Stephen Marley ft Capleton & Sizzla – Rockstone Lyrics

 

(Listen Chorus)

(Verse 1)
Rock stone was my builder couldn’t find place fi sleep
Pop dem head wi haffi find food fi eat
Everyday wi terrorize by soldier and police
When the thing dem a drum and thing dem a beat
From dem a play cow boy, and Indian, and Chief
From the first, to the third, straight up to seven street
One thing in a wi mind a fi jump wid the beat
And meck it in a life, and inherit, and delete

Better the stone dem deh yah
Self employ, cannot get lay off
Mount a work mi have cant even get a day off
Who did waan fi stop mi now dem find out seh dem way off
Alright and mi seh one by one, one by one
One by one wi stepping out a babylon

Then one by one, one by one
Hail King Selassie High the cankering lion

(Listen Chorus)

(Verse 2)
Help us now
Take us from the slum
Never keep a bottle while strictly fire burn
Tare us down, take us from the slum
Never keep on matter while king Selassie High blessing come
Sufferation is thing could be no harder time
Got to wise in your views caw they broader your mind
Watch the voice in the ghetto now where else can you find
Hunger, Poverty, a teach dem so unkind
As a matter a fact, there is a after shock
When the ground was my bed and my pillow was a rock
Try to make it through the system all the doors were lock
Yea nothing beat a…..so I ain’t go stop
Mount a time they write a book on yo
Or set another crock they would a put on yuh
Yet when yuh in to dept they wouldn’t look on yuh
They would only stand and wanna wipe the foot on yuh

Mi nah lie, true mi hail King Selassie High dem waan fi war I
Read mi bible through the week and praise the fari
Good bye babylon good bye, good bye
Open door, zion door
Mount zion Ethiopia for sure
Children of Israel, children of Israel

(Repeat Chorus)

(Listen Verse 3)
