Jimmy Cliff – Roots Radical lyrics
(Roots Radical) x2,

I'm a radical, (roots radical)
I'm a true born Jamacan,
Yes, I'm a radical (roots radical),
And I'm miles away from home.

I'm a radical, (roots radical)
I'm a true born Jamacan,
Yes, I'm a radical (roots radical),
And I'm miles away from home.

They won't see me round the corner,
They can't catch me on the straight.
They won't see me round the corner,
They can't catch me on the straight.

Cause I'm a radical, (roots radical)
Cause I'm a true born Jamacan,
Yes, I'm a radical (roots radical),
And I'm miles away from home.

The Babylon system get I down,
I'll own the well when they lock I in a cell,
The Babylon system get us down,
Oh what the hell when the rice won't swell.

I'm a radical, radical (roots radical),
And I'm a royal African man,
I'm a radical (roots radical),
And I'm miles away from home.

(roots radical) x4

Ain't no stops, no traps, no barriers
Can stop me on my way,
And if they try to hurt me,
I'll just up and fly away.

Cause I'm a radical, (roots radical)
Cause I'm a true born Jamacan,
Yes, I'm a radical (roots radical),
And I'm miles away from home.

The Babylon system teach us wrong,
Wanting us all to sing their song.
The Babylon system teach us wrong,
Wanting us all to fool around.

But I'm a radical, radical (roots radical)
Cause I'm a royal African man,
I'm a radical (roots radical),
And I'm miles away from home.

(roots radical) x2

Miles away from home.....

(roots radical) x2

Miles away from home.....

(roots radical) x2

Miles away from home.....

(roots radical)

Radical (roots radical),
Natural African man
A radical, a radical (roots radical),
And I'm miles away from home.

Cause I'm a radical (roots radical),

Miles away from home.....

I'm a radical (roots radical),
I'm a true born Jamacan,
Yes, I'm a radical (roots radical),
And I'm miles away from home.

Miles away from home.....

(roots radical)
