Bob Marley

400 Years – Bob Marley

400 years (400 years, 400 years. Wo-o-o-o)
And it’s the same –
The same (wo-o-o-o) philosophy
I’ve said it’s four hundred years;
(400 years, 400 years. Wo-o-o-o, wo-o-o-o)
Look, how long (wo-o-o-o)
And the people they (wo-o-o-o) still can’t see.
Why do they fight against the poor youth of today?
And without these youths, they would be gone –
All gone astray

Come on, let’s make a move:
(make a move, make a move. Wo-o-o-o, wo-o-o-o)
I can (wo-o-o-o) see time (wo-o-o-o) – time has come,
And if-a fools don’t see
(fools don’t see, fools don’t see. Wo-o-o-o)
I can’t save the youth:
The youth (wo-o-o-o) is gonna be strong.
So, won’t you come with me;
I’ll take you to a land of liberty
Where we can live – live a good, good life
And be free.

Look how long: 400 years, (400 years, 400 years) –
Way too long! (wo-o-o-o)
That’s the reason my people (wo-o-o-o) – my people can’t see.
Said, it’s four hundred long years – (400 years, 400 years. Wo-o-o-o)
Give me patience (wo-o-o-o) – same philosophy.

It’s been 400 years, (400 years, 400 years)
Wait so long! Wo-o-o-o, wo-o-o-o.
How long? 400 long, long years. /fadeout/

We’re more than numbers.
All together now:
Wake up and live now, y’all!
(Wake up and live) Wake up and live!
Wake up and live, y’all!

Whey they use you live big today: tomorrow you buried in-a casket.
One – one cocoa full a basket, yeah, yes!
Whey they use you live big today: tomorrow you bury in-a casket.

Waiting In Vain – Bob Marley

1, 2, 3:

I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love;
I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love.
From the very first time I rest my eyes on you, girl,
My heart says follow t’rough.
But I know, now, that I’m way down on your line,
But the waitin’ feel is fine:
So don’t treat me like a puppet on a string,
‘Cause I know I have to do my thing.
Don’t talk to me as if you think I’m dumb;
I wanna know when you’re gonna come – soon.
I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love;
I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love;
I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love,
‘Cause if summer is here,
I’m still waiting there;
Winter is here,
And I’m still waiting there.

/Guitar solo/

Like I said:
It’s been three years since I’m knockin’ on your door,
And I still can knock some more:
Ooh girl, ooh girl, is it feasible?
I wanna know now, for I to knock some more.
Ya see, in life I know there’s lots of grief,
But your love is my relief:
Tears in my eyes burn – tears in my eyes burn
While I’m waiting – while I’m waiting for my turn,
See!

I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love;
I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love;
I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love;
I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love;
I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love, oh!
I don’t wanna – I don’t wanna – I don’t wanna – I don’t wanna –
I don’t wanna wait in vain.
I don’t wanna – I don’t wanna – I don’t wanna – I don’t wanna –
I don’t wanna wait in vain.
No, I don’t wanna (I don’t wanna – I don’t wanna – I don’t wanna –
I don’t wanna – I don’t wanna wait in vain) –
No I – no I (I don’t wanna – I don’t wanna – I don’t wanna – I don’t
wanna – I don’t wanna wait in vain) –
No, no-no, I, no, I (I don’t wanna – I don’t wanna – I don’t wanna –
I don’t wanna – I don’t wanna wait in vain) –
It’s your love that I’m waiting on (I don’t wanna – I don’t wanna –
I don’t wanna – I don’t wanna – I don’t wanna wait in vain);
It’s me love that you’re running from.
It’s Jah love that I’m waiting on (I don’t wanna – I don’t wanna –
I don’t wanna – I don’t wanna – I don’t wanna wait in vain);
It’s me love that you’re running from.

Kaya – Bob Marley

Wake up and turn me loose
Wake up and turn me loose
Wake up and turn me loose
For the rain is falling

Got to have kaya now
Got to have kaya now
Got to have kaya now
For the rain is falling

I’m so high, I even touch the sky
Above the falling rain
I feel so good in my neighbourhood, so
Here I come again

Got to have kaya now
Got to have kaya now
Got to have kaya now
For the rain is falling

Feelin’ irie I
Feelin’ irie I
Feelin’ irie I
‘Cause I have some kaya now

I feel so high, I even touch the sky
Above the falling rain
I feel so good in my neighbourhood, so
Here I come again

Got to have kaya now
Got to have kaya now
Got to have kaya now, Lord
For the rain is falling

(Kaya now, kaya, kaya) Huh

Hallelujah – Bob Marley

Hear the children cryin’,
but I know they cry not in vain.
Now the times are changin’;
love has come to bloom again.

Smelling the air when spring comes by raindrops
reminds us of youthful days.
But now it’s not rain that water the cane crops,
but the sweat from man’s brow;
the substance from our spine.
We gotta keep on living, living on borrowed time:
Hallelujah time!

Yes, you can hear the children singing: Hallelujah time!
As they go singing by and by: Hallelujah time!
Oh, “hallelujah” singing in the morning.
Hallelujah time! Let them sing; don’t let them cry.

Over rocks and mountains
the sheep are scattered all around.
Over hills and valleys,
they are everywhere to be found.
But though we bear our burdens now,
All afflictions got to end somehow:
From swinging the hammer, pulling the plough.

Why won’t you let us be, to live in harmony?
We like to be free like birds in a tree.

Hallelujah time! Yes, you can hear the children singing.
Hallelujah time! Yes, as they go singing by and by.
Hallelujah time! Oh “hallelujah” singing in the morning.
Let them sing; never let them cry.
Hallelujah time! “Hallelujah” singin’ in the morning
