DONíT SNIFF COKE

NOW THIS ONE IS DEDICATED TO THE PEOPLE ALL OVER

REMEMBER THE WORDS OF YOUR CRUCIAL ENTERTAINER

WHEN I SAY “I DO NOT SNIFF THE COKE I ONLY SMOKE THE SENSIMILLA.”



I DO NOT SNIFF THE COKE I ONLY SMOKE THE SENSIMILLA [rpt 4x]



WITHOUT A DOUBT I AM THE BOSS IN MY CLASS I AM THE TEACHER

IF MUSIC IS THE FRUIT OF LIFE THEN I WILL BE A REAPER

IF M.C. BUSINESS WAS A SCHOOL THEN I WOULD BE HEAD MASTER

IF A CAR I’D BE THE DRIVER, IF A BIKE I’D BE THE RIDER

IF M.C. BUSINESS WAS A CHURCH PATO WOULD BE THE VICAR

THEN INSTEAD OF CALLING ME M.C. YOU ALL WOULD CALL ME PREACHER

BUT FUN AND JOKE ASIDE I WANT TO GET SERIOUS IN THIS MATTER

AND DEDICATE THIS STYLE TO EACH AND EVERY COCAINE DEALER.



CHORUS:



IN FEBRUARY 1985 PATO BECAME A WINNER

BECAUSE I DID THAT TUNE CALLED ‘ALLO TOSH GOTTA TOSHIBA (repeat )

IT SHOOTED UP THE CHARTS AND NEARLY GAVE MY MUM HEART FAILURE

SHE LOOKED AT ME AND SAID SON ME GLAD ME GROW YOU PROPER

A SON LIKE YOU WOULD BE THE PRIDE AND JOY OF ANY MOTHER

NO MAKE THE FAME GET TO YOUR HEAD JUST THINK ABOUT YOUR FUTURE

THOSE WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT JUST MADE ME PUSH ON FURTHER

TO BREAK DOWN ANY WALLS AND ALSO BREAK THROUGH ANY BARRIER

I GOT A LOT OF GUIDANCE FROM G.T. WHO IS MY MANAGER

ASSISTANCE FROM DON CHRISTIE, FASHION HELPED ME CROSS THE BORDER

I ALSO GOT A LOT OF AID FROM GOOD GOOD SENSIMILLA

THAT’S WHY I DO NOT SNORT THE COKE I ONLY BURN THE GANJA



CHORUS:(rpt 4x)



ONE DAY I HAD TO CATCH A TRAIN FROM BIRMINGHAM TO LONDON

HALF WAY ON MY JOURNEY WAS APPROACHED BY THIS WHITE RUFFIAN

WITH GREASY HAIR AND SCRUFFY JEANS HE LOOKED JUST LIKE A VILLAIN

HE SAT DOWN OPPOSITE ME WITH A TENNANTS [LAGER] IN HIS RIGHT HAND

BUT I DON’T JUDGE APPEARANCE I JUST CHECK THE WAY YOU GALONG

SO I INTRODUCED MYSELF TO HIM AS MR PATO BANTON

NICE TO MEET YA, MY NAME’S ROADIE AND I WORK WITH P.A. HIRE

I’VE HEARD YOUR NAME SOME PLACE BEFORE BUT I JUST CAN’T REMEMBER

BUT ANYWAY I’M VERY VERY VERY GLAD TO MEET YA

AND I’VE GOT SOME DOPE IT’S FIRST CLASS COKE

YOU CAN HAVE THIS FOR A FIVER

I LOOKED DOWN ON THE TABLE AND SAW A PIECE OF SILVER PAPER

INSIDE THIS SILVER PAPER WAS SOME POWDER LOOKED LIKE FLOUR

ME ASK HIM WHAT IT DO FOR YOU IT GIVE YOU STRENGTH AND POWER

NOW EVERYONE I WANT YOU TO HEAR THE WAY THAT ROADIE ANSWERED

WELL MR PATO THE SENSATION IS FINE

IT MAKES ME SEE GREEN MEN AND THEN I GO TO CLOUD NINE

ALL MY WORRIES AND PROBLEMS ARE LEFT MILES BEHIND

SO NO MATTER WHERE I AM I HAVE A BRILLIANT TIME

IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE ME HOLD ON AND I’LL FIX YOU A LINE

JUST TAKE ONE SNIFF OF THIS AND YOU’LL BE OUT OF YOUR MIND



BUT I TOOK THE COKE AND THREW IT RIGHT OUTSIDE THE CARRIAGE WINDOW

BEFORE HE COULD SAY A WORD I QUICKLY BUILT UP A FIVE-SHEETER

INTO MY POCKET FOR MY SENSI AND MY LIGHTER

I LIT IT WITH A FLASH AND THEN TO ROADIE PASSED IT OVER

I COULD SEE THAT HE WAS LOVING IT BECAUSE OF HIS EXPRESSION

ME TELL HIM THIS IS SENSI THE HEALING OF THE NATION

IN SOME PLACE DOCTORS USE IT FOR HERBAL MEDICATION

RONALD REAGAN SMOKE IT JUST BEFORE HIM GO PON TELEVISION

AFTER MARGRET THATCHER VISIT HIM SHE BRING SOME BACK TO ENGLAND

THEN DISTRIBUTES IT EQUALLY THROUGHOUT THE HOUSE COMMONS

BUT FUN AND JOKE ASIDE IT GIVES ME DEEP DEEP MEDITATION

IT FILLS MY HEART WITH NICENESS AND I GET NUFF INSPIRATION

YOU COULD BE ANY COLOUR ANY CREED OR ANY NATION

AFTER SMOKING SENSIMILLA I KNOW YOU’LL FIND A REASON WHY



I DO NOT SNIFF COKE I ONLY SMOKE SENSIMILLA
