CHORUS
A dis ya version
A no King James version
'Cause out of Africa
Came the Garden of Eden

Hidden from me I was never told
Ancient prophets black and gold
Like Daniel, King David and Abraham
Israel were all black men
I don't wanna lose you

Japhet tried his best to erase
The godly parts we played
I says he came and took
And never mention in his book... so

CHORUS
A dis ya version
A no King James version
'Cause out of Africa
Came the Garden of Eden

In Esau's chapter of history
So little mention of you and me
We rulers of kingdoms and dynasties
Explored this Earth for centuries
I don't wanna lose ya
Phoenicians, Egyptians and the Moors
Built civilisation, that's for sure
Creators of the alphabet
While the West illiterate..yeh

CHORUS
A dis ya version
A no King James version
'Cause out of Africa
Came the Garden of Eden

African heritage
I don't wanna lose ya
Oh, no

Slavery came and took its toll
In the name of John Bull Dog
Said we turned our backs on God
Lost the powers that we had
Now our backs against the wall
Ask ourselves about the fall
Rise rise rise
Hold on to your culture

CHORUS
A dis ya version
A no King James version
'Cause out of Africa
Came the Garden of Eden

I don't wanna lose ya
I don't wanna lose ya
Never let them fool you
