THE WAY OF THE WORLD
By Gypsy

Spoken words: In this life of trying to please people, it leaves you without the choice of pleasing yourself.

Life was meant to live, it was made so easy
It was meant to do things you want to do
But some people think you must follow their direction
And you have to do what they want you to
Them alone have the blueprint for living
The things you should do, them alone must tell
And if you should follow in their direction
They make your life complicated like hell.

Somebody going to love the things that you say
Somebody going to hate you for saying it that way
Somebody going to love the things that you do
Somebody will hate you for doing them too
Somebody going to love the way that you look
Somebody going to find you look like a mook
Nothing you could do, it's out your control
That is just the way of the world.

You see, if you trying to please everybody
Something wrong with you, you have to be mad
Take a walk to the sun, that might be more easy
But trying to please everybody is hard
You might just end up like little Jack Horner
Everybody pulling you in a different corner
At no time in life would you be at ease
If everybody you trying to please.

Somebody going to find that you are real brilliant
Somebody going that that you have real class
Somebody going to find that you are a genius
Somebody going to find that you're a real ass
Somebody going to find that you are kindhearted
Somebody going to find you callous and cold
Nothing you could do, life must take its toll
That is just the way of the world.

This world's made up of over seven billion
You must understand that you are just one
Nothing that you started is ever finished
Nothing you think you finish is ever done
Somebody always there to criticise it
They know exactly what you should do
This pleasing business so complicated
Sometimes in life you can't even please you.

You just tell yourself you ent saying nothing
But something inside you say you must talk
You just tell yourself from here you ent moving
But something inside you tell you to walk
You hungry like hell, you going and eat something
But something inside you say you too fat
Nothing you could do, you can't even please you
'Cause the world is made up like that.

Somebody going to love the things that you say
Somebody going to hate you for saying it that way
Somebody going to love the things that you do
Somebody will hate you for doing them too
Somebody going to love the way that you look
Somebody going to find you look like a mook
Nothing you could do, it's out your control
That is just the way of the world.

Somebody
Somebody
Somebody
Somebody
Somebody
Somebody
Somebody
Somebody...

A Note From The Gull


Thank you, Gypsy.   

"Patria est communis omnium parens" - Our native land is the common parent of us all. Keep it beautiful, make it even more so.

Blessed is all of creation
Blessed be my beautiful people
Blessed be the day of our awakening
Blessed is my country
Blessed are her patient hills.

Mweh ka allay!

SHADOW SON
By Sharlan Bailey

I do intend to raise hell. Hey!
Wha's mih name? Wait, well hear de jam now.

Lai dai lay dai, ah-boop skip lai dai
Lai dai lay dai, ah-boop skip lai dai
Lai dai lay dai, ah-boop skip lai dai
Lai dai lay dai, ah-boop skip lai dai

Sing it now!

Very soon they go fear it
But ah want dem to know dem who start it, yeah
Why you feel you could stress this one?
You ent seeing I is Shadow son?
Ah hard like banga, ah don't want you to wonder
Why you feel you could stress this one?
You ent seeing I is Shadow son?

Who am I? I'm Mister Bailey son
Every beat come together with precision
The father of all punks, tell the Pentagon
A walking pot of gold, tell the leprechauns
Is it mih blood line is the intention?
Or the fact ah doctor beats like a physician?
I want bass like a wave from a religion
Here comes another one like tradition.

Ah just can't fight it, ah got music falling off my eyelids
That's right, ---- I should be knighted or this journey is righted
I make yuh place go mad
Picking up points like a grocery card
And every way ah go, dey say this Rasta hard
Because I belong to the House of Music

And very soon they go fear it
But I want dem to know dem who start it, yeah.
Why you feel you could stress this one?
You ent seeing I is Shadow son?
Ah hard like banga, you don't have to wonder, I am telling you
Why you feel you could stress this one?
You ent seeing I is Shadow son?

Thanks for the support you gave to me
You love me like a roti shop on Divali
To all the haters, you are where you supposed to be
Googling, texting Who the hell is he?
Who the hell is me? ---- you know dam well
Mih flow like heaven and mih daddy is the king from hell
You know who I is since I touch the mike
Watch me good, I's what a genius looks like!

Some folks they get mad when they take dey pill
So they jump on a stage only talking kill
I'm ten percent human, ninety percent skill
And I possess the kind of talent you doh leave on will.
Some people riching, some people bitching
Some people kicksing, some artistes bitching
Some Road March fixing, some dj's mixing
I's the kind of artiste rock yuh block on a Crick's tin.

Lai dai lay dai, ah-boop skip lai dai
Lai dai lay dai, ah-boop skip lai dai
Lai dai lay dai, ah-boop skip lai dai
Lai dai lay dai, ah-boop skip lai dai

Ah very soon they go fear it
But I want dem to know dem who start it, yeah
Why you feel you could stress this one?
You ent seeing I is Shadow son?
I hard like banga, I doh want you to wonder
Why you feel you could stress this one?
You ent seeing I is Shadow son?

Up in mih ears and dey talking loud
Up in mih and dey talking proud
Only sending these chills up my spine
Never even hear dem compose one line
Never hear dem compose a melody
But they want to advise me?
I am musically sick
They used to beat me with music stick.

Ah very soon they go fear it
But I want dem to know dem who start it, yeah
Why you feel you could stress this one?
You ent seeing I is Shadow son?
Ah hard like banga, Ah don't want you to wonder
Why you feel you could stress this one?
You ent seeing I is Shadow son?
Ah very soon they go fear it
I want dem to know, I want dem to know
Why you feel you could stress this one?
You ent seeing I is Shadow son?
Ah hard like banga, Ah only come to remember
Why you feel you could stress this one
You ent seeing I is Shadow son?
