Give Me Oil
Pato Banton + Mad Professor
Album: Mad Professor Captures Pato Banton

Well each and every day I got to keep on moving.
So Jah! Give me oil in a my lamp, keep it burning.

Jah give me little oil in a my lamp, keep it burning.
Jah give me little oil in a my lamp, keep it burning.
Jah give me little oil in a my lamp, keep it burning.
Jah give me little oil in a my lamp, keep it burning.

It's to Jah and only Jah who I man is praying
so all conscious people I hope you are listening
not just listening with you ears but with your mind meditating
and abiding to the words that Pato Banton is preaching.
A foolish man will tell you culture lyrics is boring
I would leave that pon ??? pieces when I ask him who you a dealing?
like salt in a water his brain will be dissolving
smoke would come out of his ears like an old run down engine
like a man struck by lightning he'll wonder what hit him?
I'll cramp and paralyze him and then I will leave him.
It no matter if you mellow, black, white, brown, pink or green skin
who ever fight against Jah surely deserves a beating.

So give me little oil in a my lamp, keep it burning.
Jah give me little oil in a my lamp, keep it burning.
Just give me little oil in a my lamp, keep it burning.
Just give me little oil in a my lamp, keep it burning.

Well the devil is a crook don't be his next victim
he'll break into your brain and check what you're thinking.
If you're dreaming of gold then gold you'll be wearing
if you're wishing for money then money you'll be spending
if you're hoping for fun then fun you'll be having
but remember all good things must come to an ending.
Adam and Eve in a the garden it came to a sinning
love between Cain and Abel it came to a killing
many good times I've had, had to come to an ending
but let me carry on with what I was saying.
Every time that you sin the devil is laughing
every wrong move you make brings you nearer towards him
you've got your chance while you are still living
to choose a life of goodness or a life full of sinning.
So when Satan says "come to the fiery dungeon"
it's only a wicked man soul that way will be taking.

Just give me little oil in a my lamp, keep it burning.
Jah give me little oil in a my lamp, keep it burning.
Just give me little oil in a my lamp, keep it burning.
Just give me little oil in a my lamp, keep it burning.

Now all careless children I hope you are listening
not just listening with your ears but with your mind concentrating
me well serious I hope you don't think I'm joking
if you listen truth and right and a study diverse action
give thanks and praise in the night also first thing a morning
try fi squeeze in couple chapters of the bible every evening
watch what you do also mind what you saying
every day, every hour, every minute, every second, Jah is watching
that's why me say: Do good! And good will follow you! Yeah!

Just give me little oil in a my lamp, keep it burning.
Jah give me little oil in a my lamp, keep it burning.
Just give me little oil in a my lamp, keep it burning.
Just give me little oil in a my lamp, keep it burning.
Burning.
