Sizzla - Babylon Cowboy

Honourable Marcus Garvey!
Oyyyy..
So.. much love,
That's all I come to give Emperor Selassie I,

And yet still dem nah wah live.

So Babylon give dem ah toy,
See dey inna dem hand,
Dem turn cowboy..

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.

Mussolini test and get dem skull turn down.

So Babylon give you dem toy,
See dey inna yuh hand,

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?

Now ah know Emmanuel, yuh never humble,
Drag down, ah hail under stress and trouble.

Those of whom, kick de bucket are my brothers and sisters,
