(2) A weh dem a go do when the time comes around
A weh dent a go sek

Cos

My people are in a mess
But nobody wants to know
Cos when you're down and out and oppressed
You've got to fight your battles from the
Lowest of the low
So keep your distance and take your stance,
Cos this could be your utmost chance.

You've had all night and day to
Consider and pray
You've brought fire on my head and
Now you must pay.

CHORUS

Babylon makes the rules
Babylon makes the rules
Babylon makes the rules
Babylon makes the rules
where my people suffer...

Take Rastaman culture for instance,
Dem think is political joke,
But we people know better then that,
Cos what keeps us together is
Jah Herb that we smoke

I and I know the truth of it all,
Cos we have smashed our heads
'gainst that wall,
And now I seh we must create a scene,
We must recapture our culture
by any means.

CHORUS
Babylon makes the rules
Babylon makes the rules
Babylon makes the rules
Babylon makes the rules
where my people suffer ...

Count the times we've been let down,
And left us in despair,
And woe betide that evil man,
Who giveth not a care.
You've gotta check yourself just
One more time,
Reassure your mind -
Cos those who are chosen
by the father's hand
Must not get left behind.

Rasta seh - guidance
(4) But Backrah seh different still

Babylon makes the rules but
Jah love will carry I home.
