walking down babylon lane
trying to live my life in peace
two young men call me not their brother
they try to make I feel ashamed

but I luv I jah yeah, he tell me not to be that way
I luv I jah yeah, I gotta keep my P.M.A.

my lovely sister, judge me by my clothes, yeah
only to learn her mistake, not everyone's alike
we're not all uptight
no fuss no fight
cool that way
cool that way


I luv I jah.

    General CommentJah isnt pot. As dan2313 said it is the rasta name for god. "I Jah" is just like saying "my god". rastas aren't fans of using possesive pronouns and so use I instead of me, my. its to symbolise equality or soemthing or another I think....

    General CommentJah comes from the bible actually.
    we've all heard the word "Hallelujah!"
    well that means praise God in old texts (hebrew perhaps, idk),
    God being Jah.

    Jah, Yahweh, Jehovah, all being GOD in one way or another.
    Jah is also another version of the name Jehovah, or God.

    General Commentunity4peace is WAY OFF!
    Jah means "God" its mentioned in the Bible
    I love I Jah is Rasta Patois for saying "I love my God"
    Rasta are infamous for saying I instead "my"

    This song is about when "they"(Bad Brains) first became Rasta's (they lost abit of there fan base due to this) They say "gotta keep that P.M.A. ("Positive Mental Attitude"-"Think and Grow Rich") no matter what people say, or think about us. we still got that "P.M.A".
