Its All Alright


Olá pessoas
Wassap peepo
Why the long face?
Why the incessant tears?
For what reason
Are you brooding?

Hola gente
How una dey?
Why una dey bone face?
When you should
Be enjoying this breeze
Sent from high above

Free yourself
Forget the morrow
For the morrow
Shall take care of itself
Let go of your worries
Just smile always.

When you look up
Morning and night
What do you see?
When you place your hands
On your chest
Do you feel the beat of your heart?

Ciao gente
I bring to you good news
That which you knew already.
'Hello people
Its all gonna alright,
Just believe in Him'
