Marcus Garvey's words come to pass
Marcus Garvey's words come to pass

Can't get no food to eat
Can't get no money to spend, woo
Can't get no food to eat
Can't get no money to spend, woo

Come, little one and let me do what I can do for you
And you and you alone come, little one, woo
Let me do what I can do for you and you alone, woo

He who knows the right thing and do it not
Shall be spanked with many stripes

Weeping and wailing and moaning
You've got yourself to blame, I tell you
Do right do right do right do right do right

Tell you to do right, woo
Beg you to do right, woo

Where is Bagawire
He's nowhere to be found, he can't be found
First betrayer who gave away Marcus Garvey
Son of Satan, First prophesy

Catch them, Garvey old
Catch them Garvey, catch them, woo
Hold them Marcus, hold them, woo
Marcus Garvey, Marcus, woo

Songwriters
RODNEY, WINSTON GODFREY
