Peter Tosh - Can't Blame The Youth Lyrics

You can't blame the youth
You can't fool the youth
You can't blame the youth of today
You can't fool the youth

You're teachin' youths to learn in school
That cow jump over moon
You teachin' youths to learn in school
That the dish run away with spoon

So, you can't blame the youth when they don't learn
You can't fool the youth
You can't blame the youth of today
You can't fool the youth

You teach the youth about Christopher Colombus
And you said he was a very great man
You teach the youth about Marco Polo
And you said he was a very great man
You teach the youth about the Pirate Hawkins
And you said he was a very great man
You teach the youth about the Pirate Morgan
And you said he was a very great man

So, you can't blame the youth of today
You can't fool the youth
You can't blame the youth
You can't fool the youth

All these great men were doin'
Robbin', a rapin', kidnappin' and killin'
So called great men were doin'
Robbin', rapin', kidnappin'

So, you can't blame the youth
You can't fool the youth
You can't blame the youth, not at all
You can't fool the youth

When every Christmas come
You buy the youth a pretty toy gun
When every Christmas come
You buy the youth a fancy toy gun

So, you can't blame the youth
You can't fool the youth
You can't blame the youth
You can't fool the youth

'Cause what was hidden from the wise and the prudent
Is now revealed to the babes and the sucklings
What was hidden from the wise and the prudent
Now revealed to the babes and the sucklings

Lord, call upon the youth
For he know the youth is strong
Jah, Jah, call upon the youth
'Cause he know the youth is strong

So, you can't blame the youth
You can't fool the youth
You can't blame the youth, baby children
You can't fool the youth

Don't blame them
Not their fault

    Maybe not then but def now. I'm blaming the youth. And the generation that are pissing all over them and telling them it's raining. Jesus is the Answer and Trump is his agent, carrying on the message that peter Tosh delivered.

  13. Ogboriefor Omokhagbo

    You can't blame the youth- Hmmm this applies to Nigeria.

    Salute to the greatest..RIP brother..

  23. Owen Graham

    This is a profoundly moving and revolutionary album! I hear him calling souls to come up Higher and rise to a place of being a true son or daughter of Zion. He was a civil rights leader and inspirational speaker, who sang. The confidence these songs can instill is a prayer and a song, as I imagine. He is beckoning the listeners to come apart and be a separate people, aware, actualized, and free. This music stirs the fires of freedom and self-realization in my soul. Thank you, Peter.

  24. Bornaking

    One of the best reggae collections of all time as far as I'm concerned and with THE best reggae writer, singer, performer, musician, artist that ever hit the stage out of Jamaica. And there are many greats as we know. Personal pref this ain't a Peter or Bob thing!!! These seem to all have been recorded during the Wailers years and it got that song "Love"!!!! Prophets don't stay so we have these wonderful recordings. My favorite songs of all wailers records are the 3 or 4 that feature Peter Tosh. Don't get me wrong, I love me some Bob but they are two very different individuals and Peter Tosh always drew me and he is responsible for helping me come close to Jah Light once again. Rest in Peace my brother, hope I don't disturb you, cause I'm jammin' this loud and long!

    Islamia Yusif

    yes there is none like him.

    Teflon Eibeat'East Africa if that’s the case why is evil still around today? You don’t have much intelligence do you?

    Teflon Eibeat

    @Glenis G.Evil is still around because people Love their Sins. Spiritual wickedness in high and low places.

    Joseph Umrah

    @Teflon Eibeat Totally agree with you Teflon.

    Glendon Codling

    Totally agree with you a million time Peter Tosh fight the devil he flash lightning

    Teflon Eibeat'East Africa that’s what the church taught you eh? I remember those days, believing in the “son” of “god” who died and magically erased our sins then resurrected three days later... boy u have to grow up and make sense to things because innocence is different than ignorance

    "You can’t fool me" Peter Tosh
    All humanity was fooled in that way, except the "power ego people" who chose to play those division illusion tricks upon us... For luck we have some unconditioned people, genius like Peter Tosh, Jiddu Krishnamurti, ... To make us notice what the sad truth is... They know how humanity is so easily fooled and still choose to be on the real side of unity and wake everybody up! We have to make our truth happy again!
