Give me the natural bly, that's what we want

Iyashanti:
Mi nah go hide and lick mi herb
Cause a it a preserve mi nerve, wha wo wo eh
Mi nah go hide and lick mi herb
Sergeant Brown mi nah disturb, no-o

Mi a go lick it in the dance, lick it at the stage show,
Lick it everywhere we go
Mi a go lick it in the club while we do the rub-a-dub
The same time the vibes a flow

Cause a it a preserve mi nerve, nah woy
Mi nah go hide and lick mi herb

Anthony B.:

Tired fi have mi weed and see police and mask
Police bwoy kiss out mi, rastafari

Tired fi lick mi chalice in a bush, ey yo

Tired fi have mi weed and see police and mask

Tired fi lick mi chalice in a bush, yo
Want to go out in the open
Tired fi have mi weed and see police and mask
Police bwoy kiss out mi, rastafari




Tired fi lick mi chalice in a bush, yagga yo
Want to go out in the open
