Intro:
Blessed
Emperor Seassie I surely have done ey
About the welfare and prosperity of I and I people
But know yourself black people
Judgement

Don't do on pretending to be someone you can not
yea yea yea ey ey
Live according and you'll know as to what
rugu rue rue rue
Love and inity is the only thing we've got
rigididu yea yea
Jah prepare us to meet all your onslaught
yea ea ea ey ey
Have you heard of Ethiopia the purest land thereof, thereof ?

Children, Babylon will be burning with flames from the sun
Unnuh might think a fun, nah badder run
Mi hail Selassie I and their coward tongue rah ah ah
Them war and strive and blood feast
Soon your time to preach
Give Selassie I the praise
Or else you're punish as the beast
Black people trod up inna the East

CHORUS
Babylon your mental chains break
yea yea yea yay yay
For Ethiopia's progress ourself we educate
Well a lightning hotta earthquake
Babylon your mental chains break
yea ea ea ey ey
Black people go home for righteousness sake
oh rugu rue rue rue


The preaching is over, what's your actions to this ?
So long up inna them land, nothing you have accomplished
Them inna them computer age, children beware of it
Because everything, everything becomes cybernetic
Repatriation, we endeavour, we'll all make it
Too much inna Babylon, that is too much for your kit
Computer is them world, them number is 666
That's the mark of the beast, look out for micro-chip

CHORUS
Babylon your mental chains break
yea yea yea yo oh
For Ethiopia's progress ourself we educate
Ghetto youths them afi know them place
Lizibeth dem mental chains dey break
rogo ro oh oh
Black people go home righteousness sake
Ah lava and ah earthquake

Rasta is the head needless to be afraid
Ah nuff a them cuss the Rastaman and run gone shave
Ah nuff them Babylon program as them slave
Them run Emmanuel sey a Selassie I the youths fi praise

CHORUS
Babylon your mental chains break
yea yea yea yay ey
For Ethiopia progress ourself we educate
rugu rue rue rue
Babylon them mental chains they break
yea yea yea yay ey
For Ethiopia's progress chant righteousness sake yo
Nyabhingi done there inna the place

Don't do on pretending to be someone you can not
yea yea yea yo oh
Live according and you'll know as to what
rugu rue rue rue
Jah make us prepare... (fading)
