Why boasteth thyself, O evil men;
Playing smart and not being clever, oh no!
I say you're working iniquity
To achieve vanity, yeah, if a-so a-so.
But the goodness of Jah, Jah
Idureth for Iver.

If you are the big tree,
We are the small axe
Sharpened to cut you down, (well sharp)
Ready to cut you down, oh yeah!

These are the words of my master
Keep on tellin' me, o-oh! 
No weak heart shall prosper
Oh no, they can't! Eh.

And whosoever diggeth a pit, Lord,
Shall fall in it, shall fall in it.
Whosoever diggeth a pit
Shall bury in it, shall bury in it.

If you are the big tree,
We are the small axe
Sharpened to cut you down,
Ready to cut you down.

Whosoever diggeth the pit
Shall fall in it, fall in it, eh!
Whosoever diggeth the pit
Shall bury in it, shall bury in it.

If you are the big tree,
We have a small axe
Ready to cut you down, (well sharp)
Sharpened to cut you down.

If you are the big tree,
Let me tell you this, we are the small axe
Ready to cut you down, (well sharp)
Sharpened to cut you down.

If you have a big tree
