"big mountain" as written by and Mutabaruka Allan Hope....
REDMAN REDMAN
YUH AFI FIGHT FI YUH LAN
JUS LIKE DE DAYS OF OLD
YOU'LL HAVE TO BE COLD AND BOLD

dont let the witeman tongue fool u
dont let his paper cool u
with tricks and lies he stole the land
refuse and resist the witeman plan

stand on big mountain its your ancestors earth
land is power without it life has no worth
stand on big mountain you'll have to be strong
good must over come the struggle is long

he came to turtle island with fire water in hand
gave it to the redman
then stole his land
gave us a image of indians so wild
the image we got on the screen as a child
who is to blame who is to blame
i say the image of john wayne

dont let the witeman tongue fool u
dont let his paper cool u
dont let his fire water get u down
stand up and fight for your piece of ground

stand on big mountain its your ancestors earth
land is power without it life has no worth
stand on big mountain you'll have to be strong
good must over come the struggle is long

in afrika and asia he went to civilize nations
yet in the land of liberty and justice he has reservation
on the big screen he played his silly game
usin the image of john wayne
robbin and rapin he stole the land
refuse ahd resist the witeman plan

dont let the witeman tongue fool u
dont let his papers cool u
dont let the ancestors die in vain
u have nothin to loose much to gain

stand on big mountain its your ancestors earth
land is power without it life has no worth
stand on big mountain you'll have to be strong
good must over come the struggle is long
