Default Since when Did UB40 sing Oh Baby I Love Your Way?

This is a crazy thing to ask but Since When Have they sung that song in question I know the song is OK but I thought Big Mountain sang it but I have found on some websites it claims UB40 sung it. Is there a cover version of the song that I have not heard before that is very rare.

UB40 have never done a cover of that song. It's a Big Mountain tune, but I've noticed that quite a lot of people over the years on different websites have wrongly attributed it to UB40. Obviously, the people who make that mistake aren't big reggae fans.

Another one I have seen on various websites that people claim UB40 have sung

Inner Circle: Sweat (A La La La La Long)
& Worse
Bobby McFerrin: Don't Worry Be Happy (Maybe the other camp can cover that one).

I will be honest here but I would rather hear some new originals than covers. Although there are some good songs for the band to cover but there are good song writers in the band. Brian, Robin, Jimmy. Did Duncan write the new words to How Can a Poor Man Stand Such Time And Live? In that case he is a good writer as well.
