I was listening to Bob Marley one day and it hit me. The reason why people of all cultures love this song so much is that Bob Marley is giving us all the highest affirmation possible by calling us all god-men 50 times when he says "We Jah-men!". Jesus made a similar reference that was considered blasphemous in John 10:34 when he said "Is it not written in your law, I said ye are gods"(Referencing Psalms 82:6). I love the play on words. Read the lyrics of the song; It's definitely not a party song, though most people assume it is. It's more of a prayer or affirmation. You won't find Lil' John & The Eastside Boyz making tracks like this though they have the look down (see Lil Bob).

Ooh, yeah! All right!
We're jammin':
I wanna jam it wid you.
We're jammin', jammin',
And I hope you like jammin', too.

Ain't no rules, ain't no vow, we can do it anyhow:
Are you now see you through,
'Cos everyday we pay the price
with a little sacrifice,
Jammin' till the jam is through.

We're jammin' -
To think that jammin' was a thing of the past;
We're jammin',
And I hope this jam is gonna last.

No bullet can stop us now, we
neither beg nor we won't bow;
Neither can be bought nor sold.
We all defend the right; Jah -
Jah children must unite:
Your life is worth much more than gold.

We're jammin' (jammin', jammin', jammin')
And we're jammin' in the name of the Lord;
We're jammin' (jammin', jammin', jammin'),
We're jammin' right straight from Yah.

Yeh! Holy Mount Zion;
Holy Mount Zion:
Jah sitteth in Mount Zion
And rules all creation.

Yeah, we're - we're jammin' (wotcha-wa),
Wotcha-wa-wa-wa, we're jammin' (wotcha-wa),
See, I wanna jam it wid you
We're jammin' (jammin', jammin', jammin')
I'm jammed: I hope you're jammin', too.

Jam's about my pride and truth I cannot hide
To keep you satisfied.
True love that now exist is the love I can't resist,
So jam by my side.

We're Jammin' (jammin', jammin',
jammin'), yeah-eah-eah!
I wanna jam it wid you.
We're jammin', we're jammin', we're
jammin', we're jammin',
We're jammin', we're jammin', we're
jammin', we're jammin';
Hope you like jammin', too.
We're jammin', we're jammin' (jammin'),
We're jammin', we're jammin' (jammin').
I wanna (I wanna jam it wid you) - I wanna -
I wanna jam wid you now.
Jammin', jammin' (hope you like jammin' too).
Eh-eh! I hope you like jammin', I
hope you like jammin',
'Cause (I wanna jam it wid you). I wanna ... wid you.
I like - I hope you - I hope you like jammin', too.
I wanna jam it;
I wanna jam it.
