Didgeridoo version written by jay kay

Have you heard the news today?
People right across the world are pledging they will play the game
Victims of a modern world, circumstance has brought us here,
Armaggedon's come too near, too too near yeah
Now foresight is the key to save our children's destiny
The consequences are so grave the hipocrites we are their slaves

So my friend to stop the end on each other we depend,
Mountain high and river deep, stop it going on,
We gotta wake this world up from it's sleep,
People, stop it going on

Have you heard the news today?
Money's on the menu in my favorite restaurant,
Now don't talk about quantity, cos there's no fish left in the sea.

Greedy men been killing all the life there ever was,
So you better play it nature's way or she will take it all away,
And don't try tell me you know more than her about right or wrong,
Now you've upset the balance man, done the only thing you can,
Now my life is in your hands

Mountain high and river deep, stop it going on,
We gotta wake this world up from it's sleep,
Oh people, stop it going on

Ahahahaha, hehehehehe...

Mountain high and river deep, stop it going on,
We gotta wake this world up from it's sleep,
People, stop it going on
Greedy men will fade away, oh they will fade away when we stop it going on,
I know it's got to be that way, oh people stop it going on!
I'm asking, when you gonna learn to stop it going on?
When you gonna learn to stop it going on?
