Track Name: Up All Night
Up all Night, Lord I don't wanna be up all night
Up all Night
Up All Night, Yes I do Yes I do Yes I do Yes I do
Up all Night

Got up late this morning actually I think it was the afternoon
Rub my eyes kissed my girls and had my first cuppa coffee bout 2 o clock

Tried to get outta the house today
To see the sun light before the day is done
By the time I finally got outta the house
I could see the moon and the stars shinin down on me now and I'm

Up all Night, Lord I don't wanna be up all night
Up all Night
Up All Night, Yes I do Yes I do Yes I do Yes I do
Up all Night

I got a letter from Prince Pauper from the Isle in the West Indies
Responsible for makin’ them sound my ears my feet say really don’t stop please
Jamaica music, the one I love, really makes me feel like home
Pauper said he found a dance in the country playin Rock Steady inna de yard
Keeping him

Up all Night, Lord I don’t wanna be up all night
Up all Night
Up All Night, Yes I do Yes I do Yes I do Yes I do
Up all Night

Sometimes I think I should get up in the morning like them other folks do
But I aint like them I wake up whenever the hell body tells me to
Even my little daughter stays up late She’s just fine as cute as a button
so it really doesn’t matter cos I’m livin my life the way I want and you know that I'm doin it stayin’

Up all Night, Lord I wanna stay up all night
Up all Night
Up All Night, Yes I do Yes I do Yes I do Yes I do
Up all Night

Track Name: I Got Joy
Verse 1:
Yes I am wakin’ up, yes I am getting’ hungry, yes I am washin’ dishes by and by
There’s a whole lotta hope in the bottom of my soul
And I’m gonna kill them haters with my love of life

Verse 2:
No I ain’t gettin’ tired, no ain’t gettin’ old, no I ain’t gettin’ weary in my stride
I feel just fine hangin’ out with my friends
Makin’ magic in the music come alive

*Chorus
I got Joy (I got Joy), I got Joy (I got Joy), (together) I got Joy Joy Joy Joy Joy

You can dance you can sing only love is what I bring
You will hear it echo long after I die

Verse 3:

I’ve a daughter Meixing, she’s as sweet as a pea, she make even the bitterest man crack a smile
She’s so pretty she makes all of them act silly,
make everybody stop make their mouth drop (Together) DAMN!

*Chorus

**Bridge

Seems like life is the Heavyweight Champion
Knock you down and it seems like you’re good as gone.
That’s the time you’ve gotta look to your loved ones

Don’t be afraid to ask the little ones, you know they know what’s goin’ on.


Verse 5:
Listen close to the children, their wishes don’t dismiss ‘em
Wake up and help them learn to love this life
'Cos you only got one, it’s OK to suck your thumb
Hoola Hoopin’ is a righteous way of life.

*Chorus
Track Name: Show Me
Show Me Show Me, Show me what you can't see
Show Me now honey what you can't see on TV

Everybody feelin' good together, being just who they are
Not puttin' on, just livin' it up and you don't have to be a superstar
If I tell you what's on my mind, and sometimes the truth is so hard to find
Well I got your back and I hope that you got mine.

Show Me Show Me, Show me what you can't see
Show Me now honey what you can't see on TV

Show Me, Show Me, Show Me what I can see, People together living in harmony
Some will laugh at the notion of peace, and unity in this world
I believe it can happen for anyone who believes, do you believe?

Show Me Show Me, Show me what you can't see
Show Me now honey what you can't see on TV

Oh Man we got to start somewhere, just let the women be heard,
Don't interject, just stop and relax, and give her the respect she deserves
If you just open up your heart, and don't push your weight around,
listen everybody I know we could all get down
Everybody's workin' hard, hard at what they want, not just workin' a dead end job,
sometimes we gotta do it, but don't give up, your dreams are your future so make it real now

Show Me Show Me, Show me what you can't see
Show Me now honey what you can't see on TV
Track Name: Boomerang
The world is a boomerang, every time I come back
Said the world is a boomerang, whatever you throw out then it come back
It’s a boomerang everytime I come back, yeah the world is a boomerang
Whatever you throw out gonna come back

