Girl I've got a date, And I just mean, I can't stay late, whoah-ooo-oo.All my life and I've been warning you, girl, And not just once or twice, Take this from me: I'm as free as the birds in the tree-eee.All my, all my life and I've been warning you, girl, You just can't be my wife, Take this from me: I'm as free as the birds in the tree-eee-eee.Girl I've got a date, And I mean just, I can't stay late, whoah-ooo-oo.No, I've been warning you, girl, No, no, no, girl, you just can't be my wife, Take this from me: I'm just as free as the bee-eeeee-eee. The original was by Alton Ellis and first released in 1966.
Dennis Brown lyrics are copyright by their rightful owner(s) and Jah Lyrics in no way takes copyright or claims the lyrics belong to us.For so long In I feel as if I'm not a part of this world. So far, there's very little love, and an abundance of hatred. When they think that it's Peace and safety, that's when you know it's a sudden destruction.Living in Rome there is no security One God, One Aim, (move forward) One Destiny.Revolution Cry No, Jah will never forsake I Freedom isn't freedom if you force it And peace achieved through war is no peace.Equality don't mean nothing if you fake it, and we already know more than they believe.How many of us feel superior To others in some part of our lives See, man has always strived to be the better, and from his brothers his true feelings hide.
