Downpresser man 
Where you gonna run to 
Downpresser man 
Where you gonna run to 
Downpresser man 
Where you gonna run to 
All along that day

You gonna run to the sea 
But the sea will be boiling 
When you run to the sea 
The sea will be boiling
When you run to the sea 
The sea will be boiling
All along that day 

You gonna run to the rocks 
The rocks will be melting 
When you run to the rocks 
The rocks will be melting
When you run to the rocks 
The rocks will be melting
I said, all along that day 

So I said 
Downpresser man 
Where you gonna run to 
I said, downpresser man 
Where you gonna run to 
I said, downpresser man 
Where you gonna run to 
All along that day

You drink your big champagne and laugh
You drink your big champagne and laugh
You drink your big champagne and laugh
All along that day 

I wouldn't like to be a flea 
Under your collar man 
I wouldn't like to be a flea 
Under your collar man 
I wouldn't like to be a flea 
Under your collar man 
All along that day 

You can run but you can't hide
You can run but you can't hide
You can run but you can't hide
Telling you all along that day 

You gonna run to the law 
Beggin' to hide you 
You gonna run to the law 
Beggin' to hide you 
You gonna run to jah 
Beggin' to hide you 
All, all along that day 

And I said downpresser man 
Where you gonna run to 
Where you gonna run to downpresser man 
Where you gonna run to 
I said all along 
Along that day (downpresser man)
Downpresser man, downpresser man
Downpresser man, downpresser man

Wait, downpresser man 
Where you gonna run to 
Downpresser man 
I don't know where you gonna run to 
All along that day 

Downpresser man 
You can't run, you can't bribe jah-jah 
Can't call him in a bar 
Fe can drink some 
Devil soup 
Can't bribe him to run a car now 
Can't test him faith 
Downpresser man, don't, downpresser man
I said, downpresser man, don't run, downpresser man
Downpresser man, where you gonna run to 

Downpresser man 
You can't bribe no one 
Them no want no money 
Them run'f money 
That money gets funny
