Prince Ital Joe & Marky Mark: United

UNITED
/Prince Ital Joe & Marky Mark/

[Chorus:]
Maybe one day we'll be united
And our love won't be divided
Maybe one day we'll be united
And our love won't be divided

[Chorus]

If love a-was a thing a me say money could a-buy
The rich man would a-live a me say poor man would die
If freedom was a thing they would a-keep upon the earth
Happiness a-would abundant, unity would give birth
In a hungry nation, yes you get a hungry people
That is mentally cripple and a kinda always wrong
Gunshot and fire in a-South Africa
And the youth them a-suffer in a-Dominica

Peace! I gotta plea for call
I see too many kids and they simply falling
In the streets, it's strife, a waste of a life
'Cause he died by the bullet or he's stabbed with a knife
But yo, it ain't no way to go
You can't kill the next man just to get the dough
We gotta fight tonight but we gotta fight right
Can't fight for the dough, we gotta fight to unite

[Chorus]

In America the problem take over
Robber shot Peter Tosh in Kingston, Jamaica
Me not joke, me not play, me not just talk
Respect Abu-Baka, respect Mandela
Bob Marley, intelligent Rasta
Singing for world peace is Mr. Stevie Wonder
If you live by the gun a-you will perish by the God
And when Jah-Jah time come in Babylon them have we run

We need O-N-E L-O-V-E, U-N-I-T-Y, before we all die
But you don't listen, you don't understand
Still kicking the bullshit, tryin' to be the man
Why you wanna go and do your old piece
'Cause we're all rough and we're from the streets
You gotta go against the man with ya corporation
Get an education to rebuild the nation

[Chorus] [2x]
