Vital Spot
I'm Addicted
Pato Banton
Album: Wize Up! (No Compromize)

I say eeny meeny miny mo man.
I'm gonna hold on tight and never let go
to the rhythm of the drum and the bass line
that sends sweet musical shivers down my spine.
Sweet music is out of sight.
I say it blows my mind like a dynamite.
I gotta have it by day
then I gotta have it by night
and if I don't then you know I'm gonna get uptight.

Cause I'm addicted.
Addicted to the vibe
of the sweet reggae music.
I'm addicted.
Addicted to the vibe
of the sweet reggae.

Well P. B. that's me classical M. C.
I'm in a style of my own universally.
Now here I come from the underground
with a crucial vibe and an awesome sound.
I'm gonna shout Yeah!
I'm gonna scream out loud
I'm gonna get to high places
and stand up proud.
But I won't forget where I came from
cause with my brothers
and my sisters is where I belong.
Like the king in the ring Muhammed Ali
I'm gonna "float like a butterfly
and sting like a bee".
Like the king of reggae music Mr. Bob Marley
I'm gonna spread the word universally.
To the north to the south
to the east or the west.
There is something that I must confess.
Some people get a kick out of doing a line
I get high on the drum and the bass line.

Cause I'm addicted.
Addicted to the vibe
of the sweet reggae music.
I'm addicted.
Addicted to the vibe
of the drum and the bass line.

Now all ghetto brethren
easy ragamuffin youth.
And all homeboy
in this state hold on tight.
Ca' right now me addicted
not to no badness
but strictly to positive vibes.

I say hi de hi (hi de hi)
ho de ho (ho de ho).
There's something the media should know. What?
We need more reggae on the radio!
Cause who feels it knows it and I've been hurt.
I got married to the music for better or worse.
For richer for poorer 'til death do us part.
Believe it's coming straight from my heart
when I say:

I'm addicted.
Addicted to the vibe
of the sweet reggae music.
I'm addicted.
Addicted to the vibe
of the drum and the bass line.

I'm addicted.
I'm addicted.
Addicted to the sound
of the drum and the bass line.

Easy all crew!
One love!
One Jah!
One aim!
Gwarn!
