Jump to: Overall Meaning | Line by Line Meaning

INTRO:
I and I defend the down pressed is a muss
In a need I and I nuh fight nor fuss
Co' everything them dem say them rightful own belong to us
My fuddah done tell I and I everything shall fall to I and I is a muss
So Babylon set the livity, everyday anudda one bite the duss
My Lawd



CHORUS:
You don?t have to say you are sorry
For all the wrongs that you have done
I don?t wanna hear a sad story
Cuz the damage already done
Oh the damage already done

VERSE 1:
Broken bones and wounds need tender repair
Hang on brother man don?t despair (Hold on)
Although we forgive
Seven times seven
Still the damage already done
So much damage already done
Stop and listen a while to meditation style
Going straight to your mind through ya wicked and wile
Only way you can deal with this vibes is to free up ya soul and mind
Yagga Yagga Yagga Yagga Yoi

CHORUS:
You don?t have to say you are sorry
For all the wrongs that you have done
I don?t wanna hear a sad story
Cuz the damage already done
Oh the damage already done

VERSE 2:
Everybody wants their peace of mind
Trying to justify how they deal with mankind
Sometimes I wonder how they sleep at night time
When all the damage already done
Oh the damage already done
Stop and listen a while to meditation style
Going straight to your mind through ya wicked and wile
Only way you can deal with this vibes is to free up ya soul and mind
Yagga Yagga Yagga Yagga Yoi

CHORUS:
You don?t have to say you are sorry
For all the wrongs that you have done
I don?t wanna hear a sad story

Cuz the damage already done
Oh the damage already done
