the time has come lyrics – ub40

there is no time to sit around and wait
don’t you know the world, it is of love and of hate
now is the time, we’ve got to be strong, we can’t go wrong
because the time has come, the time has come to be free can’t you see

shup doo doop, shup doo doop doop doo, oh
shup doo doop, oh, shup doo doop doop doo doo doo

don’t you know the cheating, the killing, backbiting it cannot help
’cause can’t you see them problems, it’s everyday
they’ve got to solve themselves
’cause now is the time, we gotta be strong, we can’t go wrong
because the time has come, the time has come to be free can’t you see

shup doo doop, shup doo doop doop doo, oh
shup doo doop, oh, shup doo doop doop doo doo doo

tic toc tic, toc tic, toc tic, toc tic
said, “the time has gone”
said the cheating and the killing, backbiting gone
said, “tic tic tic toc said the time has gone”
well, you gotta be strong, said, “you gotta be wrong”

said, “tic tic tic toc said the time has gone”
said, “you gotta be strong”, said you gotta be wrong”
said, “tic tic tic toc said the time has gone, you gotta be strong”
said, “you gotta be wrong”

there is no time to sit around and wait
don’t you know the world, it is of love and of hate
’cause now is the time, we’ve got to be strong, we can’t go wrong
because the time has come, the time has come to be free can’t you see

shup doo doop, shup doo doop doop doo, oh
shup doo doop, oh, shup doo doop doop doo doo doo

shup doo doop, shup doo doop doop doo, oh
shup doo doop, oh yeah, shup doo doop doop doo doo doo
