Max Romeo – Macabee Version lyrics
You gave I King James Version
King James was a white man
You built I dangerous weapon
To kill I own black man
You sold the land God gave I
And taught I to be covetous

What other wicked things
Have you got in mind?
Tell me, what are gonna do
To stop these daily crimes?

Bring back Macabee Version
That God gave to black man
Give back King James Version
Belongs to the white man

Black man, get up, stand up, find your foot
And give black God the glory
Black man, get up, stand up, find your foot
And give black God the glory, yeah

You suffer I and you rob I
You starve I then you kill I
But what are you gonna do
Now that your sword have turn against you?

Black man, get up, stand up, find your foot
And give black God the glory
Black man, get up, stand up, find your foot
And give black God the glory

Bring back Macabee Version
That God gave to black man
Give back King James Version
That belongs to the white man

Black man, get up, stand up, find your foot
And give black God the glory
Black man, get up, stand up, find your foot
And give black God the glory
