U-Roy – Fly Rasta lyrics
Fly rasta (fly rasta), fly rasta (fly rasta)
Dreader than dread, natty got to hold up you head
Redder than red, say Natty rougher than rough

Take that vow of separation onto the Lord
Drink no strong drink, see no dead
And all the days of your vow of separation
No razor shall come upon your head

Fly rasta (fly rasta), fly rasta (fly rasta)
Rooter than root, natty ever speak the truth
Truther than truth, almighty Jah Jah

Now there's an evil which we've seen under the sun
And it is common among men
For what have the fool more than the wise
Man can't live alone on bread (No way as I would say)
Delight in the laws of Jah Jah (On to the Most High Jah)
And on Jah meditate day and night (Liveth and reigneth in the hearts of every man I-tinually)
Like the tree planted by water (I say back off with your ism, skism and your folly)
Who's leaves never wither

Oh, fly rasta (fly rasta), now fly rasta (fly rasta)
Dreader than dread, so natty redder than red yow
Oh, it redder than red, give thanks and praise each and every day

But I say blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly
Nor standeth in the way of sinners, like I would say
Take a vow of separation
And all the days of your life
Let no razor come up on your head, flash your Natty dread! Fly Natty Dread!

Fly rasta (fly rasta), fly rasta (fly rasta)
Now it red (Natty ever speak the truth yow)
Oh, it redder than red (Natty don't tell no lie)
Now fly Rasta (Natty redder than red yow)
Oh, fly Rasta (Run weh Babylon, tell it to dem)
Root is of the root (Say Natty redder than red yow)
Now the truth is of the truth (Say Natty heavier than led)
