Ride Natty Ride Lyrics – Bob Marley

Ride Natty Ride Lyrics

Rub rub rubby-doo-day;
Rum-pum-pum a-rum-pum-pum-pum!
Dready got a job to do
And he’s got to fulfill that mission
To see his hurt is their greatest ambition yeah!
But-a we will survive in this world of competition
‘Cause no matter what they do
Natty keep on comin’through
And no matter what they say-ay-ay-ay
Natty de deh every day. Yeah!
Natty Dread rides again
Through the mystics of tomorrow
Natty Dread rides again:
Have no fear have no sorrow yeah!

All and all you see a-gwan
Is to fight against Rastaman.
So they build their world in great confusion
To force on us the devil’s illusion.
But the stone that the builder refuse
Shall be the head cornerstone
And no matter what game they play
Eh we got something they could never take away;
We got something they could never take away:

And it’s the fire (fire) it’s the fire (fire)
That’s burning down everything:
Feel that fire (fire) the fire (fire);
Only the birds have their wings yeah!
No time to be deceived.
Oh brothers you should know and not believe:
Jah say this judgement – it could never be with water
No water could put out this fire (fire):
This fire (fire) this fire (fire)
This fire (fire) a yaga y’all! Ride Natty ride!
Go deh Dready go deh
‘Cause now the fire is out of control
Panic in the city wicked weeping for their gold!
Everywhere this fiyah is burning
Destroying and melting their gold
Destroying and waisting their souls.

Go ride Natty ride!
Go deh Dready! Go deh!

Tell you what: now the people gather on the beach
And the leader try to make a speech
But the Dreadies understandin’ that it’s too late:
Fire is burning;
Man pull your own weight!
Fiyah is burning;
Man pull your own weight!
Natty Dread rides again (Natty Dread rides again);
And me say Go deh Dready! Go deh! (go deh go deh)
Oh ride Natty ride! (Dread rides again)
And go deh Dready! (Go deh go deh)
Ridin’ through the storm
Riding through the calm (go deh go deh).
Oh ride Natty ride!
Go deh Dready go deh!
Ride Natty ride!
Go deh Dready do deh! /fadeout/

[*Sleeve notes:
We riding thru the thick;
We riding thru the thin;
Ride Natty ride Natty.]
