Jimmy Cliff - Hypocrites Lyrics




(Yeah yeah, yeah - heh)
Hypocrite, you dirty hypocrite
You're gonna pay the price some day
Hypocrites, all of you hypocrites
You're gonna pay the price some day
Words you speak from your mouth
But your heart is telling lies
Oh ho hypo -
Hypocrite, you better watch out

We walked, we talked together, yes we did
We ate, we drank together, yes we did
But when I find
You're a snake in the grass
My heart grieved to be taken for an ass
(Ooh hoo) but

Hypocrite, all of you hypocrites
You're gonna pay the price some day
Hypocrite, stinking hypocrite
Gonna pay the price some day
Words you speak from your mouth
But your heart is telling lies
Oh ho hypo -
Hypocrite, you better watch out

All the time I was joking with you
You were planning to make me blue
On one side of your smile
Was a frown
You said you wish me well
Yet you drag me down
Anywhere you go
There is always one to be found
(Woh ho ho ho)

Hypocrite, stinking hypocrite
You're gonna pay the price someday
Hypocrite, you rotten hypocrite
You're gonna pay the price some day
Words you speak from your mouth
But your heart is telling lies
Oh ho hypo -
Hypocrite, you better watch out

Hypocrites, you dirty hypocrites
I know you're gonna pay the price some day
(Woh oh oh)
Hypocrites, all of you hypocrites
I know you're gonna pay the price some day
(Woh oh oh)
Hypocrites, all of you hypocrites
I know you're gonna pay the price
I said you're gonna pay the price some day
(Yeah heh heh)
Hypocrites, all of you hypocrites
(Woh oh)
You're gonna pay the price
You're gonna pay the price some day
Hypocrites

  70. Godwin Ibe

    I was about twenty one when I first heard this song in the early seventies.That day the song was great and fantastic, as it is today, The Sunday morning after, I was passing by a church and I looked through the windows and saw the worshippers kneeling down in deep meditation or prayer, including my fellow wayfarers on the sleazy side of life, and I immediately burst into this song and ran away as fast as my legs could carry me.

    Ja Low

    His music is like a living tree.

    Ja Low

    Jimmy cliff is a prophet.
    There are people in churches who people are calling prophets, but all they do is swindle money from people...
    Jimmy is a real prophet because the message in his songs have come to pass and can evoke love compassion and understanding..
    His music is timeless and living just like a tree planted by the rivers of waters.
    Give thus humble messenger his due.
    Buff respect to Jimmy cliff.

  77. Ursula Bornhauser

  78. triumphant Oghre

    Jimmy Cliff is the best. He's a genius! His songs are evergreen. I was in my teens when I started to listen and dance to his music. I am now in my 50s and each time I play his music as if it has just been released. He is a freedom fighter, motivator, entertainer, composer, etc. He is fearful, outspoken, a model for all, etc. Ride on sir!

    Queeny Eta
