Stephen Marley – Inna Di Red lyrics

I didn't get no sleep at all last night
My shoulders were as heavy as lead
I felt something was just not right
I had to roll a little spliff for my head

So I took a walk inside
Talked to I, I self
Trying to ease these pains of mine
Oh, Jah give I strength

And if a egg, natty inna di red
And if a egg, natty inna di red
Rasta inna it, egg, natty inna di red
And if a egg, natty inna di red

Eh, now I'm in a irie place
Now I'm in a irie space
Now I man can I dictate
Free ourselves from all that hate

Now I'm in an irie state
Now I man can I dictate
Free ourselves from all that hate
Bless them with Jah love and grace

And if a egg, natty inna di red
And if a egg, natty inna di red
Rasta inna it, egg, egg, natty inna di red
And if a egg, natty inna di red

Eh, I didn't get no sleep at all first night, no
My shoulders we as heavy as lead
I felt something was just not right
Had to roll a little zig for my head, yeah

So I took a walk inside
Talk to I, I self
Free I from this frame of mind
Oh Jah, give I strength

And if a egg, natty inna di red
And if a egg, natty inna di
C'mon man and if a egg, natty inna di red
And if a egg, natty inna di red

None shall escape Jah judgment
Jah judgment's gonna call on you
Red eye, red eye, red eye
Red eye, you're gonna turn to blue

None shall escape Jah judgment
Jah judgment's gonna fall on you
Red eye, red eye, red eye
Red eye, you're gonna turn to blue

So when we call Him Rastafari
What shall we contend with?
Heathen nah like Jah name

    And if a egg, natty inna di red,.
    Stephen marley recalls bob marley the best here. The voices are so similar, it's not haunting, but destiny.
    The egg symbolizes the beginning of life. And the song seems to be a conversation on the importance of jah and rastafari to the writer/singer.
    The writer is not apologizing for his spiritual, practical and cultural beliefs. In fact, he was born this way. When he was an egg, the rasta entered it. He was born to be at peace, but growing up in life, there's a lot going on and this song is a return to that spiritual place of rastafari.
