Dem dread seh,
Dem dread seh.
No matter how you bad, I man; badder than you,
No matter how you dread, I man; dreader than you.
No matter how you hard, I man harder than you,
No matter how you raw, I more-weak heart, back way so.
A bad man no want go back into cap-tivity,
A bad man no want go back to slavery.
Up-rising, from the claws of the wicked.
Two bulls can't reign in one pen,
Two lions can't roar in a small den.
Two scorpions don't sting at the same spot,
Two guns can't fire the same bullet shot, so;
Two kings don't wear the same crown,
Two beauties don't have the same gown on.
To-morrow is too late to leave town,
If you're still here at noon,
There'll be one big, big, big showdown, so;
I give you 'till noon to go,
On your way to sur-vival, where;
Your heart will beat more fonder with life,
And breath still enters your body.
If you still coming; me nah run,
If you still coming; me ah go, drop you.
So better stop running be-fore I, break you.
So run and hide before I find you,
Woe betide if I catch up on you.
If you still coming; I box you down,
If you still coming; I clart you down.
We deh under backraw.
Long time we deh under back-raw,
Long time we deh under back-raw.
Four hundred years,
(Many, many years).
Oh, you've been bought,
Oh, you've been sold.
Oh, cast over me,
Got strung up for nothing at all.
(Repeat to Fade)
