Roots

Bob Marley & The Wailers

Roots natty roots
Dread binghi dread
I and I are the roots
Some are the dry wood

Fe catch up the fire
Whoa, look at that
They need some dry wood
To cook up the raw food
Whoa, look at that

I got to survive inna dis man maniac downpression
Got to survive in iration, yeah
Roots natty roots
Dread binghi dread
Remember that I and I are the roots
Some are wolf inna sheep's clothing
Whoa, look at that
Many are called, but only a few are chosen
Whoa, look at that
Nothing that dividers can do
Can't seperate us from our father
Whoa, look at that
You see, blood is thicker than water
Whoa, look at that

Got to survive inna disyah ghetto, yeah
Roots natty roots
Dread binghi dread
Remember that I and I are the roots
Roots natty roots
Dread binghi dread
Whoa, I and I are the roots
Some are leaves, while some are branches
But remember I and I are the roots
Some are dry wood
Fe catch up the fire
Whoa, look at that

Got to survive inna dis man maniac downpression
Got to survive in iration
Roots natty roots
Dread binghi dread
Hey, I and I are the roots
Ooh we, roots natty roots
Dread binghi dread
Oh yeah, I and I are the roots
