Lyrics
Subway Blues

(1)

Intelectual Gipsy
Say she was a born
In the U.S.of A
Tour the world all over
An' she can' find a place To stay
So she
Forward a Jamaica
Looking for paradise
Need to know her maker
So she ask me
A word of advice.
A tell her

Chorus:
Subway blues
They sing them


Do you feel
When, the poor man
Can't appeal
Fighting for
Supremacy
Loosing
Subway blues in churches
On Sunday
Subway blues
That's what making
The news
They want it to work
But it cannh work, no, no
Subway blues
That's what
Got them confuse'

(2)
Intelectually
She was born
In the U.S.of A
One little wiff
An' she's tipsy, ooh-oh
She got, so much things to say
Forward
On the Island
Living inna paradise
Need to know her maker
So she ask
A word of advice

Chorus: rep.

Solo:-

Chorus:
Subway blues, yu see
They sing them in churches
Every Sunday
Subway blues
That's what making
Yu news, seven days a week
Subway blues
Dem want it to work
But it cannh work
Subway blues
Got them confuse'

Adlib :
The subway
The subway
Why do we
Have to take
The subway
Couldn't we make it
On the highway. Rep.
