See me in me heels and ting
Dem check sey we hip and ting
True them no know and ting

Nah pop no style, a strictly roots

See me pon the road I hear you call out to me
True you see mi inna pants and ting
See mi in a 'alter back
Sey mi gi' you heart attack
Gimme likkle bass, make me wine up me waist
Uptown Top Ranking

See mi in mi Benz and ting
Drivin' through Constant Spring

But a true dem no know and ting
Dem no know sey we top ranking
Uptown Top Ranking

Shoulda see me and the ranking dread
Check how we jamming and ting
Love is all I bring inna me khaki suit and ting
Nah pop no style, a strictly roots

    TranslationSee me in my heels and things (or all, that, stuff, etc...)
    They look (and) say we're hip and all
    True, they don't know and all
    We've got them all excited and all
    No, pop isn't cool, I'm strictly into reggae
    No, pop isn't cool, I'm strictly into reggae

    You see me on the road, I hear you call out to me
    True, you see me wearing pants and all
    See me in a halter top
    You say I give you a heart attack
    Play me a little base guitar, make me do a slow, sexy twist dance
    Uptown Top Ranking (Looking really good/top class)

    See me in my Mercedes Benz and all
    Driving through the Constant Spring neighborhood of Kingston. Jamaica
    Those who check me out say I came from Cosmopolitan magazine's spring fashion pages
    But true, they don't know and all
    Those who don't know say we're top class
    Uptown Top Ranking (Looking really good)

    You should see me and the most popular guy
    Check how we're dancing (getting down) and all
    Love is all I bring, in my khaki-colored leisure suit and all (a la Bob Marley)
    No, pop isn't cool, I'm strictly into reggae
    No, pop isn't cool, I'm strictly into reggae

    Watch how we dance so energetically
    In our khaki suits and all
    Love is all I bring, in my khaki suit and all
    No, pop isn't cool, I'm strictly into reggae
    No, pop isn't cool, I'm strictly into reggae

    Love in your heart screams out for me
    When you see me in pants and all
    See me in a halter top
    You say I give you a heart attack
    Play me a little base guitar, make me do a slow, sexy twist dance
    Uptown Top Ranking (Looking really good)

    You see me on the road, I hear you call out to me
    True, you see me in my pants and all
    See me in a halter top
    You say I give you a heart attack
    Play me a little base guitar, make me do a slow, sexy twist dance
    Play me a little base guitar, make me do a slow, sexy twist dance
    Love is all I bring, in my khaki suit and all
    Pop isn't cool, I'm strictly into reggae
    Pop isn't cool, I'm strictly into reggae

    You should see me and the most popular guy
    Check how we're dancing (getting down) and all
    Love is all I bring, in my khaki-colored suit and all
    No, pop isn't cool, I'm strictly into reggae
    No, pop isn't cool, I'm strictly into reggae
