Some a gorgon-a, some a hooligan-a, some a guine-gog-a In this 'ere rat race, yeah! Rat race! I'm singin' that When the cat's away, The mice will play. Political voilence fill ya city, ye-ah! Don't involve rasta in your say say; Rasta don't work for no c.i.a. Rat race, rat race, rat race! rat race, i'm sayin', When you think is peace and safety: A sudden destruction. Collective security for surety, ye-ah!
Don't forget your history, Know your destiny, In the abundance of water, The fool is thirsty. Rat race, rat race, rat race!
