This is raggamuffin from di ghetto yutes camp
Anyway mi go mi seh mi must leff mi stamp
Marijuana weh mi smoke dem seh too ignorant
Just some odda day some puff a whole mek fi one
Then mi bredda Juju and mi idren name Don
Bounce and listen to Gong when mashin' up di traffic jam
Police pull mi ova talkin bout him smell bud
From mi look inna him face and know this bwoy have a plan
Juju touch mi pon my shoulda seh di bwoy a demon
First ting him waan to know is where dat smell is comin' from
Are you smokin' marijuana and I said yes I am
True him seh some man trance seh it cost a couple grand
Him seh mek mi see di license and registration
And where are yuh headed what's yuh occupation
Dun know seh raggamuffin nah go answer question
As is says on the paper read di information
From mi nah go tek nuh switch or interrogation
So book mi if yuh book mi carry dung a station
Mek mi show dem how we did it inna style and pattern

Pom, rom pa ba dom ba dom ba ba dom
Babba dom ba dabba dom ba dom ba ba dom
Pom, rom pa ba dom ba dom ba ba dom
Babba dom ba dabba dom ba dom ba ba dom

I'm di judge, di lawyer Juve I'm my own bails man
And if yuh check it out dat would be my station
Mi seh sekkle Juju royal for yah run England
And when mi plane land yuh nah go through nuh customs
This is raggamuffin inna different pattern
Mi nuh go inna nuh session unless it conk and ram
And from yuh see we face and wanna ask a question
And anywhere we go we haffi ra pa pom, pom

Pom, rom pa ba dom ba dom ba ba dom
Babba dom ba dabba dom ba dom ba ba dom
Pom, rom pa ba dom ba dom ba ba dom
Babba dom ba dabba dom ba dom ba ba dom

Well if a ganja dem a look fah dem know where to find us
Well we a nuh criminal seh rasta ever righteous
Some bwoy a scope out di ride a we drive and puff
And him jealous a we seh shine and buff
And him jealous a we seh shine and buff
Well from him look inna di car and how di interior plush

And look upon di rims how dem full out and flush
And scope out we jewels him a wonda how much
And him jealous well then prize caan touch (Why)
And him jealous well then prize caan touch (Ragga now!)
Then mi seh royal have a new tune fi rise and buss
And there extra large size muffin dem a light up
A bwoy dig dung di car until him find some stuff
And him jealous a we so rank and nuff (Lawd)
And him jealous a we so rank and nuff
Hin exact cau a few stripes deh pon him shoulda
Cau him too par wid we we deh when Demus show love
Give dem couple C.D. some promo photos
Now him jealous cau everybody knows us
Now him jealous cau everybody shows love
Yo some feel di wey yuh pass and dem a smile and blush
And true dem see some man a star dem could a have a light crush
Now him jealous now even twice as much (Hear dat)
Now di bwoy jealous now even twice as much (Lawd)
It's just a minor set backa who yuh waan call up
Every month then di super get a ting fold up

Seh any kind a cuff it haffi diamond cuff
Go tell dem natty dreadlocks no wear handcuff
Seh easy papa muffin yuh ruffa than ruff
And sekkle Juju Royal yuh tuffa than tuff
And tell dem seh natty dreadlocks nah wear handcuffs
Always stick togetha even when time tuff

Pom, rom pa ba dom ba dom ba ba dom
Babba dom ba dabba dom ba dom ba ba dom
Pom, rom pa ba dom ba dom ba ba dom
Babba dom ba dabba dom ba dom ba ba dom

How do you plea?
Not Guilty!
Your honor!
I think you
And your entire organization is corrupt and filthy
Herb must be burn! Lawd!
Dem seh yuh a di herbsman, and mi a di farmer
And anywey mi go marijuana deh pon di corner
Jah know, I seh di good sensimelia
Then rastaman yuh must glow
Hey seh yuh a di herbsman, and mi a di farmer
And anywey mi go ganja must deh pon di corner
Jah know, a just di good sensimelia
Then rastaman yuh must glow
Yo it's a spiritual lift and we nuh tink bout traffic
Di scent a mi herbs Babylon tek sip
To kill every herb seed dat is there wish
Mek a violation all because a one spliff
Di AC mek mi high when a sweat start drip
Cough mi nuh illy cau mi know mi nuh sick
Outlaw chemist who use two chalice
Spliff inna mi hand mi have mi ting pon mi hip
Move dem mek di rudebwoy flash it and dash it
Mek nuh mistake it a automatic
Fools they crush and mi seh eediat panic
Spliff deh inna mi hand man a move like bionic
Go deh Buju Banton wid a musical gift
Ragga muffin pass di chalice and dash mi and spliff and just
