Tony Rebel — Success lyrics

-P. Barrett-

Once more, the guerilla a talk
And you know when me talk me talk from the heart
'Cause a so me a do it from the start
Otherwise I can't, watch this

Chorus:
Said every man haffi pay them dues
And every man haffi pay them tax
'Cause that's where success is at
And when you climb on the ladder
And you want reach the top
More time you end up inna stumbling block
A said serious something
A no joke I a crack
This is a chronological fact
Me no only want you dance
Me no only want you rock
Me want you listen what Rebel a chat
Say, a no no if a no no but a the only way out
You haffi work for the food what fi get inna you mouth
Step up up up up up in the right route
Prepare yourself Lord fi deal with the drought
'Cause it come from all angle, come from all 'bout
If a no the east, man a the west
If a no the north or south
But you fi galang galang without doubt

Chorus

'Cause every successful man will tell you say
A no today them a try, neither yesterday
But a the substance of faith make them getaway
And now a honor and glory fi see where them deh
So no give up the race when you inna the middle
Just remember a God a pilot you
'Cause no man mi know weh no go through struggle
But you must remember, good is over evil

Chorus

'Cause struggle it no new, long time it a go on
Long, long, long, long, long, long before I born
You haffi go through burry burry thistle and thorn
But after a storm there must be a calm
Today I see and yesterday me saw
Success is always governed by law
So if you want progress without problems
Just look for the laws and try apply them

Chorus

Nuff want go to heaven yet no want die
Them no want grow feather, yet them want fly
Them no want cut the tree, no want it fi spread
No want bus sweat, but want nyam the most bread
Can't work, can't work, that's why things so red
Unno fi you stop point the finger and do little instead

Chorus

So hold tight, steadfast, God alone can't bear the cross
Progress no cheap you must pay the cost
You haffi go through ticki ticki before the green grass
Chorus
The height that great men reach and kept
It never just come immediate
A true them work hard, a true them sweat
Jah Jah guide them through the valley of
The shadow of death
Is not a quiz you know what it is
Rebel just a talk figurative
Is just the life, weh we a live
We haffi turn 'roun the negs make them turn positive

Chorus

Say, a no no if a no no but a the only way out
You hatfi work for the food what fi get inna you mouth
Step up up up up up in the right route
Prepare yourself Lord fi deal with the drought
'Cause it come from all angle, come from all 'bout
If a no the east, man a the west
If a no the north or south
But you fi galang galang without doubt

Chorus
