The time has come, the Walrus said
Talk of many things
Ship and shoes and sealing wax
Of cabbages and kings

Life a the greatest gift given to humanity
Surround yourself with a lot a positive energy
Yuh can buy it even if yuh have whole heap a money
And das why we spread love inna the community
Yuh coulda be small man or a celebrity
Yuh coulda live uptown or di inna city
Wi need a world full peace and serenity
Sting come sing out fi everybody

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
It landed on its head

Just one lifetime
And there’s only one (and there is only one)
Yes there’s only one (said there is only one)
Just one life to live (one life to live yeah)
Assuming that we’ll make it
We’ve no choice but to take it (c'mon)

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 (one lifetime)
And there’s only one (and there is only one)
Yes there’s only one (and there is only one)
Just one life to live (one life to live yeah)
Assuming that we’ll make it
We’ve no choice but to take it

Come meck wi tek a page out a di book of life
Leggo negativity and do what’s right
Wi no longer need fi a fuss or fight
Unite the world an show dem what's right
Dis generation a set a new trend
Replace di word enemy wid friends
Leaders a di world these rules can’t bend
Dis a di message wi send to dem

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

For 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 (one life to live yeah)
And there’s only one (and there is only one)
Yes there’s only one (and there is only one)
Just one life to live (one one one one life to live now)
Assuming that we’ll make it (yeah)
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
