Greetings, is like the first good mankind 
On hurt hurt ever pray to is the sun, woh, deh, deh 
Den di evil priest, come wid a god name atom 
Atom mean one god and one god only 
Rastaman discover that is three in one one in three 
Blessed be on to thee only trinity for iver, for iver 
And iver more, woh, deh, deh, lord, woh 

We, we are Africans 
We, free Africans

[Verse 1]
Down the jungle, the quite jungle 
The lion sleeps tonight 
Farracan led the million man march 
Di lion dance tonight 
Africans in America 
Dem cal them Afro-American 
But the inhabitants them fi understand 
Sey America a capture land 
Europe land is fi European 
And is there white man belong 
Now the Indians who own di land 
Naw lives on reservation, but! 


Verse 2: 
O.J. Simpson one ting mi deh warn yuh 
Sey fi stick to yuh owner kind, woh 
Yuh switch from yuh kind 
And yuh nearly serve time 
Could a mix up in a babylon 
If yuh guilty you know the story 
But yuh bless by selassi hands 
Now yuh bust di case 
Put a smile pon yuh face 
And join repatriation 
Rodney King, look how bad dem beat him 
Pon public television 
Full time we get it straight 
Dem nuh like we race 
Mek we pack up and leave dis place, cause 


[Verse 3] 
Marcus Garvey and Malcolm and Martin Luther 
A true black man, woh 
Anybol, and Selassie I Mandela dem a Ethiopion 
Down di jungle di quite jungle 
Di lion sleep tonight, woh 
Farracon led the million man march 
Di lion dance tonight
