"Rat Race" as written by and Quincy D Jones....
(Oh, what a rat race!)
(Oh, what a rat race!)
(Oh, what a rat race!)
(This is the 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'
When the cat's away
The mice will play
Political violence fill ya city, yeah!
Don't involve rasta in your say say
I'm sayin'
Rasta don't work for no CIA

Rat race
Rat race,
Rat race yeah!
Rat race
I'm sayin'
When you think it's peace and safety
A sudden destruction
Collective security for surety, yeah!

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, yeah

Rat race!
You got the horse race
You got the dog race
You got the human race
But this is a rat race, yeah
Rat race!

Some a-chicken, some a-scatter
Some are budgies, some are bats
In this here rat race
Rat race
