lyrics

Yes-I, the original Slow Boat Riddim', 'nuff respect to da farmers dem'!

Straighten up, firm it up, on the ground, hear the sound
Straighten up, firm it up, on the ground, hear the sound

If you play, (if you play, if you play) I'll play with you
And if you dance, you know I'll rock with you.
If you play, (if you play, if you play) I'll play with you
And if you dance, you know I'll rock with you.

Every day, (every day, every day) the sunrise
Thanks and praise, yours and mine.
Every day, (every day, every day) the sunrise
Thanks and praise, yours and mine.
Thanks and praise, yours and mine.
Thanks and praise, yours and mine.

Straighten up firm it up from the mountain to the sea
In the place where the fruit is just drippin' from the tree.
Givin' thanks from the sunrise to the sunset
We're livin' it so good we ain't seen nothin' yet
One love one heart one song
Stand up trod firm wise up be strong get along
Straighten up firm it up say on the ground can hear the sound
Said if you play then I will play and if you dance we'll rock this town!

Straighten up, firm it up, on the ground, hear the sound
Straighten up, firm it up, on the ground, hear the sound

If you play, (if you play, if you play) I'll play with you
And if you dance, you know I'll rock with you.
If you play, (if you play, if you play) I'll play with you
And if you dance, you know I'll rock with you.

Every day, (every day, every day) the sunrise
Thanks and praise, yours and mine.
Every day, (every day, every day) the sunrise
Thanks and praise, yours and mine.
Thanks and praise, yours and mine.
Thanks and praise, yours and mine.

Straighten up firm it up from the mountain to the sea
In the place where the fruit is just drippin' from the tree.
Givin' thanks from the sunrise to the sunset
We're livin' it so good we ain't seen nothin' yet

Ain't seen nothin' yet no we ain't seen nothing yet
It's the changing of the guard so straighten up and come correct
We're searching out knowledge and wisdom wrapped in kindness and respect
This jam is for the people brave enough to take a step
Upon the dance floor shake and bake a dis ting here
Love positive vibrations ringing through the atmosphere
Hawaiians know the 'aina bless up with the fruits we hold so dear
So we chant ALOHA, to the people whether far of near it's
One love a one heart a one song,
Stand up and trod firm and wise up and be strong
Straighten up firm it up say on the ground can hear the sound
Said if you play then I will play and if you dance we'll rock this town
Said a- this is the stop when a ting's a get hot
3 'oclock a road block is in effect just don't stop
Mash it up a dreadlocks and blaze it up kanaka
Kaua'i girls and boys they love the reggae non-stop! Said a

Straighten up, firm it up, on the ground, hear the sound!
