Well dem done know say Emperor for ganja
Meaning ganja and Emperor dey Emperor
Alive yuh know, Jah

Emperor Hailie Selassie I,
Who sit up in the north to fight you up
And look to the east himself yuh know
You know say Babylon down step
As Rasta upset John Pope the beast

Chorus
Babylon you're too much to bear
Can't afford to do that now
I've got to keep my heavens clear
And I've got alot of youths to care
You keep on givin double gaow
Then by what means do you share? Hey
Too much to bare
Can't afford to do that now
I've got to keep my heavens clear, Jah
Alot of youths to care
You keep on givin I double gaow, go dey

Well den, taking all fi go stock inna yuh bank
Fi hours hear mi call and you turn and insult
You've been too bad for the heath of an adult
A baby is much better a result
Well now ghetto youths mi afi ask
Is it that hard to see,
The sickness that befall I n I is so many?
And we ah doctor that just so kill of mi family
Is ah try to fight an I for me hailin you

Chorus
And Babylon is so much to bear
Can't afford to do it now
I've got to keep my heavens clear
And I've got alot of youths to care
Whoa you keep on givin double gaow
Then by what means do you share? Yea
So much to bare
Can't afford to do it now
I've got to keep my heavens clear,
And mi have nuff ghetto youths dey care
Yo Babylon ah hope you ah hear

Watch how the compelling us to fight
Foward all the blood
Just thru you try so nuff ghetto youths dead
But Rasta fire bun the dead we all did hail
Emperor Hailie Selassie instead
Could dem, mi friend dem do it all the while
Nah reach no where, now dem smile
Me wonder what next dem ah tell me say
Mi tell the whole ah dem unite
Him have dem no did dey
Mi smile and now mi talk
And nuff ah dem ah go astray

Chorus
But Babylon is too much to bear
Can't afford to do that now
I've got to keep my heavens clear
And I've got alot of youths to care
They keep on givin double gaow
Then by what means do they share?
Babylon, too much to bare
Can't afford to do that now oh oh
Anyhow we nah go bow oh no
And I've got alot of youths to care
Oh no

Well make them know,
Oh yes the works of Jah, I man gladly accept
Be still and let it carried out and many success
Selassi I, I holla out He I solace
Standing watchful for my people in this west
Whoa Ethiopia for all burn faces,
There so everything start, some people village
Oh my people you are more than big
Every black man you see ah more than royalty
Cuz me know that's why mi know

Chorus
They're so much to bear
Can't afford to do that now
I've got to keep my heavens clear
And I've got alot of youths to care
You keep on givin I double gaow
Then by what means do you share? Oh oh
Too much to bare
Can't afford to do that now
I've got to keep my heavens clear,
Lot of youths to care
You keep on givin I double gaow
Mi say dey

Dem taking all fi go stock inna dem bank
Fi hours hear mi call and you turn and insult
You've been just too bad for the heath of an adult
A baby is much better a result
Well watch ah now know
Is it that hard to see,
The sickness that befall I n I is so many?
