    Pass The Dutchie


    This generation
    Rules the nation
    With version

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

    I say: Pass the Dutchie on the left hand side
    Pass the Dutchie on the left hand side
    It a gonna burn, give me music make me jump and prance
    It a go done, give me the music make me rock in the dance

    It was a cool and lovely breezy afternoon
    (How does it feel when you've got no food ?)
    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 pass the dreadlocks' camp I heard them say
    (How does it feel when you've got no food ?)

    Pass the Dutchie on the left hand side
    Pass the Dutchie on the left hand side
    It a gonna burn, give me music make me jump and prance
    It a go done, give me the music make me rock in the dance

    So I stopped to find out what was going on.
    (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 swing
    (How does it feel when you've got no food ?)
    You could feel the chill as I seen and heard them say
    (How does it feel when you've got no food ?)

    Pass the Dutchie on the left hand side
    Pass the Dutchie on the left hand side
    It a gonna burn, give me music make me jump and prance
    It a go done, give me the music make me rock in the dance

    '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, I say

    Pass the Dutchie on the left hand side
    Pass the Dutchie on the left hand side
    It a gonna burn, give me music make me jump and prance
    It a go done, give me the music make me rock in the dance

    You play it on the radio, a so me say, we a go hear it on the 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

    Pass the Dutchie on the left hand side
    Pass the Dutchie on the left hand side
    It a gonna burn, give me music make me jump and prance
    It a go done, give me the music make me rock in the dance

    I say east, say west, say north and south (on the left hand side)
    This is gonna make us jump and shout (on the left hand side)

    "Songfacts:
    Originally "Pass The Kutchie," meaning marijuana pipe. Because all the members were between 11 and 16 years old at the time, the group's manager suggested a lyic change, replacing "Kouchie" with "Dutchie." The name change also helped it get airplay on radio and MTV. (thanks, Brad Wind - Miami, FL)
    A "Dutchie" is a Jamaican cooking pot.
    The first version of this came out earlier in 1982 by Reggae group The Mighty Diamonds. Called "Pass The Kutchie," it had a heavy, slow beat and got very little airplay."
