KingCast jams of the week: Three reggae blasters!

I think the Culture and Capleton tracks are originals whereas My Time is a Bob Andy cover, but I think Barrington's voice really flushes out the song and imparts an urgent sense of freedom to the listener. In any event, crucial dub about the World in which we livin'.... in this here time. It's because..... of the Babylon... and the situation......

MY TIME

my resistance is getting weaker
i cant stand the pressure
i cant get any weaker
ive got to find some other treature

i need nothing to be a man
because i was born a man
and i deserve the rights to live
like any other man

my mind in such a state
sometimes it makes me sick
sometimes i try to ate
but i just dont know the trick

i need nothing to be a man
because i was born a man
and i deserve the rights to live
like any other man

experience costs you wisdom
the tought i got some let
im getting out for certain
my soul can stand the test

i need nothing to be a man
because i was born a man
and i deserve the rights to live
like any other man

my resistance is getting weaker

Why am I a Rastaman

I´ve being questioned to meet early on the street

- many want to know the reason why?
I am a rastaman

many people see I many people ask I?
why am I a rastaman
many people see I many people ask?
why am I a rastaman

cause, it´s because of the babyloon and the siituation?
it´s because of the babyloon and the siituation

when I was a boy about eight years old
there was a surtain rastaman
and he love all the children
and he treated us like a man
even the little children than no one cared
he called up on everyone
and he gave us food and treated everyone
with a special love

Chorus:
many people see I, many people ask I?
why am I a rastaman
(but he tought I the LOVE to give to everyone)

many people see I many people ask I?
why am I a rastaman
(there is no better way to express my love, to each and everyone)

one satuarday morning
a special thing happend to this man
he moved out of babyloon
HIM take away the rastaman
to the root of HIM herb and the meat of HIM fruit
and throw it in a van
(and staight up brother for ten years)
I never see the rastaman
they took him to general penetentry and
send him back as a valid man
but GOD could not change him his mind
cause in that prison was just his body, man, oh

Chorus:
many people see I, many people ask I?
why am I a rastaman
(no matter how hard the battle be - I still have JAH in my hand)

many people see I many people ask I?
why am I a rastaman
(how sweet the name of JAH JAH song - to every rightous rastaman)

am the same old rastaman
taught you paushing and ting
would come out and have cyculation
and we would use a true bird, man
now I have seen telling me u
got no dark and it got no use, man
donkey, horses and cross keeper
trooding on I being am a man

Chorus:
everyone see, I everyone ask I?
why am I a rastaman
(am here to prove and testify- about our prophecy)

everyone who see I , everyone ask I?
why am I a rastaman
(they baptaised marcus garvey and christ - they was a rastaman)

everyone see I, everyone ask I?
why am I a rastaman
(I vote and fight for another right and it can´t be no other wise man)

everyone see I, everyone ask I?
why am I a rastaman
(I love my brothers and I sisters and I can not give up a tall man)

Brother Brown, brother Duke, brother John, brothers stand up Man
I use to hear them beat the drums and sing
there in the forest land

many people see I many people ask I?
why am I a rastaman
I love the beat of the nayabing that call the creation

many people see I, many people ask I?
why am I a rastaman
(the truth is my friend there is no other rightous man..... )
