Intro: Go away man cause we no love pagan Remember that, Blessed. When ever you take part in the up-rising of the black child When them see we face them a run come smile. Well red, soil them get soil, soil them get soil.
Chorus: As Emperor Selassie I was in the beginning Is now and ever shall be Be glorious in your powers while I sing To his own Devine Majesty. As Jah was in the beginning Is now and ever shall be Be glorious inna your powers while I sing To the whole ghetto community.
Verse 1: Nuff a them a look fi Selassie Yet them greedy fi wealth Make me tell you You can not be looking out of yourself How close are you to Zion ? Inna Emmanuel Tabernacle have you ever knelt ? Confuse not your heart Power from the source Black child of the Zion is of the eastern coast. What life has taught me is to love and not to boast Nuh teach the youth them bout no damn holy ghost
Verse 2: Me haffi holla out I and I and I are the Royal son of King David So Babylon why you try to deny The ghetto youths loyal knowledge ? Red, gold and green with the black five point star Banners shall flow inna every village Me tell them sey repatriation no deh far Get yourself ready and come we go pon Babylon bridge When money caan do it and there is no food to eat For me nah go tell the street how them a bawl and a weep A them a call fi peace but grap and a run with all of the wheat But Bob hill them soon caan see it
Verse 3: We tell them say Everything that provide Come we chant all Nyahbinghi inside the royal palace Ghetto youth just be wise how unnuh haffi rise Come make we open up we eyes A tell you sey, me haffi chant down river Nile Babylon me just come and career get soil Yow, I want to live it up and trod down Nine Mile Remember that the city, yow, haven't a living reptile
