Roots & Culture - Shabba Ranks

 

Ah soh yuh stay

 

Yuh ongle ah tink one way

 

But I'm not a one way DJ

 

Coin Two side

 

Get that

 

Hear dis

 

Shabba Rankin reggae people's callin' out

People from east west north and south

Say I'm the MC with the nasty mouth

Dem feel like is pure slackness

Alone I can talk about

I know me roots & culture

Who is the route Robert Nesta

 

And Bunny Wailer follow after

 

It is music mi charge for

 

Look how deh world noh stop suffer

 

What have black people under pressure

 

Some talk dis and some talk dat

Say everyting from Shabba mouth is slack

I love roots and reality straight to the max

Because I'm a article oil-abash

I love deh roots & culture

 

To teach all deh youngster

 

And all yeh mudda and fader

 

So dat yuh days will be longer

 

Some talk dat and some talk dis

Nuff ah dem ah fight 'gainst slackness lyrics

 

You have to please John Public

When you're dealin' with deh Reggae music

 

Shabba Rankin you a murder

 

And it is music you charge for

 

Want to be a musical Ambassador

 

Ah goin' teach all yeh youngster

 

Here dis

Some of dem ah bawl how dem want culture

And some of dem waah people be vulgar

I rather to stick to I culture

Than to be a dirty character

I love me roots & culture

 

I goin' teach all yeh youngster

 

It's a new page the Ranks turn over

 

Teach 'em just like a teacher

 

Make them listen to me like a pastor

Woy yo

Shabba Rank in all reggae people callin' out

People from east west north and south

Say I'm deh MC with deh nasty mouth

Dem feel like is pure slackness

Alone I can talk about

Know me roots & culture

 

See how black people a suffer

 

It's what have black people under pressure

 

Just because we don't stick together

 

Woy yo

United we stand and divided we fall

Black man know yourself

Before your back is against the wall

Ten time rise and ten time fall

Oh Shabba is stronger then

Deh great China wall

Know me roots & culture

 

Is a new page me turn over

 

Mek up mi mind to

Teach the youngster

 

Teach the youth dem jus' like a teacher

 

Make dem listen to the Ranks like a pastor

 

Some talk dis and some talk dat

Say everyting from me mouth is slack

 

I love roots & reality straight to the max

Me can't understan'

How black can kill black

I know me roots and culture

 

Who is the root Robert Nesta

 

And Bunny Wailer follow after

 

What about Jacob & Peter

 

Jimmy the Pioneer in Jamaica

 

Know about you roots and yuh culture

 

Or else you will fade out forever

 

Live good in your neighbourhood

Live good and live good as you should

Shabba Rankin you a murder

 

It is music me charge for

 

Some talk dis and some talk dat

Say everyting from Shabba mouth is slack

 

I love roots & reality straight from the max

Because I am a article oil-abash

Ah love me roots & culture

 

Its a new page I turn over

 

Teach the youth dem like a teacher

 

Make dem listen to the Ranks like a pastor

 

Come now

See you just

Jump aroun' if you love culture

 

You love culture you ah goh free Mandela

Come now
