Just One Lifetime

This song is by Sting and Shaggy and appears on the album 44/876 (2018).

The time has come, The Walrus said, talk of many things
Ship and shoes and sealing wax, of cabbages and kings

Life a the greatest gift given to humanity
Surround yourself with a lot a positive energy
You can't buy it even if you have whole heap of money
And that's why we spread love inna the community

You could-a be small man or a celebrity
You could-a live uptown or there inna city
We need a world full of peace and serenity
Sting come sing out fi everybody

The time has come, as Shaggy said
To talk of many things
Of ships and shoes and sealing wax
Of cabbages and kings

The planets turn in retrograde
The moon seems to have fled
The world is spinning upside down
And landed on its head

Just one lifetime
And there's only one (And there is only one)
Yes, there's only one (Said, there is only one)
Just one life to live (One life to live, yeah)
Assuming that we'll make it
We've no choice but to take it

I'm with you, the Walrus said
We'll dress for heavy weather
Whatever's on the road ahead
We're in this now, together

We thought we'd make a run for it
Not knowing where we're headed
We packed the car with both our bags
And filled her up, unleaded

Just one lifetime
And there's only one (And there is only one)
Yes, there's only one (And there is only one)
Just one life to live (One life to live, yeah)
Assuming that we'll make it
We've no choice but to take it

Come make we take a page out a di book of life
Let go negativity and do what's right
We no longer need to fuss or fight
Unite the world and show dem what's right

This generation a set a new trend
Replace the word "enemy" with "friends"
Leaders of the world, these rules can't bend
This-a the message we send to them

The time had come, a reckoning
We all knew it was coming
We headed north on empty roads
The engine gently humming

The Walrus smoked a cigarette
He claimed it was his last
No signs of life, no gas, no food
In all the empty towns we passed

So, all we have is me and you
It has to be enough
I've got your back and you've got mine
If the going, it gets rough

Just one lifetime (One life to live, love)
And there's only one (And there is only one)
Yes, there's only one (And there is only one)
Just one life to live (One, one, one, one life to live)
Assuming that we'll make it (Yeah)
We've no choice but to take it

The time has come, The Walrus said
To talk of many things
Of ships and shoes and sealing wax
Of cabbages and kings
