    [Intro:]
    Well ah Emperor Selassie l
    What would the old-timer say?
    Yow! Nyahbinghi,come
    We teach them how fi pray
    Ay-ay-hay-hey,hey

    [Chorus:]
    Show us the way,let us be sanctified
    (Show us the way)
    Fire blaze,I nah cool nothing,hey
    Teach them to pray,save those who doom to die
    (Teach them to pray)
    The needy shall not always be forgotten,no way!
    l will be hailing King Selassie l
    (Jah!)
    Slew Saul and Goliath inna de battle
    Strength and protection as best,stand up on l and l
    Too much ghetto youth,dey inna trouble

    [Verse 1:]
    Well then
    This is life,live and protect your own
    Could never be right keeping yuh black self down
    (Couldda never!)
    Then ah who ketch fright when dem hear mih song
    Justice and equal rights ah make Babylon frown
    Run go ask them who them are
    Dem ignorant answer show me say dat dem ah Babylon par
    Doh no matter yuh age nah who you are
    {All follies haffi done}
    Great ah David,ha' no greater son

    [Chorus:]
    Show dem to pray,teach them to be sanctified
    (Show them the way)
    Fire blaze,l nah cool down,hey
    Teach them to pray,save those who doom to die
    (Teach them to pray)
    Needy shall not always be forgotten,judgement!
    l will be hailing King Selassie l
    (Jah!)
    Slew Saul and golath inna de battle,hey
    Strength and protection for l and l
    {Babylon,you get burned out to nothing!}

    [Verse 2:]
    Tell dem say )man dey inna yuh pants!}
    And me say {woman inna dey skirt!}
    Righteousness,divine orders run Earth
    {l and l seeing how KIng Selassie l work!}
    Babylon jus' know what it worth
    What ah de result after the effort?
    Show no cult love and dem {done ah dish yuh dirt!}
    Worry nah 'bout dem business, {living in a curse!}
    Frustration take a hold,hey

    [Chorus:]
    (Show them to teach them)
    Me tell yuh say fi show dem to pray,teach them to be sanctified
    Fire blaze,l nah cool down,hey
    Show us the way,save those who doom to die
    Selassie l bu'n dem out tonight!
    (Show us the way)
    Show us the way,let us be sanctified
    (Teach them!)
    Fire blaze,l nah cool nothing,hey
    Teach them to pray,let us be sanctified
    {Rastaman,yuh know we ah go chant!}

    [Verse 3:]
    Well then
    How'd did it all begun?
    Ah jus' through vanity,man no stop shot man
    "Are you a slave?" no, {I am an Ethiopian!}
    Prime Minister tell Elizabeth repatriation
    Babylon,yuh get gun out all by me-one {ra-ka-kang!}
    Then a ghetto youth ah turn strong
    Ah tell yuh say...
    Couldn't be mih king
    Remember when Selassie l shot dah boy dey with de sling
    {De people dem confuse},still suffering
    From unu take dem from Africa,unu hide dem king
    Unu give dem {images fi praise and ting}
    Then Babylon dem bring down colonialism
    {And then de government} bring down imperialism
    And then de politics fliction,dat jump in
    Then the masses of the nation,they began killing
    Every flesh shall perish and you nah wah hail Selassie l,The King

    [Chorus:]
    Well show us the way,let us be sanctified
    (Show us the way)
    Fire blaze,l'm nah cool nothing,no way
    Teach them to pray,save those who doom to die
    (Teach them to pray)
    The needy shall not always be forgotten,yaaay!
    Show us the way,let us be sanctified
    (Show us the way)
    Fire blaze,l'm nah cool nothing,no way
    Teach them to pray,save those who doom to die
    (Teach them to pray)
    Babylon,yuh get bu'n out to nothing

    [Outro:]
    Then me ask them say
    What do the old-timer say?
    Haile Selassie l say fi kneel and pray--pray-ay-ay!
    One to the Ancient say
    No segregation...Zion away (away,away,away)
