Israel Vibration – Herb Is The Healing

 

Israel Vibration

Israel Vibration is a Jamaican reggae band with the vocalist trio Lascelle “Wiss” Bulgin, Albert “Apple Gabriel” Craig, and Cecil “Skeleton” Spence as the core. They all had polio as children and met at a rehabilitation centre. They belong to the first generation of reggae artists, and have collaborated with many of Jamaica’s most prominent musicians.

The track The Same Song, which is found on their debut LP of the same name in 1978, came about through a collaborative project between Swedish Radio P3 and radio stations in several developing countries including Sri Lanka, Lebanon and Jamaica. The project was to show the similarities between cultures and melody.

Herb is the healing – Lyrics

It’s written right here
It’s absolutely clear that ganja herb is the healing of the nation
so dont have no fear and it will always be here
it’s going to be here for nuff generation(yeah)

they want you to feel tipsy turvy(tipsy turvy)
puppy dogs come piss in your face
they dont want to smoke the sweet lemon collie(sweet collie)
keep the smile upon the children’s face
you pick him up you lick him down you often try to run him down
the ganja man comin right back
and dis a much di collie bud
you chop it down you burn it down
the ganja plant comin right back
usin ur science laboratory resource
so many illness the collie herb cure
so why dont you give I and I the permit(to legalize the herb)
so I and I can go on and burn
rain come fallin make the ganja grow
and the sun come shining and the breeze the pollen blow

you pick him up you lick him down you often try to run him down
the ganja man comin right back
usin ur science laboratory resource
so many illness the collie herb cure

Peter neva get to lite the chalice but i willlite the biggest spliff inna di palace(Peter never lite)
Just anotha spliff fi get another lift I said take the rhythm to another riff

they want you to feel tipsy turvy(tipsy turvy)
puff it up and come ??
they dont want you to burn the sweet lemon collie(sweet collie)
keep the smile upon the children’s face
you pick him up you lick him down you often try to run him down
the ganja man comin right back
and dis a much di collie bud
you pick him up you run him down
the ganja man comin right back
and when di rain come fallin make ganja grow(yeah)
and when di sun come shinin the breeze the pollen blow(blow)
