"Reggae Fi Radni" as written by and Linton Kwesi Johnson....
You nuh see how de clou' them jus' came sit upon me dream
came sit upon me dream like a dark silk screen
a dark silk screen over de vision I had seen
vision I had seen, the vision I had seen
So me say that Walter Radni was a victim of hate
someone say that him gone thru heaven's gate
someone that Walter Radni shouldn't tek up his true weight
an' go carry 'pon 'im back like 'im de weary man a rock
But look how de clou' dem jus' came sat upon me dream
came sit upon me dream like a shout or a scream
a shout or a scream or a really ugly scene
that awake me from the dream an' alert me to the scheme
So me say that Walter Radni was a prisoner of fate
someone say that him gone thru de hero's gate
someone say that Walter Radni couldn't tek his true weight
so 'im tek it off 'im back an' go pick it 'pon 'im lap
an' go fall in a trap, an' Sam Burnham get it drop
But look how me dream come jus' get blown to smithereen
came blown to smithereen ina de miggle of the dream
Miggle of the dream before de peeple dem come in
peeple dem come in, the peeple dem come in
So me say that Walter Radni was no shark fi de sea
An' all that him did wan' was fi set 'im peeple free
Wi' de workers an' de peasan's him should a corporate
But like a fish to de hook, 'im go bite 'pon Burnham bait
You nuh see how me dream come jus' get blown to smithereen
An' blown to smithereen ina de miggle of the dream
Miggle of the dream before de really crucial scene
the really crucial scene when the peeple dem come in
