      You're Playing Us Too Close

      You're Playing Us Too Close

      Third World

      Album: Greatest Hits

      Music and Lyrics by Stevie Wonder
      
      Jobless people starving babies spreading
      over the land
      More oppression to the have nots is how you
      play your hand
      More world fighting is the writing from those
      say they know
      And if that's true we know just who
      you'll be picking to go
      
      But the beat you are playing to what Jah is
      saying is wrong
      And we do recommend that you stop before
      it's too far gone
      
      And I just got to say
      You're playing us too close
      
      We in the ghettos
      You're playing us too close
      The jobless and the hungry
      You're playing us too close
      Filling up more and more with Frustration
      You're playing us too close
      We're losing our patience
      
      So take heed and do let it be known that
      I've told you today
      You're playing us much too close yea
      
      All the teaching of JAH bible you don't
      want to obey
      But you're writing your own ticket to the price
      you will pay
      Us you hold hock but the drawback is not
      to us alone
      Time will make you too a victim before you
      see the wrong
      
      And the melody that you are playing is
      in the wrong key
      For Jah's choirs that sings out to all live
      in world harmony
      
      And I just got to say
      You're playing us too close
      We in the ghettos
      You're playing us too close
      Red black white brown and yellow poor people
      You're playing us too close
      The babies are crying
      You're playing us too close
      Good people are dying
      
      So take heed and do let it be known that
      I've told you today
      Jah say you're playing us much too close
      
      Now when I was just a little boy my grandfather
      use to say to me, "Brother B, trust no shadow
      after dark... "It's not till I grew to be a man that
      I understand what the old brother was talking
      about. You see some people take the liberty to
      treat you any way they want to, they feel
      some times that you don't have no dignity. But
      brother fire de ah mus mus tail him think ah
      cool breeze, better watch out easy squeeze
      makes no riot my brethren
      
      You're playing us much too close, so why the
      Don't you people out there all get up off your
      backsides and do something for the worlds for
      every living boy, woman, man and girl. There's
      hungry people all over starving, have no place
      to lay their heads Huh Don't play us so close
      Don't play us so close Don't play us so close
      
      (Chorus during rap)
      Some a dem rap, none a dem a holler
      'Cause Jah say all the musicians shall be there
      The players on instruments shall gather
      at His feet
      
      You need to raise your conscious high
      So Jah Jah Love can rule the world
      
      We need to raise our conscious high
      So Jah Jah Love can rule the world
      
      You need to raise your conscious high
      So Jah Jah Love can rule the world
      
      (Percussion)
      
      We're gonna raise our conscious high
      So Jah Jah Love can rule the world
      
      I'm gonna raise my conscious high
      So Jah Jah Love can rule the world
      
      We're gonna raise our conscious high
      So Jah Jah Love can rule the world
      
      You've gotta raise your conscious high
      So Jab Jah Love can rule the world
