Dieting
Gregory Isaacs Lyrics


Lord

Lord

I sit and wonder have I sinned
As I partake of my dieting, yeah
Just to know that every day, oh yea7h
My whole life depend on a food tray, yeah
An happy day, a night of pain
I wonder when this a-term will end
Cos I'm a man and I've got to go
I don't know when I'm gonna get parole
But I'm a-one day
I'm a-one day
Yes, I'm a-one day
One day closer to home
One day closer to home

The place in which that I dwell, Lord knows
Was just an old iron gate in hell, yeah
But still I survive
The foolish man always build strife
Nuh want no baton stick come bruk me bone
The worldly man, leave me alone

Cos I'm a man and I've got to go
I don't know when I'm gonna get parole
But I'm a-one day
I'm a-one day
Yes, I'm a-one day
One day closer to home
One day closer to home
One day closer to home
One day closer to home
One day closer to home

Uunh
One day closer to home

I sit and wonder have I sinned, Lord God
As I partake of my dieting
Hurts to know that every day, every long day
My whole life depend on a food tray
An happy day, a night of pain
I wonder when this a-term will end
Cos I'm a man and I've got to go
I don't know when I'm gonna get parole
But I'm a-one day
I'm a-one day
I'm a-one day
One day closer to home
One day closer to home
One day closer to home
One day closer to home
One day closer to home
To home
I need, aah
To home
One day closer to home

Tune hard man!!!

maison770

Thé weakest tune on this set ... but still sound good

GARVEY UFOT

False, absolutely false. This is definitely the hottest tune in the album. Jesus! Are you kidding me? Please, listen to it now cos I've just supplied its lyrics, which were hitherto unavailable.

maison770

Lawrence Njawe private secretary is killer but I prefer the mix of the 45 ..

Lawrence Njawe

@maison770 "Star" is really good...And unusually a top track not penned by Isaacs himself. However mine are: "Out Deh" and "Private Secretary " with its wicked sense of humor....Cheers to you, mate.....

maison770

Lawrence Njawe totally agreed bro’ .. Star is my favorite off this LP .. one more thing about The track « good morning « I find his voice too low ( mic )

Lawrence Njawe

@maison770 Absolutely right. It is the weakest song on the set. If it hadn't been sung by Gregory Isaacs, I probably wouldn't have given this song a second listen. But still i give it an ear....Bless...!!!
