Lee Scratch Perry – Judgment In A Babylon lyrics

This is the truth, nothing but the truth, so help me god
I saw Chris Blackwell in Nassau, Bahamas
Drinking the blood of a fowl in a rom glass
At his new studio, in Compass Point
So help me god, this is the truth
He invite me from Kingston Jamaica
To the new opening of his new studio
I went and I saw this event, with my own eyes
And I man seriously said
The truth should long live the sky
He offered me a cup of fresh fowl blood
I said to him, man; I am a stud, I don't drink blood
I am the collie man, I'm a solid man
I am the roots man, I am the truth man
I am a fear man, I am the gear man
I don't drink blood
Chris Blackwell is a vampire
And I am speaking the truth, through electric fire
Tom Hayes his lawyer is a vampire
And I man is speaking the truth through electric wire
His secretary Denise is a witch
Who claims to be his high priestess
They believe in cult, voodoo and obeah
I am telling you the truth and it's no lie, Iya
International news, to the Jews
International news, from the blues
Chris Blackwell is a vampire
Sucking the blood of the sufferer
He killed Bob Marley, and take away his royalty
He killed Bob Marley, and penalized The Wailers
Chris Blackwell is a vampire
Sucking the blood of the sufferer
Tom Hayes is a vampire
Who is sucking the blood of the sufferer
Chris Blackwell killed Bob Marley, and take away his royalty
Because Bob Marley was speaking the truth
So he set him up, to get rid of him
Because he is working with the Mafias
I saw Chris Blackwell in Nassau
Drinking the blood of a chicken, in a rom glass
And have the heart to offer I man a drink
I said no man, I don't deal with ism or schism
I am a clean cut, from the root
I am a clean cut, I am the truth
I am a clean cut, I love the youth
I don't drink blood
Chris Blackwell come to Jamaica and want to sign up all the artists
Because he want to control Jamaican music
Then he can take the black man music and promote his white artists
But Jahovia Jah Rastafari say it won't work
He get a jerk
Simmer down, you lickin too hot
Cool down your temper
Chris Blackwell cool heart
Walk back, step back
Judgment in a Babylon...
Judgment in a Babylon...
Human rights declaration throughout the land
Universally
Through the earth, wind and fire
Through the earth, wind and fire
Chris Blackwell is a vampire
Who is always sucking the blood of the sufferer
Christopher Columbus
Chris Blackwell is a vampire
Who is sucking the blood of the sufferer...
He gave Bob Marley cancer
Couldn't find a youngster
