I was listening to Bob Marley,
Smoking it,
Preaching it,
Telling me to be happy
He said
Don’t worry about those girls
Who always seem to whisper ‘bout me
Like they know my life story

This little bird just got her wings
While I’m taking off
Be singing bout,
All my blessings
So this is my message to you
Might not be the sweetest
But at least I know that
My melodies true

So I’ll just be-

Jamming with Bob Marley
Just singing with the rising sun
I won’t run I’ll fly
Don’t worry bout me
Got a little feeling
I’ll be alright

Jamming with Bob Marley
Dead and gone, hardly
Jamming with Bob Marley
Just jamming with Bob Marley

Jamming with Bob Marley
Dead and gone, hardly
Jamming with Bob Marley
Just jamming with Bob Marley!

When I saw Bob Marley in your song's title, I was intrigued:) No critcisms here---I don't know much about songwriting, but this seems like a cool song. I do know that it would work also as a poem.

Beautiful!  I love how you incorporate Bob Marley into your song and use him to send a message.  I really have no criticism; this is one of the best songs I've seen here on TI!  It looks like it was written by a professional.
