Marley, Man



I'm going to have the lyrics tatooed to my back and painted on my car.


Redemption Song

Old pirates, yes, they rob I;
Sold I to the merchant ships,
Minutes after they took I
From the bottomless pit.
But my hand was made strong
By the 'and of the Almighty.
We forward in this generation
Triumphantly.
Won't you help to sing
These songs of freedom? -
'Cause all I ever have:
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs.

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
None but ourselves can free our minds.
Have no fear for atomic energy,
'Cause none of them can stop the time.
How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look? Ooh!
Some say it's just a part of it:
We've got to fulfill de book.

Won't you help to sing
These songs of freedom? -
'Cause all I ever have:
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs.
----
Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
None but ourselves can free our mind.
Wo! Have no fear for atomic energy,
'Cause none of them-a can-a stop-a the time.
How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look?
Yes, some say it's just a part of it:
We've got to fulfill de book.
Won't you help to sing
Dese songs of freedom? -
'Cause all I ever had:
Redemption songs -
All I ever had:
Redemption songs:
These songs of freedom,
Songs of freedom.


Bob Marley


I beg your pardon people, but it is a full howling-of-a-moon this night. Bear with me.

Why did the chicken cross the road?

To get to the other side, people of Los Angeles, not to get a false sense of superiority by making cars screech to a halt and drivers tremble with fear or anger.
I don't know who empowered the pedestrians of this town, but they have created wide-eyed foolish monsters who might wind up falling victim to a motor vehicle operator who is not as sharp as myself (taking a bow.) I understand you have the "right" of way but if I can' t see you when you dart out into the street like, Bambi, your "rights" will be snatched away from you as well as your ability to walk. Or if you should have the misfortune of exercising your "rights" when the Where's the Beef? lady is behind the wheel of a big 1985 Cadillac.....You may lose your life. It's not worth it. Just wait until the coast is clear and then walk, not crawl, saunter or creep, across the damn street. Jeesh!

Modeling after a chicken, might just save your life!
