Album: Natty Dread

Dread, natty dread, now.
Dreadlock Congo bongo I.
Natty dreadlock in a Babylon.
A dreadlock Congo bongo I.

Eh! Children get your culture
and don't stay there and gesture.
Or the battle will be hotter
and you won't get no supper.

Natty dread, natty dread, now.
A dreadlock Congo bongo I.
Natty dreadlock in a Babylon.
Roots natty, roots natty.

Then I walk up the 1st street.
And then I walk up the 2nd street to see.
Then I trod on through 3rd street.
And then I talk to some dread on 4th street.
Natty dreadlock in a 5th street.
And then I skip one fence to 6th street.
I've got to reach 7th street.
Natty dreadlock Binghi bongo I.

Natty dread, natty dread, now.
Roots natty Congo I.

Oh!
Oh, natty, natty!
Natty 21,000 miles away from home. Yeah!
Oh, natty, natty!
And that's a long way
for natty to be from home.

Don't care what the world seh
I and I couldn't never go astray.
Just like a bright and sunny day
oh we're gonna have things our way.

Natty dread, natty dreadlock.
Dreadlock Congo bongo I.

Don't care what the world seh
I and I gonna have things our way.

If a egg natty in a the red.
If a egg natty in a the red.
Natty dread, natty dreadlock.
