[Verse 1]
A youth and youth fi have a plan, and have some ambition
And make sure unno firm inna the Armageddon
So when your son become a man, him know just where you stand
Him know him puppa said it, so him follow tradition
If Marcus Garvey say fi read, then weh some man a pree
'Cause knowledge a the key and it will set the people free
And Haile I philosophy, is African unity
Unno watch the segregation and social impurity
The race is not just for the swift, but those who can endure
Ecclesiastes 9:11

Make sure you have a steady footing inna Zion door
And keep dem thoughts dem pure, Jah love is for the poor
But some likkle bwoy a buss some gun dem muma can't afford
If Jah say blood fi run, then let Jah will be done
The heaven and the earth will pass away before Him word no come
Matthew 24:35; Mark 13:31; Luke 21:33

But if I'm rise without a cause, there will be no reward
For you to enter Zion gates, because you are a fraud (hey)

For the youths in the struggle (ooh yeah)
Fighting Guerilla warfare
Ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah
Somalia to Ethiopia
From Egypt to Zimbabwe
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah-ai

[Verse 2]
Haile Selassie say a war, if colour is a scar
If one from every nation can come live up an' a par
So don't care who you are, there's a brighter morning star
It's shining, wake the town and tell the people near and far
You seek and you will search, with science and research
The flesh it is the temple and the temple is the church
1 Corinthians 6:19

Haile Selassie say fi work, so how some man a lurks
Dem fix upon dem corner side like rubbish heap and dirt
Haile Selassie say a one, respect for every man
No care the race, no care the colour nor the religion
So make a decision, fi bun the division
'Cah each and every Rasta youth to trod 'pon the mission
