Mmm.
Said Jah prophet has arise (prophet has arise),
He's got a dread look in his eyes (dread look in his eyes),
Dread look in his eyes (for them to realize).
Said Jah prophet has arise (prophet has arise),
He's got a dread look in his eyes (for them to centralize),
Dread look in his eyes (they've got to organize).
One has arise to judge and execute (Jah you),
Whether you're friend or foe,
From along he'll let you know.
Moses was a seer (pro-phe-he-het),
King David was a seer (prophet),
So the people shall never run short
Of a king or a prophet.
Prophet has arise,
Dread look in his eyes.
Said Jah prophet has arise (prophet has arise),
He's gonna hit them by surprise (for them to realize),
Hit them by surprise (they've got to centralize).
Prophet has arise.
Moses, Moses, Moses, Moses,
Moses was a seer (pro-phe-he-het),
King David was a seer (prophet),
So the people shall never run short
Of a king or a prophet.
Said Jah prophet has arise (prophet has arise)
He's got a dread look in his eyes (dread look in his eyes),
Dread look in his eyes (for them to realize).
Said Jah prophet has arise (prophet has arise),
He, he's gonna hit them by surprise (for them to centralize),
Hit em by surprise (they've got to organize).
Said Jah prophet has arise (prophet has arise),
He's gonna hit them by surprise (for them to centralize),
Hit them by surprise (they've got to organize).
Said Jah prophet has arise (prophet has arise)
He's, he's got a dread look in his eyes (dread look in his eyes),
Dread look in his eyes (for them to realize).
Prophet has arise.
Moses, Moses, Moses.
So the people shall never run short
Of a king or a prophet.
And they say,
So the people shall never run short
Of a king or a prophet.
Said Jah prophet, prophet has arise.
No way, no way.
Said Jah prophet has arise (prophet has arise)
He's got a dread look in his eyes (dread look in his eyes),
Sweet look in his eyes (for them to realize).
Jah prophet has arise (prophet has arise)
Oh, he's gonna hit them by surprise (for them to centralize),
Hit them by surprise (they've got to organize).
Jah prophet has arise (prophet has arise)
Prophet has arise,
Dread look in his eyes (dread look in his eyes)
Dread look in his eyes (for them to realize)
Jah prophet has arise (prophet has arise)
He...
The people shall never run short
Of a king or a prophet.
The people shall never run short
Of a king or a prophet.
The people shall never run short
Of a king or a prophet.
The people shall never run short
Of a king or a prophet.
The people shall never run short
Of a king or a prophet.
