MIKEY GENERAL – ROOTS ROCKING REGGAE

 

Uuuh! Uuuh! Uuuh!
Roots rocking, roots rocking reggae tonight
Roots rocking, reggae music mek me feel so nice
Yeeaah!

When I remember all the stalwarts
Who set the pace
They went thru so much trouble
And them I have to embrace
So many worked so hard, and they never get no reward, no
They spread the message at home and abroad
A Larry Marshall set it
U-Roy dem mek it
Techniques, Uniques and The Wailers
And don’t you forget it
Nooo!

Roots rocking, roots rocking reggae tonight
Roots rocking, reggae music mek me feel so nice

WELL Some likkle hurry come up youths
A gwaan like dem want DISS the roots
And tek the music inna DISREPUTE
And to the elders dem nah give no tributes
We stand on the shoulders, of those who came before
And if we follow their footsteps
Then we will endure
A Desmond Dekker set it
What about the great Alton Ellis
John Holt, Slim Smith and Ken Boothe
A dem man dem mek it!

Roots rocking, roots rocking reggae tonight
Roots rocking, reggae music mek me feel so nice

Play Mr. Music! Play the music sweet, yeah!
They set the trends, from way back when
They deserve the honor for flying the Reggae Banner
Big Youth dem set it
Freddie McGregor dem mek it
Dennis Brown, Gregory Issacs and Sugar Minott
We must not forget, no!
