Lyrics

In this time when there are too many leaders
Not enough farmers
Not enough teachers
Politicians they all are cheaters
What about the fisherman?

What about the fisherman
Him want his fish from the sea
The water's too murky, too hard to see
And the farmer man
Him want to plant his kalo
The lo'i's dry and the land is fallow
And teachers, them go to school everyday
Children must work so the rent is paid
And dreams cannot grow
If there's no hope for tomorrow

In this time when there are too many leaders
Not enough farmers
Not enough teachers (calling all the farmerman)
Politicians they all are cheaters
What about the fisherman?

In this time when there are too many leaders
Not enough farmers
Not enough teachers (calling all the farmerman)
Politicians they all are cheaters
What about the fisherman?

Stay away, away with your poisoning
Don't know how much more she can stand
Stay away, away so she can fight another day
Only water can fill up Jah land
Stay away, away with your poisoning
Don't know how much more she can stand
Stay away, away so she can fight another day
Only water, only water

If you listen closely you can hear her cry
As rain falls like tears from her eyes
You've got to get back to Jah land (Jah land)
And get a little dirt on your hands
And if you never try, you'll never know
Plant your seeds and it will grow

In this time when there are too many leaders
Not enough farmers
Not enough teachers (calling all the farmer man)
Politicians they all are cheaters
What about the fisherman?

Yes, to all my maka'ainana
He ali'i no keia 'aina
To all my maka'ainana
He ali'i no keia 'aina
Oh farmer man, plant your kalo
Oh fisherman row, fisherman row

In this time when there are too many leaders
Not enough farmers
Not enough teachers
Politicians they all are cheaters
What about the fisherman?
In this time when there are too many leaders
Not enough farmers
Not enough teachers
Politicians they all are cheaters
What about the fisherman?

What about the fisherman?
What about the farmerman, yeah?
Oh farmer man grow
What about the fisherman?
Fisherman row, fisherman row
What about the farmerman, yeah?

Stay away!
