Uh! Ya too rude! Uh! Eh! Oh what a rat race! Oh, what a rat race! Oh, what a rat race! This is the rat race! Rat race! (Rat race!) (Rat race!)
Some a lawful, some a bastard, some a jacket Oh, what a rat race, yeah! Rat race! Some a gorgon-a, some a hooligan-a, some a guine-gog-a In this 'ere rat race, yeah! Rat race!
I'm singin' that When the cat's away The mice will play Political violence fill ya city, ye-ah! Don't involve rasta in your say say Rasta don't work for no CIA
Rat race Rat race, rat race yeah! Rat race, I'm sayin' When you think is peace and safety A sudden destruction Collective security for surety, ye-ah!
Don't forget your history Know your destiny In the abundance of water The fool is thirsty Rat race Rat race Rat race
Rat race! Oh, it's a disgrace To see the human race In a rat race, yeah
Rat race! You got the horse race You got the dog race You got the human-race But this is a rat race Rat race!
