Israelite  Desmond Dekker

[A]Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sah,
so that every [A7]mouth can be fed.
[D]poor, [E]poor me, me-[A]Israelite. [F]Aa[G]h.
[A]Wife and kids, dem pack up and-a leave me.
Darling, she said, I was [A7]yours to receive.
[D]poor, [E]poor me, me-[A]Israelite. [C]Aa[D]h.
[A]Shirt dem a tear up, trousers a go.
I don't want to end up like [A7]Bonnie and Clyde.
[D]poor, [E]poor me, me-[A]Israelite. [C]Aa[D]h.
[A]After a storm there must be a calm.
catch me in your [A7]sound an alarm.
[D]poor, [E]poor me, me-[A]Israelite. [C]Aa[D]h.
[D]poor, poor [E]me, me-[A]Israelite.(x3)
