Nice Time
Ky-Mani Marley Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Long time we no have no nice time,
Doo-yoo-dee-dun-doo-yea.
Think about that.
(Repeat)

This is my heart to rock you steady.
I'll give you love the time you're ready.
This little heart in me
Just won't let me be.
I'm just to rock you, now.
Won't you rock with me?
Long time we no have no nice time,
Doo-yoo-dee-dun-doo-yeah.



Think about that.
(Repeat)
