En regardant le film de Florence Foresti, j'ai redécouvert cette jolie petite chanson que j'aimais écouter, enfant, et dont j'ignorais évidemment les paroles. Après quelques recherches, je constate que les traductions sont multiples:  entre les allusions à la drogue (Pass the Dutchie « le join »), la malnutrition (How does it feel when you've got no food ? ») et l'amour de la musique (« Music happen to be the food of love »), on pourrait... retenir un peu des trois.

 This generation

Rules the nation

With version

 

Music happen to be the food of love

Sounds to really make you rub and scrub

 

I say: Pass the Dutchie on the left hand side

Pass the Dutchie on the left hand side

It a gonna burn, give me music make me jump and prance

It a go done, give me the music make me rock in the dance

 

It was a cool and lovely breezy afternoon

(How does it feel when you've got no food ?)

You could feel it 'cause it was the month of June

(How does it feel when you've got no food ?)

So I left my gate and went out for a walk

(How does it feel when you've got no food ?)

As I pass the dreadlocks' camp I heard them say

(How does it feel when you've got no food ?)

 

Pass the Dutchie on the left hand side

Pass the Dutchie on the left hand side

It a gonna burn, give me music make me jump and prance

It a go done, give me the music make me rock in the dance

 

So I stopped to find out what was going on.

(How does it feel when you've got no food ?)

'Cause the spirit of Jah, you know he leads you on

(How does it feel when you've got no food ?)

There was a ring of dreads and a session was there in swing

(How does it feel when you've got no food ?)

You could feel the chill as I seen and heard them say

(How does it feel when you've got no food ?)

 

Pass the Dutchie on the left hand side

Pass the Dutchie on the left hand side

It a gonna burn, give me music make me jump and prance

It a go done, give me the music make me rock in the dance

 

'Cause me say listen to the drummer, me say listen to the bass

Give me little music make me wind up me waist

Me say listen to the drummer, me say listen to the bass

Give me little music make me wind up me waist, I say

 

Pass the Dutchie on the left hand side

Pass the Dutchie on the left hand side

It a gonna burn, give me music make me jump and prance

It a go done, give me the music make me rock in the dance

 

You play it on the radio, a so me say, we a go hear it on the stereo

A so me know you a go play it on the disco

A so me say we a go hear it on the stereo

 

Pass the Dutchie on the left hand side

Pass the Dutchie on the left hand side

It a gonna burn, give me music make me jump and prance

It a go done, give me the music make me rock in the dance

I say east, say west, say north and south (on the left hand side)

This is gonna make us jump and shout (on the left hand side)
