sizzla kalonji

 

Rise to the occasion look at yourself then say your strong, no one can stop u (oh Yea)
Rise to the occasion go ahead u know your strong, no one can stop u
Its for you to make the best in life now that you got the chance
Get up and step to towards your goal, its alright
Fulfill your needs and wants
You to make the best in life now that you got the chance
Get up and step to towards your goal, its alright

Some people read and meditate, I just move scanty Yo
Some people are conscious about life, others are still panting, Yo
Some people like strong drink cold like champagne and brandy Yo
Babies love ice cream and cake and cotton candy yo
I love herbs and girls, good words, roots and mashanti yo
Girls love clothes, shoes, going to school brand new and mean spanking yo
Yet we all need education because that the damn thing yo
All things fade leaving its standing.

Its for you to make the best in life now that you got the chance
Get up and step to towards your goal, its alright (yeah, Yeah)`
Fulfill your needs and wants
you to make the best in life now that you got the chance
Get up and step to towards your goal, its alright (yeah, Yeah)
Fulfill your needs and wants

You’ve got the clearance that’s the reference, perseverance for the utmost
that’s should be your preference Still so dread and talent is your evidence
Help those are far off, teach those in your resident (oh yeah, yeah)
Girls getting sentiments, look at with a clear conscience

Its for you to make the best in life now that you got the chance
Get up and step to towards your goal, its alright (yeah, Yeah)`
Fulfill your needs and wants
Its for you to make the best in life now that you got the chance
Get up and step to towards your goal, its alright (yeah, Yeah)`

(Oh Wow) people try so many things just to make a living
Thanks and praise to the king, ever living thanks giving yo
Me know distracts and stay focus because it now begins
Got to achieve you goals and its so vivid
No crime, no killing, no confusion; life is so real, no time for disillusion
Just like mom would say, love is the solution
keep making music lift up music the throne

Its for you to make the best in life now that you got the chance
Get up and step to towards your goal, its alright (yeah, Yeah)`
Fulfill your needs and wants
You to make the best in life now that you got the chance
Get up and step to towards your goal, its alright.
