Chat With Me > Lyrics

For help with the meaning of some of the words I use please use:

The Patois Dictionary

DONíT STOP THE MUSIC

DON’T STOP THE MUSIC !

DO ANYTHING YOU WANT BUT

DON’T STOP THE MUSIC!

CAN’T YOU SEE IT’S ALL I GOT



NOW MY PAPA DID’NT LIKE THE SOUND OF THE DRUM AND THE BASS

COMING THROUGH THE SPEAKER IN THE LIVINGROOM

SO HE CAME DOWN STAIRS IN A PUFF SHOUTING:

“ SON YOU BETTER JUST TURN THAT MUSIC DOWN!”

WELL I WAS NEVER ONE TO DISAGREE

I WAS ONE OF THE BEST BEHAVED IN THE FAMILY

BUT WHEN IT CAME TO MY SWEET REGGAE MUSIC

I HAD TO TELL HIM: PAPA NO, DON’T STOP THE MUSIC



MUSIC WAS MY FIRST LOVE AND IT WILL BE MY LAST

WE DREAM ABOUT THE FURTURE BUT WE CAN’T FORGET THE PAST

NO I CAN’T FORGET, CAN’T FORGET

CAN’T FORGET NO, CAN’T FORGET

I WAS BORN AND RAISED IN THE GHETTO

A MEMBER OF A STRUGGLING FAMILY

BORN AND RAISED IN THE GHETTO

HARD TIMES WAS MY ONLY REALITY

BORN AND RAISED IN THE GHETTO

IT’S NOT A VERY NICE PLACE TO BE

BUT THE MUSIC GIVES US THE VIBE SO:

DON’T STOP THE MUSIC!



TIME ON ANOTHER PLANE NO TIME FOR MATERIALISM

TIME TO CLIMB THAT LADDER AGAIN NO TIME FOR THIS SYSTEM OF ISM

AND NO MATTER WHAT A GUY MIGHT TRY OR WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING

WHILE I GOT THIS BREATH OF LIFE JAH CONSCIOUS MUSIC I’M PLAYING SO:

DON’T STOP THE MUSIC!
