A time will come when every fig tree
Shall find it's own vine

A time will come when every fig tree
Shall find it's own vine
That's the only solution
To end all these crimes

They took us away from Africa
On a rocking ship
Then brought us to Jamaica
On a heavy heavy dinner ship
So open the gate

So open the gate
Before it's too late
I pray

So open the gate
Before it's too late
I say

A time will come when every fig tree
Shall find it's own vine
That's the only solution
To end all these crimes

They say bide up Rastaman
For the time is at hand

They say bide up African
For the time is at hand

A time will a come
They say a time will a come

A time will come when every fig tree
Shall find it's own vine
That's the only solution
To end all these crimes

They took us away from Africa
On a rocking ship
Then brought us to Jamaica
On a heavy heavy dinner ship
So open the gate

They say bide up Rastaman
For the time is at hand
