What I've got you've got to give it to your mama
What I've got you've got to give it to your papa
What I've got you've got to give it to your daughter
You do a little dance and then you drink a little water

What I've got you've got to get it, put it in you
What I've got you've got to get it, put it in you
What I've got you've got to get it, put it in you
Reeling with the feeling, don't stop, continue

Oh, realize I don't want to be a miser
Confide wisely you'll be the wiser
Young blood is the lovin' upriser
How come everybody wanna keep it like the kaiser?

Give it away, give it away, give it away, now
Give it away, give it away, give it away, now
Give it away, give it away, give it away, now
I can't tell if I'm a kingpin or a pauper

Greedy little people in a sea of distress
Keep your more to receive your less
Unimpressed by material excess
Love is free, love me, say, "Hell, yes"

Low brow but I rock a little know-how
No time for the piggies or the hoosegow
Get smart, get down with the pow wow
Never been a better time than right now

Bob Marley, poet and a prophet
Bob Marley, taught me how to off it
Bob Marley, walkin' like he talk it
Goodness me, can't you see I'm gonna cough it?

Give it away, give it away, give it away, now
Give it away, give it away, give it away, now
Give it away, give it away, give it away, now
Oh, I can't

Give it away, give it away, give it away, now
Give it away, give it away, give it away, now
Give it away, give it away, give it away, now
I can't tell if I'm a kingpin or a pauper

Lucky me swimmin' in my ability
Dancin' down on life with agility
Come and drink it up from my fertility
Blessed with a bucket of lucky mobility

My mom, I love her 'cause she loves me
Long gone are the times when she scrub me
Feelin' good my brother gonna hug me
Drink my juice young love chug-a-lug me

Oh, there's a river born to be a giver
Keep you warm, won't let you shiver
His heart is never gonna wither
Come on everybody time to deliver

Give it away, give it away, give it away, now
Give it away, give it away, give it away, now
Give it away, give it away, give it away, now
I can't tell if I'm a kingpin or a pauper

What I've got you've got to give it to your mama
What I've got you've got to give it to your papa
What I've got you've got to give it to your daughter
You do a little dance and then you drink a little water

What I've got you've got to get it, put it in you
What I've got you've got to get it, put it in you
What I've got you've got to get it, put it in you
Reeling with the feeling don't stop continue

Oh, realize I don't want to be a miser
Confide wisely you'll be the wiser
Young blood is the lovin' upriser
How come everybody wanna keep it like the kaiser?

Give it away, give it away, give it away now
Give it away, give it away, give it away now
Give it away, give it away, give it away now
Give it away, give it away, give it away now

Give it away now, give it away now, give it away now
Give it away now, give it away now, give it away now
Give it away now, give it away now, give it away now
Give it away now, give it away now, give it away now

Give it away now, give it away now, give it away now
Give it away now, give it away now, give it away now
Give it away now, give it away now, give it away
