"We And Dem" as written by and Bob Marley....
We no know how we and dem a-go work this out, oy
We no know how we and dem a-go work it out

But someone will 'ave to pay
For the innocent blood
That they shed every day
Oh, children, mark my word
It's what the bible say, yeah, yeah

Oh, we no know how we and dem a-go work this out
We no know how we and dem a-go work it out

But in the beginning jah created everythin' (ooh)
Givin' man dominion over all things
But now it's too late
You see, men has lost their faith (ooh), hey-ey-hey
Eating up all the flesh from off the earth, eh

We no know how we and dem a-go work this out (we no know)
We no know how we and dem a-go work this out (no, we don't know)
Dub-da-dub-da-dub
Dub-a-dippidi-doop-de-doo
Nim-a-nummany num-na-noo
Num-a-nummana-num-da-nay
Dippy-dippy-dippy, dip-de-dub-de-day
Dip-a-dubbada-dub-da-day

But I say, we no know how we and dem a-go work this out
Them a flesh and bone
We no know how we and dem a-go work it out

But we now have no friends
In-a high society, yeah
We no have no friends
Oh, mark my identity
We no have no friends, oh-oh, yeah

We no know how we and dem a-go work this out (no, we no know)
We no know how we and dem a-go work this out (we no know)
We no know how we and dem a-go work it out (no, we don't know)
(We no know how we and dem a-go work this out) rasta
(We no know how we and dem a-go work this out) ilyabom

    General Commentkey words in this song is WE and Dem.. someone will have to pay for the innocent blood THEY shed everyday... hmm let me see is it WE or is it DEM that will have to pay?

    musically its a great song. sads sounding chorus then sounds like theres some reassurance in the verses then back to the we and them dunno how to work it out repeated fade out.. kinda depressing cos it doesnt come back to the reassurance. hmm dont mean to sound all serious but its great. the 2 following songs on the album ressure this one. work and zion train :)
