They will lie to the people just to get the leader's crown on their head,
That is all they want,
But they will make us to believe them by promising us good road, free education, water and streets light,
We are tired of hearing you on radio telling lies everytime,
Watching you on TV making false promises,
If you were in our shoes tell me how you will feel.

We need equal right to be free,
We're tired of hearing come today and come tomorrow.

They will lie to deceive you
Promising you a heaven on earth
But till Jah's kingdom comes will it be done,
They will try to deceive you
Mounting poles in your street
For will never be wired,
Giving women a bag of salt to share,
And to do again when his kingdom comes,
I am tired of hearing lies from these people everytime,
Telling us to hold on everything is gonna be alright,
Do you really know what it means to fail a pledge?

We need equal right to be free,
We're tired of hearing come today and come tomorrow.

Dem'a chopping our money everyday and we've got to do nothing yet
Cos a'dem keeps on telling us to hold on,
But I and I know that dem'a telling us lies man!
And da Rastaman never like cheating and smiling.
All they do is sitting on table
Drinking tea of a million bought milk,
Forgotten that there are people in jail who only feeds on bad odours,
All they do is putting on coats
Flying around with helicopters,
But forgotten that there are people out there who are working on barefooted.

We need equal right to be free,
We're tired of hearing come today and come tomorrow.
