It draws on American “soul” music and traditional African and Jamaican folk music, as well as ska—Jamaican-British dance-hall music.

Bob Marley – One Love


Speaking: You know I have to be honest It’s like for the first time in my life, My pride is not involved I’m not afraid I’m not afraid to tell you girl, That I love you Believe that And if I can’t have you, I don’t know what ima do Listen to me
Verse 1: So many people never find the one And that’s why I really wanna tell you something I really think this is it for me I really think you’re the one I need Cause baby I done had em all I don’t want nobody but you Uh, Oh darlin’
Bridge: Hunny, let me break it down See, we livin in a lonely world Aint you tired of the runnin round? Don�t you wanna be my only girl? Baby can I be the one you call? When you’re tired of the lies And the truth is all you wanna hear Well if you swear
Chorus: Baby, here I am (here I am) I�m your man (I’m your man) Came with everything you needed Now you and me are undefeated, Till the end of time One mind, one heart, one love (All you gotta do is) Take my hand (take my hand) We will stand (we will stand) This was made to last forever, So lets say it together, for the rest of time One mind, one heart, one love.
Verse 2: Ohh, Listen baby I’ll give you all I’m worth From my head down to my shoes And girl if we gone work, Then I need the same from you I know that so many other dudes cheat But so many dudes ain’t me Give me my pick of any dime And I’ll pick you girl every time
I just wanna break it down [ From: http://www.metrolyrics.com/one-love-lyrics-trey-songz.html ] See, we livin in a lonely world Ain’t you tired of the runnin round? Don’t you wanna be my only girl? Baby can I be the one you call? When you’re tired of the lies And the truth is all you wanna hear If you swear
Baby, here I am (here I am) I’m your man (I’m your man) I came with everything you needed You and me are undefeated, Till the end of time One mind, one heart, one love All you gotta do is, Take my hand (take my hand) We will stand (we will stand) This was made to last forever, So lets say it together for the rest of time One mind, one heart, one love
Hook: Ohh, Love is hard to find But love is one of a kind And I got mine So if you got yours, Then you know what your livin’ for This goes out to all my lovers tonight And if you listenin’ to my groove, And your baby’s next to you, Tell em You are all I need and I’ll never let go (Yeah baby) (Can you say it one time?) You are all I need and I’ll never let go (Never let go of you)
And here I am (here I am) I’m your man (I’m your man) I came with everything you needed You and me are undefeated, Till the end of time One mind, one heart, one love All you gotta do is, Take my hand (take my hand) We will stand (we will stand) This was made to last forever, So lets say it together for the rest of time One mind, one heart, one love

One Love/People Get Ready” is a reggae/rhythm and blues song by Bob Marley & The Wailers from their 1977 album Exodus. It was first recorded in a ska style by Marley’s original group, The Wailers, on their 1965 debut album The Wailing Wailers, and a heavily reworked version was included on African Herbsman under the name “All in One”. A classic Bob Marley & The Wailers song, it has been included on many of their compilation albums. The song contains an interpolation of The Impressions‘ song “People Get Ready” written by Curtis Mayfield. Marley’s hybrid version is titled, “One Love/People Get Ready,”[1] and it gives co-authorship credits to both Marley and Mayfield. This song was inspired by Marley’s friend Roman Selvaggio, a North Caribbean painter.
