Pass The Dutchie Lyrics
{This generation
Rules the nation
With version}

{Music happen to be the food of love
Sounds to really make you rub and scrub}

[Chorus:]
{I say}
Pass the dutchie 'pon the left-hand side
Pass the dutchie 'pon the left-hand side
It'a gonna burn
{Give me the music, make me jump and prance}
It'a go done
{Give me the music, make me rockin' at the dance}

[Verse 1:]
It was a cool and lonely, breezy afternoon
{How does it feel when you've got no food}
An' you could feel it 'cause it was the month of June
{How does it feel when you've got no food}
So I left my gate and went out for a walk
{How does it feel when you've got no food}
As I passed the dreadlock's camp I heard them say
{How does it feel when you've got no food}

[Chorus:]
Pass the dutchie 'pon your left-hand side
{I say}
Pass the dutchie 'pon your left-hand side
It'a gonna burn
{Give me the music, make me jump and prance}
It'a go done
{Give me the music, make me rockin' at the dance}

[Verse 2:]
So I stopped to find out what was going
{How does it feel when you've got no food}
'Cause the spirit of Jah, you know he leads you on
{How does it feel when you've got no food}
There was a ring of dreads and a session was there in spring
{How does it feel when you've got no food}
An' you could feel the chill as I seen and heard them say
{How does it feel when you've got no food}

[Chorus:]
Pass the dutchie 'pon your left-hand side
{I say}
Pass the dutchie 'pon your left-hand side
It'a gonna burn
{Give me the music, make me jump and prance}
It'a go done
{Give me the music, make me rockin' at the dance}

[Verse 3:]
{'Cause me say listen to the drummer, me say listen to the bass
Give me little music, make me wind up me waist
Me say listen to the drummer, me say listen to the bass
Give me little music, make me wind up me waist}

[Chorus:]
{I say}
Pass the dutchie 'pon your left-hand side
{I say}
Pass the dutchie 'pon your left-hand side
It'a gonna burn
{Give me the music, make me jump and prance}
It'a go done
{Give me the music, make me rockin' at the dance}

[Verse 4:]
{You play it on the radio
A so me say we a go hear it on the stereo (stereo)
A so me know you a go play it on the disco
A so me say we a go hear it on the stereo (stereo)}

Pass the dutchie 'pon your left-hand side
{I say}
Pass the dutchie 'pon your left-hand side
It'a gonna burn
{Give me the music, make me jump and prance}
It'a go done
{Give me the music, make me rockin' at the dance}

On the left-hand side
{I say}
On the left-hand side
{I say}
On the left-hand side
On the left-hand side
On the left-hand side [et cetera... throughout... to end...]

{I say East, say West, say North and South
This is gonna really make us jump and shout [et cetera... to end...]
