Growing To Be Rastaman

Dread oh natty dread
This person in a I and I in my mind
Words from the records of the Rastafarian
Seeing myself one day

Growing to be Rastaman
Growing to be Rastaman
Growing to be Rastaman
Growing to be Rastaman

See so much crisis, on many faces
All the minorities and all the changes
Increasing violence every day
What can I do then just sing and pray

Well some old feel that them are taken away
The things that they have built after the war
And a prostitute told me once to be so crazy
Being an immigrant with empty pockets after twenty years

But I am dread oh natty dread
This person in a I and I in my mind
Words from the records of the Rastafarian
I see myself one day

Growing to be Rastaman
Growing to be Rastaman
Growing to be Rastaman
Growing to be Rastaman

To know the queen and God and the freedom party
For employment, wellfare and prosperity
The police involved with drugdeals in the streets
And I and I this Rastaman is always a planting the seeds

It’s alright now, cause I am dread oh natty dread
Cause I am dread oh natty dread
Dread oh natty dread
Dread oh natty dread

-Lindau Kar 1994
