Rat Race by Bob Marley

Uh! Ya too rude! Uh! Eh! What a rat race! Oh, what a rat race! Oh, what a rat race! Oh, what a rat race! This is the rat race! Rat race! (Rat race!)

Some a lawful, some a bastard, some a jacket: Oh, what a rat race, yeah! Rat race!

Some a gorgon-a, some a hooligan-a, some a guine-gog-a In this 'ere rat race, yeah! Rat race! I'm singin' that When the cat's away, The mice will play. Political voilence fill ya city, ye-ah! Don't involve Rasta in your say say; Rasta don't work for no C.I.A. Rat race, rat race, rat race! Rat race, I'm sayin': When you think is peace and safety: A sudden destruction. Collective security for surety, ye-ah!

Don't forget your history; Know your destiny: In the abundance of water, The fool is thirsty. Rat race, rat race, rat race!

Rat race! Oh, it's a disgrace To see the human-race In a rat race, rat race! You got the horse race; You got the dog race; You got the human-race; But this is a rat race, rat race!

Bob Marley's best was Red Red Wine. A great song.

Sorry, Marley did not record this Neil Diamond tune.

"Red Red Wine" is a song written and originally recorded by American artist Neil Diamond. It has been covered by Tony Tribe, Jimmy James & the Vagabonds, and more famously by British reggae group UB40, whose version topped the U.S. and UK singles charts. Diamond's version reached number sixty-two on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1968. Diamond later performed a UB40-inspired version of the song on tour. This version was released on Diamond's The Greatest Hits (1966-1992).

Bob Marley's best is "redemption song"

Wow, I’m impressed. Now that you mention it I do remember hearing Neil Diamond singing Red Red Wine. I still like Marley’s version.

That is NOT Bob Marley. That is UB40.

But a great song.

Another great Marley tune that Occupy can adopt as it's anthem.

"Crazy baldheads"
