Those Days Are No More

Written By: Garland Rowe pka G-Whizz

Intro
Jah know star every day I and I rise
All I can hear is bad news we waan hear some good news
Boy me a tell you a bare war a gwan and rumors of war
And you know say things wasn’t always like this, things wasn’t always like this

I remember the days children use to play
And we didn’t have to worry if gunshot would stray
I remember the days we could go our ways
And no one would try to rob us take we things away
I remember the days, peace and love would reign
There was never so much war a that my grand mama say
I remember the days oh yes I remember the days but

Those days are no more those days are no more no, no
Cause all I see is killing and corruption and the crime rate start to soar
The good old days are no more those days are no more no, no
Cause all I see is looting and shooting everything is so out of control

Yo so little youth a weh you do that for a weh you do that for
A weh see innocent people and a shoot after
A weh you do that for a weh oonu a do that for
Oonu mentally sick or what
A Babylon a weh you do that for, a weh you do that for
A weh you see the herbs a grow and gone destroy them for
A weh oonu do that for, a weh oonu do that for
Oonu smoking crack or what

Me say the earth waan pure
But first of all free Jah Cure
Ghetto youths pocket empty
See the thing weh name money them waan more
Provide some work make them go store
And when you hear this song don’t you ignore
You will sorry for sure, no more, no more
Mama ban her belly and a bawl her youths them grow to hardcore
Them mix up inna killing boy start and nothing can’t control him oh god

Cause if you give the youths them guns what you expect them to do
There’s no work around what you expect them to do ah aah
Then the tables gonna turn on you the tables gonna turn on you

The good old days are no more those days are no more no, no
Cause all I see is looting and shooting everything is so out of control
Cause when I look around all I see is famine, bombing
Crazy back stabbing and migration a that nuff people planning
But there is no where to run go
The good old days are no more no more
And all the looting, shooting children are dying
And no one seem to care people are crying
Where did the love go
The good old days are no more

Those days are no more those days are no more no, no
Cause all I see is killing and corruption and the crime rate start to soar
The good old days are no more those days are no more no, no
Cause all I see is looting and shooting everything is so out of control

Tired, we tired, we tired, we tired, we tired, we tired, we tired, we tired, we tired, we tired
We tired, we tired, we tired, we tired, we tired, we tired, we tired, we tired, we tired, we tired
We tired, we tired, we tired, we tired, we tired, we tired, we tired, we tired, we tired, we tired
War rumors of war woh we tired oh so tired woh, woh, woh, woh, woh, waah
