Shabba Ranks – Roots And Culture lyrics

United we stand and divided we fall
Black man know yourself before your back is against the wall

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 and 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 everything from Shabba mouth is slack
I love roots and reality straight to the max
Because I'm a article oil abash

I love me Roots and Culture
To teach all deh youngster
Honor your mother and father
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 and 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 Rankin', 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 and 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 and Culture
Is a new page me turn over
Mek up mi mind to teach the youngster
Teach the youth dem 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 and 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 and Peter
Jimmy the Pioneer in Jamaica

Know about your Roots and yuh Culture
Else you will fade out forever
Live good in your neighborhood
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 and reality straight from the max
Because I am a article oil abash

Ah, love me Roots and Culture
It's 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
Wine up yuh line if yuh love culture
Tell Shabba to stop being vulgar
Change up mi style and ah change mi order
Have the lyrics now to teach the youngster
