(Chorus)
Roots sound, yeh it sound so good, sound so nice
Roots sound, yeh it sound so good, sound so nice
Roots sound, yeh it sound so good, sound so nice
Roots sound, yeh it sound so good, sound so nice

(Verse 1)
Wi love di sound a di bass
And di drum when ti a knock
No gi wi rap, no gi wi pop
No gi wi that
Foreigner fly inn si wi thing a shot
Dem a try fi copy that
But dem yah roots no sell a shop

Yea same roots weh wi born an raise on
A di same roots from creation
And even though yuh get no love on the radio station
A di roots still a ram up di station

Tell di press an di media
A di roots meck wi heal yah
So a roots fi mi breakfast
Roots fi mi lunch and a roots fi mi dinner
Tell dem a love wi a push, a no drugs wi a push
And a roots a di dealer
Nuff a dem a try fi copy
Dem cyaa catch dem yah speed yah

Until wi go to di grave wi naw stop
And wi naw pay nothing fi di Reaggae roots rack
A no political act, a no di coke or di crack
A di roots put Jamaica pon top

(Repeat Chorus)

(Verse 2)
Reminiscing when mi pops use to take to to Jah love
And 12 drive dances, I use to glances pocadots shirt cause di right dances
Wi use to dela move an water pomp it to di Brigidare Jerries
And di sister nancies
When mi talk bout roots mi talk bout cool running’s bobsled
Mi a talk bout natty dread wid a big head
Alon’s bled
Big up third world inna circle wid di people bans dem
All a who a whole dem roots meck mi si di hands dem

Hey roots man a scank, scanking off dem knee cap
Challis a bubble like fever grass weh inna tea pot
Genius a meck di beat drop
Roots man wi have di streets lock
Mi sit down pon top a di riddim just like a lizard pon a tree top
Link Marie fi wash an twist mi lox
And gi it a neat plat
Mi love di music, wi roots, mi culture naw go cheat that
wi no talarate no pagan bookie seh fi underfeat that
Tell dem again weh di crem, dela crem
Dem know wi a di cream crop

(Repeat Chorus)
