Roots, Rock, Reggae
Pato Banton
Album: Visions Of The World

If reggae music
is the food of life...
Play on!
Come down!

When I wake up in the morning
the first thing I play:
Roots rock reggae!
From the month of June
to the month of May:
Roots rock reggae!
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday,
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday:
Roots rock reggae!
And I know I'm gonna love it
'til I'm old and I'm grey:
Roots rock reggae!

Give it to me now,
give it to me now,
give me the roots rock reggae!
Give it to me now,
give it to me now,
give me the roots rock reggae!

Some like jazz, some like soul,
some like blues or rock & roll.
Some like pop, some like rock,
some like house or hip hop.
When me operator
put the music on the track
me grab the mike and start chat.
Man ina pants, woman ina frocks
get pon the dance floor and start rock.
Time for certain lyrics that are lovey dovey.
Time for certain lyrics that are very funny.
But when it comes to roots and reality
just turn on the mike and give it to...

Give it to me now,
give it to me now,
give me the roots rock reggae!
Give it to me now,
give it to me now,
give me the roots rock reggae!

Roots!
Rock!
Reggae!
Give me the roots!
Rock!
Reggae!

Now Reggae music was originated in Jamaica
by Marley, Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer.
Just to mention a few 'cause there's many, many more
who spread the message of love not war.
That's why reggae music has gone so far
to Europe, China and Africa.
Down under in Australia and in America
there ain't no stopping the music of Jah!

Give it to me now,
give it to me now,
give me the roots rock reggae!
Give it to me now,
give it to me now,
give me the roots rock reggae!

Give it to me now,
give it to me now,
give me the roots rock reggae!
Me now,
give it to me now,
give me the roots rock reggae!
