REAL RASTAMAN

(Lyrics)

BROTHER, DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOU’RE GOING?
LIES CAN BE DECEIVING IF YOU FOLLOW THEM
DON’T BELIEVE A WORD OF WHAT THE TELEVISION SAID
SISTER, PUT AWAY YOUR MAKE UP,
YOU DON’T NEED TO LOOK MORE BEAUTIFUL
THE LIGHT YOU CARRY INSIDE IS SUCH A POWERFUL

IT’S NOT THE DREADLOCKS ON TOP OF YOUR HEAD BUT IT’S THE LOVE IN YOUR HEART
THAT MAKES YOU BE A RASTAMAN, READY TO BE A BETTER MAN TODAY

FATHER, THANKS FOR YOUR ADVICES,
THE DAY THAT I DECIDED THAT MUSIC WILL BE MY LIFE
EVEN IF IT TAKES A LOT OF SACRIFICES
MOTHER, YOU’VE BEEN WORKING HARDER,
TO LET ME BE THE LUCKY MAN I AM TODAY
DON’T CARE OF WHAT THE OTHER PEOPLE SAY

IT’S NOT THE DREADLOCKS ON TOP OF YOUR HEAD, BUT IT’S THE LOVE IN YOUR HEART
THAT MAKES YOU BE A RASTAMAN, READY TO BE A BETTER MAN TODAY

THEY KILLED JOHN LENNON FOR WHAT HE SAID:
“IMAGINE ALL THE PEOPLE LIVING LIFE IN PEACE”
IMAGINE THERE’S NO COUNTRY TO BE FIGHTING FOR,
IMAGINE NO POSSESSIONS TO CRAVE FOR
LOOK AT BOB MARLEY AND WHAT HE SAID,
ONE LOVE ONE HEART DON’T WANNA WAIT INVAIN
THE SUN IS SHINING NO WOMAN NO CRY,
SO GET UP AND STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS

IT’S NOT THE DREADLOCKS ON TOP OF YOUR HEAD, BUT IT’S THE LOVE IN YOUR HEART
THAT MAKES YOU BE A RASTAMAN, READY TO BE A BETTER MAN TODAY
