"Crisis" as written by and Freddie Hubbard....
They say the sun shines for all
But-a yin some people world, it never shine at all
They say love is a stream that will find its course
I mean, some-a people think life is a dream
So they making matters worse

But no matter what the crisis is
No matter what the crisis is
Doing it, doing it, doing your thing
(Give Jah all the thanks and praises)
Giving it, giving it, giving it, giving it
(Give Jah all the thanks and praises)

So, so, so much been said, and then so little (been done) little been done
They still killing, killing the people
And they, and they having (havin' their fun) havin'-a, havin'-a lots of fun
Killing the people, oo-yoo, (having fun) having their fun
They just want to be the leader
In the house of the rising sun

But no matter what the crisis is
Oh, no, oh, no no no what the crisis is
Do your
Live it up, live it up, live it up, live it up (give Jah all the thanks and praises!)
Live it up, live it up, live it up, live it up (give Jah all the thanks and praises)

They say the sun shines for all
But-a yin some people world, it never shine at all
They say love is a stream that will find its course
I mean, some-a people think life is a dream
So they making matters worse

No matter what the crisis is
No matter what the crisis is
Do it
Live it up, live it up, live it up, live it up (give Jah all the thanks and praises)
Live it up, live it up, live it up, live it up (give Jah all the thanks and praises)
(Give Jah all the thanks and praises)
His mercies endureth for ever, yeah
(Give Jah all the thanks and praises)
Oh, children, come on, and give Jah
(Give Jah all the thanks and praises)
Children, come on, and give Jah
(Give Jah all the thanks and praises)

    General CommentSo - so - so much have been said, so little (been done) been done
    They still killin' - killin' the people
    And they - and they havin' (havin' their fun) - havin'-a - havin'-a lots of fun -
    Killin' the people, oo-yoo! - (havin' fun) havin' their fun!
    They just want to be the leader
    In the 'ouse of the risin' sun.

    General Commentlisten to the melody that plays on the keyboard about half way through the song it intertwines with the melody on the guitar at the start!
