Lyrics

NATTY SOLDIER

Written By: Ajahni

Natty, Natty, Natty, Natty Soldier, in America - Natty, Natty, Natty, Natty Soldier coming from Ethiopia. War going on, in Massachusetts, in Massachusetts, Lord. Robot in the street, ale mande Antoinette, sa se porole prophet, sa se porole prophet. Ahaitian them a flee, them a flee, to Boston city, Boston city, Boston city – TV pay for more, ghetto youth are fighting a war, TV pay for more, Rasta man can’t take it no more. Traveling, traveling to Pennsylvania, traveling traveling to Canada…traveling, traveling to Mississippi, traveling, traveling to Germany. Selessie give, the wicked man divide, it’s man’s greed who cause another man to die. They make it so hard for I and I to survive, everywhere I go, it’s strive, strive, strive. Emanuel I, when will righteousness come? Marcus Garvey when will justice be done? Vanity is what them paying for, pretending to end the war. Traveling...war going on...

YOU NEVER KNOW

Written By: Ajahni

You never know, you never know. You never know before you know, Lord. You never know what life has in store for you. You could be homeless or cruising inna Benz. Taking the bus, chilling with your sistren. Working real hard trying to make ends. You never know what life has in store for you. Opportunity always think is at your door. You can be wrong so listen to this one. Positive thinking is surely number one. You never know if your dream can come true. The only way to know is to believe in you. Your wish is your command so follow your dream. I and I tell the story, so listen to what me sing. Believe in yourself you’re the one with the power. Power. Coming straight from the almighty Jah, Jah. Life can be hard there’s no need to be stressed. Close your eyes, relax, lay back and just rest. If it’s Sensi that you want, I will run and get it...

LET IT BURN

Keep the ganja lit, keep it lit, keep it lit, yah. Know one day my sensi must be free. As long as I got my herb I’m gonna burn it you see. As long as I got my herb I can see Selassie. You can’t kill my black herb, no, no, no. You must let it grow, grow, grow, grow, grow. Cote boz la foundations of creations, cote boz la foundations of Mount Zion. Now I’m feeling nice, Jah give light to my eyes. You can’t come criticize, You can’t come criticize, na, na, na, no. Smoke me herb on a Monday, smoke me herb on a Tuesday, smoke me herb on a Wednesday, smoke me herb on a Thursday, Smoke me herb on a Monday, smoke me herb on a Tuesday, smoke me herb on a Wednesday, smoke me herb on a Thursday. The black herb, foundations of Creation, the black herb, Mount Zion. The black herb, foundations of Creation, the black herb, man Zion. Take me high, over the rainbow, Lift me high, voyem piro, voyem piro. Take me high, over the rainbow, Lift me high, voyem piro, voyem piro.
