My Favorite Song by Bob Marley
My Favorite Song by Bob Marley is Jammin’
I like this song because it is very relaxing and
catchy. Also it has a good fun meaning to it.
No bullet can stop us now, we neither beg nor
we won't bow;
Neither can be bought nor sold.
We all defend the right; Jah - Jah children must
Your life is worth much more than gold.
