rebel in disguise
lyrics

If you don't see me smiling

It got nothing to do with you

My papa been on the rock so long

Inherited a permanent screw (repeat 3 times)

If you don't see me smiling

It ain't no concern of you

My mama been on the rock for so long

Inherited a permanenet screw (repeat 3 times)

So you won't even know me

'Cause you can't look me in the eye

Well onlyl then my friend you would see

That I am a rebel in disguise

Said I am a rebel in disguise

And I am a rebel in disguise

We are rebels in disguise

We are rebels in disguise

If you don't catch me smiling

Said I have got serious on my mind

Want to tell you a little story

We are living in a serious time (repeat)

Said a fire deh, said a fire deh

Fire deh a mus mus tall

You think a cool breeze

Life is real hard

But you think it gonna ease

By letting the pressure pile up on me

The baby crying

You come and ask us for a dollar bill

And we give you ten

Simply mean you should not be coming back again

Simply mean you go home and learn to help yourself

You are putting, you are putting on the pressure

Making it, making it much harder

If you don't see me smiling

It ain't got nothing to do with you

(repeat 3 times)

Then again you might have done something wrong

And you don't know where you belong

(repeat 3 times)

So you won't really know us

We are rebels in disgusie

Said I am a rebel in disguise (repeat 2 times)

And we are rebels in disguise (repeat 2 times)

Fire de a mus mus tail

And you think a cool breeze

Your life is real hard but you think it's gonna ease

By letting the pressure pile up on me
