Adelaja - Legendary

I(Adelaja) and Tarrus Riley were on a musical endeavor when he got booked for a Peter Tosh tribute celebration and he said that I should write a poem about Tosh.

So I asked him to write down the names of some of Peter Tosh's songs, which he did then I wrote this dub-poem. I performed this poem at the symposium at the UWI(University of the West Indies) and the Annual Peter Tosh tribute show in Savanna-lamar by Worrell King, a long time friend of Tosh. This poem was well received in appreciation of the legendary Peter Tosh contributions to world culture coming from island Jamaica.

Lyrics

Legendary (written by Simpson Whyte)

CHORUS
If a no Peter Tosh den a who
Cannabis canabite carry di banner
Dyana igzehiber ena sut ymas agana
Bun donkey razor blade and monkey spanner

VERSE 1
mi si di slightet hypest ketch reggae-mylitis
but if yuh tell dem bout di bush dacta dem try fight it
Ano just dis weh want equal rights and justice
Nyabingi bobo shanti mama Afican banner rise it
Lightninig thunda man ano flint stone
Pan di down press a man wi fling brimstone
But hail di mystic man weh bring the light in di dim zone

CHORUS
If a no Peter Tosh den a who
Cannabis canabite carry di banner
Dyana igzehiber ena sut ymas agana
Bun donkey razor blade and monkey spanner

VERSE 2
Mawga dog cyah bite di lion

Cah nuh nuclear war cyah harm di World

CHORUS
If a no Peter Tosh den a who
Cannabis canabite carry di banner
Dyana igzehiber ena sut ymas agana
Bun donkey razor blade and monkey spanner

VERSE 3
Balistically istic the mystic one
Metaphysically highstically naturally

CHORUS
If a no Peter Tosh den a who
Cannabis canabite carry di banner
Dyana igzehiber ena sut ymas agana
Bun donkey razor blade and monkey spanner
