"Rastaman Live Up" as written by Bob Marley and Lee Perry....
Rastaman, live up!
Bongoman, don't give up!
Congoman, live up, yeah!
Binghi-man don't give up!
Keep your culture,
Don't be afraid of the vulture!
Grow your dreadlock,
Don't be afraid of the wolf-pack!

Rastaman, live up!
Binghi-man, don't give up!
Congoman, live up, yeah!
Bongoman, don't give up!

David slew goliath with a sling and a stone;
Samson slew the philistines with a donkey jawbone:
Iyaman, live up!
Rastaman, don't give up!
Binghi-man, live up!
Congoman, don't give up!

Trodding through creation in a irie meditation;
Seen many visions in-a this yah armagiddyon:
Rastaman, live up!
Congoman, don't give up!
Rastaman, live up, yeah!
Natty dread, no give up!

Saw it in the beginning, so shall it be in this iwa;
And they fallen in confusion, well-a just a step from babel tower
Rastaman live up!
Congoman, no give up!
Rastaman live up, yeah!
Congoman, no give up!
Grow your dreadlocks,
Don't be afraid of the wolf-pack!
A-tell you, one man a-walkin',
And a billion man a-sparkin'.

Rastaman, live up!
Binghi-man, don't give up!
Don't give up, don't give up, don't give up!

    General CommentThis song is obviously about holding onto your culture and not conforming to "babylon's" culture. Keep ya dreads, praise jah, and live for what you believe in! The wolfpack (or organized, babylon society) may tell you to change, but stay true to who you are.
