Minions and ___ hipocritical mockers
Come like you come here fi crunch Babylon crackers
Babylon cool you, let ah fry yuh like fritas

Uno free up the knowledge to the youth and youth producer

Come out yo, shut shut up your mouth I and I ah Ethiopian, Hey ey ey

Whole ah who know it, uno better doh tun no hikers
Yo inna Zion we nah cater fi no loafters
