NUFF KIND OF DREAD



Nuff Kind Of
Dread



(Pato Banton)



 



Well whether Tom, whether Dick, whether Harry or Fred



Remember what Pato Banton said



Anywhere you go there is nuff kind of dread



 



Nuff kind of dread inna this here city gwarn!



Nuff kind of dread inna this ya city yeah



Nuff kind of dread inna this here city gwarn!



Nuff kind of dread inna this ya city



 



Well you know my name is P.P.P.P. Pato Banton



Born a South London but now me rest in Birmingham



As an entertainer me have to tour the nation



And anywhere me go me sight nuff Rastaman



Some a wear beaver, some a wear buckers, some of them in a
tam



Some walking street, some riding bike, some driving Bad Man
Wagon (BMW)



Some of them a gwarn like super notch, some a dem a gwarn
like Don



Some a them a carry themselves like say they don’t give a
damn



But anywhere me go and sight the situation



Me Just pick up the mic and start sing this song



 



Chorus



 



Well first you have the dread them that stay like me!



We pants reach we shoes and not by we knee



We wear clean socks we foot don’t cheesy



Some dread wear them socks till them turn crusty



Vosene Shampoo to wash me notty (dread)



And when me done me ask me queen to dry it for me



One thing that I hate and can’t stand to see



Is when two dread a fight over stupidity



Rastaman fe unite inna harmony



Cause unity is strength and strength is what we need



 



Chorus



 



Certain dreadlocks a gwarn like them well primitive



No want to come to terms with the times we a live



Always a take but never want to give



Rejected by their parents and relatives



They don’t thing positive and find somewhere to live



Just a rest a man yard and a eat out the fridge



Is them kind a man Pato don’t walk with



Cause me don’t want GT to call me a div (stupid)



 



Chorus



 



Well now we have the dread dem weh Big ‘Bout Yah



Them dress pretty slick and a drive big car



When you see them you just know that their a hustler



If them no a have a gal a street then them a push ganja



If not sensi, coke or acid or some formula



Some of them a carry gun like a real gansta



They reveal their true within-ness when they drink liquor



They think it’s stupid for a dread to go to Africa



“When you can hustle inna England and be Big ‘Bout Yah?”



 



Nuff kind of dread inna this here city gwarn!



Nuff kind of dread inna this ya city yeah



Nuff kind of dread inna this here city gwarn!



Nuff kind of dread inna this ya city …… easy man!
