Dennis Brown - Promised Land

Whoah, well now!
Hey! Whoa well.

The promised land.
Going to the promised land.
Yes the promised land, oh gosh now.
To the promised land.

Make a step down to Wasmara,
Then we stopped in Addis Ababa.
Made our way to Shshamane land,
Riding on the King's highway.

The promised land.
Going to the promised land, oh gosh.
To the promised land, whoa.
To the promised land, well.

There's plenty of land for you and I, by and by,
Lots of food to share for everyone,
No time for segregation in the promised land, oh gosh.

Take me to the promised land.
Said the promised land, whoa!
Yes the promised land, whoa oh.. yeh!

Said we're, riding on the King's highway,
From a Cairo to Kenya.
Made a stop in Wasmara,
Then we made another one in Addis Ababa.

The promised land.
Going to the promised land, oh gosh.
Said the promised land,
Yeah the promised land, whoaa.

Then I said to myself, give a thanks for the Prophet, God,
For He gave me the teachings so I could see.
The reality of my true being and levity,
There's a lot of work to be done, oh gosh,
In the promised land.

Yeah, talking 'bout the promised land,
Yes, to the promised land.
The promised land,
Going to the promised land.
Ohh, the promised land! Whoa, the promised land!
Said the promised land, whoa oh yeh, whoa!

Brother man, what are you doing for the promised land?
Gotta take your stand and let the Prophets live on, yeah!
There's work to be done, though you can't run,
Got a job to be done, so you've got to do it,
Even, a little by little.

Yes the promised land,
Going to the promised land.
Said the promised land,
Going to the promised land.

Prophets of the old, said the west got to perish, eh, oh!
Don't let your hopes and aspirations drown before you, no way.
Gotta go, gotta go, got to go, I got to go, got to go,
To the promised land, oh gosh.
Yeah the promised land, whoaa!
