about

Our remake of Travie McCoy & Bruno Mars' "Billionaire" with a decidedly different message...

lyrics

JAH Boogie:

I'm born to be a Rastaman, that's JAH JAH plan
to live & learn & be a better man
I don't need to be a billionaire, that's not for me
I don't live the life of luxury

Every time I close my eyes
I see the truth & realize
I must be conscious & I must be wise I swear
nothing can compare with JAH vibes everywhere

I don't need all the things in life that eyes can see
because I know they're not a part of me
I know JAH provide everything, all that we need
and it goes beyond material things
Because life means more to me than all of the vanity
I'd rather have a family and the love for humanity

Every time I close my eyes
I see the truth & realize
I must be conscious & I must be wise I swear
nothing can compare with JAH vibes everywhere

Deken Frost:

Money's the root of all evil
Evil is nothing but power
Power is money or hours
Hours can always corrupt
Corruption's known to disrupt
the whole balance of nature
I send praise to the Maker
The bun oven creator
The one that told us the greater things
await on the other side,
so swallow your foolish pride
It's time for you to decide:
What side are you playing on,
Love or atomic bomb
Hold it before it's gone
Listen close to this song
Appreciate what you have
'cause somebody's holding half
I feel it best when I laugh
Stayin' true to my path

JAH Boogie:

I'm born to be a Rastaman, that's JAH JAH plan
to live & learn & be a better man
I don't have to be a billionaire, that's not for me
I don't live the life of luxury

Every time I close my eyes
I see the truth & realize
I must be conscious & I must be wise I swear
nothing can compare with JAH vibes everywhere
