Yellowman

Yellowman´╗┐


Me shake de han of Yellowman

As him retreat from de JamHouse bandstand

Him young darta in tow

Threntenin him ailing rainbow 

Strong wid muscle tu start and finish a show

De lyrics tu songs and interludes everybody already know

Him jump up and darnce like a twenty-year-ole

Sweat like him got feva but neva act likka seh him ole

Him lif up de ordinary life of de crowd

An carse dem fe get damn loud

Ole an young of every race

Wid a look of pleasure deh pan dem face 

Even wen him seh docta give him tree week fe live

Him prove dem wrong eena wha him deh-sing

Light likka ballerina 

Him still talawa arn-ya

Him shudda dead in 1982

But him still ha much tu do

Yellowman de legend

Is aal yu could eva imagine
