Please Mr. Minister, a word with you
Only take a minute, sir, so don't you screw

You no fight 'gainst the rum head
You no fight 'gainst the wine head
You no fight 'gainst the cigarette smoking

Yet you know, yet you know
These things give cancer
Yet you know, yet you know
These things give cancer

Rastaman know the truth
So you can't fool the youth
Rastaman know the truth
So you can't fool the youth

What was hidden from the wise and prudent
Shall reveal to the babe and suckling
What was hidden from the wise and prudent
Shall reveal to the babe and suckling

Tell me why do you fight against the collie man?
Tell me why do you fight against the collie man?

Yet you know, yet you know
It's the healing of the nation
Yet you know, yet you know
It's the healing of the nation

Tell me why do you fight against the collie man?
Tell me why do you fight against the collie man?

Yet you know, yet you know
It's the healing of the nation
Yet you know, yet you know
It's the healing of the nation, you know

Too much partialism inna dis business y'all
God knows all of these things give cancer
?

Liar man, doctor man, Indian chief
Babylon Kingdom know the truth
Liar man, doctor man, Indian chief

Yet them know, yet them know
It's the healing of the nation
Yet them know, yet them know
They know it's the truth

Tell me why do you fight against the collie man
Tell me why do you fight against the collie man

Yet you know, yet you know
It's the healing of the nation
Yet them know, yet them know
It's the curing of cancer, asthma, razman

Rastaman know the truth
So you can't fool the youth
Natty dreadlocks know it's the truth
So you can't fool the youth

Yet them know, yet them know
It's the healing of the nation
Yet them know, yet them know
These things give asthma, razma, chrasma

Natty dreadlocks know, natty dreadlocks know
Natty dreadlocks know, natty dreadlocks know
Knowing the truth, the truth that collie will cure cancer, yeah
Natty dreadlocks, natty dreadlocks knowing the truth
Babylon too much partialism
