Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sir So that every mouth can be fed Poor me, the Israelite, ah. Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sir So that every mouth can be fed Poor me, the Israelite. My wife and my kids, they pack up and leave me Darling, she said, I was yours to be seen Poor, poor me, the Israelite. Shirt them a-tear up, trousers are go I don't want to end up like Bonnie and Clyde Poor me, the Israelite.

Produced by Leslie Kong. Album The Israelites. The Israelites Lyrics. Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sir So that every mouth can be fed Poor, poor me, Israelites. Aah. My wife and my kids, they packed up and leave me Darling, she said, "I was yours to be seen" Poor me, the Israelite. Actually performed by Desmond Decker and the Aces, it was the first Reggae No. 1 in the UK and the second to make the top 10 in the US. Musically, Israelites is all about Jamacian syncopation. A guitar and organ provide opening chords and counterpoints, but it’s the Jamaican reggae rhythm expressed by that jittery drummer, combined with those terrific vocals that defines the song.

Album: The Best Of Desmond Dekker (1969). Charted: 1 9. Get the Sheet Music License This Song. Dekker (born Desmond Dacres) was raised in Kingston, Jamaica and trained as a welder before singing. He formed the Aces and teamed up with hit producer Leslie Kong in 1966 (with whom he worked until Kong's death in 1971). He has over 20 Jamaican hits and 2 other UK Top 10 hits: "It Mek" and "You Can Get It If You Really Want. He enjoyed a revival in the UK in the early 1980s thanks to the two-tone movement. I was listening to . radio in 1969 and the song The Israelites was playing when I opened my draft notice from good ole Uncle Sam. Every time I hear it the hairs on the back of my neck stand up and I get the chills. That being said, I love the song. Elmer from Westville, OkI first heard "The Israelites" on AFVN radio when I was in the . Army in Vietnam (BienHoa) in 1969.

Nineteen seminal songs, all hits, but Dekker released so many exceptional singles, this album still only scratches the surface and omits a host of crucial cuts. The tracks could all use a good remastering as well, and in places the sound quality is not pristine (an unfortunate fact of life with many Jamaican recordings), still surely Trojan had a less crackly copy of "Pretty Africa. Finally, the sleeve notes are minimal and particularly unhelpful

Israelites is a song written by Desmond Dekker and Leslie Kong that became a hit for Dekker’s group, Desmond Dekker & The Aces. Although few could understand all the lyrics, the single was the first UK reggae number one and among the first to reach the US top ten. It combined the Rastafarian religion with rude boy concerns, to make what has been described as a timeless masterpiece that knew no boundaries. The disc was released in the UK in March 1969 and was number one for one week, selling over 250,000 copies. A global million sales was reported in June 1969
