Track Name: Third World featuring Junior Reid & Inner Circle - Spirit Lives
Yeah, the spirit lives
It's living in the people
It can never, never, never, never
It can never die

Look at the flower over there-
Blooming in the warm, the warm fresh air
looks like the same flower to me
That was here the same time last spring
Say the spirit lives
It's living in the people
It keeps comin' back, comin' back and
It's the same every time

Oh, Bob Marley he sang his song
He says we're jamming all the way to Zion
I hear his voice, yes I do
There's no denying when I hear the truth-well

Everybody in here
Reach out and touch somebody's hand,..
Say it loud, loud as you can
Then raise your hands in
The air-everybody say yeah

Oh, the spirit lives
It's living in the people and it can never die
Marcus Garvey, he lives on
He told his people they've got to be strong
One God, one aim, one destiny
Let Marcus Garvey live in you and me - well -

Everybody in here-
Reach out and touch somebody's hand-
Say it loud, loud as you can
Then raise your hands in the air
Everybody say yeah

Say the spirit lives
Say the spirit lives yeah
Said it's living in the people
Can't you see
It lives in you and me
It lives in the tall oak tree-oh

Who do you know
That can make the lily white snow
Make the little teeny baby grow
Make that water flow
And with all these things that I have seen
Don't you know I truly believe trat

The spirit lives
It's living in the people
It will never die
It keeps comin' back and comin' back and comin' back
And it's the same every time

Said you and me
let the spirit set you free
Can't you, can't you see
Oh. what it's done for you and me.........
Track Name: Third World featuring Sly and Robbie - Revolutionary People
Revolutionary people, with revolutionary minds, putting everything in line
Revolutionary people, its crucial everytime, but we're doing just fine

Why should I bow to your bondage
When Rastafari done set I free
Who made you a judge, who gave you jurisdiction over me
And why should I lower my standards or change my character
When the core of my heart cries out for militancy
So you can call your kings horses and call your kings men
and tell them we just won't bend
Call your kings masses and all your kings friends, call the whole a dem

Just can't hide, everybody knows Im one of them

Revolutionary people, with revolutionary minds, putting everything in line
Revolutionary people, its crucial everytime, but we're doing just fine

Now we don't think like they do
not everything you hear is true
They wanna flip and spin us around
They trying to play us the fool
But we stand up for the right thing
We got to keep our faith and hopes
Scare tactics not working that's just not the way it goes
All we stand on is the truth and we have to defend it for our youths

Revolutionary people, with revolutionary minds, putting everything in line
Revolutionary people, its crucial everytime, but we're doing just fine

Just can't hide, everybody knows Im one of them

Tired of your slogans, nuh bother wid yu come and bribes
We're on a different program, fighting on the militant side
All we stand on is the truth, We got to defend it for our youth
Everybody knows we're one of those
Track Name: Third World ft Gregory Isaacs - Front Door
I gave her back the key to her front door 'cause it seems she didn't care about me anymore I gave her all the love I had and she spilled it, yeah So I packed my things into a shopping bag and decided to quit

But Lord know that I don't wanna be lonely tonight I don't wanna be lonely tonight I said I don't wanna be lonely tonight But I would rather to be lonely than to live a dirty lie

All of those things that we've been through Used to make me happy, now make me blue I didn't believe the things that I've heard, no But now I've seen it with my own eyes I know action speak louder than word

But Lord know that I don't wanna be lonely tonight Granny know that I don't wanna be lonely tonight I mean it, yes I mean it I don't wanna be lonely tonight But I would rather to be lonely than to live a dirty lie

I'm so sorry we been through I'm so fed up I don't know what to do

All of those things that we've been through Used to make me happy, now make me blue I didn't believe the things that I've heard, no But now I've seen it with my own eyes I know action speak louder than word

But Lord knows that I don't wanna be lonely tonight Granny know that I don't wanna be lonely tonight I mean it, yes I mean it I don't wanna be lonely tonight But I would rather to be lonely than to live a dirty lie

Don't wanna be lonely Don't wanna be lonely tonight, don't wanna be lonely tonight.
Track Name: Third World ft Tessanne Chin - By My Side
(Bunny)
We don't need another bitter day
Just take a look around, there's not much more to say
Many a times I know you just can't take no more
Feeling as if the very end is knocking at your door

(Tessanne)
And if you feel tears building in your eyes
Don't worry cause you know I'm right there by your side
And if you stay, stay by my side
There's nothing in this world we could not brush aside

Chorus
I'll be the anchor in the storm
I'll be the arms to keep you warm
Together we can ride the tide
So stay by my side


(Bunny)
I'm not around a lot I know
Don't let it rest upon your mind
and even dull your glow
The spirit survives you don't have to fear
Though you can't look upon my face
You know I'm always there

(Tessanne)
And if you feel tears burning in your eyes
Don't worry cause you got me right there by your side
And by your side is where I'll be
Stay with me even when there's worries and disharmony

Chorus

(Bunny & Tessanne)
So if you feel tears building in your eyes
Don't worry you know I'm right there by your side
There may be times you feel so secure until someone
You trust says your not welcome any more
By my side, By my side, By my side

Chorus
Track Name: Third World ft Capleton - Good Hearted People
King Shango and Third World

Bless Up all the decent boys and decent girls

(chorus)
Good Hearted People
Will Never Blow Away
They'll never fade away
Like a candle in the wind

Good Hearted People
Will Never Blow Away
They'll never fade away
Like a candle in the wind

There is a special certain consciousness
That separates them from the rest
You see it in their eyes
And they don't speak of love and happiness
And that's because they know that its
The very way of life

(chorus)
Good Hearted People
Will Never Blow Away
They'll never fade away
Like a candle in the wind

(Capleton)
From yu heart good
Jah will bless yu when yuh going out and yu coming in

Ina di middle of the ocean when da tempest get high
Yes, it mek yu laugh good
And when mi smile yu nuh see nuh plastic
Mi know mi laugh good.

(chorus)
Good Hearted people
Will Never blow away
They will never fade away
Like a candle in the wind

Good Hearted people
Yes they can be found
Good Hearted people they are all around
Good Hearted people you see them everyday
Good Hearted people they are here to stay
Good Hearted people right before your eyes
Good Hearted people you've got to recognize

Good Hearted people

(chorus)
Good Hearted people
Will Never blow away
They will never fade away
Like a candle in the wind

Good Hearted people
Will Never blow away
They will never fade away
Like a candle in the wind

(Capleton)
Cho, the leopard never change his spot Whoa

The lion never change his tracks Whoa
And the leopard never change his spot Whoa

(chorus)
Good Hearted people

They will never fade away
Like a candle in the wind

They will never fade away
Like a candle in the wind
