                1. JUDGE NOT  [Bob Marley]
    
                Don't you look at me so smug
                And say I goin' bad,
                Who are you to judge me,
                And the life I live?
                I know that I'm not perfect
                And that I don't claim to be,
                So before you point your fingers,
                Make sure your hands are clean.
    
                Judge not,
                Before you judge yourself!
                Judge not,
                If you're not ready for judgement!  Oh-oh-oh!
    
                The road of life is rocky,
                And you may stumble too:
                So while you talk about me,
                Someone else is judging you.

                Judge not,
                Before you judge yourself!
                Judge not,
                If you're not ready for judgement!        And I just can't tell the raindrops
                From my teardrops
                Falling down my face.
                Mm, look at it, yeah!
                It isn't really raindrops.
    
                (I'm still waiting)  Teardrops falling down my face.
                (I'm still waiting)
                (I'm still waiting)  I'm still waitin'.
                (I'm still waiting)  Yes, I will.
    
                I wait in the rain, I wait in the sun.
                Please, relieve me from these pains,
                Oh pains, just pains.
                I love you, yes I do.
                But tell me, do you really love me, too?  Mm-mm.  Mm.
                2. ONE CUP OF COFFEE  [Bob Marley] 
    
                One cup of coffee, then I'll go;
                Though I just dropped by to let you know
                That I'm leaving you tomorrow;
                I'll cause you no more sorrow:
                One cup of coffee, then I'll go.
    
                I brought the money like the lawyer said to do,
                But it won't replace the 'eartache I caused you;
                It won't take the place of lovin' you, I know,
                So one cup of coffee, then I'll go.

                Tell the kids I came last night
                And kissed them while they slept;
                Make my coffee sweet and warm
                Just the way you used to lie in my arms.
    
                I brought the money like the lawyer said to do,
                But it won't replace the 'eartache I caused you;
                It won't take the place of lovin' you, I know,
                So one cup of coffee, then I'll go;
                One cup of coffee, then I'll go;
                One cup of coffee, then I'll go.        /fadeout/

                Simmer down: you lickin' too hot, so!
                Simmer down: soon you'll get dropped, so!
                Simmer down: can you hear what I say?
                Simmer down: simmer won't you - why won't you -
                   why won't you simmer down?

                A-go run him belly, so:
                Simmer down: oh, control your temper!
                Simmer down: or the battle will be hotter

                Simmer down: for the battle will be hotter;
                Simmer down: and-a you won't get no supper.
                Simmer down: and you know you bound to suffer
                Simmer down: simmer - simmer - simmer right down:

                 I'm still waiting;
                 I'm still waiting;
                 I'm still waiting for you,
                 Why, oh why?  Why, oh why?)
    
                I said-a my feet won't keep me up anymore.
                Well, ev'ry little beat my heart beats, girl,

                So why won't you come out to me now, girl?
                Oh, can't you see I'm under your spell?
                But I got to - got to go.
                Why, girl?  Oh why, girl?  Oh!
    
                Wo, my gosh, the rain is fallin',

                (One love)   O Lord, have mercy!
                (One heart)  I said, let's give thanks and praise
                   and I will feel all right.

                Now, let 'em all pass all their dirty remarks (one love);
                There is one question I'd really like to ask (one soul).
                Is there a place for the hopeless sinner,
                Who has hurt all mankind just to save his own?
    
                One love, one heart;
                Let's join together and I'll feel all right.

                Let's give thanks to the Lord and I will feel all right.
    
                Let's join together to fight this holy battle;
                When the Man comes, there will be no, no doom.
                Have pity on those whose chances grows thinner;
                There ain't no hiding place from-a the King from the Lord, yes!
    
                (One love)  Hear my plea!
                (One heart) Oh, let's join together and I'll feel all right.
                (One love)  O Lord, have mercy!
                (One heart) I said-a, let's give thanks and praise
                   and I will feel all right.
                Let's join together and I'll feel all right.

                24. MR BROWN       [Bob Marley]
    
                (Ooh - ooh - ooh - ooh)
                (It's Mr Brown)  Mr Brown is a clown who rides to town in a coffin.
                (Well, here he comes) In the top is ... three rows on top and two
                   inside there.
                Oh, what a confusion!  Ooh, yeah, yeah!
                What a botheration!  Ooh, now, now!
    
                Who is Mr Brown?  I wanna know now!
                He is nowhere to be found.
                From Mandeville to slide-a-ville, coffin runnin' around,
                Upsetting, upsetting, upsetting the town,
                Asking for Mr Brown.
                From Mandeville to slide-a-ville, coffin runnin' around,
                upsetting, upsetting, upsetting the town,
                Asking for Mr Brown.
                I wanna know who (is Mr Brown)?
                Is Mr Brown controlled by remote?
    
                O-o-oh, calling duppy conqueror,
                I'm the ghost-catcher!
                This is your chance, oh big, big Bill bull-bucka,
                Take your chance!  Prove yourself!  Oh, yeah!
    
                Down in parade
                People runnin like a masquerade.
                The police make a raid,
                But the people - oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah - they think it
                   fade.
    
                What a thing in town
                Crows chauffeur-driven around,
                Skankin' as if they had never known
                The man they call "Mr Brown".
    
                I can tell you where he's from now:
                From Mandeville to slide-a-ville, coffin runnin' around,
                Upsetting, upsetting, upsetting the town,
                Asking for Mr Brown.
                From Mandeville to slide-a-ville -      /fadeout/
