Lyrics

SHAGGY
The time has come, the Walrus said,
To talk of many things,
Of ships and shoes and sealing wax,
Of cabbages and kings.

Life a the greatest gift given to humanity,
Surround yourself with a lot a positive energy,
Yuh caan buy it even if yuh have wull heap a money,
A das why we spread love ina the community.
Yuh coulda be small man or a celebrity,
Yuh coulda live uptown or di ina city,
Wi need a world full peace and serenity,
Sting come sing out fi everybody.

STING
The time has come, as Shaggy said,
To talk of many things,
Of ships and shoes and sealing wax,
Of cabbages and kings.

The planets turn in retrograde,
The moon seems to have fled,
The world is spinning upside down,
And landed on its head.

Just one lifetime,
And there’s only one, yes there’s only one.
Just one life to live,
Assuming that we’ll make it,
We’ve no choice but to take it.

I’m with you, the Walrus said,
We’ll dress for heavy weather,
Whatever’s on the road ahead,
We’re in this now together.

We thought we’d make a run for it,
Not knowing where we’re headed,
We packed the car with both our bags,
And filled her up unleaded.

Just one lifetime,
And there’s only one, yes there’s only one.
Just one life to live,
Assuming that we’ll make it,
We’ve no choice but to take it.

SHAGGY
Come Meck wi Teck a page out a di book of life,
Lego negativity and do what’s right,
Wi no longer need fi a fuss or fight,
Unite the world an show dem di right.
Dis generation a set a new trend,
Replace di word enemy wid friend,
Leaders a di world these rules can’t bend,
Dis a di message wi send to dem.

STING
The time had come, a reckoning,
We all knew it was coming,
We headed North on empty roads,
The engine gently humming.

The Walrus smoked a cigarette,
He claimed it was his last,
No signs of life, no gas, no food,
In all the empty towns we passed.

All we have is me and you,
It has to be enough,
I’ve got your back and you’ve got mine,
If the going it gets rough.

Just one lifetime,
And there’s only one, yes there’s only one.
Just one life to live,
Assuming that we’ll make it,
We’ve no choice but to take it.

The time has come, the Walrus said,
To talk of many things,
Of ships and shoes and sealing wax,
Of cabbages and kings.
