Jah! Rastafarianism 
Yes I, Ras Trent 
Ba-da ding-ding-ding-ding whoa! 
Who dem? 
You no want test me champion sound 

Oh fire pon Babylon 
And fire pon a batty boy 
Rude boy living in the shanty dorms 
My roommate Nick is an ignorant ball head! 

Now chant down Babylon 
Midterm essays 
Then puff from de chalice 
I fi make from a Sprite can 

Last week I read a book 
About Selassie I 
Then told my bomboclat parents 
I was switching religions 

Excuse I! 
Oh hot stepper, you do so many dutty crimes 
Nyabinghi! 
And plus you're fully skylarking all the time 

Unu look ya now! 

Have you ever noticed 
How ball-heads suck? 
Ba-da-da ding-ding-ding-ding 
Dong-dang ding-dong duck! 

Excuse I for my skanking 
Give thanks and praise 
Me toil part-time 
At jah Cold Stone Creamery 

In a dub style! 
Roller skates...a DVD of Cool Runnings, Murder, She Wrote 
Yagga-yagga-yagga yowwww! 

Are you there Jah? It's me, Ras Trent 
Are you there Jah? It's me, Ras Trent 

Are you there Jah? It's me, Ras Trent 
Please guide me pon your bike path of righteousness 

Oh stannaho, stannaho, stannaho, stannahoy Jaaaah! 
Fussing and fighting and Zion and Roots 
Red Stripe, Shabba, Ragamuffin and culture 
Me night nurse never want to plant de corn 
Skiddily-whoa 
Diddily, skiddily diddily diddily