Verse 1
Shoot –love- throw- ing star be –kind- re- wind kiss hits your face
Not the way you thought but its better than the way you came into it
I don’t mind if we do it though careful cos you might lose it
holding on too tight, gotta let it go
Sip and take a dip but don’t flip when it’s time to pass the O,
those in the know know that you gotta take it slow,
Tame the snake with a charm, roll tape, the music watch it go
Loop de loop, were knockin boots fi release
Pressure drop is a must no fuss, I’m a traveler of peace
saddlin’ up, my wild horse with no reigns
gotta keep my head up, or I know, that I soon will be in pain,
no lookin’ back forward this moment in time
Rhyme scheme from the universal coming down to mine

it’s a boomerang
every time I come back
Said the world is a boomerang, whatever you throw out then it come back
It’s a boomerang everytime I come back, yeah the world is a boomerang
Whatever you throw out gonna come back

Verse 2
Inhale Exhale River to the Sea,
Rain cloud wind snow back on me
Jordan to flow down, come back around
Thoughts shape words that make the world seen.
Subtlty balance beam teater totter merrily
Have fun with your gun son daughters hold the key
To your heart meditate, flame from a spark
After dark there is a tunnel funneling the light green
Yellow red in your head street light crazy
Come down to the ground sound let your self breath
unwound livin' just like the world is spinning round
Cyclical solar system planets orbiting profound
it is a Boomerang

every time I come back
Said the world is a boomerang, whatever you throw out then it come back
It’s a boomerang everytime I come back, yeah the world is a boomerang
Whatever you throw out gonna come back
Track Name: If You Don't
If you Don't feel all right, feel all right, feel all right today
You can try again, try again, try again tonight my friend
If you Don't feel all right, feel all right, feel all right tonight
You can try again, try again, try again tomorrow.
Track Name: Christmas Manifesto
Sometimes I am naughty, sometimes I am nice, I am what I am and I don't give a damn even if I gotta play the price.
Santa is the coolest guy in town, like god he always knows what's going down, everybody wants to be his friend, because they know they'll get a gift in the end, but I don't care if I get any presents this year, because love is free, and I'm free to be me.
Track Name: Nightstride
Doin my thing I came across your wing we hit up in the clouds and I could hear you singin
And the sound delight it cold touched my eyes your lips hips and thighs it’s goin’ down tonight
If I don’t loose my couth it comes from my youth I get wild though I’m tame slightly deranged
When the temperature rose I wanted time to stop, take off my clothes and gently touch your skin

It was just a dream but dreams do come true when I was out of my mind but I could taste the blues
of your love bittersweet and then deeply red so sweet I want to cherish your golden cues
With the buzz aromatic of your pheramone sherry wine sweet lips swooned down on mine, we
doin’ the thing that lovers do but I don’t want you to fade out of my life so come and stick with me eternal like super glue … yeah like super glue


One more time lets go down for the money it’s time to get rich sweet bread and honey
Butter me ya little biscuit ‘cos your cuter than that there where you got nasty but I’m still your big bear,
Beware sugar dumplin’ when I get rough it’s really not tough stuff, I really just can’t control
the way you make me feel wild child like an animal though I try to stay tame
You bring it out in me coz we got that game…

I’m in Love, with you now, I’m in love, with you girl
I’m in Love, with you now, I’m in love, with you babe.
Track Name: Slow Song
This is not the time to rush
This is not the time to rush

Whether youre drinkin coffee
Or whether youre drinkin tea
Doesn’t matter if you’re high or low
Wherever you be

This is not the time to rush
This is not the time to rush

This isn’t the time to get angry
This isn’t the time to fight
Everybody bring it back to the one
This is the time to unite

This is not the time to rush
This is not the time to rush

No matter if you’re with your loved ones
No matter if you’re with yourself
Matter if you’re with your family
This ones for your health

This is not the time to rush
This is not the time to rush

You can stop for a minute
You can stop for a day
Give yourself a chance to take a breathe
And recooperate

This is not the time to rush
This is not the time to rush
This is not the time to rush
This is not the time to rush
