The song was a cover version of the song "Pass the Kouchie" by The Mighty Diamonds, which deals with the recreational use of cannabis, "kouchie" being slang for a cannabis pipe. For the cover version, the song's title was bowdlerized to "Pass the Dutchie" and all obvious drug references were removed from the lyrics; e. g., when the original croons "How does it feel when you got no herb?", the cover version refers to "food" instead.

Musical Youth Pass The Dutchie on stage in 1983

LYRICS :

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 good 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 good 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 good 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 good 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 good 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)
