EARLY B – RIGHTEOUS RASTA

 

Don’t be too greedy
Cause silver and gold will only vanish away
But good knowledge will always stay
Cause memories don’t live like people do
They don’t go away
They always stay with you
Do it

Cah me say when me was a youth
me used to fraid of Rastaman
Cah Mama used to tell me them a blackheart man
Them don’t live a house
Them live a woodland
Them can’t come a street because them fraid ah babylon
The thing weh them smoke it will turn me madman
Say they will cut off me head and put in a kerosene pan

But now me come a man me get fi understand
That Rasta is Life and Salvation
Say Rasta is right and the babylon wrong
Cah babylon would never hurt a Christian
But the slightest thing them would a kill a Iyah One
Or beat him bad and carry him ah station
You have Anglican and you have Christian
You have the Methodist and the Pocomanian
You have the Muslim and the Rastafarian
Say which one ah your religion ?
Hail Jahman

Cah when i was a youth as a little youngster
Them told me that the sky was the house of Jah Jah
But now me come a man and come read Scripture
Me find out that Jah did live ah Africa
That’s why Mama never want me smoke the ganja
Cah when me smoke it me find out me culture
Cah me say give thanks and praise unto Jah X2
Cah there aiiinnnnnntttt no stopping Rastafari
Hail Jah man
Cah there aiiinnnnnntttt no stopping Rastafari

That no right
Cah me say when me used to sight the dread i used to hide my head X2
But now that I’m a man , I wish that I was a dread
Cah some man dread just fi thief one bread
But some man dread cause them a conscious dread
Cah pancoot ah pancoot , coot ah coot
A conscious dread say me know he don’t loot
A conscious dread is a militant youth

Cause when me was a youth me used to hide from the dread
But now me come a man me respect the dread
Sometimes me sit up me meditate and me wonder
I wish I was a righteous Rasta

Cah me say when me was a youth
me used to fraid of Rastaman
Cah Mama used to tell me them a blackheart man
Them can’t come a street because them fraid ah babylon
The thing weh them smoke it will turn me madman
Them don’t live a house
Them live a woodland
Say they will cut off me head and put in a kerosene pan
But now me come a man , me get fi understand
That Rasta is Life and Salvation
Cah babylon would never hurt a Christian
But the first chance them get them would ah kill a Rastaman
Or beat him up bad and carry him ah station

You have Anglican and then you have Christian
You have the Methodist and the Pocomanian
You have the Muslim and the Rastafarian
Say which one ah your religion ?
Hail Jahman , about the one weh a praise up Jahman
Cah me say give thanks and praise unto Jah the King man
