Bob Marley & the Wailers (feat. Bunny Wailer) – Pass It On

Posted on Updated on

A kind word from Bunny Wailer, speaking from and to the heart of Rasta consciousness:

What your hands do,
It’s your own eyes that see,
So won’t you judge you’re actions
To make sure the results are clean.
It’s your own conscience that is gonna remind you
That it’s your heart and nobody else’s
That is gonna judge.

Be not selfish in your doings,
Pass it on
Help your brothers in their needs
Pass it on
Live for yourself – you will live in vain
Live for others – you will live again
In the kingdom of Jah Man shall reign
Pass it on…

What’s in the darkness
Must be revealed to light
We’re not here to judge what’s good from bad
But to do the things that are right
On a hot sunny day
Under the shadow is rescue
But as the day grows old
I know where the sun is gonna find you

Be not selfish in your doings,
Pass it on
Help your brothers in their needs
Pass it on
Live for yourself – you will live in vain
Live for others – you will live again
In the kingdom of Jah Man shall reign
Pass it on…

The original Bunny Wailer version is also choice.

    I have often wondered why that album wasn’t referred to as Peter Tosh and the Wailers.

      It was IMO as-yet unclear if Marley would be the leader, considering Tosh’s eminence and the notoriety of his band members. That Bob Marley emerged as the leader of the band –a prophet to Caribbean folk– was IMO a function of Tosh’s individual career goals and his own burgeoning song-writing & musical chops.
