Yes I! yes mon! 
A mi mon 
It's just like di four elements of life yuh know 
Earth wind water and fire and none caan work widout di other yuh know 
But yuh see some man seh dat dem fi run di business 
A Wha a gwaan mon? Yo! 
Dem a talk bout more fire, mi a talk bout more prayer 
We pray for water mek it wash down bag-a-walla 
Dem a talk bout more fire, we a talk bout more prayer 
We this yah tune dat ago mek some DJ talk some more But Wha! 

Heights of great men reach and kept 
Were not attained by sudden flight 
Gee while their companions slept 
Very ackwardtile in through the night 
Heights of great men reach and kept 
Were not attained by sudden flight 
Gee while their companions slept 
Very ackwardtile in through the night 

Cool, a who dem seh dem a fight deh, a who dem seh dem go light 
Selassie overthroned him never tek nobody's stripe 
A who dem a seh man nasty?? and dem nuh smell so right 
A 'nough a dem deh dutty dread nuh bath under pipe 
Mi see seh dat look envious mi know it obvious 
And if mi never war wid him I know him wouldn't buss 
Yuh should have thanked mi first, I am da genius 
Like how yuh dissed though dat a small exodus 
Cool! Mi check mi hear how yuh waan bun Bill Clinton 
Mi use fi hear how yuh waan bun all maamaman 
Mi use fi hear how yuh waan bun all lesbian 
So tell mi how di hell yuh go sign to Def Jam when!

Heights of great men reach and kept 
Were not attained by sudden flight 
Gee while their companions slept 
Very ackwardtile in through the night 
Heights of great men reach and kept 
Were not attained by sudden flight 
Gee while their companions slept 
Very ackwardtile in through the night 

Cool mi go call him mi go tek it pon a level 
Hoped yuh were di first Selassie seh dem a di devel 
Now I mek some DJ get uncomfortable 
Well I am di rain fi mek all fire fuzzle 
Well mi haffi wonder if a dem seh dem come a sizzle 
Yuh dead in New York so how dead man fi risin??? 
Well we kill people dem dead and forgotten 
Wait this yah dupyman come fi 'cause trouble 
But hear mi sing

Heights of great men reach and kept 
Were not attained by sudden flight 
Gee while their companions slept 
Very ackwardtile in through the night 
Heights of great men reach and kept 
Were not attained by sudden flight 
Gee while their companions slept 
Very ackwardtile in through the night 

But a talk bout more fire, mi a give dem more prayer 
Mi pray fi rain and mek it wash down bag-a-walla 
Dem a talk bout more fire, mi a give dem more fire 
Well this a tune dat ago mek some DJ talk some more 
So all di war yuh see dem a war 
And all di fuss yuh see dem a throw 
Dem caan get mi out! 
So all di fight yuh see dem a fight 
And all di buss dem wan fi buss 
Dem caan get mi out! 
All di fuss yuh see dem a fuss 
All di war yuh see dem a throw 
Dem caan get mi out! 
Well rastaman deh yah know nuh play nuh tic tac toe 
Dem can! get Beenie out and mi seh 

[Chorus]
