Yes, me friend, me friend 
Dem set me free again 
Yes, me friend, me friend 
Me deh 'pon street again 

The bars could not hold me
 Force could not control me now
They try to keep me down
But God put me around. Yeah! 

Yes, I've been accused  Wrongly abused now
But through the powers of the Most High 
They've got to turn me loose 

Don't try to cold me up on this bridge, now
I've got to reach Mount Zion
The highest region
If you a bull-bucka
Let me tell you that
I'm a duppy conqueror, conqueror 

Yes, me friend, me good friend 
Dem set me free again, mm
Yes, me friend 
Dem turn me loose again 

Don't try to cold me up on this bridge, now
I've got to reach Mount Zion
The highest region
If you a bull-bucka
Let me tell you
I'm a duppy conqueror, conqueror 

Yes, me friend, me friend, me friend, me friend 
We deh a street again
Yes, me friend, me friend, me friend 
Dem set me free again 

Don't try to show off
Fi make you friend dem laugh, what a la-la!
For i will cut you off
And i will take the last straw 

I'm crying, yes me friend 
We deh a street again
Yes me friend, me friend, me friend 
Dem set me free again 

The bars could not hold me
 Force could not control me now
