TIME COME



Time Come



(Pato Banton)



 



5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Time come!   



5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Time come!



 



Well first of all I wanna break it down
nice and easy




Cause I know certain folk won't be too
pleased with me




Especially when they think for a while




This youth with the smile is turning
out to be a wild child




See I been thinking lately



That if I bend any more
God knows they
gonna break me




I give my all and they just fake me
(yeah yeah)



Irritate me with those smiles that are
so flaky




From the path they wanna sway me, stray
me




Time is now and they delay, delay,
delay me



Underrate and underpay me
(maaan)



Then like some kind of game they wanna
play me




Like a go-go up and down just like a
yo-yo




Round and round like a clown called
bozo




Well I ain't going with that flow no
mo' Joe




From now on that's a no no….
the time
has come!



 



Chorus



 



I hear some saying yummy yummy (mmmm)




But who be putting all that food inna
your tummy




Aha ha might sound funny, but it
ain't!




I know you only here for the money




You think I ain't got a clue, but I do




Believe me I can see straight through
you




So tell me who be fooling who,
as you
continue



To bite the same hand that feeds you




Every word I say is true



I pray
forgive them Father for they
know not what they do




"forgive them Father" I beg you do




For they know not what they put me
through




Still I ain't gonna judge (judge not)
and I refuse to hold a
grudge




I am gonna stand up strong I'll never
budge




Even through the rain and the
floods…..
cause the time has come!



 



Chorus



 



Old time people used to say:
"Silent rivers run deep."




"Youth man you better look before
you leap."





"Beware of the wolves who dress up
like sheep."




"And before you sleep, pray The
Lord your soul to keep."



 



Yeah, I come to realize it just ain't
wise




for a ragamuffin youth to compromise,




Jah knows cause after all the hype and
the jive




You still gotta struggle to survive




But I'll swallow my pride




And listen to the guide who resides
inside




“Move on with Revelation”



“Spread the word to the Now Generation




So the time has come and I've made my
decision




This ain't no ego trip this is a
mission




To spread the word so it can be heard,



Word!
By those who wanna listen to the
truth




The whole truth and nothing but the
truth




Especially the youth in this age




As we turn a page come on get
ready…..
the time has come!



 



5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Time come!   



5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Time come!
