This song is by Sizzla and appears on the live album Words Of Truth (2000) and on the compilation album The Best Of Sizzla: The Story Unfolds (2002).

Well I and I say these be the words of his magesty
Emperor Hailie Selassie I
I and I hail the royal emperor of Ethiopia
And bun ah guy
Jah Bless, Well Read...

Babylon ah listen from near and far
Not even go ask them what dem peepin for
Tell them they cyar hold the youths
With no more house and car
Hear we Ethiopia, war ah this ah war
Babylon ah listen from near and far
Not even go ask them what dem searchin' for
Tell them they cyar hold the youths
With no more house and car
Gimme Ethiopia, yo afi black star

Babylon ah listen and devise new plan
Dangerous sittin' with they ass for too long
Blackness risen so arise black man
Black woman teeth ah glisten... Ethiopian
They think the fire did missin'
Come we bun Babylon
Dedicated to Britain and United Nation
Uno look what ah go happern fi repatriation
Uno free up every prisoner ah revolution
Sizzlasie I authority higher than...
Your police and your soldiers stop yuh molestation

Babylon ah listen from oh so far
Don't even go ask them what dem listenin for
Tell them they cyar hold the youths
With no more house and car
Gimme Ethiopia, 'cause that afi black star
Babylon ah listen from oh so far
Don't even go ask them what dem searchin' for
Tell them they cyar hold the youths
With no more house and car
Give we Ethiopia, the motherland fi black star

Rain over heathen, flood out we not dumb
Heathen and sheden done get John Paul stamp
The brigadaire go hear we come and same time him cramp
The major general dun full up a hope for camp
We bringing out the authotority so we nah ramp
It higher than voltage wattage and amp
The whole ah dem tek ras-council 'gainst me King
Ah bear fire Sizzla kalonji bring, you see

Babylon ah listen from oh so far
Don't even go ask them what dem peepin for
Tell them them cyar hold the youths
With no house and car
Give we Ethiopia, the motherland fi black star
Babylon ah listen from oh so far
Them and them associate ah fight bear psyco war
Tell them they cyar hold the youths
With no more house and car
Give we Ethiopia, the motherland fi black star

They say I must be friendly, no but what if not
Me nah different from nobody, King Selassie is the top
Me nah come fi love up any... wolf from the pack
And every youth ah come with me in the land of the Black
Yo ah so many black youth uno shot
You nah love Marcus Garvey this ah lick you like rock
Bun your dollars and penny come tell me say stop
Emanuel ah fi me and the youths dem whey have Ras

Yo dem ah listen from oh so far
Don't even go ask them what dem listenin for
Tell them them cyar hold the youths
With money house nor car
Give we Ethiopia, land fi the black star

Babylon ah listen and devise new plan
Dangerous sittin' with they ass for too long
Blackness risen so arise black woman
The youths teeth ah glisten royal Ethiopian
Fire never missin' come we bun Babylon
This goin' to Britain and United Nation
Uno look what ah go happern fi repatriation
Uno free up every prisoner ah revolution
Sizzlasie I authority higher than...
Your police and your soldiers, molestation, stop

Dem ah listen from oh so far
Don't even go ask dem...
