Death is the robber but he can't catch me
My soul shall rise I shall be free
If lost I am then found I'll be
Death is the robber but he can't catch me

Tiger got to hunt, bird got to fly
Man got to sit and wonder why? why? why?
Tiger got to sleep, bird got to land
Man got to tell himself that he understand

Moon got to rise, sun got to shine
Man got to tell himself that he rhyme
Moon got to set, sun got to fall
Man he got to tell himself he understand it all

Death is the robber but he can't catch me
My soul shall rise I shall be free
If lost I am then found I'll be
Death is the robber but he can't catch...
Death is the robber but he can't catch...
Death is the robber but he can't catch me

Moon got to rise, sun got to shine
Man got to tell himself that he rhyme
The sea she is green, the sky he is blue
Man he tell himself he belong here, too

Death is the robber but he can't catch me
My soul shall rise I shall be free
If lost I am then found I'll be
Death is the robber but he can't catch...
Death is the robber but he can't catch...
Death is the robber but he can't catch me
