MAJEK FASHEK
"Send Down The Rain" 1988 Classic
The sky look misty and cloudy
Looks like the rain's gonna fall today
This morning I have been sowing my seed
Waiting for the rain to drop and water them. Lord
Oh Lord..ye
i'm a hungry man
And I don't wanna be angry
Send down the rain<
water up my seed ...
Send down the rain
Send down the rain
Send down the rain
Send down the rain
Everything in Life has got its time and season
so you don't have to ask me why
You don't expect to sow cassava
and reap up cocoyam
you dont expect to sow rice
and reap up cassava
Whatsoever a man sows in this world
they must surely reap
cause i'm a living man
got a lot of works to do
send down the rain
Papa Papa papayo,
Yaya, Yaya yayayo,
send down the rain
I'm a living man
Got a lot of works to do
Send down the rain
Mama mama mamayo,
yaga yaga yagayo, send down the rain
Papa papa papayo
Yaya Yaya yayayo
Send down the rain
Jah is my song and that would make me be so strong
Jah is my song and thats make me feel so strong
No matter what they say
Even if they say Im wrong
im gonna feel strong
Cos i know im gonna live long
Oh Lord
cause i'm a living man
got a lot of work to do
send down the rain
Papa Papa mamayo,yaga yaga yagayo, send down the rainMama mama mamayo
yaga yaga yagayo, send down the rain
Yes i'm a living man
got a lot of work to do
send down the rain
Jah is my song and that would make me be strong
even though i'm wrong i'm gona live long
Mama mama mamayo,yaga yaga yagayo, send down the rain.....
