about

This is an Otura Mun rework of the 2017 Dancehall smash hit the Humbug Riddim. Originally produced by ZJ's Chrome, this version get's reworked and revoiced by Mun to fit the vibe of the original juggling while cranking up the BPM's juuuuust a bit. Drop it right after that Mavado, then PULL IT UP!!!

lyrics

Written and performed by Otura Mun for Discos Ifá (ASCAP)

Intro...
Prayer to Yemayá (Traditional)

Prayer to Olokun:
May May May Iré! 4X

Chorus:
Drop it to the sound...
Umbo, Come Down! Come Down, Come Down!
Only your love can turn mi round, Bring it to the ground!
Umbo, Come Down! Come Down, Come Down!
Night is gone but the day seems far away, I feel you all around
Way up! Come Down!

Verse 1:
Like a king to a throne
Every thought can be known
This life is my own, this ship can be flown

And this space can be known
In this space you alone
You and me together this love can be grown, long time mi ah know

These seeds we have sewn
Black seeds we have thrown
This knife can be honed, this day will be known

That crown is your own
In your heart you have known
Feel you all around when the waves come crashing down
Shake it to the sound

Chorus:
Umbo, Come Down! Come Down, Come Down!
Only your love can turn mi round, Bring it to the ground!
Umbo, Come Down! Come Down, Come Down!
Night is gone but the day seems far away, I feel you all around
Umbo, Come Down! Come Down, Come Down!
Only your love can turn mi round, Bring it back around!

Verse 2:

You are silver and gold
What a sight to behold
Press tight to me now this night can be cold

From the stars we were born
Like stars we have grown
Listen to me well, this prayer can be shown, this wish will be known

That dream is your own
These dreams we've been shown
One touch from your hand this house will be known.

That place is your home
From the start you have known
Feel you all around when the waves come crashing down
Drop it to the sound

Chorus:

Umbo, Come Down! Come Down, Come Down!
Only your love can turn mi round, Bring it back around!
Umbo, Come Down! Come Down, Come Down!
Night is gone but the day seems far away, I feel you all around
Umbo, Come Down! Come Down, Come Down!
Only your love can turn mi round, Bring it to the ground
Way up! Come Down!

Bridge:

May May May Iré! 8X
Iyá wo lo mi o! 8X!
