Burning Spear - As It Is

I start singing in the late sixties
Told about Studio One by Bob Marley
Music went up down and around

Did someone remember, Burning Spear?
Did someone remember?
Did someone remember, Burning Spear?
Did someone remember him?

The music attention
Was in a different direction
Not a burning direction
Spear been through his struggle
With a lot of patience and discipline
Never bow down

Did someone remember, Burning Spear?
Did someone remember?
Did someone remember, Burning Spear?
Did someone remember him?

I've been through the struggle like everyone
Like the earlier musicians
Blues musicians
Jazz musicians
Reggae musicians
I was going back and forth
From St. Anns to Kingston
Thirteen Brentford Road

Did someone remember, Burning Spear?
Did someone remember?
Did someone remember, Burning Spear?
Did someone remember him?

Many times I ain't got no bus fair
Therefore got to hitch-ike on truck back
I am the stone that builders refused
I am the stone that builders refused

They put me aside, they passed me by
Thinking I would cry
Stone don't cry
Stone don't cry
Usually sit on Key Largo beach
Playing my bongos and eating ital stew

Did someone remember, Burning Spear?
Did someone remember?
Did someone remember, Burning Spear?
Did someone remember him?

The few soldiers that know me
They're either from Rough House or Soft House
Talk about Key Largo beach

Did someone remember, Burning Spear?
Did someone remember?
Did someone remember, Burning Spear?
Did someone remember him?

Did someone remember, Burning Spear?
Did someone remember?
Did someone remember, Burning Spear?
Did someone remember him?

Did someone remember, Burning Spear?
Did someone remember?
(Did someone remember, Burning Spear..)

(..)

Did someone remember him?
Did someone remember him?
