"Dreadlock Holiday" is a song by 10cc, from their 1978 album, Bloody Tourists.  Written by Eric Stewart and Graham Gouldman the song was the lead single from the band's 1978 album, Bloody Tourists. Based on a true story told by Moody Blues vocalist Justin Hayward about a white man lost in Jamaica, it was a rare excursion into reggae for the act.




10cc - Dreadlock Holiday

I was walkin' down the street concentratin' on truckin' right
I heard a dark voice beside of me and I looked round in a state of fright
I saw four faces one mad a brother from the gutter
They looked me up and down a bit and turned to each other

I say
I don't like cricket oh no, I love it
I don't like cricket no no, I love it
Don't you walk thru my words
You got to show some respect
Don't you walk thru my words
'Cause you ain't heard me out yet

Well he looked down at my silver chain he said I'll give you one dollar
I said, You've got to be jokin' man it was a present from me Mother
He said, I like it I want it I'll take it off your hands
And you'll be sorry you crossed me you'd better understand that
You're alone, a long way from home

And I say
I don't like reggae no no, I love it
I don't like reggae oh no, I love it
Don't you cramp me style
Don't you queer on me pitch
Don't you walk thru my words
'Cause you ain't heard me out yet

I hurried back to the swimming pool sinkin' pina colada
I heard a dark voice beside me say would you like something harder
She said I've got it you want it my harvest is the best
And if you try it you'll like it and wallow in a Dreadlock Holiday

And I say
Don't like Jamaica oh no, I love her
Don't like Jamaica oh no, I love her oh yea
Don't you walk thru her words you got to show some respect
Don't you walk thru her words 'cause you ain't heard her out yet

I don't like cricket, I love it
I don't like reggae, I love it
Don't like Jamaica, I love her

Άσε να φεύγουν μερικοί μερικοί από τώρα για να γυρίσουν προτού φύγουμε εμείς οι υπόλοιποι και να κλαίνε τη μοίρα τους που βιάστηκαν.
