Pablo Moses - Be Not A Dread

Be not a Dread, neither a baldhead
Just be a Ras with your pretty curly locks
Because the name "Dread" portrays viciousness
While the name "Ras" portrays righteousness

It's true, it's true
You know it's true, so true now

Therefore not curse at what I might say
Neither cut your locks and go astray
For they are Ras in Africa
A place called Ethiopia, yeh-hah
Where bredrens grow their curly locks
To show the world that they are Ras now

It's true, it's true
You know it's true, so true now

So be not a Dread, neither a baldhead
Just be a Ras with your pretty curly locks
Because the name "Dread" portrays viciousness
While the name "Ras" portrays righteousness

It's true, it's true
You know it's true, so true now

Ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya
Mmmm-mmmmm-mmmmm-mmmmm

(..)

Be not a Dread, neither a baldhead
Just be a Ras with your pretty curly locks
Because the name "Dread" portrays viciousness
While the name "Ras" portrays righteousness

It's true, it's true
You know it's true, so true now

Now we are all children from Africa
Living here in Jamaica
Forced into exploitation and sufferation
By the hands of the Babylonians
So in order to keep our culture
We got to love one another now

It's true, it's true
You know it's true, so true now

So be not a Dread, neither a baldhead
Just be a Ras with your pretty curly locks
Because the name "Dread" portrays viciousness
While the name "Ras" portrays righteousness

It's true, it's true
You know it's true, so true now

Ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya
Mmmm-mmmmm, mmmmm-mmmmm

Be not a Dread, be not a Dread..
