Wha gwan mi bruddah
(What’s going on my brother)

Nuff respect pon ya
(Much respect to you)

Irie
(nice… good… pleasing)

CHORUS
Got work to do now haven’t we seen enough
can’t let hate corrupt us
now its time to open our hearts
and see that what we really need is trust
and a little help from above.

VERSE
We both know
it wasn’t long ago
when we worked together
and even though we had troubles
I knew that you were my brother

We find ourselves so far apart
but its now or never
in the end I believe we can win

We can fix this thing together
the future’s not set in stone

Lets heal this thing forever
cause one day we’re all
going “home”
it won’t be long….

CHORUS
Got work to do now haven’t we seen enough?
can’t let hate corrupt us
now its time to open our hearts
and see that what we really need is trust
and a little help from above.


…… i was raised

Gregory Abbott (Shake You Down) with Dorothy Moore (Misty Blue)

My talented friend Dorothy Moore (of “Misty Blue” fame) will be gracing us all with a wonderful new release due out in a few months. We are all excited about it and I had the pleasure of writing a song for her to be included in the collection. This woman can really “saaang”. When we toured together, she brought the house down every night. Be on the lookout.

I was raised. I didn’t just grow up. I was taught to speak when I enter a room, say please and thank you, to have respect for my elders and let the elder in the room have my chair, say ‘yes sir’ and ‘no sir’, lend a helping hand to those in need, hold the door for the person behind me, say “excuse me’ when it’s needed and to love people for who they are and not for what I can get from them. I was also taught to treat people the way I want to be treated.

How about you?

This is: “Middle of Harlem”

Happy fall…

I hope you enjoy the upcoming holidays with family and friends. Remember that we are all people and (if you can) take the time to lend a hand… do a kind deed… help a friend or a stranger. For us here in “Abbott ville” the holidays represent gratitude… I am grateful for my life… my friends… my family and you.

“Treat each other how you would like to be treated”… That’s is how my parents raised me.

A simple kind word can often mean a lot….

Be well y’all

Musically yours, Gregory
