about

Orange Grove Den Haag, Netherlands

Many tours and a few albums later, OG is finally at their moment of truth. Somebody close to the band fills us in: “They are about to drop something big and heavy, so naturally it will make a very loud thumping noise and even people who were not paying attention will hear it.” ... more

To a place where the water’s sweet
It’s safe in the shallow and the deep
Where we can let these problems sleep forever and ever and ever
Hey Federique I know you like your reggae sweet
Hey Federique I know a spot where the reggae’s sweet
Hey Federique still in seek of she sweet lucky streak
She say she wan book a seat straight down to she peak

And if you’re coming or not I’ve gotta clear dodge
So when they ask for me, tellem I be chillin back at home styley
Hey Federique I know you like your reggae sweet
Hey Federique I know a spot where the reggae’s sweet
Hey Federique I know you like your reggae sweet
Hey Federique I know a spot where the reggae’s sweet
Where we can go looking for shade instead of shelter
The seasons never change and nor will the weather
Where we can go looking for shade instead of shelter
The seasons never change and nor will the weather
In a place where the livin’s easy
In the middle of the Caribbean Sea
Where we can only take it easy
Forever and ever and ever
Hey Federique I know you like ya reggae sweet
Hey Federique I know a spot where the reggae’s sweet

Track Name: Hurtin
Oh no man you’ll lose your hand in the battle
But you’ll come back strong after so long to round up your cattle
But times have changed, there aint nobody know your name
I’m sayin times have changed but some things will always remain the same
Track Name: Live Up
Walk like you’re bad and you act tough
Not when you’re locked up inna handcuffs
Wear your kahkies dem low pon di ground, always bobbin your head to a raggamuffin sound
Talkin bout times is hard and dem seas rough
Dropped outta school like an idiot
You’re wet up and nah goin dry so
Now tell me how the hell you goin get wise so
Live up badman live up, cause if you’ve had enough well maybe you’re not so tough
Live up badman live up, now that you’ve had enough I guess you’re just not so tough
What have you done for society
What have you contributed to humanity
He’s just another crack-head on the block
The edge aint far when you’re livin on a rock
You said you love that reggae music
Well why not try fi use it
Dig deep for inspiration cause you can skank to the beat but can you feel the vibration
Live up badman live up, cause if you’ve had enough well maybe you’re not so tough
Live up badman live up, now that you’ve had enough I guess you’re just not so tough
And all you ever wanna talk about is that system and how it was made to keep you out
And all that time all you did was sit back and complain
Well it aint no wonder yet you wonder why things dem will never change
Track Name: Move On
Hey girl head up high, don’t you let your man see you cry
Hey girl don’t you know, never let your man treat you so
Track Name: Cryin
Oh mama you said son don’t take it for granted, there’re so many ones out there who do not have it as easy
Oh mama you said son don’t take it for granted, there’re so many ones out there who do not have it as easy
I saw smoke risin on my horizon, my paradise was being burned to the ground
All I never did, and could have done, and now I’ve got to do it the next time around
Sometimes it’s hard to figure out whether you’re damned or blessed, when with the good comes bad and with the more comes less, when everytime you try fi clean up you just end up in a mess, don’t go dwelling on the thought you’re not as lucky as the rest. If life is a test I wan confess that I passed it, before my last breath when I rest in my casket
You might have tried your best yesterday, but don’t try no less today
Oh mama you said son don’t take it for granted, there’re so many ones out there who do not have it as easy
Oh mama you said son don’t take it for granted, there’re so many ones out there who do not have it as easy
Easy, some don’t it easy
Remember there is always somebody who’s got it worse. Someone who can’t quench him thirst or him hunger. Don’t take this race too literally it’s not bout getting first..it’s the greed and the jealousy goin take you under
In life you’ll take some licks just don’t forget how much dem hurt, cause without the bitter you won’t know what sweet is worth. If you stumble take a tumble..get up brush off di dirt, go find ya formula and make it work
There’re no limits I’m all up in it, life is love and I’ve fallen in it. Come get caught up in it cause nothing looks better on you than a smile
Oh mama you said son don’t take it for granted, there’re so many ones out there who do not have it as easy
Oh mama you said son don’t take it for granted, there’re so many ones out there who do not have it as easy
Easy, some don’t have it easy
Easy, some don’t have it easy
You’re cryin for what you don’t got , but some are dying for what you do
Life’s hard and that’s just the truth but don’t you use that as an excuse
You’re cryin for what you don’t got , but some are dying for what you do
Life’s hard and that’s just the truth but don’t you use that as an excuse
Oh mama you said son don’t take it for granted, there’re so many ones out there who do not have it as easy
Oh mama you said son don’t take it for granted, there’re so many ones out there who do not have it as easy
Oh mama you said son don’t take it for granted, there’re so many ones out there who do not have it as easy
