Natty Dread

Dread, natty dread now, (natty dread)
Dreadlock congo bongo i. (natty dread)
Natty dreadlock in a babylon: (natty dread)
A dreadlock congo bongo i. (natty dread)
Eh! children get your culture (natty dreadlock)
And don't stay there and gesture, a-ah, (natty dreadlock)
Or the battle will be hotter (natty dreadlock)
And you won't get no supper. (natty dreadlock)

Natty dread, natty dread, now; (natty dread)

Natty dreadlock in a babylon - (natty dread)
Roots natty, roots natty! (natty dread)

Then I walk up the first street, (natty dreadlock)
And then I walk up the second street to see. (natty dreadlock)
Then I trod on through third street, (natty dreadlock)
And then I talk to some dread on fourth street. (natty dreadlock)
Natty dreadlock in a fifth street, (natty dreadlock)
And then I skip one fence to sixth street. (natty dreadlock)
I've got to reach seventh street: (natty dreadlock)
Natty dreadlock bingy bongo I (natty dread)
Natty dread, natty dread, now, (natty dread)
Roots natty congo i. (natty dread)

Oh, natty, natty,
Natty 21,000 miles away from home, yeah!
Oh, natty, natty,
And that's a long way
For natty to be from home.

Don't care what the world seh; (natty dread)
I'n'i couldn't never go astray. (natty dread)
Just like a bright and sunny day: (natty dread)
Oh, we're gonna have things our way. (natty dread)
Natty dread, natty dreadlock, (natty dreadlock)
Dreadlock congo bongo i. (natty dreadlock)
Don't care what the world seh; (natty dreadlock)
