Lloyd Lovindeer - Serious Times

These are serious times
Can't you see the signs?
The writing is on the wall
We're riding for a fall
Ooh yeah, now

Everywhere you go all you can hear
Is weeping and wailing
Some wanna go to Africa
But there's no ship a sailing
People can get no food
Prices keep on rising
Children having children
Man, that's not surprising
Oh no, in these serious times

Who's gonna rule the world?
The people wanna know
Everybody say: "I will, I will, I will!"
But to which one do we go? You see now
The communists say, I!
The socialists say, I!
The capitalists say, I!
The Rastaman says I and I
In these serious times

Ooh yeah now!
Merchandisers selling goods
But they can get no buyer
Poor people suffering
Living down to the wire
Politicians promising
The whole a them are liars
Watch them when the right time comes
They bound to catch afire
Nuh true.. in these serious times

Men will run to the rock for a hiding place
In these serious times
Men will run to the rock for a hiding place
In these serious times

In these serious times
Jobs are hard to find
Yet to our dislike.. everybody gone on strike
Ooh yeah now!

Look the firemen, strike!
Look the teachers them, strike!
The bus drivers them, strike!
The social workers them, strike!
Every striking worker strike soon
Lightning's gonna strike
Thunder gonna roll
Fire gonna burn them, burn them, burn them
Time will take its toll, ooh yeah, now

People will be running, running helter skelter
They'll run this way
They'll run that way
They can get no shelter

Poor people suffering
Living down to the wire
Politicians promising
The whole a them are liars
Watch them when the right time comes
They bound to catch afire
Nuh true, in these serious times

Oh yeah, oh yeah.. right on, right on

Babylon war, won't get me down
Wicked men will fade away
Babylon war, won't get me down
Wicked men will fade away..
