I AM GOING HOME

I am going home
Ahhh, yeah!
I am going home

Well when I look over Jordan what did I see
(Coming for to carry me home)
Well there's a whole bunch of angels coming
(Coming for to carry me home)
And that is why

I am going home
Ahhh...
I am going home

Well if you reach up there before I do
(Coming for to carry me home)
Just tell everyone that I'm a-coming up there too
(Coming for to carry me home)
And then you'll know that

I am going home
Ahhh...
I am going home

Well then I look over Jordan what did I see
(Coming for to carry me home)
There's a whole bunch of angels coming
(Coming for to carry me home)
Now will you sing this song

I am going home
Ahhh...
I am going home
Oh, come on and sing this song with me
I am going home
Everybody, everybody
I am going home
Ah don't you hear what I say?
I am going home
Ahhh...
I am going home
Ahhh...
I am going home
I'm going home, I'm going home, I'm going home
I am going home
Come on and join, will it be too late?
I am going home...

LOVE AND AFFECTION

This was caused through love and affection
This was caused through love and affection
This was caused through love and affection
And I...

I was the one who feels the pain
I was the one where the heartaches remained
I was the one who always feels the pain

This was caused through love and affection
This was caused through love and affection
This was caused through love and affection
That's why...

I have the lonesome feeling (lonesome feeling)
It hurts to be alone
Now I'm a king but sitting on an empty throne

This was caused through love and affection
This was caused through love and affection
This was caused through love and affection

ONE LOVE (reggae version)

One Love
One Heart
Let's get together and feel all right
Hear the children cryin'
One love
Hear the children cryin'
One heart
Sayin' give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
Sayin' let's get together and feel all right

Let them all pass all their dirty remarks
One love
There is one question I'd really love to ask
One heart
Is there a place for the hopeless sinner
Who has hurt all mankind just to save his own
Believe me

One love
What about a one heart?
One heart
What about...
Let's get together and feel all right
As it was in the beginning
One love
So shall it be in the end
One heart
All right
Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
Let's get together and feel all right

One more thing...
Let's get together to fight this Holy Armageddon
One love
So when the Man comes there will be no, no doom
One song
Have pity on those whose chances grows thinner
There ainít no hiding place from the Father of Creation
Sayin'...

One love
What about the one heart?
One heart
What about the...
Let's get together and feel all right
I'm pleadin' to mankind!
One love
Oh, Lord!
One heart
Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
Let's get together and feel all right
Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
Let's get together and feel all right

* "What sweet nanny goat a go run him belly" is a Jamaican proverb that means...
What tastes good to a goat will ruin his belly.
Be careful. What seems good to you now, may hurt you later.

+"Chicken get merry, hawk be near," is another Jamaican proverb that means...
Every silver lining has its dark cloud. Even in the best of times you must still be watchful.
