Broadjam Member Reviews

Nice catchy and inviting groove. Heart felt and natural lyrics. Really like the hook. Certainly the best part of the song. Interesting idea to bring the flute sounds in. That component could be developed more. The general vibe and vibe sticks in my head.

Lyrics

RASTA LULLABY (5:00)

Climb into bed, rest your head
Remember What your momma
Your poppa said
Sleep little one do not cry
Listen, listen to this lullaby
sleep, sleep...

I'll tell you once now
I'll tell you twice more too
It's been a green season all year long

Chorus:
I'm a Rasta Man, Oh baby
Are you a Rasta woman too?
Are you, are you, are you?

There's a reason, oh yeah
The things we do
There's a reason for all we say ay

Chorus: I'm a...

I've lived and loved a thousand lives
Never found a girl to call my wife
No man or woman is an island
And everyone needs love sweet love
yeah love...
