I was walkin' down the street Concentratin' on truckin' right I heard a dark voice beside of me And I looked 'round in a state of fright I saw four faces, one mad, a brother from the gutter They looked me up and down a bit and turned to each other
I say, I don't like cricket, oh no, I love it I don't like cricket, oh no, I love it Don't you walk through my words You got to show some respect Don't you walk through my words Cause you ain't heard me out yet
Well, he looked down on my silver chain He said: I'll give you one dollar I said: You've got to be jokin, man It was a present from me mother He said: I like it, I want it, I'll take it off your hands And you'll be sorry you crossed me You better understand that you're alone (a long way from home)
And I say, I don't like reggae, oh no, I love it I don't like reggae, I love it Don't you cramp me style Don't you queer me pitch Don't you walk through my words Cause you ain't heard me out yet
I hurried back to the swimming pool, sinkin' pina colada I heard a dark voice beside me say Would you like something harder? She said: I've got it, you want it My harvest is the best, and if you try it You'll like it and wallow in a dreadlock holiday
And I say, don't like Jamaica, oh no, I love her Don't like Jamaica, oh no, I love her Don't you walk through my words You got to show some respect Don't you walk through my words Cause you ain't heard me out yet I don't like cricket, oh no, I love it (Dreadlock holiday) I don't like Reggae, oh no, I love it (Dreadlock holiday) I don't like Jamaica, oh no, I love her (Dreadlock holiday)

Tom from Dunedin, New ZealandAnyone notice an odd similarity to Gentle Giant's 1976 'Give It Back'? -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVsmECYtO0Q
Michael from Santa Cruz, CaThis song and "Life is a minestrone" were the ones that really got me into 10cc.Runner-up would be their mini-epic "The benefit".Great stuff.
Mark from Adelaide, AustraliaLuke from Manchester...10 cc were a great band, but this is no place to trade insults, by reading your comments I ask who is the deluded one. Just because you know this song intimately and the band your comments remind me of the stereotypical bigot.
Ken from Gibraltar, GibraltarThis is surely their best song and still heard and loved today as it was way back in 1978.
Glenn from Auckland, New ZealandI remember that this song was No. 1 for quite a few weeks in late 78. Sadly 10cc were coming to an end. Two years earlier Kevin Godley and Lol Creme had left 10CC and they were never quite the same, even though they had a couple of more hits afterwards.
Rob from Detroit, MiWow, Luke! How do you really feel?
Luke from Manchester, EnglandYou stupid stupid American. You didn't listen to the song, you took what little you remembered and thought that was the actual structure... Poor deluded dickhead... This is an amazing song, 10cc are an amazing band, get educated.
Nakib from Dhaka, OtherThe movie 'Snatch' really brought this song to me,great song,great lyrics.
Jim from Stonerville, Cahave this song on the snatch soundtrack. coolest song on the album. i don't like reggae. i love it...
Guy from Wellington, New ZealandThis is a very cool 10CC song and if you get the chance to see the video they made it lends delightful humour to the rocking reggae tune. While they play the story for all its amusing content I'm sure the actual events for whoever suffered them must have been a hell of a lot more frightening.
Derek from Cambridge, New ZealandA very depressing song, it shows the worst sid eof Jamaica, in the lyrics of the song.
Jay from Geneva, CheezlandIt's featured on the brilliant film "Snatch". And as any song of this OST, it fits like a glove to the film.
Rich from Elkins, WvMy favorite song by 10cc is "I'm Not in Love" ... I don't think I've heard this one.
