Jammin’

Ooh, yeah! All right!
We’re jammin’:
I wanna jam it wid you.
We’re jammin’, jammin’,
And I hope you like jammin’, too.

Ain’t no rules, ain’t no vow, we can do it anyhow:
I’n’I will see you through,
‘Cos everyday we pay the price with a little sacrifice,
Jammin’ till the jam is through.

We’re jammin’ –
To think that jammin’ was a thing of the past;
We’re jammin’,
And I hope this jam is gonna last.

No bullet can stop us now, we neither beg nor we won’t bow;
Neither can be bought nor sold.
We all defend the right; Jah – Jah children must unite:
Your life is worth much more than gold.

We’re jammin’ (jammin’, jammin’, jammin’);
And we’re jammin’ in the name of the Lord;
We’re jammin’ (jammin’, jammin’, jammin’);,
We’re jammin’ right straight from Yah.

Yeh! Holy Mount Zion;
Holy Mount Zion:
Jah sitteth in Mount Zion
And rules all creation.

Yeah, we’re – we’re jammin’ (wotcha-wa),
Wotcha-wa-wa-wa, we’re jammin’ (wotcha-wa),
See, I wanna jam it wid you
We’re jammin’ (jammin’, jammin’, jammin’);
I’m jammed: I hope you’re jammin’, too.

Jam’s about my pride and truth I cannot hide
To keep you satisfied.
True love that now exist is the love I can’t resist,
So jam by my side.

We’re Jammin’ (jammin’, jammin’, jammin’);, yeah-eah-eah!
I wanna jam it wid you.
We’re jammin’, we’re jammin’, we’re jammin’, we’re jammin’,
We’re jammin’, we’re jammin’, we’re jammin’, we’re jammin’;
Hope you like jammin’, too.
We’re jammin’, we’re jammin’ (jammin’);,
We’re jammin’, we’re jammin’ (jammin’);.
I wanna (I wanna jam it wid you) – I wanna –
I wanna jam wid you now.
Jammin’, jammin’ (hope you like jammin’ too).
Eh-eh! I hope you like jammin’, I hope you like jammin’,
‘Cause (I wanna jam it wid you). I wanna … wid you.
I like – I hope you – I hope you like jammin’, too.
I wanna jam it;
I wanna jam it. 

Johnny Was

(Wo-o-o-o! Wo-o-o-o! Wooo!)
Woman hold her head and cry,
‘Cause her son had been shot down in the street and died
From a stray bullet.

Woman hold her head and cry;
Explaining to her was a passerby
Who saw the woman cry (cry)
Wondering how can she work it out,
Now she knows that the wages of sin is death, yeah!
Gift of Jah is life. (life)
She cried: Ah-um, I – I know!
“Johnny was a good man,” I – I know! (never did a thing wrong)
“Johnny was a good, good, good, good, good, good, good, good,
good, good, good man”, (Johnny was good man)
she cried – she crie-ie-ie-ie-ie-ie-ie-ied!

Wo-ooh! Woman hold her head and cry,
As her son had been shot down in the street and died
Just because of the system. (system)

Woman hold her head and cry;
Comforting her I was passing by.
She complained, then she cry:
Oh-ooh-wo-ah, cry (ah-ah), yeah, I know now (ah-ah),
no I know, I know now: (Johnny was a good man)
Said I know, mm-mm-mm-mm-mm. (Never did a thing wrong)
Ah! Ah! (Johnny was a good man)
Can a woman tender care, she cried, (Never did a thing wrong)
Cease towards the child she bear? (Johnny was a good man)
Wo-ho-ho-ooh! Woman cry, woman – (Never did a thing wrong)
She cried, wo-oh! She cried, yeah! (Johnny was a good man)
Can a woman tender care
Cease towards the child she bear? (Never did a thing wrong)
Wo-now, cry! (Johnny was a good man) 

Judge Not

Don’t you look at me so smug
And say I goin’ bad,
Who are you to judge me,
And the life I live?
I know that I’m not perfect
And that I don’t claim to be,
So before you point your fingers,
Make sure your hands are clean.
Judge not,
Before you judge yourself!
Judge not,
If you’re not ready for judgement! Oh-oh-oh!
The road of life is rocky,
And you may stumble too:
So while you talk about me,
Someone else is judging you.

/Saxophone sloo/

Judge not,
Before you judge yourself!
Judge not,
If you’re not ready for 
judgement! 
And I just can’t tell the raindrops
From my teardrops
Falling down my face.
Mm, look at it, yeah!
It isn’t really raindrops.
(I’m still waiting) Teardrops falling down my face.
(I’m still waiting)
(I’m still waiting) I’m still waitin’.
(I’m still waiting) Yes, I will.
I wait in the rain, I wait in the sun.
Please, relieve me from these pains,
Oh pains, just pains.
I love you, yes I do.
But tell me, do you really love me, too? Mm-mm. Mm.

Jump Nyabinghi 

(Hallelu-Jah!)
(Hallelu-Jah!)

Love to see when ya move in the rhythm;
I love to see, when you’re dancin’ from within!
It gives great joy to feel such sweet togetherness,
Everyone doin’ and they’re doing their best
Huh, it remind I of the days in Jericho,
When we troddin’ down Jericho walls:
These are the days when we’ll trod t’rough Babylon, (na-na, na-na)
Gonna trod until Babylon falls.

Sing your song yah!
(Jump, jump, jump,) Nyabinghi! …
(Jump, jump, jump,) Nyabinghi!
(Jump, jump, jump,) Nyabinghi! …
(Jump, jump, jump,) Nyabinghi!

We’ve got the herb (got it!),
We’ve got the herb (got it!),
We’ve got the herb (got it!),
So hand I the suru board,
‘Cause most of all we ain’t got nothing to lose. We-e-e-ey!

(Jump, jump, jump,) Nyabinghi!
(Jump, jump, jump,) Nyabinghi! A little bit loud[er]!
(Jump, jump, jump,) Nyabinghi!
(Jump, jump, jump, Nyabinghi!)

Love to see when ya groove with the riddim,
‘Cause I love to when you’re dancing from within!
It gives great joy to see such sweet togetherness,
‘Cause everyone’s doin’ and they’re doing their best.
‘Cause it remind me of the days in Jericho
When we troddin’ down Jericho walls!
These are the days when we’ll trod through Babylon,
We keep on troddin’ until Babylon falls!

(Jump, jump, jump,) Nyabinghi!
(Jump, jump, jump,) Nyabinghi!
(Jump, jump, jump,) Nyabinghi!
