"You're Better Off" as written by Miguel Collins and Phillip Burrell....
And I belong making this song for those young
And grown up children out there
I express my undying love for you all
Keep rising so, anticipating to let you know
All Jah love, is all for you, let you know

Love you for who you are and He knows what you are
'Cause love is good and hatred is so bad
Love you for who you are and not what you have
'Cause love is good and hatred that is so bad

Dirty heart people ya can't make me weak
Emperor Selassie-I me pray you haffe see it
Umm, bless the prophet, bless the King, bless the priest
And bless up all the strifing, youths inna the street
Oh Rastafari love we show, yes, Rastafari words we know
All my life, I'm gonna tell you so, yeah

Love you for who you are and not what you have
'Cause love is so good and hatred that is so bad
Love you for who you are and not what you have
'Cause hatred is so bad

Now, when you a beam then you better off
When you're pure and clean then you're better off
Ites, gold and green, then you're better off
Man a free, black supreme, yes, Selassie-I with Him, African Queen
Babylon is Satan torch them a carry
Poor people innocent blood them a carry

Hand crop, jail, and club them a carry
Tell I pull black man's vote, its drugs them a carry
When there world know is black love we a carry
Their privacy, is the sizzle-rance love dem carry
All day and them a trouble nobody
Watch out, Babylon can't tarry

Love you for who you are and not what you have
'Cause love is so good and hatred that is so bad
Love you for who you are and not what you have
'Cause love is so good and hatred that is so bad

Woah yeah, so you better off
When you clean and pure, then you're better off
When you stand up and you pure, then you're better off
When you love Jah Jah more, then you're better off

Righteousness fe ya core, then you're better off
When you live up really high, then you're better off
When ya praise Selassie-I, then you're better off
Burn them Pharisees and burn them spite in oil

And I love you for who you are and not what you have
'Cause love is so good and hatred that is so bad

Dirty heart people can't stop me from strive
Oh, Rastafari open up our eyes
Woah yeah, them never can disguise firelight

Love you for who you are and not what you have
'Cause love is so good and hatred that is so bad

Ghetto youths say you know, so you better off
When you're pure and clean, then you're better off
And you reign black supreme haffe better off
Ites, gold and green, then you're better off

Rasta love that run the scheme, bet you're better off
King Selassie and a rebel, then you're better off
When you burn out the devil, then you're better off
Make some music and bounce pon the bass and the treble

Love you for who you are and not what you have
But love is so good, yeah, remember that hatred that is so bad
Love you for who you are and He knows what you are
