"Columbus" as written by and Winston Rodney....
I and I old I know
I and I old I say
I and I reconsider
I and I see upfully that
Christopher Columbus is a damn blasted liar
Christopher Columbus is a damn blasted liar
Yes Jah

He's saying that, he is the first one
Who discover Jamaica
I and I say that,
What about the Arawak Indians and the few Black man
Who were around here, before him
The Indians couldn't hang on no longer
Here comes first Black man and woman and children,
In a Jam Down Land ya
A whole heap of mix up and mix up
A whole heap a ben up, ben up,
We have fi straighten out,
Christopher Columbus is a damn blasted liar
Christopher Columbus is a damn blasted liar
Yes Jah

What a long way from home
I and I longing to go home
Within a Red, Green, and Gold Robe
Come on Twelve Tribe of Isreal
Come on Twelve Tribe of Isreal
Out a Jam Down land ya
A whole heap of mix up mix up
A whole heap a ben up, ben up,
Come on Twelve Tribe of Isreal
Come on Twelve Tribe of Isreal
Out a Jam Down land ya

Christopher Columbus is a damn blasted liar
Christopher Columbus is a damn blasted liar
Yes Jah, he is a liar
Yes Jah, he is a liar
Yes Jah, he is a liar
Columbus is a liar
Yes jah Christopher Columbus is a damn blasted liar
Columbus

    General Commentfuck chistopher columbus. the natives he encountered in san salvador brought him and his men food and water. among the goods they brought him was "a kind of dry leaf that they hold in great esteem".the herbs were rolled inside a leaf to form tubes the natives called 'tabaco'; a product that that would soon hook europeans and become one of america's most profitable exports. he wrote about them that "they would make good and skilled servants". when he didnt care to go ashore the native Caribs would swim out to the ships to greet them. they thought he had come from heaven. what did he do? he enslaved the them as prisoners what he called a "just" war, and sold them. he couldn't find any gold despite their attempts to point him to it. (remember their communication was limited to hand gestures) he then demanded they each give him an amount of gold dust or if they could not he demanded they give him their "canoa"; carved out tree trunk
    boats, or "hamaca". canoes and hammocks soon became part of the european lexicon.

    his first encounter with the natives of the new world was somewhat peaceful, but only a size-up of the exploitation that would ensue.

    back to the song. he is a damn blasted Liar! he didnt discover anything! he exploited and destroyed a beautiful culture. he reported to spain on how much riches they had, so that they could go back and take everything and rape their women.

    the capital of america, the state and about forty other u.s. cities should not even be named after this man. he should not be celebrated for taking advantage of a more spiritual natural earthly culture.
