Oy!...
So much love
That's all I come to give
Emperor Selassie I show dem love
And yet still dem nah wah live

So Babylon give dem ah toy
See dey inna dem hand
Dem turn cowboy
Babylon say destroy
So anytime ah-poh-poh-toi, hoi-hoi
Babylon give dem ah toy
See dey inna dem hand
Dem turn cowboy
Babylon give dem ah toy
Anytime now ah-blokkodoy, hoi-hoi--Jah!

Dem buss it so prevalent
And nuff ah dem kick de bucket
Selassie run he resident
So gunman watch it
Rastaman come strong with love inna de district
You are most American, with yuh gun 'pon yuh hip
De cop all dem still hide
'Cause Bobby shot de sheriff
Commissioner ah run because we honour we commit
Whether nah no not Jah coast ah-yow, cowboy go down
Done know yuh bow--yuh shot yuh brother with yuh gun
Fuh rights, nah justice, yuh nah buss it fi none
Well since yuh slaughter, Selassie I come
Emperor sit down 'round de biggest machine gun
Mussolini test and get dem skull turn down

So Babyoln give you dem toy
See dey inna yuh hand
Yuh turn cowboy
Babylon say destroy
Anytime now ah-boh-boh-boi, hoi-hoi
Babylon give you a toy
See dey inna yuh hand
Yuh turn cowboy, -oy, ey!
Babylon say destroy
Anytime now ah-blokkodoy, hey hey!

Some skin 'bout to peel like Scalien
Some ah dem cyah nyam dem meal, comfortable and strong
Dis' de man whey fly de seal, done know yuh wrong
Rastaman no try no deal, we no fear no wicked man
Shipment come in a drum, so dem ah boast
Yow, 'pon dey front, dem cock-up and all ah sport
Cyah come 'gainst Jah-Jah sheep nor goat
Touch Lion 'gain and we bound fi buss yuh throat
Yuh nah go Africa, den ah where you ah run to?
Nah nah-nah-nah-nah, no worry
Selassie I see whey yuh do
Now ah know Emmanuel, yuh never humble
Drag down, ah hail under stress and trouble

You go grab up dem toy
See dey inna yuh hand
Yuh turn cowboy
Babylon give you dem toy
So anytime now ah-poh-poh-poi, hoi how-hoi
Babylon give you dem toy
See dey inna yuh hand
Yuh turn cowboy--hey!
Babylon give you dem toy
Anytime now ah-poh-poh-poi, hey

Den me ah journey, yah
I'll never stop troddin' since Jah sun shine from above, ey-hey
Those of whom kick de bucket are my brothers and sisters
I surely love, ey-hey!
Still I have to keep going on
I know not nothing as skylarking, ey-hey!
As long as Jah side take the corn
I and I will be ruling, yay-hey

Babylon give you dem toy
See dey inna yuh yuh hand
Yuh turn cowboy
Babylon give you dem toy
Anytime now ah-poh-poh-poi, hoy

Well Sizzla bring just more than love
Repeated That's all I come to give
Emperor Selassie I did show dem love
And yet still some nah wah live

So Babylon give dem ah toy
See dey up on dem hip
Dem turn cowboy, yay-hey!
Babylon give dem a toy
Anytime now ah-poh-poh-poi, hey
