Burning Spear - Marcus Garvey
Marcus Garvey's words come to pass
Can't get no food to eat
Can't get no money to spend, wo-oo-oo
Can't get no food to eat, hmm-mmm-mmm
Can't get no money to spend, woo-oo-oo
Come little one, oh let me do what I can do
For you and you, and you, alone
Come, little one, come, oh-oh-oh
Let me do what I can, hmm-mmm-mmm
For you, and you, alone, oh-oh-oh
He who knows the right and do it not
Shall be spanked with many stripes
Weeping and wailing and mourning
You've got yourself to blame, I tell you
Do right, do right, do right, do right, do right
Do right, do right, do right, do right, do right, do right
I beg you, oh-oh-oh
Tell you to do right, hmm-mmm-mmm
Beg you to do right, woo-oo-oo
Where is Bag O' Wire, he's nowhere around
He can't be found
First betrayer who gave away Marcus Garvey!
Son of Saint Ann, first prophesy
Catch them, Garvey, woo-oo-oo
Hold them Marcus, hold them, hmm-mmm-mmm
Prophesy a fulfil, woo-oo-oo
Catch them Garvey, catch them, hmm-mmm-mmm
Hold them Marcus, hold them, oh-oh-oh
Marcus Garvey, Marcus, hmm-mmm-mmm
Words come to pass..
Note:Bag O'Wire is a mythological character.
In legend, he was Marcus Garvey's driver, who was responsible for betraying Garvey to the authorities and then taking off ('he's nowhere around').
