Bob Marley, Augustinian

The song from which the title of my recent Augustine post was drawn -- and what a gorgeous song it is! (Go download it if you've never heard it -- I know the version from Babylon by Bus.)
No chains around my feet,
But I'm not free, oh-ooh!
I know I am bound here in captivity;
G'yeah, now - I've never known happiness;
I've never known what sweet caress is -
Still, I'll be always laughing like a clown;
Won't someone help me? 'Cause I (sweet life) -
I've got to pick myself from off the ground
(must be somewhere for me), he-yeah! -
In this a concrete jungle:
I said, what do you cry for me now, o-oh!
Concrete jungle, ah, won't you let me be, now.
