Tamb hi ha Smile Jamaica slow version (3:19) de final de 1976.

Feeling out, feeling down:
This feeling wouldnt leave me alone.
Then up came-a one that said (hey, Dread):
"Hey, Dread, dry, Natty Dread, and smile!"

Youre in Jamaica: Cmon and smile!
(In Jamaica, yall) Get it together, yall!
(In Jamaica) Get it together, now!
In Jamaica, yall.

Soulful down, soulful people:
Said, I see youre having fun,
Dancin to the reggae rhythm,
Oh island in the sun:
Oh smile!

(In Jamaica) Cmon and smile!
(In Jamaica, yall) Get it together, right now!
(In Jamaica) Get it together, children!
(In Jamaica, yall)

Were gonna help our people, help them right;
Oh Lord, help us tonight!
Cast away that evil spell;
Throw some water in the well,
And smile!

(In Jamaica) Cmon and smile!
(In Jamaica, yall) Get things together, right now!
(In Jamaica) Get it together, right now!
(In Jamaica, yall)

Riddim wise (wise),
Dub-a wise (wise),
And other wise (wise)
Cant criticize (wise) our smile.

(In Jamaica) Youre gonna smile!
(In Jamaica, yall) Get it together, right now!
(In Jamaica) Get things together, right yow!
(In Jamaica, yall)

Help the people, help them right!
Oh Lord, help us tonight!
Cast away evil spell;
Throw some water in the well,
And smile!

(In Jamaica) Youre gonna smile!
(In Jamaica, yall) Get it together, children!
(In Jamaica) Get things together, right yow!
(In Jamaica, yall)

Soulful down, soulful people,
Said, I know - I know that youre having fun
