Do the Reggay
Toots and The Maytals Lyrics

I got a rich one (yeah)
Do you love me? (yeah)
Do you really want me? (yeah)
with all your heart (yeah)
I want to do the reggay (yeah)
With you (yeah)
Come onto me (Let's)
Do the dance (yeah)

Is this the new dance? (yeah)
Going around the town? (yeah)
We can move you baby (then)
Do the reggay
Do the reggay
Reggay reggay reggay
La la la la la laaaa

Do the Reggay
The term also denotes the modern popular music of Jamaica and its diaspora. A 1968 single by Toots and the Maytals, "Do the Reggay" was the first popular song to use the word "reggae", effectively naming the genre and introducing it to a global audience.

That is correct, reggae connected with the english word Rag. In 2012 he mention to the daily star " If a girl don"t look so nice or she wasn't dressed properly, we used to say she was ' streggay ' that word led him to come up with " Do the reggay ".

RIP Toots... sad news. Kingston is suddenly a whole lot less funky.


RIP Toots real legendary artist


Hugh Malcolm set the standard for reggae drumming right here! Watch that hightat swing, his drumming was unique and it kinda caused the shift from rocksteady to reggae.
