In the middle of the song, he says the word "boring."

 

Why did he do that?  :)

 

Thanks.

My dad use to play this song to me all the time. Peter Tosh was responsible for teaching Marley how to play the guitar! Absolute legend. I dont think he said boring. Its tricky though!

Here's the verse:

 

I'm like a stepping, walking, cutting, flicking
Jumping, chopping, walking
I'm dangerous, I'm dangerous
I'm like a stepping, jumping, flicking, bumping, boring
I'm dangerous, I'm dangerous
 
 
 
Here's the entire song:
 
 
Here is the You Tube clip, with the words from a few seconds back:
 
Hope these are helpful.

aha! I see! 

 

I think it that stanza in particular,  hes using the word 'Boor' (n) 

  1. a churlish, rude, or unmannerly person. 

 rather than "bore' (adj) 

 

Jamaica's always been heavily influence by the British, so I'm almost positive hes using the word "boor" , english slang like. So hes saying hes an "unrefined rude bwoy" lol
