Downpressor man
Where you gonna run to?
Downpressor man
Where you gonna run to?

Downpressor man
Where you gonna run to?
All along that day

You gonna run to the sea
But the sea will be boiling
When you run to the sea
The sea will be boiling

When you run to the sea
The sea will be boiling
All along that day

You gonna run to the rocks
The rocks will be melting
When you run to the rocks
The poor rocks will be melting

When you run to the rocks
The rocks will be melting
I said, all along that day

So I said, downpressor man
Where you gonna run to?
I said, downpressor man
Where you gonna run to?

I said, downpressor man
Where you gonna run to?
All along that day

You drink your big champagne and laugh
Ha ha ha ha ha ha
You drink your big champagne and laugh
(Downpressor man)
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

You drink your big champagne and laugh
(Downpressor man)
Ha ha
All along that day

I wouldn't like to be a flea
Under your collar man
I wouldn't like to be a flea
Under your collar man

I wouldn't like to be a flea
Under your collar
All along that day

You can run but you can't hide
You can run but you can't hide
You can run but you can't hide
Telling you all along that day

You gonna run to the Lord
Begging Him to hide you
You gonna run to the Lord
Begging Him to hide you

You gonna run to Jah
Begging Him to hide you
(All along the day)
All, all along the day

And I say downpressor man
Where you gonna run to
Where you gonna run to

Downpressor man
Where you gonna run to
(Downpressor man)
I said all along, along that day
(Downpressor man)

(Downpressor man)
Downpressor man
Downpressor man
(Downpressor man)
Downpressor man
Downpressor man

Where, downpressor man
Where you gonna run to?
Downpressor man

I don't know where you gonna run to
All along that day
Downpressor man, you can't run
You can't bribe Jah Jah

Can't call him in a bar
You can drink some baby soup
Can't bribe him around the corner
Can't [Incomprehensible]

Downpressor man, Lord
(Downpressor man)
Downpressor man
I said, downpressor man
(Downpressor man)
Don't run, downpressor man

Downpressor man
Where you gonna run to?
Downpressor man

You can't bribe no one
(Downpressor man)
Them no want no money
[Incomprehensible] money
(Downpressor man)
'Cause money get funny
(Downpressor man)
