see you've exhausted my soul and mind
When I play those games I'm the loser every time
Don't wanna play no fool
You've been playin', you're out lyin' all the time
Why don't you stop, leave me on my own

Was it something I said, something I've done?
Tired of blaming myself for doin' good, so I...
Tried my best to give you all I can
Something gone wrong

Can't you see you've exhausted my soul and mind
When I play those games I'm the loser every time
Don't wanna play no fool, no, no, no, no
Broke and bent and tore up every rule
Lost the faith I had in you

I'm goin' solo...

Can't you see you've exhausted my soul and mind
When I play those games I'm the loser every time
Don't wanna play no fool, no, no, no, no
You've been playin', you're out lyin' all the time
Why don't you stop, leave me on my own

Leave me on my own, leave me on my own, leave me on my own
Tried my best, said I tried, said I tried, leave me on my own

Warning boy! Warning boy!

Warning boy, it's the best we can do, oh yes

Heinous things they say, lock you far away
Lock you far, far, far away, far away

Mistah, your feet are still filled with blisters
You runnin' (x8)

Stop your lolly-gagging around town, makin' fuss
Stay undercover

Stay away, far away, and keep your face today
For we like to see you back as we say
"Keep on doin' like you're doin'"
You're gonna crush ya!

Better run, come quick, losing all your wit
It's a do or die with a sorry alibi
Heinous things they say, lock you far away
Lock you far, far, far away, far away

Undercover Brother, why you never come home for supper?
Your body craves a different hunger
Gonna get crushed, gonna get crushed, gonna get crushed
Gonna get crushed in the rush, now brother
Stay undercover

Hey, boy, you better dig out quick tonight
If you keep on slippin' you will bury you
Must stand up and fight, must stand up and fight, must stand up and fight
And if we have it our way, they'll never get you

Warning boy! Warning boy!
You runnin' (x8)
Warning boy! Warning boy!
You runnin' (x8)

MAMA BIRD

Sleep, yes I sleep, can't get no rest
My days are filled with trial and test
I've been searchin' for something to keep me strong
But I find I need nothing to sing my own song

Run, come now baby, it's sink or swim
Hold on tight now, let's begin
It's all right now, it's all right now,
It's all right now, it's all right now

One day, my bottom did go drop out
I looked around and seen mother wasn't there
So I found the load I was carrying was much, too much
And I grew a bit wiser and I lost my crutch

Shoo-be-doop, whoa-whoa
Shoo-be-doop
Shoo-be-doop, yeah-yeah
Shoo-be-doop...woooo

Mama Bird, she pushed me out of the nest with these words:
"Said no time for rest!"

You better, run, run, run,
Run as fast as you
Run, run, run,
Run as fast as you can
Run, run
Run as fast as you can

Well, time to pull the cord before I hit the ground
Shake the extra weight and keep this feelin' sound
So I found the load I was carrying much too much
And I grew a bit wiser, grew bit wiser

Look here, you're on the right track
Look here, you're on the right track
What I say, no turning back
Look here, you're on the right track

Shoo-be-doop, whoa-whoa
Shoo-be-doop, save time for me now, baby
Shoo-be-doop, yeah-yeah
Shoo-be-doop...woooo

Mama Bird, she pushed me out of the nest with these words:
"Said no time for rest!"

You better, run, run, run,
Run as fast as you
Run, run, run,
Run as fast as you can
Run, run
Run as fast as you
Run, run, run
Run as fast as you can

Why, every day, is a holiday in my mind
Some people stay mixed-up, confused

You accepted my love, I'm so glad 'bout that
I've been waiting patiently, now is the time to hold back
No need to explain why we do, childish things we do

That's why we go...

TAKIN' IT OFF

Puttin' it on, takin' it off, ain't no thang gettin' paid off! (x4)

This time is a good time
For the best in you to come true
The whole world can be so cruel, so cruel
And all you gotta do is be you

Well, we ain't gonna take it, we gonna break it!
Don't let the power people take it 'cause it's all fun and games
Now is it hatin'?

The payoff is no money thang, no dollar bill, no diamond ring
The payoff is for you to claim, not the funny games people playin'
The payoff is no luxury, so be your own king or queen
It's all insanity, but don't sweat 'cause they won't win!

Puttin' it on, takin' it off, ain't no thang gettin' paid off! (x4)

BANG THE SKILLET

Well, she bang the skillet on my head tonight and I was hurtin'
She made me sad for I know not what I do
Before she makes me cry and makes me sleep outside
I got to know why, tell me why

Now if I rest my head on a pillow tonight I will be happy
If he rests his head on a pillow tonight he will be cool
So, why you make me cry and make me sleep outside
I got to know why, tell me why

Bang the skillet, bang the skillet tonight

I ask what's cooking in your pot, I get the pan handle
And if I ask you to stop, I get the end of a broom
Oh, what makes your blood run hot, so high, to make you get out the pot and hit me no reason why
Tell me why, I got to know why

Well, she bang the skillet on my head tonight and I was hurtin'

BIT 'O SOUL

Out with some friends, with some new friends
Pass a wild card, oh, I pass it up, Lord
I met a girl, she was more than exquisite
Popped a Coke, poured it in a cup
They were dancing the limbo, while dancing to calypso
Steel drums and timbales, my house gift was tamales

Mash it up, now, ooooh, brother
Keep the ryhthm strong before the night is done
Tear it up, now, ooooh, sister
Moon is dropping slow and oh, the night's so young

Party shifted over to....reggae

Nyabinghi drums and the djembe
Party shifted over to....reggae
Ethiopians, Maytals and Lee Perry
Nyabingi drums and the djimbe

Mash it up, now, ooooh, brother
Movin', movin', movin' on 'til the morning comes
Tear it up, now, Rita Marley, Judy and Marcia
Comes smooth through my stereo, the night is oh so young

Out with some friends, with some new friends
I pass a wild card, oh, I passed her up, Lord
Met a girl, she was more than exquisite
Popped a Coke, poured it in a cup
We were doin' the limbo, while dancing to calypso
Steel drums and timbales, my house gift was tamales
