SHEM LYRICS

 

I'm not high society but I'm alright

I get high in society so I'm alright

Hey Mr babylon see I'm doing fine

I don't fit in with the others so I'm alright

 

Don't tell me that I have to look like that

Don't tell me that I have to dress like that

Don't tell me that I have to act like that

No way

 

Coz I'm alright I'm alright

I got reggae in the morning and I'm alright

I'm alright I'm alright

Can't you see me smiling

 

I got no degree and I'm alright

"What about your future ?" well I'm alright

I work for His Majesty so I'm alright          

I don't fit in with the others so I'm alright

Just the other day, I was walking down the street

I heard somebody say

Man I'd like to meet the Rasta

Then he crossed the street

He walked right up to me

Then he said, let me ask you a question 

 

Who's that man you got there in your picture

Who's that man you keep singing about

Who's that man you got there on your poster

Can you tell me what all the fuss is about

 

He's the King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Conquering Lion from the tribe of Judah

King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Conquering Lion from the tribe of Judah

He's the King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Conquering Lion from the tribe of Judah

King of Kings, Lord of Lords, You'd better go tell everyone

 

 

Who's that manW

Reggae in the Morning

crown the lion

Zion Way

For a little joy and happiness come Zion way eh

For a little joy and happiness come Zion way eh

For a little joy and happiness come Zion way eh

For a little joy and happiness come Zion way eh

 

Everybody wants joy (joy in their life)

Everybody needs some happiness

Everybody wants joy (joy in their life)

Most a dem a sick of loneliness

 

Open your heart and let Jah Jah in

Let all the good times begin

Open your mind and let Jah Jah in

Rastaman sing

 

Everydody wants truth (truth in their life)

Everybody needs some consciousness

Everydody wants truth (truth in their life)

So why follow the system ?

 

Babylon system mek you feel sad, sad, sad

girl like dat

Whole heap a girls ina babylon

But most a never last till the end

Special dedication to girls like dat

True and true ina ya heart and ina ya soul

for Rastafari

 

I never know I'd (get a girl like dat)

I never know I'd (get a girl like dat)

Live clean, works can be seen

Hail up Selassie is a must

 

I never know I'd (get a girl like dat)

I never know I'd get that queen

But His Majesty knows everything best

Me just do what is right every day

 

Does she rule, like a queen on a throne

Does she put Jah first, never take his Majesty's name in vain

Is she cool, is she the queen of your home 

Does she pray everyday, let Jah lead the way

Is she the best, do you tell her every day

 

Well she wise, she only do what Jah Jah say

And she follow the scripture, respect her elders

na deal with indulence and vanity

And she smooth, she always knows which words to say

She mek me do what she want

She know what she want

She wanna book her place ina holy Mt Zion

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the beginning, Jah built a Rastaman

Jah built a Rastaman

Jah write it down and then him give it to me

Jah built me irie sensi tree

 

He was the only one who planted seed and me no want no liar

With the most high Jah we gonna chant down babylon

While the righteous among us are bubbling here on Mt Zion

And if you sit on the fence, the fence a go come 

Tumblin down in a babylon

 

From Genesis to Exodus and Revelation

In every nation there's falsification, one true direction

Jah say Jah say Jah say dont take anything away

For if you are a wicked man, you'll die a wicked man Jah gonna burn you down

But Jah fire still burn

 

The tree that grow is from the hand that know, I love it so

You must never criticise the truth, Rastaman Knowledge

Only one way to give Jah thanks for his creation

I say you'd better get up, light up, smoke up dont let your ignorance put you down and turn it around

 

 

 

 

 

Roots remember your roots have fe grow ina sodom

Roots remember your roots na go thrive in gomorrah

Roots remember your roots when you down ina sodom

Roote remember your roots, coz yesterday is the future

 

Secular education mek you go blind

and the television really control your mind

Jah Rastafari should be 24/7 ina your heaven

rich man, beggar man, thief, remember your roots

Babylon mek yo go blind

And your day to day activities control your mind

Jah Rastafari should be 24/7 ina your heaven

Hindu, Muslim, Christian remember your roots

 

 

 

 

 

I'm crying out

things are getting rough

I'm crying out

things are getting tough (out deh)

 

Me lock up mi keys ina mi car, then

me wake up so late I miss mi bus

Me hav fe run so fast me drop mi phone

and the taxi driver never stop

It really mek me want to scream and shout

To make things worse mi ganja running out

Me find a big bad dog ina mi yard

and no money in mi pocket when me work so hard

 

Me say "wo yo wo yo" its gonna be alright

"wo yo wo yo"

"wo yo wo yo" we gonna hav a good time tonight

See no sun, what you gonna do

turn it around

Your life's no fun, what you gonna do

turn it around

Got no time, what you gonna do

 turn it around

You got no vibe, what you gonna do

turn it around

You can turn it around, you can turn it around

 

What you gonna do right now

what you gonna do

turn it around

What you gonna do right now

what you gonna do

turn it around

You can turn it around - You can turn it around

 

Work all day, what you gonna do

turn it around

Got no time, what you gonna do

turn it around

But you say you're doing fine, what you gonna do

turn it around

You got no vibe, what you gonna do

turn it around

You can turn it around, you can turn it around

 

What you gonna do right now

what you gonna do

turn it around

I'm curious (I'm a lion), I'm a serious cat

I get furious (I'm a lion), me no stand fe dat

I'm tough and deadly (I'm a lion), got my ammunition

I'm rough and ready (I'm a lion), move into position

 

Roam like a lion

Still like a lion

Cool like a lion

Kill like a lion

 

I'm a lion in the jungle

Coz I'm a lion in the jungle 

Always watch my youth 

I'm a lion in the jungle

Well what about you

lion in the jungle

mystic thing

roll it

I n I rise up to the smell of a daily burning

Some a dem wake up to the bell, it's the slavemaster

calling

9 to 5, what a life

you take the pressure coz you got to survive

Cool your mind, cool your soul, cool a yard I n I get together and

Roll it, Roll it, Roll it

For I no drink dirty water

Jah Rastafari burns in us one and all

I beg you lick it up lick up

Pick up the key to your soul

All around majority corruption, money keeps the truth

well hidden

Creating an illusion, but the vision I see is as clear as

can be

 

Roll it, Roll it, Roll it

For I no drink dirty water

jah calling

T

So let me say this now

What you have is what you have, and if you can't get it

Na fret it, for you don't need it

Jah is my shepherd and I shall never want

So right now me a jus have fe chant it fe let all the people 

hear it

So tell me WHO a Jah Jah calling

Hail I HIM, Rastafari

Tell me who a Jah Jah calling

Tell me who a Jah Jah call, nowadays

Tell me who a Jah Jah calling in a my heights
Tell me who a Jah Jah call

In a babylon down down  what a revelation

Down in a babylon I hear a voice say come come come so

I try fe do no wrong no wrong

Live up right in a Jah's eyes                                                       Natty do no wrong shoop shoop

Humbleness could never be a silent man

 

Not every man that say Jah

a go be a messenger

Not every man that have dreads

Carry truths inside him head

I know you look a little bit sad

but don't get me down

And if you had a really bad day

don't let me down

You got so many things on your mind

but don't get me down

I need a positive vibration

so don't get me down

Don't get me down

I need some positivity so don't get me down

(don't get me) Don't get me down

Don't get me down

You got up on the wrong side of bed

but don't get me down

You're stuck in your 9 to 5

so don't let me down

You need a little more out of life

but don't get me down

I need a positive vibration

so don't get me down

(don't get me) Don't get me down

Don't get me down

I need some positivity so don't get me down
