Little man you're crying I know why you're blue someone took your kiddie car away
Better go to sleep now little man you've had a busy day
Johnny won your marbles tell you what we'll do dad'll get you new ones right away
Better go to sleep now little man you've had a busy day
You've been playing soldier the battle has been won the enemy is out of sight
Come along there soldier put away your gun the war is over for tonight
Time to stop your scheming time your day was through
Can't you hear the bugle softly say
Time you should be dreaming little man you've had a busy day
Little man you've had a busy day

Mommy had. A little baby.
There he is. Fast asleep.
He's just. A little plaything.
Why not. Wake him up?
Cute. Cute. Little baby.
Little pee pee. Little toes.
Now he's comin' to me.
Crawl across. The kitchen floor.

Baby, baby, please let me hold him
I wanna make him stay up all night
Sister, sister, he's just a plaything
We wanna make him stay up all night
Yeah we do

See him drink. From a bottle.
See him eat. From a plate.
Cute. Cute. As a button.
Don't you wanna make him. Stay up late.
And we're having fun. With no money.
Little smile. On his face.
Don't cha' love. The little baby.
Don't you want to make him. Stay up late.

Hush, little baby, don't say a word, Mama's gonna buy you a mockingbird
And if that mockingbird won't sing, Mama's gonna buy you a diamond ring
And if that diamond ring turns brass, Mama's gonna buy you a looking glass
And if that looking glass gets broke, Mama's gonna buy you a billy goat
And if that billy goat won't pull, Mama's gonna buy you a cart and bull
And if that cart and bull turn over, Mama's gonna buy you a dog named Rover
And if that dog named Rover won't bark, Mama's gonna buy you a horse and cart
And if that horse and cart break down...You'll still be the sweetest little baby in town

Eternal Consumption Engine
Every time I get a little bit bored
Eternal Consumption Engine
Head to the Wally-Mart store
Eternal Consumption Engine
Livin' high on the greasy hog
Eternal Consumption Engine
As long as they don't deport my job
Eternal Consumption Engine
Cause Everything's is made in China
Eternal Consumption Engine
Everything nowadays is made in China

Dear God, I'm trying hard to reach you, Dear God, I see your face in all I do
Sometimes it's so hard to believe in? But God, I know you have your reasons...

[Black Thought]
They said he's busy, hold the line please, Call me crazy, I thought maybe he could mind read?
Who does the blind lead? Show me a sign please? If everything is made in China, are we Chinese?
And why do haters separate us like we siamese? Technology turning the planet into zombies
Everybody all in everybody's dirty laundry, Acid rain, earthquakes, hurricane, tsunamis
Terrorists, crime sprees, assaults and robberies, Cops yelling "stop freeze," shoot him before he try to leave
Air quality so foul, I gotta try to breathe, Endangered species, and we running out of trees
If I could hold the world in the palm of these hands, I would probably do away with these anomalies
Everybody checking for the new award nominees, Wars and atrocities, look at all the poverty
Ignoring the prophecies, more beef than broccoli, Corporate monopoly, weak world economy
Stock market toppling, mad marijuana, OxyContin and Klonopin, everybody out of it...

[Monsters of Folk]
Well I've been thinking about, And I've been breaking it down, Without an answer
I know I'm thinking out loud, But if your love's still around, Why do we suffer? Why do we suffer?...

[Black Thought]
Yeah, it's still me, one of your biggest fans, I get off work, right back to work again
I probably need to go ahead and have my head exam, Look how they got me on the Def Jam payment plan
Well, I'm in the world of entertainment and, Trying to keep a singing man sane for the paying fans
If I don't make it through the night, slight change of plans, Harp strings, angel wings and praying hands
Lord, forgive me for my shortcomings? For going on tour and ignoring the court summons
All I'm trying to do is live life to the fullest, They sent my daddy to you in a barrage of bullets
Why is the world ugly when you made it in your image? And why is living life such a fight to the finish?
For this high percentage, when the sky's the limit, A second is a minute, every hour's infinite...

