Waan Back
Anthony B Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Waan back mi waterpumpee,
Mi cool an deadly fi go dance with we ladies
Dem a dance ya too funky
Make man a move inna di dance like junkies.

Ihr hört uns Hyperhifistereo
Oder als muffiges Desaster auf'm tapefressenden Blaster
Singen tun wir sowieso, vielleicht könnt ihr's erahnen zwischen Brosis
Und Bin laden wir die homies ein
Denn wir sind nich' gern allein
Der eine braucht nur sein TV, wir brauchen die Family
In diesen eisigen Zeiten voll von durchgeknallten Leuten
Is' es unser Job die, heißen Hooks und Zeilen zu verbreiten,
Du bist hart, du willst streiten, kriegst 'n halbsteifen beim Fighten
Geh doch in die USA und feier da, geh Bullenreiten
Geh bloß uns nich' auf'n sack weil du zu feige bist zu tanzen,
Zieh die teure Jacke aus du Körperklaus, zeigma' was kannst?
Wir moven gut in jedem Look, im freshen und verranzten
DU mit deinem Benni Miles schockst nur Vorstadtpommeranzen
Yes we

Waan back mi waterpumpee,
Mi cool an deadly fi go dance with we ladies
Dem a dance ya too funky
Make man a move inna di dance like junkies

See your hip shake, watch your shape babe, dive in your lake
Dream come awake and make this tune earthquake
Do you tape it, naked, sun bake it, all I can take.
Put in my toaster., hit that cake, ride our ghost ya
Rollercoaster ­ ain't no fake ma
Top to coast we want them most
Oh ladiees may these tracks help move your legs.

No turn back, disya dancehall-drug gonna hit like a killa
Get loose in your waist, put a smile on your face ­ set the dance on fire!
'Cause the flow of a girl and man
From creation is meant to be a divine combination
To all a mi bredren inna land
Don't waste time and give dem girls satisfaction

Waan back mi waterpumpee,
Mi cool an deadly fi go dance with we ladies




Dem a dance ya too funky
Make man a move inna di dance like junkies

Overall Meaning

The lyrics mention the need to spread "hot hooks and lines" during this "icy time," possibly referring to the political or social climate. The lyrics then mention the need for a release, to dance and let go of stress. The German verse ends with a challenge to those who are afraid to dance, to shed their identities and show what they can really do on the dance floor.

Respeto a los artistas de reggae de jamaica , jamaica siempre a sido la inspiracion de nosotros los panameños es por eso que el reggae de panama y jaima es casi igual en ritmo sonidos , la forma de los panameños bailar el reggae de jamaica es igual que el de jamaica
