MY OPINION II

FIRST OF ALL I THANK YOU JAH

FOR THE BEAUTY OF LIFE

FOR A SPIRITUAL STRENGTH

IN MY MOMENTS OF STRIFE

I THANK YOU FOR THE BIBLE

LIKE A COMPASS IT’S MY GUIDE

SO I WON’T GET LOST OR LEFT [NO WAY]

BY THE WAY SIDES

ALTHOUGH I’VE LOST MY DREAD

I HAVEN’T LOST MY SIGHT

AND UNTIL MY DAY OF REST

I WILL FOLLOW YOUR LIGHT

I WILL FIGHT AGAINST INJUSTICE

HYPOCRITES, PARASITES AND SODOMITES

AND OVER EVIL WILL I WIN

WITH THE TRUTH AND THE RIGHT



MY NAME IS PATO BANTON THIS IS MY OPINION

MY NAME IS PATO BANTON AND THIS IS MY OPINION



I DO NOT HOLD NO PREJUDICE FOR ANY OTHER NATION

AS FAR AS I’M CONCERNED WE’RE ARE ALL A PART OF GOD’S CREATION

LIKE DOG A DOG AND CAT A CAT A HUMAN IS A HUMAN

SO THERE SHOULD BE NO PREJUDICE BECAUSE OF ONE’S COMPLEXION

THERE SHOULD BE NO PREJUDICE BECAUSE OF ONE’S RELIGION

FOR EVERY MAN HAS GOT THE RIGHT TO MAKE HIS OWN DECISION

I DON’T JUST TALK TO EVERY MAN BUT ALSO TO EVERY WOMAN

UNDERSTANDING GIVES YOU KNOWLEDGE BUT THE FEAR OF GOD IS WISDOM

WISDOM IS THE COMPASS THAT WILL SHOW YOU THE DIRECTION

TOWARDS THE LIGHT OF JAH! AND AWAY FROM ALL ILLUSION



MY NAME IS PATO BANTON ME BORN AND GROW A ENGLAND

MY NAME IS PATO BANTON AND THIS IS MY OPINION (REPEAT)



SOMETIMES I CRY FOR MY PEOPLE IN SOUTH AFRICA

DEPRESSED AND PERSECUTED BY APART-HATE LAW

UNDER THE RULE OF A MASS MURDERER

WHO GOES BY THE NAME OF MR BOTHA

WITH TEARS IN MY EYES I LOOK TO THE SKIES

AND WONDER HOW LONG MUST MY PEOPLE SUFFER

BUT JUST LIKE MALCOM X AND MARTIN LUTHER KING

MAHATMA GANDHI AND NELSON MANDELA

MY DREAM IS FOR ALL MEN TO LIVE AS BROTHER

SO ALL FREEDOM FIGHTERS LET’S SING TOGETHER



WOE MR BOTHA FREE UP SOUTH AFRICA REPEAT (REPEAT 4X)



THIS IS MY OPINION (REPEAT 4X)



YOU SEE

IN A WORLD SO FULL OF HATE CRIME AND INJUSTICE

WHAT WE NEED RIGHT NOW IS LOVE SWEET LOVE

SO WON’T YOU COME AND SING THIS SONG WITH ME RIGHT NOW

WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW IS LOVE SWEET LOVE

NO NOT JUST FOR SOME BUT FOR EVERYONE [REPEAT 3X]



THIS IS MY OPINION
