(Spoken tape fx)
"To sail from Africa to Jamaica the fastest ships took seven weeks
With the wind against them the voyage took up to three months
Security Saddam Hussein style "

Sleep, sleep now baby
Cry, cry no more baby

"Mabrika mabrika cari funa" (phonetic Carib)

(Spoken tape fx)
"Love be within I walls and prosperity be within I palaces
The cause of the house of the living I Jah Rastafari
That is why we think the music is very important
It's the music that actually summons up the spirits
Same One Love same One Blood
Oh yes he was well liked
He was beloved of all"

Sleep, sleep now baby
Cry, cry no more baby

And the generals won't let you go
You dig the diamonds and you find the gold
It's magic
Bush doctors in the market square
So many preparations to compare
It's magic
See the missionary make amends
See the profit justify the ends
It's magic
See the sun it sets a shanty smile
To gather water gotta walk ten miles
It's tragic
