The stone that the builder refuse
Will always be the head cornerstone-a; sing it brother
The stone that the builder refuse
Will always be the head cornerstone.

You're a builder, baby;
Here I am, a stone.
Don't you pick and refuse me,
'Cause the things people refuse
Are the things they should choose.
Do you 'ear me? Hear what I say!

Stone that the builder refuse
Will always be the head cornerstone-a; tell me why
The stone that the builder refuse, yeah! -
Will always be the head cornerstone.

You're a builder, baby;
Wo, here I am, a stone!
Don't you pick and refuse me,
'Cause the tings people refuse
Are the things they should use;
The things people refuse
Are the things they should use.
Do you 'ear me? Hear what I say!

Stone dat them builder refuse
Will always be the head cornerstone-a;
The stone that dem builder refuse
Will always be the head cornerstone.

Stone dat them builder refuse
Will always be the head cornerstone-a;
The stone that dem builder refuse
Will always be the head cornerstone.

    General Commentthis song is talking about how the people and things that are left over or left out are the most important, it says the things people refuse are the things they should use and that means treat everybody alike.

    General Comment19Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God's people and members of God's household, 20built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. 21In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord.
    ephesians 19-21

    6For in Scripture it says:
    "See, I lay a stone in Zion,
    a chosen and precious cornerstone,
    and the one who trusts in him
    will never be put to shame."[a] 7Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe,
    "The stone the builders rejected
    has become the capstone
    1 Peter 2:6-7

    Song MeaningWhen Bob Marley went to his father's company to ask about money for his new car, he got rejected, they didin't belive him that he was son of Norval Marley. He felt like a rejected stone. So he wrote this song. "The stone that the builder refuse will always be the head cornerstone."
