No bones, No blood Inna Mi Kitchen

I stumbled upon this video and the singer makes a small reference to raw vegans! It is sung in Jamaican patois (a dialect). It's an ode to vegetarianism. The song is called "No bones, No blood" by Jah Sun feat. Ras Attitude and Lutan Fyah. Enjoy!

Here are the lyrics! Thanks to Loan.

No bones no blood inna mi kitchen
We nah go mix up in a dem vampire livin'
No bones no blood inna mi kitchen
I say Rastafari you're my greatest ambition
No bones no blood inna mi kitchen
Me synchronized with the most high's vision
No bones no blood inna mi kitchen
Please let the animal keep livin'

Mi see sey nuff a dem
No show no respect for life
Run! Here comes the butcher man
And he coming with his knife
More pain and more death
A pure murder
Life dem take fi dem steak and hamburger
Mi rather plant some seed in a di mud
Than to tear thru some flesh and go guzzle blood
Carnivore, stop fighting it, stop fighting it
Eh, give ital life a try
You just might gain some enlightenment
A this the one for love all of my vegetarians
Raw fooders and vegans and all the breathetarians
Yo, cuz I n I nah put no dead in a we temple
True humbleness we have fi live simple
To put some food upon the plate
Mi no need no hook, mi nah need no bait
I n I the roots mi food me nah fi shoot
A give me vegetable and some fruits, mi go so..

Chorus~

Dem a wonder why the rasta never age
Dem no stop from look up in a dem health book page
Vegetarians will aways live
Cuz everything we eat always positive
And everything we drink it never yet negative
You are what you eat
That's why you walk like pig
You are what you eat that's why you [snort] like a pig
You treat your body wrong your own a grave you dig
Yo don't panic, cuz i'm organic
Pure soy soup in a mi kitchen, yes mi got it
Yo don't panic, cuz i'm organic
Lentil peas in a mi soup, mi got it
Yo don't panic, cuz i'm organic
Vegan life mi live and nun a dem can stop it
Calabash, okra and squash yes mi got it
Ready fi go boil it and stop it!

Chorus~

Tell 'em natural herbs have fi we dinner
Ital is vital in a di pot dat we cookin'
Natural herbs have fi we dinner
Tell 'em no bones, no flesh
Yes, natural herbs have fi we dinner
Ital is vital in a di pot dat we cookin'
Natural herbs have fi we dinner
We gots some man a lutan Fyah
Tell 'em roots, strongback and sarsaparilla
Fruit, orange, mango and guava
Vegetable salad with peanut and cashew
With some clean drinking water
I got a bucket full of herbs
And some strong marijuana
Yes, you know that i'm a farmer
Eh, the food that i eat is my medicine
Tell you man, a real bush doctor
Cleanse dem wit garlic and bitters
I nah go jump pon rome filthy lickers
Go till the marijuana, mek mi slippers
No pork chops in a mi fritters

Chorus~

Thanks for sharing the vid! Haven't seen it before, so was excited as always when the movement is promoted in such a beautiful & blessed way.

& the even gave a shot-out to the breatharians, wow.

Here's the vid on Youtube cos the link you posted doesn't seem to work anymore (perhaps it's also a network problem, who knows): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9Cmt8E1NYI

Keep on walking in the light.
A showed of blessings for you & your family,

Thanks for the love, Chantal-Fleur. Some people have asked me for the lyrics because the dialect may be a little too strong for them; I'll add them later. Didn't the pineapple look so nice and juicy?

Kiki said...

Hahaha. Great video and you're right, the pineapple looked great and so did the mangoes. I like your blog.

After finding this incredibly awesome (i probably have a really really biased opinion of it bcuz of what they say, no doubt the music is great but you know... heh) video on YouTube i was looking for the lyrics and here they are! I don't speak english often but now i understand everything, thanks alot for posting the lyrics people. Oh and i almost forgot... maybe if i type it with caps lock people from everywhere on the web will see it: THINK ABOUT OTHERS THAN YOURSELF, GO VEGAN, VEGETARIAN OR SOMETHINGTARIAN-THAT'S-TRYING-TO-THINK-ABOUT-OTHER-SUFFERING-BEINGS! I did. Took me long enough though... Having some crazy hopes isn't that bad right?... I'll go continue to pollute everyones minds with my messages, outside and on the web hehe. Peace. -A lazy vegan who's trying to be less of a freakin vampire
