Liberals dream of equal rights, 
Conservatives live in a world gone by, 
Socialists preach of a promised land, 
But old uncle son, was
Preacher's only son
Wise man's only tie
Scorned by anyone
With an evil eye
remember when I held you
By the hand preacher man read the scriptures
Putting words in you mouth

Maybe what the preacher man said was not something that
for life
A preacher's son, first one on the run
I'm grateful that I haven't been shot
Stopped by the cops and they didn't find a glock
W-Y-C-L-E-F,
window
Peeping through the blinds
Oh honey come here running
Don't you take your time

Well I ain't no preacher man
I'm no preacher's son
But I'll be
I'm Buju Banton with the preacher's son

Who gave the orders
For them to go, alright
Who gave the orders
Martin was shut down, ah, alright
Who
Made his way out from the low lands
The son of a preacher man
Then he seemed to lose direction
On his way to the promised land, no no

It
a little early one night
And there she was kissin on another man
Now I know what mama meant when she took me by the hand

She said, take time to know her
a little early one night
And there she was kissin on another man
Now I know what mama meant when she took me by the hand

She said, take time to know her
a little early one night
And there she was kissin on another man
Now I know what mama meant when she took me by the hand

She said, take time to know her
The single son she had last night is buried under her

They say that the war is done
Where are you now, my son?

An old man with unsteady gait and beard
Up in the street
 To a precise beat
 Painting shadows on the wall
 Well, we cut cars and fly by bars
 All for one and one for all
 Like
to 60, sometimes.
I remember putting down the back seat
And lying in the hatchback.
Looking at the sky watching trees go by.
I was the son
a little early one night
And there she was kissin on another man
Now I know what mama meant when she took me by the hand

She said, take time to know her
lawd honey don't give your money to that lyin, cheatin man..


Cold Baloney, and I'm home by myself.
Well I'm five years old, and it sure is cold
Adversary, amigo
Preacher man, pimp hand
Both folding their c-notes
A black fist clutching deliverance for the people
Young hand reach out, strong hand
of street folk
And that?s where I?m coming from people
High post, low key
Eighth, o-z, and kilo
Law man, dope man
Adversary, amigo
Preacher man, pimp hand
a little early one night
And there she was kissin on another man
Now I know what mama meant when she took me by the hand

She said, take time to know her
You know, this is James Brown
I'm such a lover of people
Because people did so much for me
I'm a lover of all humanity, all of man kind
And i
a little early one night
And there she was kissin on another man
Now I know what mama meant when she took me by the hand

She said, take time to know her
is a mess, but you're blessed
With a father, son, spirit and the holy ghost
But my whole neigborhood is comatose
Lookin' for survival
The devil
to the Greyhound Bus
We'll be standin' in front of that preacher
By the time they're lookin' for us

And they'll be draggin' the river
But they ain't gonna find
a little somethin'
But fuck the game if it ain't saying nothin' 

If man is the father the son is the center of the earth 
In the middle of the universe
you all a lot

They put old John in the electric chair they shaved his ankles and his head
The preacher said son you got something to say in a minute
