Song Lyrics: War and Crime

You see, there is a story I want to say to you.
Just wanna share this world with you, you see.
They say before I was born,
there are two things that never live together,
and even if I am gone
these two things will never be friends.
You see am talking about Love and Hate.
They never live together, they never be friends.
no charm, no worry, they never live to see this.
You see the story goes on like this…

Oh mama, yeah eh.
Listen.
Love and hate,
can never be friends, no.
War and crime will never end. (No, No.)
Love and hate can never be friends, no.
War and crime will never ends.

Well I don’t love the way
how some people stay.
Cause all they want to do, take your life away.
I don’t love the way how some people stay.
Cause all they wanna do is take your life from you
Well I’m singing…

Love and hate can never be friends.
No, war and crime will never ends. (No, No.)
Love and hate can never be friends.
Nooo… war and crime will never end.

Some people don’t like other people.
Cause all they wanna do is to fuss and fight with you.
Some people love the guns,
Some people love the knives,
And all they wanna do is take each other’s lives.
But am singing.

Love and hate can never be friends. (Nooo)
War and crime will never end. (No, No.)
Love and hate can never be friends. (No Who-oo)
War and crime can never be friends.

Love- Love- Love- Love- Love- Love- Love- Darling
Oh- Oh- No- No.
Watch this,
Love and hate can never be friends, people
war and crime can never really rein
and daddy Brushy naah go give nuh problem.
I come and all to warn the children
Nuff a them, rally them a Satan son.
All him really want is just a knife and a gun.
Mother Ban her belly and she drop down a ground.
Another Brother shot a brother in Kingston.
Satta and cool, don’t you be a fool.
Read your Bible, Listen father God rule.
Hunu member that father God sent out, the rule.
I said, don’t be a fool.

Love- Love- Love- Love- Love- Love is loveliness.
But war and crime will never ends. (Noo)
Love- Love- Love- Love- Love- Love is Peace and happiness.
But war and crime will never end.
So I’m singing.

Love and hate can never be friends. (Nooo)
War and crime will never ends. (No No)
Love and hate can never be friends. (No No)
No, war and crime can never ends.

Love- Love- Love- Love- Love- Love is loveliness.
But war and crime will never ends and am singing.
Love- Love- Love- Love- Love- Love is Peace and happiness.
But war and crime will never ends and am singing.

Love and hate can never be friends. (Nooo)
No, war and crime will never ends. (No No)
Love and hate willnever be friends. (No No)
No, war and crime will never ends…..

Love and hate can never be friends. (Nooo)
No, war and crime will never ends.
Never.
