MUSICAL INTERLUDE:

"We're jammin':

I wanna jam it with you.

We're jammin', jammin', jammin'

And I hope you like jammin', too.

Ain't no rules, ain't no vow, we can do it anyhow:

and I will see you through,

'Cause everyday we pay the price with a little sacrifice,

Jammin' till the jam is through.

We're jammin'

To think that jammin' was a thing of the past;

We're jammin',

And I hope this jam is gonna last.

No bullet can stop us now, we neither beg nor we won't bow;

Neither can be bought nor sold.

We all defend the right; Jah - Jah children must unite:

Your life is worth much more than gold.

We're jammin' (jammin', jammin', jammin')

And we're jammin' in the name of the Lord;

We're jammin' (jammin', jammin', jammin'),

We're jammin' right straight from Jah."

Bob Marley is one of the best things that ever happened to the world. My favorite song by him is "Them belly full (but we hungry)". If he were alive right now, he would be doing great things. It's great that we have Ziggy!!

Well, this one is from Peter Tosh... but I guess it´s very close to Marley´s beliefs...

I thought Lee 'Scratch' Perry was the original king of reggae, and Bob Marley was the person responsible for bringing it off the island? If anybody is interested, you must see 'The Harder They Come' for the story.
