Feel it in the one drop
And we'll still find time to rap
We're making the one stop
The generation gap
So feel this drum beat
As it beats within
Playing a rhythm resisting against the system
Ooh-we I know Jah'd never let us down
Pull your rights from wrong
I know Jah'd never let us down
Oh no! oh no! oh no!

They made the world so hard
Everyday we got to keep on fighting
Everyday the people are dying
From hunger and starvation, lamentation
But read it in Revelation
You'll find your redemption
And then you give us the teaching of His Majesty
For we no want no devil philosophy

Feel it on the one drop
And we still find time to rap
We're making the one stop
And we fill in the gap
So feel this drum beat
As it beats within, playing a rhythm
Fighting against ism and skism

    General Comment:One drop takes me to the parable of Lazarus and the rich man. He pleaded for just one drop of the living water so that he may be quenched and his spirit have life again. The gap between lazarus (Gentile who had faitj in Christ) and the rich man(old testament israel) is time here on earth. The gap is almost filled and all of Abraham's descendants will be blessed through faith in Christ. One drop. We all have at least one drop of Abraham's blood. We will recieve life through walking with Christ here on earth. The lost tribes are remembering and feeling it in the one drop
