Marcus Garvey words come to pass
Marcus Garvey words come to pass

Can't get no food to eat
Can't get no money to spend, whoa
Can't get no food to eat, mm
Can't get no money to spend, whoa

Come, little one, and let me do what I can for you
And you and you alone
Come, little one, come, whoa
Let me do what I can, mm
For you and you alone, whoa

He who know the right and do it not
Shall be spanked with many stripes
Weeping and wailing and moaning
You got yourself to blame, I tell you

Do right, do right, do right, do right, do right
Do right, do right, do right, do right, do right, do right
I beg you, whoa
Tell you to do right, mm
Beg you to do right, whoa

Where is Bag-o-wire, he's nowhere around
He can't be found
First betrayer who gave away Marcus Garvey
Son of Satan, first prophesy

Catch them, Garvey, whoa
Hold them, Marcus, hold them, mm
Prophesy a-fulfilled, whoa
Catch them, Garvey, catch them, mm
Hold them, Marcus, hold them, whoa
Marcus Garvey, Marcus, mm
Words come to pass
