Fears dangerous

But I know love is contagious

It made Garvey

And Bob Marley - famous

 

Leaders

Turn their followers into believers

And with time

We follow the guidelines

That they leave us

 

Through hardship

We’ve got to stick to the target

We’re not half-hearted men

We finish what we’ve started

 

We aim high

Taught

To never say die

Bless my ancestors

(Be)cause of them

I’m alive

 

And I

Wear the color of my skin with pride

Regardless

We always play

To win the prize

 

We we’re once kings

That may come as a surprise

But the past

Has putten a black - mark

On our lives

 

Got to go on to bigger and better things,

Leave something

To make our seeds blossom - come spring

 

Haven’t forgotten

Them rainy days

They made me the man I am

And I wouldn’t change

Even if I could -and I can
