Track Name: Lady Luck
He started out young yea
But now he's crossed the line
Ain't no way you can trust him
Because he's done too much time

Chance always gave him a beginning
But now he's gone too far and it's messed him up

What's it all about?
Can you figure him out?
It's like being in a dead end

He was unannounced yea
But he sat himself down
Put his cards on the table
Lady Luck shining down

Chance always gave him a beginning
But now he's gone too far and it's messed him up
He always said luck would be, would be with him
He's gonna play the game before his luck will change

What's it all about?
Can you figure him out?
It's like being in a dead end
Track Name: Liberty
I see her walking late at night
I'm wondering where she's comin from
Red stilettos fake leather hand bag
Her partner hangs his head

Stolen wages
Her name is Liberty
Stolen wages
Her name is Liberty

Under Lights one night I stood
Waiting just to see
When the cops came drivin by
There was Liberty
Her hair was tatty
Her makeup smudged
Her eyes were black and blue
I looked at her
She looked at me
Poor old Liberty
Track Name: Get a Job
If you wanna, if you wanna get a job
Then you better, then you better sort it out
Because there's not so many jobs to offer
Track Name: D-Lorus
Pocket Billiards jamin out
Some rocksteady beats
Reggae sound from the second floor
Passing to the street
Got no time for hassle
Reggae's ringin out
Excess noise from the second floor
Say what? Say who? Say h-h-h-h-ho!


Reggae blues,
Blue suede shoes
Ska beat, jazz, the lot
Reggae boys behind bars
Dance to the jailhouse rock
Got no time for trouble
Reggae's doin time
But thanks to D-Lorus
We move into the chorus
