Close One Yesterday
Buju Banton Lyrics


One more day in the struggle
Have to get up and go juggle
You done know, want a little sugar in the pan
Me nah see fi trouble no man
Oh oh oh

Said I had a close one yesterday
Jah put an angel over me, be strong
Hold a firm meditation
One day things must get better
Don't you go down
Keep your head above the water
Say, one day things must get better, be strong
Hold a firm meditation
One day things must get better
Don't you go down
Keep your head above the water
Say, one day things must get better

The rich is wise in his conceit
But the fool with overstanding search him out
Poor man mourn the rich riches increase
Be not grieved, riches are not forever
Envy not the oppressor chose none of his ways
Be not wise in his own eyes
Only Jah you must praise
Strive not with a man without cause
If he have done no harm
Let by gone be by gone

Said I had a close one yesterday
Jah put an angel over me, be strong
Hold a firm meditation
One day things must get better
Don't you go down
Keep your head above the water
Say, one day things must get better, be strong
Hold a firm meditation
One day things must get better
Don't you go down
Keep your head above the water
Say, one day things must get better

This nine to five is a joke
Compare to the pressure
The minister say
The economy is getting better
Misleading the people
The mass still suffer on Jah
Scarce benefits and spoils
Jah know that we feel it
Day and night we cry, cry, cry
Jah know that we feel it
Who can help a weeping soul like I

Said I had a close one yesterday
Jah put an angel over me, be strong
Hold a firm meditation
One day things must get better
Don't you go down
Keep your head above the water
One day things must get better, be strong
Hold a firm meditation
One day things must get better
Don't you go down
Keep your head above the water
Say, one day things must get better

The rich is wise in his all conceit
But the fool with overstanding search him out
Poor man mourn the rich riches increase
Be not grieved, riches are not forever
Envy not the oppressor chose none of his ways
Be not wise in his own eyes
Only Jah you must praise
Strive not with a man without cause
If he have done no harm
Let by gone be by gone

Said I had a close one yesterday
Jah put an angel over me
Said I had a close one yesterday
Jah put an angel over me, be strong
Hold a firm meditation
One day things must get better
Don't you go down
Keep your head above the water
One day things must get better, be strong
Hold a firm meditation
One day things must get better
Don't you go down
Keep your head above the water
One day things must get better

Intro]
One more day in the struggle
Haffi get up and go juggle, you done know
Water and a little sugar inna we pan
Me nah seek fi trouble no man
Oh oh

[Chorus]
Said, I had close one yesterday
Jah put an angel over me
Be strong
Hold a firm meditation
One day things must get better
Don't you go down, keep your head above the water
Say, one day things must get better
Be strong
And I say, hold a firm meditation
One day things must get better
Don't you go down, keep your head above the water
Chant, one day things must get better

[Verse 1]
The rich is wise in his own conceit
But the fool with overstanding searcheth him out
Poor man mourn, the rich riches increase
I said, be not grieved, riches are not forever
Envy not the oppressor, choose none of his ways
Be not wise in thine own eyes, only Jah you must praise
Strive not with a man without cause
If he have done you no harm, let bygones be bygones

[Chorus]
Said, I had close one yesterday
Jah put an angel over me
Be strong
And I say, hold a firm meditation
One day things must get better
Don't you go down, keep your head above that water
One day things must get better
Be strong
And I say, hold a firm meditation
One day things must get better
Don't you go down, keep your head above the water
Say, one day things must get better

[Verse 2]
This 9 to 5 is a joke compared to the pressure
The minister says the economy is getting better
Misleading the people, the mass still suffers
Oh Jah, scarce benefits and spoils
Oh
Jah knows that we feel it, woah, woah, woah, woah
Day and night we cry, cry, cry
Jah knows that we feel it, woo, woo, woo
Who can help a weeping soul like I?

[Chorus]
Said, I had close one yesterday
Jah put an angel over me
Be strong
And I say, hold a firm meditation
One day things must get better
Don't you go down, keep your head above that water
One day things must get better
Be strong
And I bawl, hold a firm meditation
One day things must get better
Don't you go down, keep your head above the water
Say, one day things must get better

[Verse 1]
The rich is wise in his own conceit
But the poor with overstanding searcheth him out
Poor man mourn, the rich riches increase
I said, be not grieved, riches are not forever
Envy not the oppressor, choose none of his ways
Be not wise in thine own eyes, only Jah you must praise
Strive not with a one without cause
If they have done thee no harm, let bygones be bygones

[Outro]
Said, I had close one yesterday
Jah put an angel over me
Said, I had close one yesterday
Jah Jah put an angel -
And I say, be strong, oh oh
Hold a firm meditation
One day things must get better
Don't you go down, keep your head above the water
Chant, one day things must get better
Be strong
And I bawl, hold a firm meditation
One day things must get better
Don't go down, keep your head above the water
One day things must get better...

"Envy NOT the Oppressor ...
Chose NONE of his ways
Be NOT wise in thy own eyes
Only JAH yuh must praise

Strive NOT with a man
WITHOUT a cause
If he has done you NO harm...
Let bygones be bygones" =---->>> ((( #BUJU ... Reggae;s Messiah ::