[Monsters of Folk]
Dear God, I'm trying hard to reach you, Dear God, I see your face in all I do...
Sometimes, it's so hard to believe it

Dear God, the only thing I ask of you
Is to hold her when I'm not around
When I'm much too far away
We all need that person who can be true to you
But I left her when I found her
And now I wish I'd stayed
'Cause I'm lonely and I'm tired
I'm missing you again, oh no...
Once again

Dear God, hope you get the letter? And I pray you can make it better down here
I don't mean a big reduction in the price of beer? But all the people that you made in your image
See them starving on their feet, 'Cause they don't get enough to eat from God...I can't believe in you

Dear God, sorry to disturb you, But I feel that I should be heard loud and clear
We all need a big reduction in amount of tears, And all the people that you made in your image
See them fighting in the street, 'Cause they can't make opinions meet about God...I can't believe in you

Did you make disease and the diamond blue? Did you make mankind after we made you? And the Devil too?!

Dear God, don't know if you noticed but, Your name is on a lot of quotes in this book
And us crazy humans wrote it, you should take a look, And all the people that you made in your image
Still believing that junk is true? Well I know it ain't, and so do you...

Dear God, I can't believe in, I don't believe, I won't believe in heaven or hell
No saints, no sinners, no devil as well? No pearly gates, no thorny crown...
You're always letting us humans down, The wars you bring, the babes you drown...

Those lost at sea and never found, And it's the same the whole world 'round
The hurt I see helps to compound, The Father, Son and Holy Ghost, Is just somebody's unholy hoax,
And if you're up there you'll perceive? That my heart's here upon my sleeve, If there's one thing I don't believe in?...
It's you, Dear God

Babyshambler says:
Cain slew Abel, Seth knew not why
For if the children of Israel suppose to multiply
Why must any of the children die?
So he asked the Lord and the Lord said

"Man means nothing he means less to me
Than the lowliest cactus flower or the humblest yucca tree
He chases round this desert 'cause he thinks that's where I'll be
That's why I love mankind"

I recoil in horror from the foulness of thee
From the squalor and the filth and the misery
How we laugh up here in Heaven, prayers you offer me
That's why I love mankind

The Christians and the Jews were having a jamboree
The Buddhists and the Hindus joined on satellite TV
They picked their four greatest priests
And they began to speak

They said "Lord the plague is on the world
Lord no man is free
The temples that we built to you have tumbled into the sea
Lord, if you won't take care of us
Won't you please please let us be?"

And the Lord said
And the Lord said

"I burn down your cities, how blind you must be
I take from you, your children and you say how blessed are we
You all must be crazy to put your faith in me
That's why I love mankind, you really need me
That's why I love mankind"

Judgement days have come
And righteous man shall stand
Unworthy they shall perish
They shall burn in fire
Hark! Words of the Prophet Isaiah
Behold! Take heed mankind
Hark! Words of the Prophet Isaiah
Behold! They weep

Wages of sin is death
Gift of Jah is eternal life
Mankind - you a sinner
Mankind - you shall pay for your false transgression
That's why I say, oh Lord
Woe unto you
Woe unto you, I say
Woe unto you
Woe unto you

Dash it weh with the roots controller, y'hear
Rub a dub style, killah!

Babyshambler says:
As down the glen came McAlpine's men
With their shovels slung behind them
'Twas in the pub they drank the sub
And up in the spike you'll find them

They sweated blood and they washed down mud
With pints and quarts of beer
And now we're on the road again
With McAlpine's fusiliers

I stripped to the skin with D@rky Flynn
Way down upon the Isle of Grain
With the Horseface Toole then I knew the rule
No money if you stop for rain

McAlpine's God was a well filled hod
Your shoulders cut to bits and seared
And woe to he who looks for tea
With McAlpine's fusiliers

Their mark on this land is still seen and still laid
The way for a commerce where vast fortunes were made
The supply of an empire where the sun never set
Which is now deep in darkness, but the railway's there yet.

1277 express to heaven, speeding along like dynamite
1277 express to heaven, rumbles the steel like a dogfight
You caught me in it's spell
Trying to leave but you know darn well
The heat from below can burn your eyes out

Take the National Express when your life's in a mess? It'll make you smile
All human life is here? From the feeble old dear to the screaming child
From the student who knows that to have one of those? Would be suicide
To the family man, Manhandling the pram with paternal pride...

And everybody sings "bab, bab, bada, bab, bab, bada, bab, bab, bada
Bab, bab, bada, bab, bab, bada, bab, bab, bada, baa..."
A-huh, Alright, We're go-ing where the air is freeeeeeeeee...!

