All my days!
Seem like they have been wasted, eh? (Uh huh)
Bo'y'know
Just goes out to show
Till I'm laid to rest, yes
Always be depressed
There's no life in the West uh
I know the East is the best
All di propaganda dem spread
Tongues will haffi confess

Oh I'm in bondage
Living is a mess
An I've got to rise up
Alleviate the stress
No longer will I
Expose my weakness
He who seeks knowledge
Begins with humbleness
Work 7 to 7
Yet me still penniless
For di food pon me table
Massa God bless
'Oller fi di needy
An shelterless
Ethopia awaits
All prince and princess-uh

Till I'm laid to rest, yes
Always be depressed
There's no life in the West uh
I know the East is the best, yes
Propaganda dem spread
Tongues will haffi confess

What could a bad so bout di East
Everybody wants a piece
Africa fi Africans
Marcus Mosiah speak
Unification
Outnumber defeat
What a day when we walkin' down
Redemption Street
Banner pon head
Bible inna hand
One and all
Make we trod di promised land
Buju go down a Congo
Stop inna Sashamanne land
The city of Hararre's
Where Selassie come from
In Addis Abbaba
Den Botswana
Left Kenya
A end up inna Ghana
Oh what a beauty
My eye sight behold
Only Ethiopia
Protect me from di cold

Till I'm laid to rest, yes
Always be depressed
There's no life in the West uh
I know the East is the best
All di propaganda dem spread
Tongues will haffi confess

Organize and centralize
Come as one
Our seeds shall be
So many more den sand
Some new and replenish
Pure an clean heart
Far too long
We've been under this bond
Some a save a bag a riches
An dem bend empty hand
Waan say me stupid
An laugh all yuh can
Easier for a gunman to enter through a needle eye
Than it is for a rich guy to enter inna zion
Take it from I man (so)

Till I'm laid to rest, yes
Always be depressed
There's no livin' in the West uh
I know the East is the best
Lord, propaganda dem spread
Tongues will haffi confess

Oh I'm in bondage
Living is a mess
An I've got to rise up
Alleviate the stress
No longer will I
Expose my weakness
He who seeks knowledge
Begins with humbleness
Work 7 to 7
Yet me still penniless
For di food pon me table
Massa God bless
'Oller fi di needy
An shelterless
Ethiopia awaits
All prince and princess-uh

Till I'm laid to rest, yes
Always be depressed
There's no life in the West uh
I know the East is the best
All di propaganda dem spread
Tongues will haffi confess

What could a bad so bout di East
Everybody wants a piece
Africa fi Africans
Marcus Mosiah speak
Unification
Outnumber defeat
What a day
We walkin' down Redemption Street
Banner pon head
Bible inna hand
One and all
Make we trod di promised land
Buju go down a Congo
An den Sashamanne land
The city of Hararre's
Where Selassie come from
From Addis Ababa
Inna Botswana
Left Kenya
A end up inna Ghana
Oh whatta beauty
My eye sight behold
Only Ethiopia
Protect me from di cold

Till I'm laid to rest, yes
Always be depressed
There's no life in the West uh
I know the East is the best, yes
All di propaganda dem spread
Tongues will haffi confess

Organize
Centralize
Come as one
