I want to be ready
I want to be ready
I want to be ready lord
Walking to Babylon with my gun

I want to be ready
I want to be ready
I want to be ready lord
Walking to Babylon with my gun
I want to be ready
I want to be ready
I want to be ready lord
Walking to Babylon with my gun
Brother Rasta is dead
Listen everybody says, "They shoot Brothers Rasta dead"
Bragging boys in blue
They shot him through (They shoot Brothers Rasta dead)
Tonight's the night
We're gonna have a big fight (They shoot Brothers Rasta dead)
They got the power, we got the right (They shoot Brothers Rasta dead)
I want to be ready
I want to be ready
I want to be ready lord
Walking to Babylon with my gun
I want to be ready
I want to be ready
I want to be ready lord
Walking to Babylon with my gun
Now it's my turn
I'm gonna take my gun (They shoot Brothers Rasta dead)
And walk to Babylon just like I was a million (They shoot Brothers Rasta dead)
"They gonna kill you, son!", "Don't worry mum" (They shoot Brothers Rasta dead)
Along my country way I'm gonna shout and say
"They shoot Brother Rasta dead"
"They shoot Brother Rasta dead"
"They shoot Brother Rasta dead"

I want to be ready
I want to be ready
I want to be ready lord
Walking to Babylon with my gun
I want to be ready
I want to be ready
I want to be ready lord
Walking to Babylon with my gun
I want to be ready
I want to be ready
I want to be ready lord
Walking to Babylon with my gun
I want to be ready
I want to be ready
I want to be ready lord
Walking to Babylon with my gun

Rudy left for the city but three days later
Washed back by the tide, found his body on the riverbank
