Rat Race Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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!)
Verse 2
Some a lawful, some a bastard, some a jacket
Oh, what a rat race, yeah! Rat race!
Verse 3
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!
Verse 4
Don't forget your history
Know your destiny
In the abundance of water,
The fool is thirsty
Rat race, rat race, rat race!
Verse 5
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!
