(verse 1)
[C] Every day [F]I get up and pray to [C]Jah[F]
[C] And he increases the number of [F]??? by exactly [C]one[F]

(verse 2)
Some people say that bowling alleys got big lanes
Some people say that bowling alleys all look the same
There's not a line that goes here that rhymes with anything
Had a dream last night but I forget what it was
(verse 3)
Had a dream last night about you my friend
Had a dream, I wanted to sleep next to plastic
Had a dream, I wanted to lick your knees
Had a dream, it was about nothing
(chorus x2)

I'm pretty sure that it's "clouds"... as in "praying to Jah", man

I'm sorry, that should read ..."increase the number of clocks by exactly one."

A member of Camper came to our uke circle and led us in a sing-along of this song. The line ...increase the clocks by exactly one." That's the way he sang it and, hey, he was there during the birthing process of this classic tune.
