This one is real
Yo, a Daddy Rings, Gentleman and Barrington Levy

No powers gonna hold us down
Not even dem peagon sound
No powers gonna hold us down
You'll never see we wearing a frown (repeat)
Verse 1

I've been chanting Jah powers from morning
Truths and rights I man keep performing
I hear the Babylon bell how it alarming
Dem see a righteous ghetto youth and ready fi swarm him
Verse 1

When it blow the whole a dem hafi go calm king
Long time we did a issue 'bout the warning
We ago hold Lucifer and disarm him

And i know he is everywhere

And he is the one for me, you see

Well as the sun shine and the wind blow
That's how i know, That's how i know

If you nuh know the truth yourself you are decieving
Trumpet a sound
And i man is leaving
Higher ground that is where i am going
Too bless to stress can't stop me from growing
