ALTON ELLIS

I CAN'T STAND IT  |  You've Made Me So, Very Happy

I CAN'T STAND IT

I wish I could count on you
I wish I could count on you, oh baby
I can't stand it

Fussing and fighting all day long
Tossing and turning everything seems wrong
I can't stand it

I wish I could depend on you
I wish I could depend on you oh, baby
I can't stand it

I'm a man with a loving soul
Got the things to rock your soul, oh baby
I can't stand it

You go west, I go south
All I know I'm checking out
I can't stand it...

______________________________________

I Can't Stand It  |  YOU'VE MADE ME SO VERY HAPPY

YOU'VE MADE ME SO VERY HAPPY

I've lost that love, that love, that love before
God, man, and I close, and I close, and I close the door
And you say, "try just once more"
And you came and you took control
You touched my very soul
You always show me that
Loving you is where it's at

You've made me so very happy
I'm so glad you came into my life

The others were untrue
But when it came to loving you, now
I'd spend my whole life with you girl
Because you came and you took control
You touched my very soul
You always show me that
Loving you is where it's at

You've made me so very happy
And I'm so glad you came into my life

HOW SWEET IT IS  |   Shame and Scandal  |  Soon You'll Be Gone

HOW SWEET IT IS

There was a time
When I would sit and say
That I'll never
Fall in love again
Now I know (Darling now I know)
Yes I know

How sweet it is
To be in love

Since I found you
My whole life has changed
And I'm so happy
To love you more each day
Yes I know (Darling yes I know)
Yes I know

How sweet it is
To be in love

Let me tell you people
What I have to say
Go find your true love
And say the same someday
Say that you know (Darling that you know)
That's how I know

How sweet it is
To be in love

How Sweet It Is  |  SHAME AND SCANDAL  |  Soon You'll Be Gone

SHAME AND SCANDAL

(chorus)
*Woe! Misery!
Shame and scandal in the family
Woe! Misery!
Shame and scandal in the family!

In Jamaica there was a family
With much confusion as you will see
There was a momma and a papa and a boy who was grown
Who wanted to marry have a wife of his own
He found a young girl, who suited him nice
He went to his papa to ask his advice
The papa said: "Son, I have to say no,
That girl is your sister, but your momma don't know"
(chorus)

So the weeks went by and the summer came down
And soon the best cook in the island he found
He went to his papa, to make a day
The papa turned to him and to him he did say
"You can't marry this girl, I have to say no
That girl is your sister, but your momma don't know"
(chorus)

He went to his momma and covered his head
He told his momma what his papa had said
His momma she laughed, she said: "Go man, go
Your daddy ain't your daddy, but your daddy don't know"
(chorus)

*"Woe, is me" and "Who is real?" are just a few of the other many variations of this line.

How Sweet It Is  |  Shame and Scandal  |  SOON YOU'LL BE GONE

SOON YOU'LL BE GONE

(chorus)
Soon you'll be gone
And I'll be all alone
Soon you'll be gone (Yes you will)
And I'll be all alone

You give a little light, unto my soul
You keep me warm baby when I get cold
And with all these things that you do to me
I'll never forget I could've set you free
(chorus)

You show me right, when I go wrong
I can't be weak because you keep me strong
And now because I have fooled around
You had to leave and then you let me down
(chorus)

I guess that's how, it's got to be
I know your little heart is full of misery
Well I still hope and pray
That you will find another love someday

By then you'll be gone
And I'll be all alone
By then you'll be gone (Yes you will)
And I'll be all alone

I Am Going Home  |   LOVE AND AFFECTION  |   One Love (reggae)  |   One Love (ska)  |   Put It On  |   Simmer Down

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

*"What sweet nanny goat a go run him belly," is a cautionary Jamaican proverb that means:
What tastes good to a goat will ruin his belly.
In other words... The things that seem good to you now, can hurt you later.

+"Chicken merry, hawk be near," is a Jamaican proverb that means:
Every silver lining has its dark cloud. Even in the happiest times one must still be watchful.

THE GAYLETTES

YESTER ME, YESTER YOU, YESTERDAY

Yester-me, yester-you, yesterday

What happened to, the world we knew
When we would dream and scheme and while the time away
Yester-me, yester-you, yesterday

Where did it go, that yester-glow
When we could feel the wheel of life turn our way
Yester-me, yester-you, yesterday

I had a dream, so did you
Life was warm and love was true
Two kids who followed all the rules, are yester-fools and now

Now it seems, those yester-dreams
Were just a cruel and foolish game we used to play
Yester-me, yester-you, yesterday

When I recall, what we had
I feel lost I feel sad
With nothing but the memory of yester-love and now

Now it seems, those yester-dreams
Were just a cruel and foolish game we had to play
Yester-me, yester-you, yesterday

'Cause you're the rose of my heart
And a-sweet rose, you are my queen

You're my Miss Jamaica

You're my Miss Jamaica
I'm crowning you myself

Although you may not have such a fabulous shape
To suit the rest of the world
But you do suit me and that's all I want to know
I need not know nothing more

CARRY GO BRING COME

*This carry go bring come my dear, brings misery
This carry go bring come my dear, brings misery

You're going from town to town making disturbances
It's time you stopped doing those things, you old Jezebel

The meek shall inherit the Earth, you old Jezebel
It needs no light to see you're making disturbances

It's better to seek a home in Mount Zion high
Instead of keeping oppression upon innocent man

Time will tell on you, you old Jezebel
How long shall the wicked reign over my people?

