Lyrics

(Source: AllReggaeLyrics.com: Door Peep)

Door peep shall not enter; this a holy land,
Where wise and true man stand, sipping from this cupful cup of peace
Not one shall enter,
Not one.
One, two, three, four...
Door people shall not enter;
This a holy land.
Where wise and true man stand,
Sipping from the cup of peace.
We chant down a Babylon,
We chant down a babylon,
We chant down a Babylon,
Chant down a Babylon.
Give thanks and praise,
Give thanks and praise,
Give thanks and praise,
You give thanks and praise
To the holy man one of creation.
Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay.
You chant down a Babylon,
Chant down a Babylon,
You chant down a Babylon,
Chant down a Babylon.
Give thanks and praise,
Give thanks and praise,
Give thanks and praise,
Give thanks and praise.
To the holy man one of creation.
Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay.
Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay.
Door peep shall not enter;
(Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay.)
This a holy land,
(Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay.)
Where wise and true man stand,
(Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay.)
Sipping from the cup of peace.
(Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay.)
You chant down a Babylon,
(Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay.)
Chant down a Babylon,
(Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay.)
Chant down a Babylon,
(Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay.)
Chant down a Babylon.
(Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay.)
