"Stop Live in a de Pass" as written by Moses Anthony Davis and Sly Dunbar....
When yuh live in the past
Yuh lost
(Blessed, blessed)
Yuh better walk on the right path
Big life, liberty, straight up
Mankind what me sing
(Sung)

Memories don't live like people do
They always 'member you
Whether things are good or bad
It's just the memories that you have
The Beenie Man a sing
(Say hey)

Boy, stop live down inna de past
Just member when man a ride 'orse
Now yuh dead that mean yuh soul lost
Crushed like a serpent snake under grass
(Again)

Boy, stop live down inna de past
Just member when man a ride 'orse
Body between di board head peep through the glass
Crushed like a serpent snake under grass

Meg, peg, Dis a man yuh dead
Way back inna di west before dem lick Jango head
For a few more dollars 'nother one dead
High plains drifter man ah fled
(I sing)

Too much wickedness
Down inna di west, down inna di west
While a Apache form dem nest, dem nest
Outlaw Josey Wale, get vexed
(Get vexed)

All bounty hunter dem draw fi dem vest
(Dem vest)
Gold an diamond wicked man intercept
(Intercept)
Pack up mi saddle and decide to make a flex
Way back inna di future
Where me have to make a step
(All sing along)

Memories don't live like people do
They always 'member you
Whether things are good or bad
It's just the memories that you have
The Beenie Man a sing
(Say hey)

Boy, stop live down inna de past
Just member when man a ride 'orse
Now yuh dead that mean yuh soul lost
Crushed like a serpent snake under grass
(Again)

Boy, stop live down inna de past
Just member when man a ride 'orse
Body between di board head peep through the glass
Crushed like a serpent snake under grass

I cyaan believe or understand
Why some man approach with white man tradition
Talk 'bout dem a Cowboy and Indian
Me a African an me born black ,an

And a who upon di mic di fabulous Beenie Man
Some mawga skinny and same cranky one
Talking lyric to all di nation
(All sing along)

Memories don't live like people do
They always 'member you
Whether things are good or bad
It's just the memories that you have
The Beenie Man a sing
(Say hey)

Boy, stop live down inna de past
Just member when man a ride 'orse
Now yuh dead that mean yuh soul lost
Crushed like a serpent snake under grass
(Again)

Boy, stop live down inna de past
Just member when man a ride 'orse
Body between di board head peep through the glass
Crushed like a serpent snake under grass

What I caan understand
Why some man ah revere white man tradition
Talk 'bout dem a Cowboy and Indian
Like dem no respect dem complexion

Mi black and mi ugly, Africa me come from
One day yuh got to return to dat land
Selassie I, me praise
Its here me make mi stand
(So sing along)

Memories don't live like people do
They always 'member you
Whether things are good or bad
It's just the memories that you have
The Beenie Man a sing
(Say hey)

Boy, stop live down inna de past
Just member when man a ride 'orse
Now yuh dead that mean yuh soul lost
Crushed like a serpent snake under grass
(Again)

Boy, stop live down inna de past
Just member when man a ride 'orse
Body between di board head peep through the glass
Crushed like a serpent snake under grass
