LYRICS FOR Troubled Waters

Hunger is frequent, can’t find food to eat
Can’t pay the rent, some end up on the street
Them tax we daily, system indiscrete
Responsibilities, ends can hardly meet, hardly meet

Bridge

We all know that certain things take time
But not forever
Comfort yourself by singing this song of mine

Chorus
Although the mountain is high
I know that one day I will get by
Although the bridges are low
I’ll take my chances to touch the troubled waters
Poverty done deya, It’s a global thing
Crime and violence mek we head start spin
You see the homeless youths them, trust me, what a thing
Exposed to abuses, chances very slim

Bridge repeat…

Chorus repeat…

Some ghetto youths see no choice but to tek up the gun
Some leave school with diploma yet work them can’t get none
Oh what a thing
You think prison and death row system is such a fun
Think again Suicide to me my view is fire burn, fire burn

Chorus repeat…

Although the mountain is high
I know that one day I will get by
Although the bridges are low
I’ll take my chances to touch the troubled waters
Although the mountain is high
I know that one day we will get by
Although the bridges are low
I’ll take my chances to touch the troubled waters
