Cliff, Jimmy - Wahjahka Man Lyrics

I never needed nobody, to show me how to walk
I never needed nobody, to teach me how to talk
Never needed nobody, to tell me make my mark
I'm experienced man, I can understand
I know how to get along

Wahjahka man, in a any land
In a Jamaica, in a Britannia (I'm a)
Wahjahka man, in a any land
In a Africa, in America (uh huh hey hey)

I never needed nobody, to come and hold me hand
I never needed nobody, to take me through' the land
Never needed nobody, to tell me make a stand
I'm experienced man, I can understand
I know how to get along

I never needed nobody, to show me how to walk
I never needed nobody, to teach me how to talk
Never needed nobody, to tell me make my mark
I'm experienced man, I can understand
I know how to get along

Wahjahka man, in a any land
Got this name ya, in a me blood now

    Did You know that Cliff and Tosh were members of The Wailers before they went on Their own. Rita Marley was firstly a Background Singer of Jimmy Cliff before She accompanied Bob Marley and She married to Him later

    Eugene Nnaji

    Bob Marley,peter tosh,and Burney only.No Cliff

    alfred benjamin

    @Eugene Nnaji so true, Cliff was a big name when the Wailers were coming up. When Cliff exit Island Records, The Wailers got signed. Rita was a big star before The Wailers, she had her own group. The Wailers backed Cliff on his 1975 album "Brave Warrior."

    There's no Doubts to Say It Is Very But Very Good Reggae Music

  59. Jay Kumar

    always liked this track from jimmy..
    can anyone tell me the origin of the name "Wahjahka"? Thanks!


    There is a native american word that comes close,Spirit of God that means every living thing on earth has a spirit. Plants trees and animals and humans. It learns us to pick only the third fruit in nature, so the first two can stay to reproduce, and respectfull with eerything you use in nature

    Would seem to be a phonetic version of Oaxaca (Mexico)
