Strong Roots (Reggae Song)

STRONG ROOTS (REGGAE)

We used to spend time wi mudder an’ a fadder

Now we chattin’ shite, time wastin’ on a Twitter

We used to work hard in school crammin’ wi’ a numbers

Now we makin’ teary eye cryins on a Tumblr

Television and cinema are our culchah

But now we all night chattin’ bout Big Brother

No more Fritz Lang, Murnau ah Ingmar Bergman

Joey Essex an Kardashian we be learnin’

If you don’t have strong roots then brother you a lettuce

Tossed about by every wind an’ rumor

If you got strong roots then you are a mustard

Never trick ah by subtle serpent bastard!

Ah me roots, Ah me roots, Ah me roots

Me Johnny nevvah be pull up by a shoots

Dare tah get loss inna city?

Johnny nevvah get shitty,

Him nah nevvah get no Johnny drughead

Him no smackhead!

If you don’t have strong roots then brother you a lettuce

Tossed about by every wind an’ rumor

If you got strong roots then you are a mustard

Never trick ah by subtle serpent bastard!

***

There may be some gentle  humor in this song; but there is a serious point behind it.

No matter what your ethnicity, religion or class…

Never forget where you came from!
