Lyrics

Get It

Written By: Bryan Grant

KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE THING MAN IF A THAT YOU WANT
‘LIFT IT UP AGAIN’ AND NEVER MAKE IT SLANT
SET IT ON THE PRIZE AND NEVER SAY YOU CAN’T
THE WAY TO DO IT EVERY TIME
KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE THING IF IS THAT YOU WANT
LIFT IT UP AGAIN AND NEVER MAKE IT SLANT
SET IT ON THE PRIZE AND NEVER SAY YOU CAN’T I TELL YOU EVERY TIME
GET IT IN YOUR HEAD THERE’S MORE THAN BREAD
WATCH EVERY WORD WHEN I TELL YOU JUST TO
GET IT IN YOUR HEAD THERE’S MORE THAN BREAD
WHATEVER’S ON YOUR MIND YES

GET IT GET IT
I TELL YOU EVERYTIME AND YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND NO
GET IT GET IT
WHATEVER IS ON THE MIND IT CONTROLS THE MAN YES
GET IT GET IT
I TELL YOU EVERYTIME AND YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND NO

LIVE EVERY TIME BY EVERY WORD THAT PROCEED AND THE WIND AND THE WEEDS I SAY

EYES ON THE THING MAN IF A THAT YOU WANT
YU HEAR ME TELL YU! NEVER GALLIVANT
BE ALWAYS ON THE RISE - BETTER EVERYTIME
DON’T BE SURPRISED WHEN THE THING YOU NEVER GAVE YOUR ALL
IS NOT AROUND TO FIND YOU WHEN YOU MAKE A FALL
…TELL A BUNCH OF LIES BECAUSE YOU MISS YU CALL -
YOU WASTE AWAY YOUR TIME
GET IT IN YOUR HEAD THERE’S MORE THAN BREAD
“GWAAN EAT A FOOD” BUT REMEMBER JUST TO
GET IT IN YOUR HEAD THERE’S MORE THAN BREAD
WHATEVER IS ON YOUR MIND YES

Rock And Come In

Written By: Bryan Grant

Intro. Then mi naa show yu man!
Come ina the Dance Man – seen!

Now put your hands in the air if you really don’t care
because you’ve earned your share,
and you don’t give one heck about no damn nike-air.
You do your thing anyhow, anywhere.
You rock and come ina the dance any way how you want
because you’ve paid your fare, drinking hennesey or is it red-stripe beer?
In your ‘lenghts pants’ or ‘Rockawear.’

‘Cause if the love ina yu heart yu shout, yeah yeah!
An if yu naa cuss no claat yu shout, yeah yeah!
If everything sparkling clean, tell me what the brand thing mean.
If you expose to you heart you shout, Yeah yeah!
Or if you well clad ina yu claat yu shout Yeah yeah!
Oh yeah, tell me what the massive them say.

Dance a keep ina Mandeville,
you wanna run in something comfortable up the hill, yeah!
A ‘Nanny’ lef after you’ve paid the bills you wanna sip a ‘babba-roots’ and take a ‘chill-pill’ – yo!
Make sure you’re ready for the spill, ‘cause ina dancehall style its gonna be ‘juggling – Juggling’ till you hear a voice saying;

That if the love inna yu heart yu shout, yeah yeah!
Repeat song.
