One good thing about music
when it hits you (you feel no pain).
Oh, oh, I say, one good thing about music
when it hits you (you feel no pain).
Hit me with music!
Hit me with music now!

This is:
Trenchtown rock! Don't watch that.
Trenchtown rock! Big fish or sprat now.
Trenchtown rock! You reap what you sow.
Trenchtown rock! And only Jah Jah know.
Trenchtown rock! I'll never turn my back.
Trenchtown rock! I'd give the slum a try.
Trenchtown rock! I'd never let the children cry.
Trenchtown rock! 'Cause you got to tell Jah Jah why.

Grooving! Is Kingston 12.
Grooving! Is Kingston 12.
Grooving! Is Kingston 12 now.
Grooving! Is Kingston 12.

No want you come galang so. Oh no!
No want you fe galang so.
You want come cold I up.
But you can't come cold I up.
Oh, oh, I'm a grooving!
And the world knows by now,
now, now, now, now, now, now, now, yo!

Oh now, I say, you feel no pain now!
One good thing about music
when it hits you (you feel no pain) you feel no pain!
Hit me with music now! Oh now.
Hit me with music now!
Hit me with music! Harder, brutalize me.
Hit me with music!

This is:
Trenchtown rock! I say, don't watch that.
Trenchtown rock! If you a big fish or sprat.
Trenchtown rock! You reap what you sow.
Trenchtown rock! And everyone know now.
Trenchtown rock! Don't turn your back!

Trenchtown rock! But let me tell you behave yourselves!
