Babylon yuh betta turn wi loose 
God knows, turn wi loose now 
Sing along, a little song 
An guh a ting like 

[Chorus]
Freedom, for some I am bawling 
Babylon yuh pull di chain from mi han 
Mi still under yuh Babylon system 
God knows, Freedom for some I am bawling 
Oh Selassie I, rastafarian calling 
Beenie Man a sing a ting 

From the day mi know miself, man a born of mammal 
Although yuh smart, dem sen yuh guh a Jamal 
Teach yuh how fi spell gun and nuclear weapon 
How fi spell politics and greet politician 
Nowhere in the Bible where those words come from 
Dem restore wi name an class us as African 
When con is a short name for condemnation 
I nuh know bout di I, I a true Ethiopian 
Christopher Columbus, bout him discover island 
Discover what when him come spot the Indian 
An a him tun roun an all enslave black man 
Mussolini an him friend dem tief the gold and all di diamond 
Who steal wi name, check the queen wheh deh a England 
A she build the pope and introduce vatican 
From Constantine, Julius and all Pope John 
Now dem reach Paul I wonder if dem want to expand 
Queen Elie-zabeth, all she is a next one 
Well mi naah guh too stress me just a look a explanation 
This is the word from the black man 

[Chorus]

I say man a true needle kill the dragon and eagle 
Murda di pope wheh a defender of evil 
Long time dem bwoi deh a pressure black people 
Have wi like a slave under chain and shackle 
Now wi buss out inna muscle 
Well a long time mi deh warn dem fi look to the east 
Warning to the dragon and the mark of the beast 
Mek dem a galong suh like dem caan tun discease 
Call on the Selassie wheh a blow all di breeze 
Weeping wailing, nashing of teeth 
God judgment, is only certain man see it 
Pope Constantine inna him grave an all a grief 
This is no Pelican brief 
My Speech 

[Chorus] 

People, well unnuh clean out yuh ears an listen to mi lyrics 
Yuh nuh hear bout di Lieshah di ball head prophet 
Word of Elijah, di man used to spread it 
John di most righteous man yet still wasn't a prophet 
He could not be God, dem haffi tun him inna baptist 
This is the meaning of ma lyrics in these times 
Mandela come an try it 
Well him never reach far, prison wall di man face it 
Malcolm X try an a copper shot end it 
All try and dem beat it an kill it 
Marcus Garvey try, a fi rice dem sell it 
Only we inna di music business can stop it 
Follow Beenie Man and all live it 

[Chorus]