It's better to seek a home in Mount Zion high

THE LADY IN RED

Say, have you ever met the girl who's the toast of the town?
A work of art without a question
You'd better write her number down

The lady in red, the fellas are crazy for the lady in red
She's a bit gaudy, but lawdy what a personality
The lady in red, is fresh as a daisy when the town is in bed
Dancing and dining and shining with originality

She's very proper
She's nothing more than a pal
But oh me and oh my
You'd never stop her
She'd be a dangerous gal
If she'd ever meet the right guy

The lady in red, the fellas are crazy for the lady in red
Is she a study, oh buddy what a personality... she's got vitality

Say, have you ever met the dream in the red velvet gown
If you would pardon my suggestion
You'd better write her number down

THE TIDE IS HIGH

The tide is high, but I'm holding on
I'm gonna be your number one
I'm not the kind of man
Who gives up just like that, no

It's not the things you do that really hurt me bad
But it's the way you do the things you do to me
I'm not the kind of man
Who gives up just like that, no

The tide is high, but I'm holding on
I'm gonna be your number one
Number one
Number one

Every man wants you to be his girl
But I'll wait, my dear, 'till it's my turn
I'm not the kind of man
Who gives up just like that, no

The tide is high, but I'm holding on
I'm gonna be your number one
The tide is high, but I'm holding on
I'm gonna be your number one...

DON'T STAY AWAY  |  Perfidia

DON'T STAY AWAY

If I Knew
How much I love you
How much I need you
You wouldn't stay away

If you knew
You were my one desire
You set my soul on fire
You wouldn't stay away

Now darling, I know you have got another girl
She treats you nice, I know, she's even more beautiful than I

But if you knew
How my heart burned for you
And how I longed for you
You wouldn't stay away

Don't Stay away  |  PERFIDIA

PERFIDIA

To you, my heart cries out perfidia
For I find you the love my life
In somebody else's arms

Your eyes, are echoing perfidia
Forgetful of the promise of love
You're sharing another's charms

With a sad lament my dreams are faded like a broken melody
While the gods of love look down and laugh at what romantic fools we mortals be

And now, I know my love was not for you
And so I take it back with a sigh
Perfidia's one goodbye

ROUGH RIDER

She was a rough rider
A cool stroker
A strong whiner
I had a hard night

Last night
Last night
Last night

I feel so broke up today
I feel so broke up today
Lord, I feel so mash up today

She was a strong whiner
A rough rider
She whiney, whiney
Last night

I donít know what you'd, say if you saw me yesterday
But I know what you'd, say if you saw for me today

She was a strong whiner
A rough rider
She whiney, whiney
Last night

She chop de wood
Last night
Me wore me brush
Tonight
I said me wore me brush
Tonight

TEN COMMANDMENTS (FROM MAN TO WOMAN)

The ten commandments from man
Given to woman
Through the inspiration of I, Prince Buster

One,
Thou shall have no other man but me

Two,
Though shall not encourage no man to make love to you
Neither kiss or caress you
For I am your man, a very jealous man
And is ready to lay low any other man who may intrude on our love

Three,
Remember to kiss and caress me
Honor and obey me, in my every whim and fancy
Seven days a week and twice on Sundays
Because at no time will I ever be tired 0f I-T "it"

Four,
Honor my name, so that every other woman may honor it also

Five,
Thou shall not provoke me to anger
Or my wrath will descend upon you heavily

Commandment Six,
Thou shall not search my pockets at night
Or annoy me with your hearsays

Commandment Seven,
Thou shall not shout my name in the streets
If I am walking with another woman
But wait intelligently until I come home
Then we can both have it out decently
For I am your man, a funny man
And detest a scandal in public places

Commandment Eight,
Thou shall not drink, or smoke
Nor use profane language
For those bad habits I will not stand for

Nine,
Thou shall not commit adultery
For the world will not hold me guilty if I commit murder

Ten,
Thou shall not covet thy neighbor's dress
Nor her shoes, nor her bureau, nor her bed, nor her hat
Nor anything that's hers
Neither shall thou call my attention to anything that may be for sale
In any stores, for I will not give thee anything
But what you actually need for your purpose

These are the ten commandments from man
Given to woman

SPLIT PERSONALITY

I donít know if it's black
I donít if it's white
I donít know if it's girl
I donít know if it's boy

Split personality
Split personality
Is insecurity
Split personality

It donít matter what the people say
Life was meant to be this way
It donít matter what the world say
People got to be this way

JOHN JAMES

Oh, John James went down to London town
He want to be a member if him can
But I know what I know
He never wore them tight shirt before

He was sitting in a mansion smoking a big cigar
He was sitting in a mansion smoking a big cigar
But I know what I know, he never wore them tight shirt before

All I want sir just put me among some girls
He said, "All I want sir just, put me among some girls
But I know what I know, he never wore them tight shirt before

Johnny is the coolest one...
But he is bad, bad, bad,
