Don't Stop The Music
Pato Banton
Album: Wize Up! (No Compromize)

Don't stop the music!
Do anything you want but
don't stop the music!
Can you see it's all I got?

Now my papa didn't like
the sound of the drum and the bass
coming through my speaker in the living room.
So he came downstairs in a puff shouting:
"Son! You better just turn that music down!"
Well I was never one to disagree
I was one of the best behaved in the family.
But when it came to my sweet reggae music
I had to tell him: Papa no...

Don't stop the music!
Do anything you want but
don't stop the music!
No, no, no! It's all I got!

Music was my first love and it'll be my last
we dream about the future
but we can't forget the past.
No I can't forget, can't forget
can't forget no, can't forget.
I was born and raised in the ghetto
a member of a struggling family.
Born and raised in the ghetto
hard times was my only reality.
Born and raised in the ghetto
it's not a very nice place to be.
No, no! No, no!
But the music gives us the vibe so:

Don't stop the music!
No, no, no, no!
Don't stop the music!
No, no, no, no!
I said: Don't stop the music!
No, no, no, no!
I said: Don't stop the music!
No, no, no, no, no, no!

Time to rise on another plane
no time for materialism.
Time to climb that ladder again
no time for this system of Ism.
And no matter what a guy might try
or what the critics are saying.
While I got this breath-of-life
Jah conscious music I'm playing so:

Don't stop the music!
No, no, no, no!
Don't stop the music!
It's all I got!
I said: Don't stop the music!
No, no, no, no, no, no!
Don't stop the music!
You can't stop it no!

You can't stop it!
No you can't stop it!
Mmm you can't stop it!
No, no, no!
You can't stop it!
No you can't stop it!
Hey you can't stop it! No!

Don't stop the music!
No, no, no, no!
No, no, no, no, no, no!
No, no, no, no!

If music is the food of life, play on!
