or
Bob Marley & the Wailers

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!
