"Natty Dread" as written by and Bob Marley....
Dread, Natty Dread now (Natty Dread)
Dreadlock Congo Bongo I (Natty Dread)
Natty Dreadlock in a Babylon (Natty Dread)
A dreadlock Congo Bongo I (Natty Dread)
Eh! Children get your culture (Natty Dreadlock)
And don't stay there and gesture, a-ah (Natty Dreadlock)
Or the battle will be hotter (Natty Dreadlock)
And you won't get no supper (Natty Dreadlock)

Natty Dread, Natty Dread, now (Natty Dread)
A dreadlock Congo Bongo I (Natty Dread)
Natty Dreadlock in a Babylon (Natty Dread)
Roots Natty, Roots Natty! (Natty Dread)

Then I walk up the first street (Natty Dreadlock)
And then I walk up the second street to see (Natty Dreadlock)
Then I trod on through third street (Natty Dreadlock)
And then I talk to some Dread on fourth street (Natty Dreadlock)
Natty Dreadlock in a fifth street (Natty Dreadlock)
And then I skip one fence to sixth street (Natty Dreadlock)
I've got to reach seventh street (Natty Dreadlock)
Natty Dreadlock Bingy Bongo I (Natty Dread)
Natty dread, Natty Dread, now (Natty Dread)
Roots Natty Congo I (Natty Dread)

Oh, Natty, Natty
Natty twenty one thousand miles away from home, yeah!
Oh, Natty, Natty
And that's a long way
For Natty to be from home

Don't care what the world seh (Natty Dread)
I'n'I couldn't never go astray (Natty Dread)
Just like a bright and sunny day (Natty Dread)
Oh, we're gonna have things our way (Natty Dread)
Natty Dread, Natty Dreadlock (Natty Dreadlock)
Dreadlock Congo Bongo I (Natty Dreadlock)
Don't care what the world seh (Natty Dreadlock)
I'n'I gonna have things our way (Natty Dreadlock)
If a egg Natty in a the red (Natty Dreadlock)
If a egg Natty in a the red (Natty Dreadlock)
Natty Dread, Natty Dreadlock
