LYRICS

Intro

Jump jump jump jump up jump
Ha ha hi bamber lamba lamba lay
Ha ha hi

Verse 1

Is every time that you play,
Ah behaving this way
As you count 1 2 3
As if you telling me
Jump up and play,
Yuh can’t resist the felling
If yuh fast or yuh slow,
Is when you put on ah show
Doh know what it be,
How you beholding me
Whether near or far is as if yuh saying:

Chorus

Jump up and play yuh self
Jump up and play yuh self
Jump up and play yuh self
Play yuh self, play yuh self, play yuh self,
Jump up and play yuh self
Jump up and play yuh self
Jump up and play yuh self
Play yuh self, play yuh self, play yuh self
Jump up and play yuh self
Just tee tee vye yuh self
Jump up and play yuh self
Play yuh self, play yuh self
Play yuh self, play yuh self.

Verse 2

Some say diamonds and pearls
Be it silver or gold
So harmonically, oh what ah tapestry
Take me places I never thought I could be
Inside out upside down
It’s the mood every song
As yuh rhyme show, well how I just doh know
With every touch you keep saying to me.

Chorus

Verse 3

Not even festival day
Is what or where that you play
As you start to motion, I does get a notion
To pull meh rag, and to start the jumping
Whether yuh big or yuh small
It doh matter at all
The way you thrill me;
Is how you does send me
Every time yuh play
Is as if ah hearing:

Chorus

Bridge

Jump up and play -
Ah must break away
Jump up play, with meh rag in meh hand
And ah making bacchanal
Play, jump up and play
Ah must break away
Well wicked meh self
And ah making bacchanal
Play, jump up and play
Ah must break away
With meh rag in meh hand
And ah making bacchanal.
