#MusicMonday – Oh my word …

Whooop whooop! Welcome to this week’s #MusicMonday. For those of you who don’t know 😱😱, this is my weekly post where I share a track I really like, all under the meme created by Drew Weldon, The Tattooed Book Geek.

So it’s my birthday week and also it’s a particularly intense (stressful) time with work so I’ve picked a track that perks me up and makes me dance around the kitchen like a loon. It so gets turned up to the max when it comes on the radio or the magical playlist. One day, I’m sure I’ll have an accident with my car dancing…. This track is not really my normal listen at all, the lyrics don’t really make sense (to me) but like I said it, it lifts my mood and it puts a “let’s dance” kinda smile on my face … enjoy…

Bass, drum, table
Little ‘bit of me-dem on the table
With the D to the me, the la-di-bi-ble
Left to the right and in the middle
How? What? Why? When?
When I hear di riddim I sets that trend
‘Round that corner, ’round the bend
Galloping just like Ralph Lauren
I’m galloping

Jheeze
Ooh, ooh
