Words of wisdom cometh from the wise man
Wise man says: This is the Drunkard Psalm
To the inspiration of I, Prince Buster

Rum is their Shepherd and they live in want
Psalm 23:1

It maketh them to lie down in the gutter on an empty stomach
And vomit up some green things they did not eat
Psalm 23:2

It has anointed their income with outcome
It leadeth them in the path of destruction for its proof's sake
Psalm 23:3

Yea, though they walk through the streets of Kingston
They're as hungry as hell, and they do fear evil
For they cannot see
Psalm 23:4

It prepares disaster before them in front of their friends
And, for a long time, it has anointed their head with blood
Their veins run dry
Psalm 23:5

Surely man, surely, surely as the sun riseth
Poverty and hunger shall follow them all the days of their life
And they shall fight with the landlord forever
Psalm 23:6

I gave you the Ten Commandments
Exodus 34:27-28

But your Ten Commandments cannot be kept
Unless you set an example for your woman-kind
Thou shalt not drink the rum
It's for destruction

This is the Drunkard Psalm
Keep it set in your mind
And you'll have a good clean liver

Words from the wise man
Words from the wise man
Wisdom cometh from the wise man
Take heed to the wisdom of the wise man
Proverbs 13:20
