War Inna BabylonMax Romeo/Lee "Scratch" Perry

It sipple out deh!

Let me tell, it sipple out deh
A wha' you seh, it sipple out deh, oh yeah
War inna babylon, tribal war inna Babylon
It sipple out deh, wha' you seh, it sipple out deh, oh yeah

De baba men nuh like de dreadlocks man
De dreadlocks man nuh like de baba man, no
De po-lice men nuh like de dreadlocks man
De dreadlocks man nuh like de po-lice man, no

So war inna babylon, tribal war inna Babylon
Let me tell, it sipple out deh
A wha' you seh, it sipple out deh, oh yeah
War inna babylon, tribal war inna Babylon

Marcus garvey prophecise, say:
"One mus' live 10 miles away, yeah, in this time"
I-man satta at the mountain top
Watching Babylon burning red hot, red hot

A wha' you seh, it sipple out deh
So wha' fe do ? we slide out deh, oh yeah
War inna babylon, tribal war inna Babylon
A wha' you seh, it sipple out deh

True, true, true, it sipple out deh
So wha' fe do ? mek we slide out deh, oh yeah
True, true, true, it sipple out deh
Let me tell, we slide out deh
