Wake up and turn me loose
Wake up and turn me loose
Wake up and turn me loose
For the rain is falling

Got to have kaya now
Got to have kaya now
Got to have kaya now
For the rain is falling

I'm so high, I even touch the sky
Above the falling rain
I feel so good in my neighborhood, so
Here I come again

Got to have kaya now
Got to have kaya now
Got to have kaya now
For the rain is falling

Feelin' irie I
Feelin' irie I
Feelin' irie I
'Cause I have some kaya now

I feel so high, I even touch the sky
Above the falling rain
I feel so good in my neighborhood, so
Here I come again

Got to have kaya now
Got to have kaya now
Got to have kaya now, Lord
For the rain is falling

(Kaya now, kaya, kaya) huh

    General CommentI'm sure it's pretty obvious, but in case you were wondering...
    i'm thinking this song is about everyday problems and how people take them way out of proportion. While other people are stressing, bob wakes up each day knowing these problems are trivial, problems like poverty, being in trouble with the law, because they are brought on by men. He 'gets so high, i even touch the sky, above the falling rain.' gives it away. The falling rain is the problems, and he gets 'above them' using weed. This is a good song.

    General Commenti thought the song was about weed, though i found it interesting to found out that in rastafarian, kaya means 'enlightenment'.
