Live if you want to live
(Rastaman vibration, yeah! Positive!)
That's what we got to give!
(I'n'I vibration yeah! Positive)
Got to have a good vibe!
(Iyaman Iration, yeah! Irie ites!)
Wo-wo-ooh!
(Positive vibration, yeah! Positive!)

If you get down and you quarrel everyday,
You're saying prayers to the devils, I say. Wo-oh-ooh!
Why not help one another on the way?
Make it much easier. (Just a little bit easier)

Say you just can't live that negative way,
If you know what I mean;
Make way for the positive day,
'Cause it's news (new day) - news and days -
New time (new time), and if it's a new feelin' (new feelin'), yeah! -
Said it's a new sign (new sign):
Oh, what a new day!

Pickin' up?
Are you pickin' up now?
Jah love - Jah love (protect us);
Jah love - Jah love (protect us);
Jah love - Jah love (protect us).

Rastaman vibration, yeah! (Positive!)
I'n'I vibration, yeah! (Positive!) Uh-huh-huh, a yeah!
Iyaman Iration, yeah! (Irie ites!) Wo-oo-oh!
*Positive vibration, yeah! (Positive!)

Pickin' up?
Are you pickin' up now?
Pickin' up?
Are you pickin' up now?
Pickin' up? (Jah love, Jah love -)
Are you pickin' (protect us!) up now?
Pickin' up? (Jah love, Jah love -)
Are you pickin' (protect us!) up now?
Pickin' up? (Jah love, Jah love -)
Are you pickin' (protect us!) up now?
Pickin' up?
Are you pickin' up now?

Once a month? Harsh.
Ahhhh...nothing like some Rastaman Vibration on a cold snowy day. 
Dude, this is THE HAPPIEST, most POSITIVE tune. Puts a smile on my face on rainy days for sure! My fav Marley album.
Not Bob's best by a long stretch. Just feels like a paint-by-numbers job for tourists only...but then it is 2:45 am. 
 

Haven't heard any positive vibrations through the wall lately.
live if you wanna live    jah man

Too much reggae being played of late.  Can you dial it back a bit, Bill?

 
I'm afraid you're going to have to change your screen name.

Positive? You call this positive? This is a Marley farce! He did it as a joke on all stupid whites.
 
Wha?? I don't understand the lyrics or your comment. 
Like the song a lot, though. The music, I mean.

Your emoticon is apropos....from whence you speak.
To you Aloysius...all those years ago...{#Cheers}
Watched the documentary about him last nite...produced by David Marley ( Ziggy)
I love this man!
His message lives on!

Everybody in my church loves this song...

It is still a great song even though I do not understand what the Hell you are talking about. I suppose I am just a stupid white that likes this song, I can live with that.{#Yes}
{#Notworthy}
Bob is the Giant of Reggae.

Not played for 6 and a half year....{#Stupid}
I find disco to be only marginally more detesting than reggae.

always worthwhile to get a Positive Vibration, but it sounds especially good in Paradise on a Friday.
:notworthy: :bounce: :notworthy: Thanks Bob!
February 6th is the birthday of the Honerable Robert Nesta Marley O.M. In these troubled times his message and this song in particular are a comfort to me. \"Jah love protect us...\" Thanks Bill. Ed
Please play the live version from "Babylon By Bus" please!!! Anything by BMW is great, but better play better versions than not-so-good-ones! I'll upload it.
