"Rat Race" as written by Rick Marc Anderson, Michael David Cotten, Prairie Prince, William Edmond Spooner, Roger A. Steen, Vince Welnick and John Waldo Waybill....
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!
