Jimmy Cliff - Roots Radical

(Roots radical)
(Roots radical)

I'm a radical (roots radical)
I'm a true born Jamaican
Yes, I'm a radical (roots radical)
And I'm miles away from home

I'm a radical (roots radical)
I'm a true born Jamaican
Yes, I'm a radical (roots radical)
And I'm miles away from home

They won't see me 'round the corner
They can't catch me on the straight
They won't see me 'round the corner
They can't catch me on the straight

'Cause I'm a radical (roots radical)
'Cause I'm a true born Jamaican
Yes, I'm a radical (roots radical)
And I'm miles away from home

The Babylon system get I down
I'll own the well when they lock I in a cell
The Babylon system get us down
Oh what the hell when the rice won't swell

I'm a radical, radical (roots radical)
And I'm a royal African man
I'm a radical (roots radical)
And I'm miles away from home

(Roots radical)
(Roots radical)
(Roots radical)
(Roots radical)

Ain't no stops, no traps, no barriers
Can't stop me on my way
And if they try to hurt me
I'll just up and fly away

'Cause I'm a radical (roots radical)
'Cause I'm a true born Jamaican
Yes, I'm a radical (roots radical)
And I'm miles away from home

The Babylon system teach us wrong
Wanting us all to sing their song
The Babylon system teach us wrong
Wanting us all to fool around

But I'm a radical, radical (roots radical)
'Cause I'm a royal African man
I'm a radical (roots radical)
And I'm miles away from home

(Roots radical)
(Roots radical)
(Miles away from home..)

(Roots radical)
(Roots radical)
(Miles away from home..)

(Roots radical)
(Roots radical)
(Miles away from home..)

I'm a radical (roots radical)
Natural African man
A radical, a radical (roots radical)
And I'm miles away from home

'Cause I'm a radical
(Roots radical)
(Miles away from home..)

I'm a radical (roots radical)
I'm a true born Jamaican
Yes, I'm a radical (roots radical)
And I'm miles away from home

(Roots radical)
