Lucky Dube - The One Lyrics




It started as a joke
I never thought it would come to this
Today I'm walking in the bushes, like a criminal
Today I'm walking so slow, like a predator
Just to get a glimpse of you
As you play in the playground
Your mother spoke to the lawyers
Told them I was not good around you
The lawyers spoke to the judges
Told them I was not good around you
The judges gave your mother a letter
That is keeping me away from you
Don't worry, you are never far from me
Inside my heart, I keep a little box
It is the box of memories I created about you
Inside my heart, I keep a little box
It is the box of memories I created about you

[Chorus ×7:]
You are the one, you are the one

Whenever I miss you bad
I walk around the park
Looking at little boys and girls
They remind me of you
There's a lot of stories I'd like to share with you
There's a lot of games, I would like to play with you
Tears come down my face
When I think about what happened

The lawyer spoke to the judges
Told them I was not good around you
The judges gave your mother a letter
That is keeping me away from you
Don't worry, you are never far from me
Inside my heart I keep a little box
It is a box of memories I created about you

[Chorus: till fade]
You are the one, you are the one

    It started as a joke
    I never thought it would come to this
    Today I'm walking in the bushes, like a criminal
    Today I'm walking so slow, like a predator
    Just to get a glimpse of you
    As you play in the play ground.
    Your mother spoke to the lawyers
    Told them I was not good around you
    The lawyers spoke to the judges
    Told the I was not good around you
    The judges gave your mother a letter
    That is keeping me away from you
    Don't worry, you are never far from me
    Inside my heart, I keep a little box
    It is the box of memories I created about you 😌😌😌😢

    ALWAYS BETTER THEN THE MASTER BOB M.

    Naies Bethleiw

    Please STOP, your comment sounds 'blasphemous' lol
    After late Emperor Haile Selassie (The Christ of Rastafarian movement), the second prominent figure is ''Bob Marley''. Lucky Dube might be in the top 20 of all time Reggae artists but certainly not in the top 10.

  79. Titty Maluki
