Jacob Miller - Big Stripe (To Lock Up Rasta-Fari)

Their chariots are travelling through Babylon
Woah-ohh, red sea and blue sea
They're the peace officers of brutality

Dem get a big stripe fi go lock up Rastafari
Promotion, promotion, promotion

Dem get a big stripe fi go lock up Rastafari
Promotion, promotion, promotion
Dem get a big stripe fi go lock up Rastafari

These men are so ugly, no peace or no love
For they roadblock brothers can't you see, woah-ohh

These men look so ugly, can't you see? Woh-oh-oh
All they know to do - terrorize innocent people 'long the road
Carrying all man with false weapon, seh them a bad man
But them is the bad man can't you see?!
Oh Jah, whip them outta Babylon
Oh Jah, whip them out, whip them out

All over in Angola
Men with big guns trying to shoot down I and I bredren
Can't you see, it's time for all black people to get together
Oh-oh-oh

Black and white we're jus' the same
Jus' sight up the truth and living God, ohhhh
Jah Ras, Jah Ras, Jah Rastafari, oh-oh-oh

Get a big stripe fi go lock up Rastafari
Can't you see, can't you see?
Look at the corporal become a superintendent
Then fire did a deal, woh-oh..
