A-side a vocal,
B-side a version.
Hear the
boof through the
bass, hear the ssss
through the horn.
A sound is not a sound
without a mid section.
Like a house is not a home
without a television.
If you don't believe me
ask my woman.
She will tell you when me
mash up the tele, when me
mash up the tele, when me
mash up the television.
Is like the whole house
was in contention.
The kids were giving me
a lot of botheration.
Barling waah! waah! waah!
I wanna see Batman
A-Team, Danger Mouse
and He-Man.
There was only one way
I could solve the problem.
Which was to catch a taxi
down to redifusion.
Rent a tele take it home
and plug it in and turn it on.
When my woman see the tele
she say honey you fe
just, just, just, just,
just, just, just gwarn!

Gwarn! Gwarn!

Me mommy show me loving
from the day that me born.
Full me belly, clean me batty,

She open up the Bible
on the 23rd psalm
and put it in me cot
for spiritual protection.
Me mommy raise the babies

M. O. N. E. Y.
me daddy raise corn.
I got infant, junior,
secondary education.
Got expelled in the fourth

Try a couple jobs
but them never lasted long.
One day me mommy ask me
this one question:
"Bwoy weh a go do
when you turn a big man?"
Me said: "Mommy you fe listen
and don't get me wrong.
I'm not gonna be a worker
or a politician.

She smiled, she kissed me,
she wrapped me in her arms, she said:

An M. C. is not a Banton
without style and pattern.
To get an answer
you have to ask a question.
What is Pato middle name?
Origination.
Around the microphone
me have presentation.
Me have more lyrics
than desert have sand.
More lyrics than water
in the Mediterranean.
More lyrics than fish
inna de wide ocean.
Pato lyrics pon a scale
must weight a ton.
This is a fact
and not fiction.
With maybe a little
exaggeration.
Every mickle mek a muckle
every muckle mek a mickle.
Pupa pato have principle
ride bicycle not tricycle.
Ugly woman you fe settle
me no want no gyal with freckle.
Or a gyal that miserable
for that would be so terrible.
Unto Jah Jah I am thankful
thanks and praise they are essential.
Of the devil I am careful
cause I know he is so evil.
Well a lot of racial people
they give praises to the devil.
And even have a ritual
unto Jah that is abominable.
Before me come a dancehall
man a strictly radox herbal.
Well up and down me brush me teeth
to make them look beautiful.
A little bit of honey
to fix up Pato's vocals.
Then it's off to the dance
to jump and prance and
wiggle and jiggle,
wiggle and jiggle,
wiggle and jiggle,
wiggle and jiggle,
wiggle and jiggle and dance.
When the people see me dance
them a tell me fe
just, just, just, just,
just, just, just gwarn!

Gwarn! Gwarn!
Gwarn! Gwarn!
Gwarn!
Gwarn! Flash it!
Gwarn!
