Tenement Yard
Jacob Miller Lyrics


Right-o!
Hear dem say...ah ah ah!
Dreadlocks can't live in a...tenement

Dreadlocks can't live in a tenement yard
Dreadlocks can't live in a tenement yard
Too much su-su su-su su-su, too much watchie watchie you
Too much su-su su-su su-su, too much watchie what you are
(repeat)

Dreadlocks can't live in privacy
Anything him do, old nigga see
Too much watchie watchie watchie, too much su-su su-su su
Too much watchie watchie watchie, too much su-su su-su su

Dreadlocks can't smoke him pipe in peace
Too much informers and too much fears
Too much watchie watchie watchie, too much su-su su-su su
Too much watchie watchie watchie, too much su-su su-su su

Dreadlocks can't live in a tenement yard
Dreadlocks can't live in a tenement yard
Can't penetrate in a tenement yard
Can't penetrate in a tenement yard

Dreadlocks can't live in a tenement yard
Dreadlocks can't live in a tenement yard
Too much su-su su-su su-su, too much watchie watch you
Too much su-su su-su su-su, too much watchie what you are

Dreadlocks can't penetrate the rent man
All him a do is sell Jah Jah land
Too much watchie watchie watchie, too much su-su su-su
Can't penetrate in a tenement yard
Can't penetrate in a tenement yard

Dreadlocks can't lick him pipe in peace
Too much informers and too much fears
Too much watchie watchie watchie, too much su-su su-su su
Too much watchie watchie watchie, too much su-su su-su

Can't I-ditate in a tenement yard
Can't I-ditate in a tenement yard


Dreadlocks can't lick him pipe in peace
Too much Babylon and too much laws
Too much....
Too much informer.....

I heard this song when I was only seven. I'm brazilian and I didn't know English till now. Today, this song came to my mind again. I tried to search "reggae sususu" and this video appeared. I'm really happy... <3

Good times the square of reggae in Salvador, you arrive no high and get out too much high 😅😅😅😅

Tarantella LaRouge

@Fernando diniz I understand but it is not written in a tragic way but with some humour, don't you think ?

Fernando diniz

@Tarantella LaRouge It's not funny, it's about how dreadlocks\rastas are judged by society, in a bad way, and persecuted, Jacob just used the place as an analogy !," Dreadlocks can't lick him pipe in peace\Too much Babylon and too much laws\Too much....Too much informer.., He's talking about the people who report the police .
