Tikya the Blackheart Man, children I say, don't go near him Tikya the Blackheart Man children For even lions fear him (repeat)
Growing in a neighbourhood for such along time That is filled with fear I can't go here, can't go there And I ain't supposed to go anywhere When I ask my Mom if she could let me go out and play She said be careful of the stranger Giving candies to children And then take them away
He lives in the gullies of the city He's the Blackheart Man (The blackheart Man)
Even in the lonely parts of the country He's the Blackheart Man, Blackheart Man Got no friend, no home, no family He's the Blackheart 'Man, The Blackheart Man He is famed to live just like the Gypsy He's the Blackheart 'Man, The Blackheart Man
Growing and learning and gathering, for myself a little more experience jumping over the fence Curiousity has brought me yes it's brought me, a little common-sense Trodding the road of life, I've come to this one conclusion That everything is equal under the sun, all that is createdby JAH mighty hand And he said knock and it shall be opened Seek and Ye shall find that wisdom is found in the simplest of places, In the nick of time, knock and it shall be opened Seek and ye shall find that wisdom is found in the simplest of places, in the nick of time and now I trod the same road of aflictions just like the Blackheart Man, just like the Blackheart Man Getting my share of humiliation just like the Blackheart Man Just like the Blackheart Man You'll find me even in the prison of the dungeons just like the Blackheart Man, just like the the Blackheart Man I even get blamed without a reason just like the Blackheart Man Just like the Blackheart man yau
No cross, no crown, no sorrow, no trial and crosses In-a-I way But the hotter the battle is the sweeter JAH JAH victory Ancient children use to say if you want good Your nose got to run run run How could the world go free, and let JAH bear the cross alone And them that drink of the old wine hath no place for the new For the new and the stones that are head of the corner are the same one that the builders refused Now, it's the Blackheart Man, children Who've become the wonder of the city (rep).
