See di yout' dem a chant an' prance
Dem a ready to play dis dance
Running from the hill like a burning lance
To the valley of abundance

So many voices on the same riddim
Singing louder than the sound system
So many colors comin'out of concrete
Come we go downtown, come we go shout on mainstreet

Dances of resistance
Push! push! Fi give justice a chance
Dances of resistance
Push! push! Fi mek turn di balance

See dem are scornin' on that movement
Dem think we don't know the rules we just can't understand
But we know
We are firm an' confident
We know for which battle we stand

Dem will not deceive us again with false pretence
Get outta control, get outta control
Stop that train this is self-defense
Get outta control, get outta control
Get outta control, get outta control

Dances of resistance
Push! push! Fi give justice a chance
Dances of resistance
Push! push! Fi mek turn di balance

No work for capitalism, no work fi communisim
No deal patriotism, fundamentalism
An' ya isim an' ya isim an' ya skisim an' ya cheatin' an a lyin'
All dis a skatta racism

Clear up my mind an' give some sense
To what I feel deep down in my conscience
What can I do? What can I do?
I don't know what to do, tell me what to do
But there is so much things to do, so much things to do
But there is so much things to do, so much things to do

Dances of resistance
Push! push! Fi give justice a chance
Dances of resistance
Push! push! Fi mek turn di balance

Dem a ruff an' tuff girls an' boys
Side by side in joyful noise
Some a dem come and play trumpet an' tuba
Some a dem come and drum it inna batucada
Drum it!

Get outta control, get outta control
Get outta control, get outta control

Dances of resistance
Push! push! Fi give justice a chance
Dances of resistance
Push! push! Fi mek turn di balance
