So, they are not governed by the spirit of God, or Jah. Q: When you did these great lyrics, did you sit down and work them out or…. A: That song came very quick, usually in those days songs came very quick to me, just like you hear the riddim, listen the riddim, and then [snaps his fingers] the inspiration just come.
