Bunny Wailer – Rasta Man lyrics
Them kill Limumba for his own-a-rights,
But them can't kill the Rasta Man at all, 'tall, 'tall.
Them can't kill the Rasta Man at all.

That's the strangest man I've seen.
(That's because he's a Rasta Man)
Having the mark of a Nazarine.
(That's because he's a Rasta Man)
He carries a prophetical message.
(That's because he's a Rasta Man)
Borning out of time and out of age.
(That's because he's a Rasta Man)

The Rasta come from Zion.
Rasta Man a Lion.
(Oh what a Rasta Man) (repeat)

Remember Jeremiah children.
(He was a Rasta Man)
Or even Iziah.
(He was a Rasta Man)
Moses in the pit of mud.
(He was a Rasta Man)

Trodding from Buzrak with his garments dipped in blood.
(He was a Rasta Man)

Oh what a dread, dread whola one,
The Rasta Man come from Zion.
What a strange, what a dread, but a righteous man,
The Rasta Man, him come from Zion.
What a dread, dread up-full one,
The Rasta Man come from Zion.

What a dread-black, dread-lock one,
The Rasta Man come from Zion.

Lightening!
Seven years years of famine for seven years of plenty
Is like two grains of wheat for one bale of barley.
A hand-full of corn shall be on the hillside
And with that you've got to be satisfied.

It was Elijha who prayed that it did not rain.
(He was a Rasta Man)
He prayed and the rains came again.
(He was a Rasta Man)
It was Joshua who commanded the sun stand still.
(He was a Rasta Man)
He did that according to his Master's will.
(Who was a Rasta Man)

What a dread, dread whola one,
The Rasta Man come from Zion.
What a strange, what a dread, but a up-full one.
The Rasta Man come from Zion.
What a black, dread up-full one.
The Rasta Man come from Zion.
What a strange, dread-lock one.
The Rasta Man come from Zion.

What a dread, what a dread, what a whola one.
The Rasta Man come from Zion.
What a dread, dread lightening one.
The Rasta Man come from Zion.
What a strange dread, dread earthquake one.
The Rasta Man come from Zion.
