Sizzla – Mash Dem Down lyrics

Ah, Just like in the older days
Chop off the pagan head and let it roll away
Listen to what I got to say
Praise the King every day

Chorus
Come mek we go mash dem down nah lose
All dem ah wrinch and ah frown
Stumble blocks will have to move
Come we go mash dem down cyah lose
Ah, Deal wit dem ras
Because ah prove dem come ah prove
Me ah mash dem down nah lose
All dem ah wrinch and ah frown
Stumble blocks will have to move
Come we go mash dem down nah lose
Kalonji come fi mash dem down nah lose

Listen Up
Little children I say to honor your mother and your father
Tell you again I say to love you one another
Praise Selassie I crown, in Addis Ababa
Second ah November 1930 Jah-Jah Jah-Jah java
Ey pon the wicked mi dash the hotta lava
Big up the ghetto girl ah Kingston and Balaclava
Mama use to give we dumplin mek out ah casava
Yo you got the riches you must share what you have-ah
Farmer plat the food and stop the people dem from starve-ah
Yo Jah lead us with his rod and with his staff-ah
All pagan mi know dem must get cut off
Babylon your breath get shut off

Chorus
Come mek we go mash dem down nah lose
All dem ah wrinch and ah frown
Stumble block will have to move
Come we go mash dem down nah lose
Find out say ah prove dem ah prove
Wicked people we ah go mash dem down nah lose
Conquering Lion obstacles we come ah move
Come we go mash dem down nah lose
Babylon we mash dem down ah

Burn them plan and them plot and them stratergies
Burn them up them computers and dem cartridges
Lion inna the jungle we nah bow fi dem catergories

Chorus
Mash dem down nah lose
Deal with dem ras,
Because ah prove dem come ah prove
Come mek we go mash dem down nah lose

No more no more will black people dem stifle
When dem ah shot the people dem ah kill dem with poison
Cyar tell me nuttin me say the Conquerin lion inna the Bible

Chorus

Come mek we go mash dem down nah lose
All dem ah wrinch and ah frown
Stumble block will have to move

Cyar this the Rastaman because him on his foundation rigid
Love and righteousness is with the youths govern the village
