About Bob Marley

Robert Nesta Marley, OM (6 February 1945 – 11 May 1981) was a Jamaican singer-songwriter, musician and guitarist who achieved international fame and acclaim, blending mostly reggae, ska and rocksteady in his compositions. Starting out in 1963 with the group the Wailers, he forged a distinctive songwriting and vocal style that would later resonate with audiences worldwide. The Wailers would go on to release some of the earliest reggae records with producer Lee "Scratch" Perry.

                        Ya too rude!

Cm  A#  Gm  D#, Cm  A#, Cm

Chorus 1:

Cm              A#                  Cm
Oh, what a rat race, oh, what a rat race!
              A#                    Cm
Oh, what a rat race; this is the rat race! Rat race! (Rat race!)

Verse 1:

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, rat race! I'm singin' that:

Verse 2:

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.

Chorus 2:

    A#                  Cm
Rat race, rat race, rat race, rat race! I'm sayin';

Verse 3:

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 a-bundance of water, the fool is thirsty.

Chorus 3:

    A#                  Cm
Rat race, rat race, rat race, rat race,
              A#                                    Cm
Oh, it's a dis-grace 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!
