"Roots, Rock, Reggae" as written by and Vincent Ford....
Play I some music: (dis a) reggae music!
Play I some music: (dis a) reggae music!
Roots, rock, reggae: dis a reggae music!
Roots, rock, reggae: dis a reggae music!

Hey, Mister Music, sure sounds good to me!
I can't refuse it: what to be got to be.
Feel like dancing, dance 'cause we are free;
Feel like dancing, come dance with me!

Roots, rock, reggae: dis a reggae music!
Roots, rock, reggae, yeah! Dis a reggae music!
Play I some music: dis a reggae music!
Play I some music: dis a reggae music!

Play I on the R&B - wo-oh! Want all my people to see:
We're bubblin' on the Top 100, just like a mighty dread!
Play I on the R&B; want all my people to see:
We bubblin' on the Top 100, just like a mighty dread!

Roots, rock, reggae: dis a reggae music! Uh-uh!
Roots, rock, reggae, ee-mi duba! Dis a reggae music!
Play I some music: (dis a reggae music!)
Play I some music: (dis a reggae music!)

(Dis a reggae music!)
(Dis a reggae music!)

Play I on the R&B; I want all my people to see: (doo-doo-doo-doo!)
We bubblin' on the Top 100, just like a mighty dread!
(doo-doo-doo-doo!)
Play I some music: (dis a) reggae music!
Play I some music: (dis a) reggae music!
(Dis a reggae music!)
(Dis a reggae music!)

    General CommentThis song is like a tribute to the type of mixture of rock and reggae that bob marley creates in his music.

    General Commentand that was created in the u.k during the late 70's as alluded to in punky reggae party. Reggae on Broaddway has a real heavy guitar as well. I love the piano in the beggining of root rock reggae

    Song MeaningThe part where Bob says "we're bubbling on the Top 100" is his recognition of making the R&B musical charts outside of Jamaica. I think BMW also made some Rock charts, too, with Rastaman Vibration. A lot of people didn't think any band from the Third World would ever make such fame and money, etc.

    Bubbling is the term used for that rhythmic sound reggae keyboard players make.
