Sizzla – Thanks And Praise lyrics

I say pead my cause,
Strive with those that striveth,
Fight against those that fight against I
Emperor Selassi I,
The Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah
Uh

Chorus
Live and love your life always,
Children give Jah thanks and praise
Most high he give us length of days
Silver and gold shall fade
So live and love your life always
Come let us give thanks and praise
Most high he give us length of days
Zion and the earth all living things
And human beings he made

Bombs and guns that all they aim at us
We're Ethiopian Africans we're strangers no
So Zion kinda system it so dangerous
Honor your mother and your father
Say ah blessed love
And do remember Jah has made you faithful
So show more love and don't be hateful
Neglect the most high you'd be so ungrateful eh
And that would be disgraceful

Chorus
Live and love your life always,
Come let us give thanks and praise
Most high give us length of days
The silver and gold shall fade
So live and love your life always
Children give Jah thanks and praise
Rastafari give us length of days
The silver and gold shall fade

So much people pocket full and running over
Yet they wouldn't share they rather
Hold in nah bringin ah lil something when coming over
Little children even ghetto youths must show love
Spend out the riches fit up the village
Bun out the hate and grudge
Chant Rastafari ah chant
Emperor Selassie I is the Conquering Lion
Love and righteousness we want

Chorus
Live and love your life always,
Children give Jah thanks and praise
Ohh ooo length of days
Most high we praise King Selassie I
Live and love your life always
Come let us give thanks and praise
Most high give us length of days
The vanities shall fade whoa yea

Love life that's the reality
Clean and pure that's the quality
Emperor Selassie I he stand for
Equal righteousness and morality

Chorus
Live and love your life always,
Come let us give thanks and praise
He give us length of days
Oh riches shall fade
So live and love your life always
Sizzla Kalongi keep the fire it ah blaze
Rastafari come to liberate the slave
Conquering Lion never fail

Yo, you live on the street, every night and day
You idle and you lurks in the coner when you touch out
Kook wrong corner you go... Ow
Mama gone inna purse you go pluck out
Gone wit your father fridge, phone
And then you just cut out
Why is it you won't stop from doing those wrongs

Chorus
Live and love your life always,
Children give Jah thanks and praise
He give length of days
Whoa yea yea
