One Love, One Heart
Let’s get together and feel all right
Hear the children crying (One Love)
Hear the children crying (One Heart)
Sayin’ give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
Sayin’ let’s get together and feel all right

Let them all pass all their dirty remarks (One Love)
There is one question I’d really like to ask (One Heart)
Is there a place for the hopeless sinner
Who has hurt all mankind just to save his own?
Believe me

One Love, One Heart
Let’s get together and feel all right
As it was in the beginning (One Love)
So shall it be in the end (One Heart)
Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
One more thing

Let’s get together to fight this Holy Armageddon (One Love)
So when the Man comes there will be no no doom (One Song)
Have pity on those whose chances grove thinner
There ain’t no hiding place from the Father of Creation

Sayin’ One Love, One Heart
Let’s get together and feel all right
I’m pleading to mankind (One Love)
Oh Lord (One Heart)

Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
Let’s get together and feel all right

– Bob Marley

Bob Marley: Stir it Up

I have a memory of going to the Coney Island Aquarium with my family back in 1994 that I will never forget. It was a beautiful sunny day in May and we were watching one of those dolphin spectacles that Aquarium’s offer a couple of times a day. I remember them playing Stir it Up by Bob Marley and the Wailers. I fell in love with the song instantly. It went so well with the weather and mood I was in at that moment in time. It was the first time I heard a Bob Marley song, or any Reggae song for that matter.

To this day when I want to calm down and feel happy I put on that song and listen to it. Enjoy!

Stir It Up

Stir it up; little darlin’, stir it up. come on, baby.
Come on and stir it up: little darlin’, stir it up. o-oh!

It’s been a long, long time, yeah!

Since I got you on my mind. (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh) oh-oh!
Now you are here (stir it, stir it, stir it together), I said,
It’s so clear
There’s so much we could do, baby, (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Just me and you.

Come on and stir it up; …, little darlin’!
Stir it up; come on, baby!
Come on and stir it up, yeah!
Little darlin’, stir it up! o-oh!

I’ll push the wood (stir it, stir it, stir it together),
Then I blaze ya fire;
Then I’ll satisfy your heart’s desire. (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Said, I stir it every (stir it, stir it, stir it together),
Every minute:
All you got to do, baby, (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Is keep it in, eh!

(stir it up) oh, little darlin’,
Stir it up; …, baby!
Come on and stir it up, oh-oh-oh!
Little darlin’, stir it up! wo-oh! mm, now, now.

Quench me when I’m thirsty;
Come on and cool me down, baby, when I’m hot. (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Your recipe is, – darlin’ – is so tasty,
When you show and stir your pot. (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)

So: stir it up, oh!
Little darlin’, stir it up; wo, now!
Come on and stir it up, oh-ah!
Little darlin’, stir it up!

Oh, little darlin’, stir it up. come on, babe!
Come on and stir it up, wo-o-a!
Little darlin’, stir it up! stick with me, baby!
Come on, come on and stir it up, oh-oh!
Little darlin’, stir it up.

Bob Marley: Redemption Song

In celebration and remembrance of Bob Marley’s birthday I will spend the rest of the day posting his song lyrics. Aside from his beautiful melodic riffs, the lyrics to his songs are as good as poetry. His music is universal. It speaks to humanity as a whole, containing the message of peace, love, spirituality, and unity. Redemption Song is one of my favorite Bob Marley songs. Therefore, it will be the first song I will be posting tonight.

Enjoy!

Redemption Song

Old pirates, yes, they rob i;
Sold I to the merchant ships,
Minutes after they took i
From the bottomless pit.
But my hand was made strong
By the ’and of the almighty.
We forward in this generation
Triumphantly.
Won’t you help to sing
These songs of freedom? –
’cause all I ever have:
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs.

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
None but ourselves can free our minds.
Have no fear for atomic energy,
’cause none of them can stop the time.
How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look? ooh!
Some say it’s just a part of it:
We’ve got to fulfil de book.

Won’t you help to sing
These songs of freedom? –
’cause all I ever have:
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs.

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
None but ourselves can free our mind.
Wo! have no fear for atomic energy,
’cause none of them-a can-a stop-a the time.
How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look?
Yes, some say it’s just a part of it:
We’ve got to fulfil de book.
Won’t you help to sing
Dese songs of freedom? –
’cause all I ever had:
Redemption songs –
All I ever had:
Redemption songs:
These songs of freedom,
Songs of freedom.

– Bob Marley
