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 day would be a proper fit.

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.
Positive? You call this positive? This is a Marley farce! He did it as a joke on all stupid whites. :moon:
always worthwhile to get a Positive Vibration, but it sounds especially good in Paradise on a Friday.
:notworthy: :bounce: :notworthy: Thanks Bob!
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.
