Skylarking
Horace Andy Lyrics


Oh
Yeah
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Skylarking, skylarking
That is what youths do today
Skylarking, skylarking
Before they stand up, firm on their feet

Get a little work, a little work
And earn their bread honestly

Beggin' you a five cent, sir
Beggin' you a ten cent, sir
Cannot help, no, cannot help

So if you all keep on doing
What you all are doing
You will end up, up, up in chains

Skylarking, skylarking
That is what youths do today

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, yeah

Beggin' you a five cent, sir
Beggin' you a ten cent, sir
Cannot help, no, cannot help

So if you all keep on doing
What you all are doing
You will end up, up, up in chains

So if you all keep on doing
What you all are doing
You will end up, up, up in chains

Skylarking, skylarking
That's what youths do today
Skylarking, skylarking
Before they stand up, firm on their feet

Yeah, yeah, yeah, oh yeah
Oh, ohh-oh
Tell him, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, oh yeah
Oh, rasta telling you, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Ohh, oh yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, ah, whoa

Skylarking, skylarking
That's what youth do today
Skylarking, skylarking 
Before they stand up firm on their feet
Get a likkle work, a likkle work
And earn their bread honestly
Beggin' you a five cent, sir
Beggin' you a ten cent, sir
Cannot help, no, cannot help
So if you all keep on doing what you all are doing
You will end up, up up in jail

I have loved this music since I was fifteen years old. I am now 48yrs old and it is still as fresh as when I first heard it.

Memories flooding back of weekday nights back in Bedford England at The Stanley Arms the place to be in late 70's to hang out with all the Rasta's and listen to old and what was then new skool (Steele Pulse). Where have all the good times gone ?

My mum loves reggae. This reminds me of her and I’m thankful for the amazing richness of the music I was surrounded with growing up. Music for the spirit.
