Hear this Three monkeys sitting under a coconut tree (really?) Discussing things as they are said to be Said one to the others, now listen you two There?s a strange rumor that can?t be true They say man was ascended from our noble race But the very idea is a big disgrace No monkey ever deserted his wife Or her baby, to ruin their lives Yeah The monkeys drift is mine (that?s right) [Chorus] Well educated fools they have ruined di world And start make it hard for both di boys and di girls Dem steal all di Africans diamonds and pearls And start bank it up inna federal reserves And then Rasta f*ck it up and insight riot Warn dem fi cool and we did warn dem fi quiet Now dem hear the kick drum di snare and di hi hat Load up dem belly with some copper shot diet Imagine after so much chantin and preyers But a revolutionary situation requires Mi fi come tear off unno face wid pliers Surround dem ends wid all some burning tires Round up dem friends and put dem pon trials Until dem send di reparation dollars Warning to all di political scholars Political thieves and political liars Political cocaine and gun suppliers Di whole a dem a go down inna flames and fires Well unno better fly out like some frequent fliers Bound to feel the wrath of di real Bongonyahs Hey don't f*ck yourself next time you read out di budget Di government case, ah poor people a judge it Dem bring di guns but di youths dem ah bust it Bun dem skeletons weh lock up inna closet Wipe out dem species and all dem inhabits With a warm series of pain and havoc Nah clean no feces fi money prefer grab it Dem mek mi resort to violence di race get lead up Somebody nah live up somebody goin dead up BLOW!! Whole ah di garment dem red up BLOW!! Car and apartment get bled up Didn't you get ample warning Say poor people fed up And still every morning Dem try hold dem head up Emperor Selassie calling Youths dem fi dread up Babylon is fallen Gun nozzle bend up Releasing di whole of di youth dem weh pen up [Chorus] Junior Gong a junior bong ??? Poor people across the world this is a special dedication ??? Check di starifacation, Yo Well educated fools they have ruined di world And start make it hard for both di boys and di girls Dem steal all di Africans diamonds and pearls And start bank it up inna federal reserves Well educated fools they few in di world And start make it hard for both di boys and di girls Dem steal all di Africans diamonds and pearls And start bank it up inna federal reserves Well educated fools Educated demons And educated goons Educated mules Educated fools Educated demons And educated goons ??? All dem shady people dem nasty and sour This is war last time me as block lower 'Cause I represent black power Well, Almighty God inna da statue a toa A long time me go some more dey come to devour ??? power and show a A trick dem with dem rice and flour, ya know Me respect Rasta-Fearians Me respect church goer Dem fi no say poor people On a boat can?t no row a Fire a flame me bring fi ya ya drug for ya And anyone a go a dem fi know ya Well I heard that man came from sands and other molecules Way before bodies and barbecues With a good side a bad side and still argue too Before schemin' and thievin' and dreamin' of gleamin' and feenin' Even before Adam and Eve and even Before it was about being the nicest or whose diamonds that are priceless B.C. around Tutankhamun and Isis On the continent of Africa Pass out and tribes to create a character sold us shit On earth was magical Then the strangers came from the boat with the ropes Chains that felt strange, they called it the slave game The game changed They had shackled like assholes The Bloodclaat So now a days the way prevent it is a thugs glock Seen them rape and kill our children and women, the villain The bill gon sort the black man how to kill men Let's keep it real man You can't harm me or scar me Respect for me History's priority with the Marleys
