Sting, Shaggy – Just One Lifetime

Sting, Shaggy - Just One Lifetime

[Verse 1 – Shaggy]
The time has come, the Walrus said
To talk of many things
Of ships and shoes and sealing wax
Of cabbages and kings

[Shaggy]
Life a the greatest gift given to humanity
Surround yourself with a lot a positive energy
Yuh can't buy it even if yuh have whole heap a money
And dat's why we spread love ina the community
Yuh coulda be small man or a celebrity
Yuh coulda live uptown or di in a city
We need a world full peace and serenity
Sting come sing out fi everybody

[Sting]
The time has come, as Shaggy said
To talk of many things
Of ships and shoes and sealing wax
Of cabbages and kings

The planets turn in retrograde
The moon seems to have fled
The world is spinning upside down
And landed on its head

[Chorus – Sting]
Just one lifetime
And there’s only one, yes there’s only one
Just one life to live
Assuming that we’ll make it
We’ve no choice but to take it

[Verse 2 – Sting]
I’m with you, the Walrus said
We’ll dress for heavy weather
Whatever’s on the road ahead
We’re in this now together

We thought we’d make a run for it
Not knowing where we’re headed
We packed the car with both our bags
And filled her up unleaded

Just one lifetime
And there’s only one, yes there’s only one
Just one life to live
Assuming that we’ll make it
We’ve no choice but to take it

[Shaggy]
Come make we take a page out a di book of life
Lego negativity and do what’s right
We no longer need fi a fuss or fight
Unite the world and show dem di right
Dis generation a set a new trend
Replace di word enemy wid friend
Leaders a di world these rules can’t bend
Dis a di message we a send to dem

[Sting]
The time had come, a reckoning
We all knew it was coming
We headed North on empty roads
The engine gently humming

The Walrus smoked a cigarette
He claimed it was his last
No signs of life, no gas, no food
In all the empty towns we passed

All we have is me and you
It has to be enough
I’ve got your back and you’ve got mine
If the going it gets rough

Just one lifetime
And there’s only one, yes there’s only one
Just one life to live
Assuming that we’ll make it
We’ve no choice but to take it

The time has come, the Walrus said
To talk of many things
Of ships and shoes and sealing wax
Of cabbages and kings
