Culture – Rastaman A Come lyrics

They just a stretch them neck
Across the fences
Just to see when the Rastaman a come

They just a stretch them neck
Across the fences
Just to see when the Rastaman a come

You have got to be clean inside
You have got to be united
Just to see when the Rastaman a come

You have got to have charity
And love within your heart
Just to see when the Rastaman a come

Can't be no prostitute living
You have got to be clean and upful and right
Just to see when the Rastaman a come

Can't be grudgeful nah red eye
Nah licky-licky nah eat swine
Just to see when the Rastaman a come

(Chant)

You've got to have a stretch out hand
To receive in your strange brother
Just to see when the Rastaman a come

The thing can't be too small
To share amongst your brother
Just to see when the Rastaman a come

I would even be a footmat in Mount Zion
And lay down
Just to see when the Rastaman a come

I will beat my drum
And I will sit on the sand on the listening shore of Jamaica

Just to see when the Rastaman a come

They took me from Africa
And leave us here on a pirate boat
Just to see when the Rastaman a come

My children, children, children
Shall give a testimony of his life
Just to see when the Rastaman a come

We'll beat salvation drum from shore to shore
From door to door
Just to see when the Rastaman a come

Iration drum is not a seed on the rich man table
But on the table of the poor
Just to see when the Rastaman a come

Lick it Dread
Selassie I
To see when the Rastaman a come

Sound ye the trumpet of Zion
That the inhasitant of Earth may tremble
Just to see when the Rastaman a come

It's not a big sound
Neither a small sound
To see when the Rastaman a come

It's not a jigsaw
Neither a puzzle
To see when the Rastaman a come

Me no have fi have no spliff
Me no have fi have no pipe
To see when the Rastaman a come
