    Uh! ya too rude!
    Uh! eh! what a rat race!
    Oh, what a rat race! [Repeat: x3]
    This is the 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 voilence fill ya city, ye-ah!
    Don't involve rasta in your say say;
    Rasta don't work for no c.i.a.
    Rat race, rat race, rat race! 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, 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!
