Hey! Mi ready when you ready fi go chant down Babylon, dutty system Mi ready when you ready fi go lick down Babylon, in a rhythm

Mi ready when you ready fi go tear down Babylon Mi ready when you ready fi go mash down Babylon Them nah do it like how dem say dem plan Dem just a dash it out dey in a foreign land A hungry nation is a angry one And it is bound to cause a revolution Power struggle a bubble it a bubble And starvation is on the double The ghetto children don't seem to stand a chance Instead of opportunity it's self reliance Mi ready when you ready fi go tear down Babylon, dutty system Mi ready when you ready fi go fling down Babylon, in a rhythm Mi ready when you ready fi go chant down Babylon Mi ready when you ready fi go lick down Babylon The rise in prices is rising every time And unemployment is making people turn to crime A bare promises and a bag a tricks While you kill each other over politics You want unity in a you community Though you don't belong to high society We hear of problems over the media About the blackman's struggle in a Africa So mi ready when you ready fi chant down Babylon Mi ready when you ready fi go tear down Babylon Mi ready when you ready fi go lick down Babylon Mi ready when you ready fi go chant down Babylon Is it because of the book and pencil Why you try to sidestep the treaty? Is it because of the pen and paper Why you keep the chains on me? Is it because of the book an pencil Why you try to avoid the treaty? Is it because of the pen and paper Why you keep the chains on me? If I had to fight for emancipation Then I shall resist for my liberation And with truth and right I shall win my liberty We shall unite to secure the victory Cudjoe and Nanny, their courage and their bravery Cuffy and Quashy, delivered their race from slavery Marcus Garvey and His Imperial Majesty Luther King and Marley, voices the oppression of humanity So mi ready when you ready fi go chant down Babylon, dutty system Mi ready when you ready fi go tear down Babylon, in a rhythm Mi ready when you ready fi go lick down Babylon Mi ready when you ready fi go mash down Babylon The school graduates turn into loafers Educated children turn into beggars The underprivileged nah go have no privilege Mentally handicaps what a disadvantage Mi ready when you ready fi go chant down Babylon, dutty system Mi ready when you ready fi go lick down Babylon, in a rhythm Mi ready when you ready fi go mash down Babylon Mi ready when you ready fi go tear down Babylon
