The Lyrics

... who doesn't?
Intro: C’mon and listen ha!
Hey! Whoa!
Yeah, yeah

Uh, uh, uh
This one goes out to all those in the Caribbean

Chorus: I say hey you know what to play
Just move other music right out the way
It seems like everything I hear
It sounds like crap
The answer’s clear
But I know one thing
I love Reggae (yes I do)
Love Reggae, love Reggae, love Reggae

Verse 1: I’ve been a lot of countries all around the Earth
I’ve heard a lot of crap and I’ve heard some even worse
And I didn’t think that any song could impress
But then I went to Jamaica and now I am obsessed
Steel drums always a bangin’ go that island feel
And the dancin’ just gives you such an island thrill
When I heard these magic tunes and I knew it was true
And I love to blast some Reggae and I have to groove

Chorus: I say hey you know what to play
Just move other music right out the way
It seems like everything I hear
It sounds like crap
The answer’s clear
But I know one thing
I love Reggae (yes I do)
Love Reggae, love Reggae, love Reggae

Verse 2: Now I’m not technically a “Caribbean Queen”
But maybe I was born with Jamaican genes
Bumpin’ to the music like you are in Barbados
If you’ve listened to Bob, you already know
Rockin’ on the sand beach
Eatin’ some fruit
Dancin’ in the streets in the middle of June
Bob Marley told me don’t worry
Cuz there’s no reason to hurry

Chorus: I say hey you know what to play
Just move other music right out the way
It seems like everything I hear
It sounds like crap
The answer’s clear
But I know one thing
I love Reggae (yes I do)
Love Reggae, love Reggae, love Reggae

Bridge: And I said
Kickin’ it with Shaggy, it “Wasn’t Me”
I say hey Shaggy, hey Shaggy
Chill with me
Dancin’ to Sean Paul, and havin’ a party
I say hey Seany, hey Seany
Chill with me
Kickin’ it with Shaggy, it “Wasn’t Me”
I say hey Shaggy, hey Shaggy
Chill with me
Dancin’ to Sean Paul, and havin’ a party
I say hey Seany, hey Seany
Hey Shaggy, hey Shaggy
Hey Seany, hey Seany
Hey Shaggy, hey Shaggy
What are you listenin’ to?
Bob Marley told me don’t worry
Cuz there’s no reason to hurry
And I know one thing
I love Reggae

Chorus: I say hey you know what to play
Just move other music right out the way
It seems like everything I hear
It sounds like crap
The answer’s clear

Chorus: I say hey you know what to play
Just move other music right out the way
It seems like everything I hear
It sounds like crap
The answer’s clear
And I know one thing
I love Reggae (yes I do)
Love Reggae, love Reggae, love Reggae

Love Reggae, love Reggae, love Reggae

Love Reggae, love Reggae, love Reggae

Love Reggae, love Reggae, love Reggae

Kickin’ it with Bobby, what ‘bout you?
I say hey Shaggy, hey Shaggy
Kickin’ it with Bobby, what ‘bout you?
I say hey Shaggy, hey Shaggy
