Nah Skin Up

Johnny Osbourne

Let's join hand and hearts together
And try to work it out, don't you see

We are all brothers and sisters
So what are we fighting for?
If love is so lovely and war is so ugly
Lord can't you tell me
Why must this war be? Oh-oh-oh woah

(Mi nah skin up) Mi seh mi can't skin up
(Mi nah skin up) We've got to work it out
Solve these problems together (mi nah give up)

Brother fighting 'gainst brother, father 'gainst son
Lord knows we don't need all these guns
It's not safe to walk the streets anymore
Like we used to do before, and that is why

(Mi nah skin up) Stop skin-skin up I say
(Mi nah skin up) We've got to work it out
(Mi nah give up) Can't find no love this way
We got to solve our problem together, woah-yeah-eh

In this crucial time that we live in, I say
What is the judgement for the sin?
If love is so lovely then war is so ugly
Lord can't you tell me
Why must this war be?

I say a that I can't skin up
(Can't skin up) Nah skin up
(Nah skin up) Can't skin up I say
(Can't skin up)
We gotta get together and put out the problem
Inna righteous way

Just can't skin up, I say
Got to be serious, in this crucial time
Oh Lord

Can't skin up, I tell you nah skin up
Just can't skin up, nah skin up
We got to get together
And try to solve the problem
I just can't skin up, I can't do that
I got to be serious, Lord I say
In this crucial time
