Pato Banton - My Opinion (II)

First of all I thank you Jah
For the beauty of life
And for the spiritual strength
In my moments of strife
I thank you for the Bible
Like a compass it's my guide
So I won't get lost or left no way
By the way side
Although I've lost my dread
I haven't lost my sight
And until my day of rest
I will follow your light
I will fight against injustice
Hypocrites, parasites and sodomites
And over evil I will win
With the truths and the rights

My name is Pato Banton
This is my opinion
Yes, my name is Pato Banton
Me born and grow a England

My name is Pato Banton
This is my opinion

I do not hold no prejudice for any other nation
As far as I'm concerned we're all a part of God's creation
Like dog a dog and cat a cat a human is a human
So there should be no prejudice because of one's complexion
There should be no prejudice because of one's religion
For every man has got the right to make his own decision
I don't just talk to every man but also every woman
Understanding gives you knowledge but the fear of God is wisdom
Wisdom is the compass that will show you the direction
Towards the light of Jah! and away from all illusion

Yes, my name is Pato Banton
Born and grow a England
My name is Pato Banton
This is my opinion

My name is Pato Banton
Me born and grow a England
My name is Pato Banton

Sometimes I cry for my people in South Africa
Depressed and persecuted by apartheid law
Under the rule of a mass murderer
Who goes by the name of Mr. Botha
With tears in my eyes I look to the skies
And wonder how long must my people suffer
But just like Malcom X and Martin Luther King
Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela
My dream is for all men to live as brother
So all freedom fighters let's sing together

Woe Mr. Botha (Free up South Africa)!
Free up South Africa (Woe Mr. Botha)!
Woe Mr. Botha (Free up South Africa)!
Free up South Africa (Woe Mr. Botha)!

Woe Mr. Botha (Free up South Africa)!
Free up South Africa (Woe Mr. Botha)!
Woe Mr. Botha - Free them, free them
Free up South Africa

This is my opinion
Yes, this is my opinion
This is my opinion

You see
In a world so full of hate and crime and injustice
What we need right now is love, sweet love
So won't you sing with me

What the world needs now is love, sweet love
No not just for some but for everyone
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
No not just for some but for everyone

What the world needs now is love, sweet love
No, no, no, no, no but for everyone

This is my opinion..
