Vital Spot
Rastaman
Bunny Wailer
Album: Blackheart Man

Them kill Limumba for his own own-a-rights
but them can't kill the rastaman at all, 't all, 't all.
Them can't kill the rastaman at all.

That's the strangest man I've seen
(that's because he's a rastaman)
Having the mark of a nazarene
(that's because he's a rastaman)
He carries a prophetical message
(that's because he's a rastaman)
Borning out of time and out of age
(that's because he's a rastaman)

The rasta come from Zion, rastaman a Lion!
Dread dread (the rastaman)
Rasta come from Zion, rastaman a Lion!
Him irie (the rastaman)

Remember Jeremiah children (he was a rastaman)
Or even Isaiah (he was a rastaman)
Moses in the pit of mud (he was a rastaman)
Trodding from Buzrak
with his garments dipped in blood (he was a rastaman)

Oh what a dread, dread, whola one,
the rastaman come from Zion.
What a strange, what a dread, what a righteous man,
the rastaman him come from Zion.
What a dread, dread up-full one,
the rastaman come from Zion.
What a dread, black, dreadlock one,
the rastaman come from Zion.

Lightning!
Seven 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 rastaman)
He prayed and the rains came again (he was a rastaman)
It was Joshua who commanded the sun stand still (he was a rastaman)
He did that according to his Master's will (he was a rastaman)

What a dread, dread whola one,
the rastaman come from Zion.
What a strange, what a dread, what a up-full one,
the rastaman come from Zion.
What a black, dread, up-full one,
the rastaman come from Zion.
What a strange, dreadlock one,
the rastaman come from Zion.
What a dread, dread, up-full one,
the rastaman come from Zion.
