Sizzla Lyrics - Oh Children
Well I seh bless the man that revealeth the truth, inno?
Unto this generation,
those with dem high honours never overstand,
Babylon build dem cities and break their own laws
so long yuh been amongst them
yet they didn't teach you that the fools get caught
so take us to the place where
justice embedded in our heart,
Ethiopia He was born there,
Emperor Selassie they all fail to adore
We the people must be true to ourself
stoop to brutality you perish and fell
A weh dem have fi hide?
Wha mek dem don't waan fi help?
The children going idly having no strength
our duty is to teach so you make it frequent
yuh nuh do it?
Upon yuh shoulders there comes di judgement
cannot be going that way
killing yourself, what's the sense?
Dem young tell dem get the teachings from the I-Shence
Firing guns becomes disobedient
they know not from whence they came so they rebel against
Babylon set it so builidin dem bridges and fence
That dem love support, dem so called government
dem engineer the downfall
of the righteous children
remind dem that slavery was not an accident
in return dem kill my brothers and my parents
repatriation bless so gi dem all di strength
Africa we deh come so mi hail di ancient
Mother Nature make us in the natural essence
Emperor Selassie Him rule all heaven
mi nuh care if dem intelligent, oh now
I and I are di foundation of the earth, never bring curse, black people
now I tell you to stand,
why you cease to be?
And let them come and dishevel it?
they have lost their war
because their desire was for fame and greed, I tell yuh now
all toungue haffi go tell, oh yes
all wicked man down on their knees, oh now
