[Repeat: x2]
Dem try fi hold hold wha dem can't conquer  Rastaman no mix up with no vagavanga 

They want to condemn the innocent 
For crimes which we did not committ 
They want to get good people mix up
In their bag of tricks 

[Repeat: x2]
But water and oil can't mix
 Water and oil don't mix

[Repeat: x2]
Say dem try fi hold hold wha dem can't conquer  Rastaman no mix up with no vagavanga 

Hear this! naah go like the son if you no like the father 
True we manifest under the same order 
Cock your ears and listen me want you hear ya part ya
But first come in papa Ziggy as the eldest brother
Yes I hear the lies they've told
Dem says Rasta did this and this
What is the politican role
Is it to create conflicts

[Repeat: x2]
But water and oil can't mix
 Water and oil don't mix

Jah who I praise break your silence 
Now that the wicked is accusing  Attacking for no reason 
All we did was pray for them
Now the way things happen fast
Some things me naah go member 
But the day did cool cool and collective lya
Nest thing me know some unwanted visitors
Some devil worshiping Rasta hating cold-blooded murdera  Never get get wha dem expect dem expect lamb fi slaughter 

Hear this! This is Ragamuffin and him hitting harder
We get up from weh we sit down to a strategic corner
Me and the bwoy dem eye mek four me mek a nervous swallow
Prip around from left to right me look pon all me brother 
Hold me head to the sky and make a final prayer
Zoom! zoom! And everything take cover 
Look how fast lightning rod back out in all a dem face
Quick! Me back out me no member wha it name
Them never know the youth them would not lose them faith  Through the grace of the Father everything set straight  Water and oil can't mix
