Yes, me friend, me friend
Dem set me free again
Yes, me friend, me friend
Me deh 'pon street again

The bars could not hold me
Walls could not control me now
They try to keep me down
But God put me around

Yes, I've been accused
Wrongly abused now
But through the powers of the most high
They've got to turn me loose, mm

Don't try to cold me up on this bridge now
I've got to reach Mount Zion, the highest region
If you're a bull-bucker, let me tell you that
I'm a duppy conqueror, conqueror

Yes, me friend, me good friend
Dem set me free again, mm
Yes, me friend
Dem turn me loose again

Don't try to cold me up on this bridge now
I've got to reach Mount Zion, the highest region
If you're a bull-bucker, well let me tell you
I'm a duppy conqueror (conqueror)

(Yes, me friend) Me friend, me friend, me friend
Me deh a street again
Yes, me friend, me friend, me friend
Dem set me free again

Don't try to show off
You make you friend in laugh, what a la la
For I will cut you off
And I will take the mask off
I'm crying

Yes, me friend
Me deh a street again, yeah
Yes, me friend, me friend, me friend
Dem set me free again
