"Jah Jah Deh Deh" as written by and Patrice Bart-williams....
Say Jah Jah deh deh
No matter way dem a say
Jah deh deh
Yes him deh deh
No matter way dem a say
Jah deh deh
Well again again
Ooh na na na na na na na

Tell me is it dem or is it me?
Is it the bird which diggin ina da tree?
Is it the fish which swimin ina da sea?
Is it the willow which carry birds and breeze
No it's none of dem things indeed
Is rather fi dem Babylon technology
A rather dem sky scrapers a na fi dem street
At de nervecentre a fi dem city
Where mindslaves a run tings for we

But Patrice Lumumba na go rest in peace
Steven Biko na go rest in peace
Kwame Nkrumah na go rest in peace
Marcus Garvey na go rest in peace
Malcolm X na go rest in peace
And Mahatma Gandhi na go rest in peace
Burying thier bodys was like burying seeds
in a fi we baby I can see dem creap
And in dem fi mothers I can see dem weep
Out of dem mouth de sufferer
I can hear them scream
Here dem scream!

Jah Jah deh deh
No matter way dem a say
Jah deh deh
Yes him deh deh
No matter way dem a say
Jah deh deh
Well again again
Ooh na na na na na na na

The things you are own and up owning you
The things you are clone and up cloning you
The things you showing and up showing you
Any time you a fling a stone it and up hitting you
The things you are processing and are processing you
You claim say you a progress but you na progress for true
You claim say you a blessed but you a cursed for true
'Cos what comes first is last in you

Jah Jah deh deh
No matter way dem a say
Jah deh deh yes him deh deh
No matter way dem a say
Jah deh deh well again again
Ooh na na na na na na na

Tell me is it dem or is it me
Is it the bird which diggin ina da tree
Is it the fish which swimin ina da sea
Is it the willow which carry birds and breeze
Oh No it's none of dem things indeed
is rather fi dem Babylon technology
A rather dem sky scrapers a na fi dem streets
at de nervecentre a fi dem city
Where mindslaves a run tings for we

But Patrice Lumumba na go rest in peace
Yo Markus Garvey na go rest in peace
Mhhh Nkrumah na go rest in peace
