Jobless people starving babies spreading
Over the land
More oppression to the have nots is how you
Play your hand
More world fighting is the writing from those
Say they know
And if that's true we know just who
You'll be picking to go

But the beat you are playing to what Jah is
Saying is wrong
And we do recommend that you stop before
It's too far gone

And I just got to say
You're playing us too close

We in the ghettos
You're playing us too close
The jobless and the hungry
You're playing us too close
Filling up more and more with Frustration
You're playing us too close
We're losing our patience

So take heed and do let it be known that
I've told you today
You're playing us much too close yea

All the teaching of JAH bible you don't
Want to obey
But you're writing your own ticket to the price
You will pay
Us you hold hock but the drawback is not
To us alone
Time will make you too a victim before you
See the wrong

And the melody that you are playing is
In the wrong key
For Jah's choirs that sings out to all live
In world harmony

And I just got to say
You're playing us too close
We in the ghettos
You're playing us too close
Red black white brown and yellow poor people
You're playing us too close
The babies are crying
You're playing us too close
Good people are dying

So take heed and do let it be known that
I've told you today
Jah say you're playing us much too close

Now when I was just a little boy my grandfather
Use to say to me,
