(Wake up and...)
(Wake up and...)
(Wake up and...) Wake up and turn I loose,
For the rain is fallin'!

Got to have kaya now (kaya, kaya),
Got to have kaya now (kaya, kaya)
Got to have kaya now (kaya, kaya),
For the rain is fallin'!

We-e-e-e-e-ell, I feel so high, I even touch the sky
Above the fallin' rain!
I feel so good in my neighbourhood, so:
Here I come again!

I've got to have kaya now (kaya, kaya),
Got to have kaya now (kaya, kaya)
I've got to have kaya now (kaya, kaya),
For the rain is fallin'!

Wo-wo-oh! Yea-ea-ea-eah! I feel so high, I even touch the sky
Above the fallin' rain, we-e-ell!
I feel so good in my neighbourhood, so:
Here I come again!

I've got to have kaya now!
I've got to have kaya now!
I've got to have kaya now,
For the rain is fallin'!

Get up and turn I loose;
Wake up and turn I loose;
Wake up and turn I loose,
For the rain is fallin'.

We-e-ell, kaya, man! (kaya, kaya)
Kaya, man! (kaya, kaya)
Got to have kaya now (kaya, kaya),
For the rain is... rain is fallin'!
Wake up and turn I loose;
Wake up and turn I loose.
/fadeout/

    "kaya means herb. It's a password some of the brethren use in ja. So kaya is really dealing with togetherness and humanity and peace, (because) the thing of peace travel through the earth now. Yes, rastaman vibrations and exodus were 'arder. This time we dealing with something softer.

    kaya- could mean many things. give the man some credit- the most obvious is weed / ganja, however, I think marley was a bit...a lot "deeper" than that. home, spiritual presence or force, God.
