Simplicity

This song is by Sizzla and appears on the album Da Real Thing (2002).

Black people keep your heads up
Emperor Selassie l bless them
Burning fire never yet stop

Simplisity we use to survive
Many find it difficult because they ignorant and hype
Simplicity we use to survive
Do what you doing properly, that's the way through life
Simplicity we use to survive
Many find it difficult because they ignorant and hard
Simplicity we use to survive
Children, open up your eyes

Is not the one bag of vanity
Nor the animosity
Nor the hypocrisy, nor democracy
Is not the labba-labba
Nor the back-stabber
Nor the vampire evilous desire
Is just a meditation of my heart
Pure and conscious thought
Be overstanding and be smart
Listen to the children speak the word and shine the light in the dark, yah

Simplicity me use to survive
Many find it difficult because they ignorant and die
Simplicity me use to survive
Do what you doing properly... that's the way through life
Simplicity I use to survive
Children, open up your eyes
Simplicity me use to survive
Burn Pharisees and Scribes

Ooh, yeah
Ah find yuh wrong bro, dat fi pause
Praise Ras Tafari and give a worthy cause
Give us all the blessing, give us all reward
To help the poor ah find it easy when them find it hard

Simplicity I use to survive
Many find it difficult because they ignorant and die
Simplicity l use to survive
I say live and love yuh life

Keep doing what you doing, don't you grumble
Seed what you sow is what yuh reap, so be humble
Know what yuh doing, yuh never stumble
Burn down Rome, I sight dem crumble
Lead the way, lead the way with the word what l speak
Never must you stray, hail the King in the East

Be overstanding, ah tell yuh to be smart
Listen to the children when they speak and shine the light in the dark
