Intro The sunball...
When ah de sky...
Jah create it and it cyah stop shine
Fire, fire, fire--burning!
Fire...

Chorus It's burning so high and they can't put it out
Don't be ashame, don't be shy to sing and shout
This is love, yes your life--I no damn blasted joke
Mmhmm... reach above the sky, you make it I know

Verse 1 A whole lot ah people keep searching
For the truth because wrong-doing is hurting
The Babylonian system just not working
Teach us love--that's the first thing, hmm
Make hay--the sun shine today
Hey hey, what you got to say?
You can't stay there, there's no time to play
Don't you go in my way

Chorus Burning so high and they can't put it out
Don't be ashame, don't be shy to sing and shout
This is love, this is life--I no damn blasted joke
Then you reach above the sky, you'll make it--hah!

Verse 2 The Earth rotate on it's axis and it cyah stop turn
Once dis pickney ah school, cyah stop learn
Boy hot ah fire whey he cyah stop burn
Work hard for what yuh want, yuh cyah stop earn
Woy! hotter fire, rastaman ah dash it
Hey Babylonian! me say fi watch it
Woy! yes--marijuana, we got it

My desire is to see Rastafari in full control
Keep you warm when it's cold, so you look and behold
Life is worth more than gold

This is love, yes your life--I no damn blasted joke
