“We Free The People With Music”-Bob Marley

Well, it’s better late than never to celebrate Bob Marley’s B-day with a couple of my favorite songs of the legendary Rastafarian, reggae musician, Bob Marley.
His music/lyrics keep inspiring and changing people all over the globe with his positive messages.
When I have felt bummed out I turn on some BM and you can feel the love in his music he left.

Top Rankin’ Lyrics
They don’t want to see us unite
All they want us to do is keep on fussing and fighting.
They don’t want to see us live together
All they want us to do is keep on killing one another.

Top rankin’, top rankin’:
Are you skankin’ (skankin’, skankin’)?
Are you skankin’ (skankin’, skankin’)?
Wo-ho, top rankin’ (top rankin’), ‘Ow, did you mean what you say now?
Are you – ‘ow are you (rankin’, rankin’) –
are ya – Lord, Lord, Lord! (skankin’, skankin’)?

They say the blood runs;
And it runs through our line,
And our hearts, heart of hearts divine, eh!
And John saw them comin’, ooh! – a-with the truth
From an ancient time.

The brotherly love (brotherly love), the sisterly love (sisterly love)
I feel this morning; I feel this morning:
Brotherly love (brotherly love), the sisterly love (sisterly love)
I feel this morning, this morning. Hey!

They don’t want us to unite:
All they want us to do is keep on fussing and fighting.
They don’t want to see us live together;
All they want us to do is keep on killing one another.

Top rankin’ (top rankin’)!
Did ya mean what you say now (top rankin’)?
Are you skankin’ (skankin’, skankin’)?
Are you skankin’ (skankin’, skankin’)?
Top rankin’ (top ranking),
Did you (top rankin’) mean what you say (top rankin’)?
Are you (rankin’, rankin)?
Are you (skankin’, skankin’)?
Top rankin’ (top rankin’)
Top rankin’ (top rankin’)
Are you (skankin’, skankin’)?
‘Ow are you (skankin’, skankin’)?