On the National Express there's a jolly hostess, Selling crisps and tea
She'll provide you with drinks and theatrical winks, For a sky-high fee
Mini-Skirts were in style when she danced down the aisle, Back in '63 (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
But it's hard to get by when your @r$e is the size, Of a small country!

And everybody sings "bab, bab, bada, bab, bab, bada, bab, bab, bada,
Bab, bab, bada, bab, bab, bada, bab, bab, bada, baa..."
A-huh, Alright, We're go-ing where the air is freeeeeeeeee...! Tomorrow belongs to me!

When you're sad and feeling blue? With nothing better to do?
Don't just sit there feeling stressed? Take a trip on the National Express!
National Express, National Express, National Express, National Express, National Express...(fade)...

Johnny Bee says:
I knew she was a feline
She moved with ease and grace
Her green eyes they held mystery

No emotion on her face
She speaks her lips are kissing
The air around her face
I don't always understand her
But I love her air and grace

The European female she is here
The European female's here
We'll be together for a thousand years
And do you really fear
That you might fall

I saw her in the Strasse
And in the Rue as well
Pursued her in the high street
She had me in her spell

I wanna take a walk
I wanna take a walk
I wanna take a walk along Action Strasse
I wanna take a walk
I wanna take a walk
I wanna take a walk along Action Strasse

Her eyes, telling lies, paradise
She said words to me tenderly

The man inside, he was selling me a bride
Wake up in the morning on Action Strasse
A one-eyed cat who was very fond of that
Cruising up the middle of Action Strasse
Everybody make for the Peppermint Shake
Everybody gonna have a good time

Her eyes, telling lies, paradise
She said words to me tenderly

I still remember 'cause I can't forget
The painted lady, she got me yet
She looked so neat and sound so sweet
When the light shines bright on Midnight Street
And everybody make for the Peppermint Shake
Wanna take a walk along Action Strasse (Strasse)

Here Iam,strolling down Atlantic Avenue
With the sunlight in my eyes
Here I am and there's nothing I would rather do
When I want some peace of mind

Leave the smoke of Rio behind
As the evening starts to fly
I wanna be with the ocean breeze
Where the mountains kiss the sky (AWB)

Strolling along minding my own business
Well there goes a girl and a half
She's got me going up and down
She's got me going up and down
It's only your imagination
Walking on the beaches looking at the peaches

Now I'm livin'
out here on the beach,
but those seagulls are
still out of reach.
I went to the radio interview,
but I ended up alone
at the microphone.

Pick yourself up off the side of the road, With your elevator bones and your whip-flash tones
Members only, hyponotizers, Move through the room like ambulance drivers
Shine your shoes with your microphone blues, Hirsutes with your parachute flutes
Passing the dutchie from coast to coast, Let the man Gary Wilson rock the most...

Where it's at? I got two turntables and a microphone, Where it's at? I got two turntables and a microphone

It was a cool and lovely breezy afternoon
(How does it feel when you've got no herb?)
You could feel it 'cause it was the month of June
(If you got no herb you will walk an' talk)
So I lef' my gate and went out for a walk
As I pass the dreadlocks' camp I hear them say
(How do dey sing when you heard dem sing?)

Pass the kutchie pon the lef' hand side
Pass the kutchie pon the lef' hand side
It a go bun, it a go dung, Jah know

Open your eyes, you'll get a surprise, evil is sweeping
the nation,
It's killing your sons and what merely stuns is
Your daughters are out for sensation
When they turn on their morals are gone
They don't really know what they're doing
It's a teenage malaise, a dangerous craze
Leading their bodies to ruin
Reefer madness has stolen all their souls
Reefer madness is right out of control
Evil reefer madness is a mind eating troll

Marijuana monster is stalking the streets
He knows what he's up to, he knows what he eats
He gobbles your body and spits out your mind
If you don't believe it then you must be blind
Reefer madness has stolen all their souls
Reefer madness is right out of control
Evil reefer madness is a mind eating troll

Marijuana's real enough
Marijuana's real enough
Marijuana's real enough

One night I was smoking dope, when I looked at
my hand, and I saw that I had eleven fingers,
one of these fingers fell from my hand,
onto the carpet, crawled across the floor,
Up on my shelf, inside my piggy bank and stole
my stash, stole my stash.
Reefer madness has stolen their souls
Reefer madness is right out of control
Evil reefer madness is a mind eating troll.
