Roots, Radicals, Rockers And Reggae Lyrics

Artist: Stiff Little Fingers
Album: Go for It

You roots, you radicals, you rock to the reggae
You roots, you radicals, you dub to the reggae
you roots, you radicals, you skank to the reggae, you roots

Let there be peace in the east, peace in the west
You roots, you radicals and all the rest
I said peace up north, peace down south
Peace in the ghettoes all round about
We are all in a one and one in all
So throw away the guns and the war's all gone
Throw away the hunger and the war's all gone
Throw away the fighting and the war's all gone
Throw away the grudges and the war's all gone.

C'mon you roots, you radicals, you rock to the reggae
You roots, you radicals, you dub to the reggae
You roots, you radicals, you skank to the reggae, you roots

Love and respect you itren and protect your little sistren
And the same shall return to you, my friend
I said don't fight against no colour class or creed
For on discrimination does violence breed
I said we are all in a one and on in all
So throw away the guns and the war's all gone
Throw away the hunger and the war's all gone
Throw away the fighting and the war's all gone
Throw away the grudges and war's all gone

C'mon you roots, you radicals, you rock to the reggae
You roots, you radicals, you dub to the reggae
You roots, you radials, you skank to the reggae, you roots
Come on now

Comfort the afflicted and keep them from harm
Let age be protected and the infants be strong
GO FOR IT

You got to pass the bowl and make the food go round
Cos that's the only way to trample crime to the ground
Equal rights and justice for one and all
Cos only through liberty freedom shall form
Don't fight against no colour class nor creed
For on discrimination does violence breed
We are all in a one and one in all
So throw away the guns and the war's all gone
Throw away the hunger and the war's all gone
Throw away the fighting and the war's all gone
Throw away the guns and the war's all gone
Throw away the hunger and the war's all gone
Throw away the fighting and the war's all gone
Throw away the grudges and the war's all gone
