Blessed meditation King Selassie I Jah
Gotta give ises for life eno

Pure and divine love to earth daughters & sons

Give thanks & praise Selassie name
Ghetto youths don't be troubled
In this Armageddon this a revolution
My people hold firm and strong

Verse 1
Man a trod to the east
Trample the beast
Dutty Babylon get defeat
I a trod upright yet them a give I a fight
Beat the drums fya flames ego ones
Revolution warrior ancient bongo Nyah

Haile selassie rule the land

Weh dem ago wid them spies
Binghi see them from a far

The Youths them nah calm
Dem a squeeze it down the lane
In the street and after dark
Mama cry another one gone
Dutty shitstems a drive ghetto youths to wrath
Rise up elevate all your thoughts
Free your mind from hate

In the land of the sinking sand
Rastafari fear not a dutty babylon

Ted dun know King Ital

Blessed Jah nyabinghi Ises
Prince Emmanuel I Selassie I
Empress Menen I I
