HONOURABLE NATTY DREAD

BY

ALBERT WILLIAMS

 

FROM OUT OF THIS EARTH, IN EVERY GENERATION
MUST ARISE A MIGHTY PROPHET...
SO DON'T YOU HAVE NO FEAR, YOU HAVE DONE YOUR SHARE, YOU ARE THE HONOURABLE
NATTY DREAD.

YOU BROUGHT US OUT FROM IGNORANCE,
AND FOR THIS WE WILL THANK YOU HONESTLY.
ALTHOUGH WE KNOW THAT IT WAS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE THAT MANY WOULD BE
CALLED,BUT ONLY FEW OF THEM WOULD BE CHOOSEN.
ROBERT NESTA MARLEY, HE LIVED HIS LIFE FOR WE.
AND NOW WE HAVE GROWN,

WE ARE THE SEEDS HE HAS SHOW, TILLED BY HIS IMPERIAL
MAGESTY.
OH BROTHER BOB YOU WERE ONE.
YOU WORKED FROM DAWN TILL DAWN.
NOW IN THE PHYSICAL YOU HAVWE GONE, BUT IN THE SPIRIT YOU WILL CARRY ON,
THE WORKS OF MARCUS GARVEY.



NOW BOB ARISE,
OPEN THY EYES.
BECAUSE WE WANT YOU TO KNOW, I 'n' I HAVE DISCOVERED YOUR FOE,
TRAMPLED BENEATH THY FEET.

SO IF YOUR TRODDING IN A STREET,
OR IN A HIGH MOUNTAIN.
DON'T YOU HAVE NO SHAME,
REGGAE MUSIC HAS BROUGHT YOU FAME,
YOU ARE THE HONOURABLE NATTY DREAD.

(C)1982, 1996, 2006 ALBERT WILLIAMS

 

 

 





 

 

 

BABYLON SYSTEM
BY ALBERT WILLIAMS


YOU TOO RUDE
OH WHAT A RAT RACE.
BAYLON SYSYTEM IS VAMPIRE
BUT
I'M A DUPPY CONQUEREOR
RASTAMAN LIVE UP, LIVE
IF YOU WANT TO LIVE.ZION TRAIN IS COMING OUR WAY.
JAH LOVE PROTECT US



I WANT TO GIVE YOU SOME LOVE.
BUT THE BABYLON SYSYTEM IS A
VAMPIRE
WOULD MAKE THE SYSTEM FIGHT AGAINST YOUR BROTHER MAN...

OH NO! OH NO! DREAD NO!
TURN YOUR LIGHTS DOWN LOW, LET ME TELL YOU WHAT
I KNOW.
THEY SAY LOVE IS STREAM THAT WILL FIND ITS COURSE.
JAH LOVE PROTECT US.

AND NOW I KNOW WHO IS THE REAL REVOLUTIOINAIRES
BUT WHO'S GONNA STAY AT HOME
WHEN THE FREEDOM FIGHTERS ARE FIGHTING.

BABYLON IS VAMPIRE SUCKING ING THE CHILDREN
DAY BY DAY
BUT THE GIFT OF JAH IS LIFE
JAH LOVE PROTECT US.

DONíT WORRY
BY ALBERT WILLIAMS
 

( In celebration of the 25th year of the ascending of Robert Nesta Marley toZion.)

 

Donít worry about a thing

Every little thing will be alright.

Zion train is coming our way Jah will be waiting there.

 

Donít worry about a thing.

Who Jah bless no man curse.

Where I am thou shall abide

Blood is thicker than water.

 

Donít worry about a thing.

We Jah people can make things work.

When one door is closed many more are open.

I want you to know that that Iím a rainbow too.

 

Donít worry about a thing

Because no of then can stop the time.

I know that Jah will never let us down,

And weíre jamming in the name of the Lord.

 

Donít worry about a thing.

Because the biggest man you ever did see was just a baby.

Itís a new feeling, itís new day,

And we just canít live in a negative way.

 

Donít worry about a thing.

Some will hate you pretend they love you.

These are the big fish

Who always eat up the small fish

And weíre moving right out of Babylon.

 

Donít worry about thing

Though there so much trouble in the world.

The hotter the battle,  the sweeter the victory.

But we know that we shall win,

Causeí weíve got confidence in the victory of Good over evil.

 

Donít worry about thing.

Because the sun is shinning and the weather is sweet.

Weíll forever love Jah,

And who the cap fit let them wear it.
