Lyrics

(Source: as heard)

They try to fool the black whole population
By telling them that Jah Jah dead.
And they try to fool the black whole population
By telling them that Jah Jah dead.
I and I knows that
Jah no dead.
Jah no dead.
Jah no dead.
Jah no dead.
Jah no dead.
Jah no dead.
Jah no dead.
Oh, no-oh,
Jah no dead.
My knowledge increase,
My memory reflect,
Marcus Garvey did say.
A rumor, rumor, rumor, rumor, rumor,
Oh, Marcus say.
A rumor, rumor, rumor, rumor, rumor,
Oh, Marcus say.
Jah no dead.
Jah no dead.
It was Hyman who say
It's green and gold, it's the rainbow.
The lion, the lion did crown the king,
The lion, the lion did crown the king,
In Addis Ababa, Africa.
Jah no dead.
Jah no dead.
Jah no dead.
Meet me at the bank of the beautiful river
When your journey has ended.
I and I will discuss about this matter.
Jah no dead.
