Proud To Be A Dread - Des'ree

Tafari tries to get a job

Ten letters behind his name

Born up in the cornfields

Tafari doesn't know the game

The game is no respect for life

Even less for rules

Winners only need apply

Sorry no rooms for fools

Tafari looks up to the stars and

Wonders if there's life on Mars

Some say he should shave his head

But he's proud to be a dread

'Cos I'll be better I'll be stronger

For the truth I know takes longer

I've the cunning of the tiger

And the Wisdom of the trees

I won't be sad refuse the sorrow

I look forward to tomorrow

I'll release my anger

'Cos I'm proud to be a dread

Selassie tries to find a home

To rest his weary head

A place where he can take his girl

To share this spiritual bed

When he's greeted at the door

The sign has changed his tune

Though the queen is full of child

Sorry there's no room

Selassie looks up to the clouds

He curses hard and shouts out loud

Remembering his father's words

A whisper from the dead

'Cos I'll be better I'll be stronger

For the truth I know takes longer

I've the cunning of the tiger

And the wisdom of the trees

I won't be sad refuse the sorrow

I look forward to tomorrow

I'll release my anger

'Cos I'm proud to be a dread

'Cos in this life you have to take a chance

Why else live at all

'Cos in this life to climb a mountain

Sometimes expect to fall

'Cos in this life nothing comes easy

If it does it has a price

'Cos in this life a martyr suffers

Look at Jesus Christ

Leo faces many trials

But hold hid head up high

He won't allow the hatred

To Make his spirit cry

Leo looks up to the moon

Sitting in its silver spoon

Maybe I should change my job

Be an astronaut instead

'Cos I'll be better I'll be stronger

For the truth I know takes longer

I've the cunning of the tiger

And the wisdom of the trees

I won't be sad refuse the sorrow

I look forward to tomorrow

I'll release my anger

'Cos I'm proud to be a dread

 

I'll release my anger

'Cos I'm proud to be a dread

'Cos I'll be better I'll be stronger

 

For the truth I'll be a seeker

I've the cunning of the tiger

And the wisdom of the trees

In my dealings I'll be honest

To myself I make this promise
