Them want I
Them want I
Be com'a them funeral 
Them claim say
Them claim say
Them are the general 

Them want I
Them want I
Be com'a them funeral 
Them claim say
Them claim say
Them are the general 

What a big disgrace 
The way you rob up the place 
Rob everthing you can find 
Yes you did 
And you'll even rob from the blind 

You must see want I fe 
Com'a com'a funeral 
And I no, no go 
No one burial 
Yet you want I 
Com'a com'a funeral 
Make your friend come claim say
You are the genie

Now we know the truth 
Yes we do 
Find you wearing the boot 
Of taking people's business on your head, yeah 
So might as well you be dead 

Them want I
Them want I
Be com'a them funeral 
Them claim say
Them claim say
Them are the general 

Them want I
Them want I
Be com'a them funeral 
Them claim say
Them claim say
Them are the general 

Let the dead bury the dead now 
And who is to be fed, be fed 
I ain't got no time to waste on you, no, no 
I'm a livin' man, I got work to do  
Right now 

This man and that man 
Yes they are the same man 
You taught us this just as well 
That the rich man heaven is the poor man's hell 
You must see want I fe com'a com'a funeral 
Natty no go, no one burial 
Yet you want I 
Com'a com'a funeral
Make your friend come claim say 
You are the genie

Them want I
Them want I
Be com'a them funeral 
Them claim say
Them claim say
