Beenie Man – Foundationfoundation lyrics
Glorious be to the most high, Jah, Rastafari
Oh, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nigh

A Selassie send dem, well
Cause music a fi play dem, yeh

Verse 1:
Well Mr. Sly, well

Trample down a tg, rema man we a talk to
All rema man unuh fi cool an unuh fi humble
Put down all di guns an leave di chain an all di bangle
