Did you know you can't go ah Zion and ah wear jerry curls
Can't tell the boys from the girls
“Zion” stands for a Utopian place of unity, peace and freedom, and the place Jah has promised to followers of the Rastafarian religion who rejected Western Society as opposed to “Babylon”, the oppressing and exploiting system of the western world and a place of evil filled with greed and materialism.
Also one can’t go to Zion wearing Jerry Curls due to the fact that it is a sign of materialism and lost of identity.
