...RAT RACE... by Bob Marley
--------------..............

*from 'Positive Vibration' (1976)*

Cm  A#  Gm  D#, Cm  A#, Cm
                         Ya too rude!

Cm  A#  Gm  D#, Cm  A#, Cm

Chorus 1:

Cm              A#                   Cm
 Oh, what a rat race, oh, what a rat race!
               A#                    Cm
Oh, what a rat race; this is the rat race! Rat race! (Rat race!)

Verse 1:

       A#
Some a lawful, some a bastard, some a jacket:
               Cm
Oh, what a rat race, yeah, rat race!
       A#
Some a gorgon-a, some a hooligan-a, some a guine-gog-a,
                 Cm
In this 'ere rat race, rat race! I'm singin' that:

Verse 2:

A#
 When the cat's away; the mice will play.
Cm
 Political voilence, fill ya city, ye-ah!
A#
 Don't involve Rasta in your say say;
Cm
 Rasta don't work for no, C.I.A.

Chorus 2:

    A#                  Cm
Rat race, rat race, rat race, rat race! I'm sayin';

Verse 3:

A#
 When you think, is peace and safety; a sudden destruction.
Cm
 Collective security, for surety, ye-ah!
A#
 Don't forget your history, know your destiny;
         Cm
In the a-bundance of water, the fool is thirsty.

Chorus 3:

    A#                  Cm
Rat race, rat race, rat race, rat race,
               A#                                    Cm
Oh, it's a dis-grace to see the human-race, in a rat race, rat race!

Coda:

            A#
You got the horse race; you got the dog race;
                                          Cm
You got the human-race; but this is a rat race, rat race!

(Fade)
