"Inna Di Red" as written by Stephen Marley and Vincent Ford....
I didn't get no sleep at all last night
My shoulders were as heavy as lead
I felt something was just not right
I had to roll a little spliff for my head

So I took a walk inside
Talked to I, I self
Trying to ease these pains of mine
Oh Jah give I strength

And if a egg, natty inna di red
And if a egg, natty inna di red
Rasta inna it, natty inna di red
And if a egg, natty inna di red

Yeah, yah yah
Yah, yah

Eh, now I'm in a irie place
Now I'm in a irie space
Now I man can I ditate
Free ourselves from all that hate
Now I'm in an irie state
Now I man can I ditate
Free ourselves from all that hate
Bless them with Jah love and grace

And if a egg, natty inna di red
And if a egg, natty inna di red
Rasta inna it, (egg), natty inna di red
And if a egg, natty inna di red

Yeah, yeah

Eh, I didn't get no sleep at all first night, no
My shoulders we as heavy as lead
I felt Something was just not right
Had to Roll a little zig for my head
Yeah
So I took a walk inside
Talk to I, I self
Free I from this frame of mind
Oh Jah give I strength

And if a egg, natty inna di red
And if a egg, natty inna di red
C'mon man and if a (egg), natty inna di red
And if a egg, natty inna di red

Yeah, yah yah
Oh, yah, yah,yah, yah

None shall escape Jah judgment
Jah judgments gonna call on you
Red eye, red eye, red eye
Red eye, you're gonna turn to blue
None shall escape Jah judgment
Jah judgments gonna fall on you
Red eye, red eye, red eye
Red eye, you're gonna turn to blue

Yeah, yah, yah
Yah, uah
Yah, yah

Outro (Kids):
So when we call him Rastafari
Watch how weak heart tremble
Heathen nah like Jah name

    My InterpretationIn Jamaican Patois, the yolk of an egg is referred to as red. This popular saying infers you are in the center of things, involved, not a bystander. This is where Rasta stands. Stephen declares Rasta as the center of things, a heavy responsibility where the burden may be eased with the roll of a spliff. From this Irie place, he is able to free himself from the pain of humankindís hate, and pray for Jah's strength, love and grace. Red eye refers to envious people, the copycats (so to speak). Rasta proclaims that none of these shall escape Jah judgment. Rasta stands inna di red.
