(Source: as heard)

Jah can count on I, I know,
Jah can count on I.
See, I won't deny, no way I know I won't ,
Haile Selassie I, woy, yoy .
Them Philistines fall on I, them they trying,
Trying to conquer I.
But I won't deny, no way I know I won't .
Haile Selassie I, yes .
For 'Cause He's the King of Kings
And Lord of Lords, I'm a saying,
Conquering lion on top? from Mount Zion,
Black wave of spirit, for So I say,
Jah can count on I, I know,
Jah can count on I, for I and Rastafari .
See, I won't deny, no way I know I won't ,
Haile Selassie I, no matter what them do .
Them Philistines fall on I, them they trying,
Trying to conquer I, to the spirit of the Most High
But I won't deny, no way,
Haile Selassie I, yes .
Jah With His loving arms around me,
And I know how much Rastafari love I.
So black wave of spirit for Jah.
I know Jah love will surround me.
Jah can count on I, Oh, Jah, oh, Jah, I know,
Jah can count on I, for I and Rastafari .
See, I won't deny, no way I know I won't .
Haile Selassie I, woy, yoy .
Them Philistines fall on I, them they trying,
Trying to conquer I, no way,
But I won't deny, oh I know I won't .
Haile Selassie I.
Jah loving arms around me,
And I know how much Rastafari love I.
So black wave of spirit for Jah.
Jah can count on I, oh, Jah, oh, Jah, yes
Jah can count on I, woy, yoy,
See, I won't deny, no way,
Haile Selassie I, them always,
Them Philistines fall on I, them always trying...
