Ride Natty Ride Lyrics

Bob Marley & The Wailers

Rub, rub, rubby-doo-day,
Rum-pum-pum a-rum-pum-pum-pum! Oh yeah!

Dready got a job to do,
And he's got to fulfill that mission, yea.
To see his hurt is their greatest ambition, yea.
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-gwaan,
Is to fight against Rastaman.
So they build their world in great confusion,
To force on us the devils 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 yall! 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 fyah 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 its too late,
Fire is burning, man, pull your own weight!
Fyah 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!
