So Much Things to Say - Bob Marley (Cover by Cosima)



Covers are never featured on this blog, but this one is an absolute exception. Bob Marley's "So Much Things To Say" is one of his best works but only those who are his real fans will know the lyrics word-for-word and even fewer will understand its true meaning. 
Cosima renders the words out one at a time... anyone listening to her beautiful cover version will finally be able to understand why we all love The Legend.

Lyrics (Bob Marley version):

...Eh! But I'll never forget no way 
They crucified Jesus Christ 
I'll never forget no way 
They stole Marcus Garvey for rights ho-ooh! 
I'll never forget no way 
They turned their back on Paul Bogle, Hey! 
So don't you forget (no way) your youth 
Who you are and where you stand in the struggle...

...But spiritual wickedness in high and low places 
So while they fight you down Stand firm and give Jah thanks and praises...

... 'Cause I and I no expect to be justified 
By the laws of men, by the laws of men Oh, true they have found me guilty 
But brooh, through Jah proved my innocency...

...Oh, when the rain fall, fall, fall now 
It don't fall on one man's housetop 
Remember that, when the rain fall It don't fall on one man's housetop...

...  I and I no expect to be justified 
By the laws of men, by the laws of men 
Hey through God to prove my innocence 
I told you wicked think they found me guilty...

...So much things to say, rumor about 
They got the rumor without humor 
They don't know what they're doin', yeah...
