"Bam Bam" as written by and Frederick Hibbert....
Ah…

I want you to know that I am the man who
Fight for the right, not for the wrong
Going there, I'm growing there
Helping the weak against the strong

Soon you will find out the man I'm supposed to be

Help this man, don't trouble no man
But if you trouble that man it will bring a bam bam
What a bam bam
Bam bam
See that?
Bam bam
It will bring a bam bam
Can you see that?

Ah… (it will bring a bam bam)
What a bam bam (what a bam bam)
Can you see that? (what a bam bam)
Hear what I say (what a bam bam)
Yeah hey (what a bam bam)
(what a bam bam…)

This man, don't trouble no man
He know you go to nourish man
This man, don't trouble no man
This man is friend and is trying to trouble no man
That's if you trouble this man
It going to bring a bam bam
What a bam bam
Get a bam bam…

    General CommentThis song was originally played at the 1st annual raggae fest of Jamaica, I believe in 1962. The festival was a symbol of expression after it's gained freedom, and raggae or "ska" was truely Jamaica's own. The festival had a contest for singers to write songs for the festival and Toots wrote "Bam Bam"

    The song roots from an expression in Jamaican folklore called "Bam Bam", which translates rather difficultly. It doesn't have a direct translation but it's basically; I won't bring trouble, but if you trouble me I won't hesitate to fight"

    In the end, Toots won the festival and was signed soon after. He is the founder of all raggae, long before Marley, although he is a godfather too...
