Gentleman - New Day

You got to hold your faith now
Fi reach Mount Zion gate now
And you better keep it real,
No bother with the fake now
No time fi stand wait now
Galong and get things straight now
Better to be early righteous people
Than to be late now

Things in life a tek time
Can't get lost from you a follow the signs
Fire 'pon dem drugs and dem guns and dem convicious mind
And I and I step 'pon crime
Right ya now me bun badman and badmind
Nuff a dem can't even walk a straight line
Your sister need love and your bredda need love
And it took like you left that behind
Words and sound combine
Haffi give thanks fi the power of divine
Lost in search of the big goldmine
And inna darkness blind man a lead blind
With no limitation I man feel fine
Living on the edge 'cause Jah love it is mine
And as they blaspheme and plat and scheme
I man still see Jah wonders and signs

Rise up with the day
I do things in my own way
And me nuh inna your hearsay
'Cause dis ya shepherd nuh go astray
Now me gone 'pon the highway
'Cause man a clear like x-ray
And me nuh inna your leh leh
And joy when dis ya tune a play

Can't lek things what you nuh know
Got to find out first which way to go
And you can't exercise no form of genocide
Inna the fast lane that you a go
If a Jah Jah man you want overthrow
Inna sinking ship you a row
'Cause he will cut you off and he will mash you down
Like the tide that ebb and flow
Weed and tears must grow
Until the time of harvest we know
Many a call but the chosen a few
And the Almighty God a say so
Man haffi go meditate and tek it slow
Riding high when you should deh 'pon the low
And you can't flop fast if you stick to your task
And the flowers inna your garden will grow

Rise up with the day
I do things in my own way
And me nuh inna your hearsay
'Cause dis ya shepherd nuh go astray
Now me gone 'pon the highway
'Cause man a clear like x-ray
And me nuh inna your leh leh
And joy when dis ya tune a play

Rise up with the day
I do things in my own way
And me nuh inna your hearsay
'Cause dis ya shepherd nuh go astray
Now me gone 'pon the highway
'Cause man a clear like x-ray
And me nuh inna your leh leh
And joy when dis ya tune a play

Stop play the fool and attend your classes
Nothing you a see you must want glasses
Sit down and complain and then you perplex fi flex
So your tribulation never passes
We living inna world full jackasses
Every day dem get up and a ball 'bout dem crosses
And dem standing at the gate and the whole a dem a wait
But the faith is seems like dem last it

You got to hold your faith now
Fi reach Mount Zion gate now
And you better keep it real,
No bother with the fake now
No time fi stand wait now
Galong and get things straight now
Better to be early righteous people
Than to be late now

You got to hold your faith now
Fi reach Mount Zion gate now
And you better keep it real,
No bother with the fake now
No time fi stand wait now
Galong and get things straight now
Better to be early righteous people
Than to be late now

Rise up with the day
I do things in my own way
And me nuh inna your hearsay
'Cause dis ya shepherd nuh go astray
Now me gone 'pon the highway
'Cause man a clear like x-ray
And me nuh inna your leh leh
And joy when dis ya tune a play

Rise up with the day
I do things in my own way
And me nuh inna your hearsay
'Cause dis ya shepherd nuh go astray
Now me gone 'pon the highway
'Cause man a clear like x-ray
And me nuh inna your leh leh
And joy when dis ya tune a play
