slave driver lyrics – bob marley

ooh-ooh-oo-ooh. oo-oo-ooh! oo-oo-ooh.
slave driver, the table is turn; (catch a fire)
catch a fire, so you can get burn, now. (catch a fire)
slave driver, the table is turn; (catch a fire)
catch a fire: gonna get burn. (catch a fire) wo, now!

ev’rytime i hear the crack of a whip,
my blood runs cold.
i remember on the slave ship,
how they brutalize the very souls.
today they say that we are free,
only to be chained in poverty.
good god, i think it’s illiteracy;
it’s only a machine that makes money.
slave driver, the table is turn, y’all. ooh-ooh-oo-ooh.

slave driver, uh! the table is turn, baby, now; (catch a fire)
catch a fire, so you can get burn, baby, now. (catch a fire)
slave driver, the table is turn, y’all; (catch a fire)
catch a fire: so you can get burn, now. (catch a fire)

ev’rytime i hear the crack of a whip,
my blood runs cold.
i remember on the slave ship,
how they brutalize the very soul.

o god, have mercy on our souls!
oh, slave driver, the table is turn, y’all; (catch a fire)
catch a fire, so you can get burn. (catch a fire)
slave driver, the table is turn, y’all; (catch a fire)
catch a fire … /fadeout/
