water and oil lyrics – ziggy marley

dem try fi hold, hold wha dem can’t conquer
rastaman no mix up with no vagavanga
dem try fi hold, hold wha dem can’t conquer
rastaman no mix up with no vagavanga
they want to condemn the innocent
for crimes which we did not commit
they want to get good people mix up
in their bag of tricks
but water and oil can’t mix
water and oil don’t mix
water and oil can’t mix
water and oil don’t mix
say, dem try fi hold, hold wha dem can’t conquer
rastaman no mix up with no vagavanga
say, dem try fi hold, hold wha dem can’t conquer
rastaman no mix up with no vagavanga
hear this, nah go like the son if you no like the father
true we manifest under the same order
c*ck your ears and listen me want you hear ya part ya
but first come in papa ziggy as the eldest brother
yes i hear the lies they’ve told
dem says rasta did this and this
what is the politician role
is it to create conflicts
but water and oil can’t mix
water and oil don’t mix
water and oil can’t mix, no
water and oil don’t mix
jah who i praise break your silence
now that the wicked is accusing
attacking for no reason
all we did was pray for them
now the way things happen fast
some things me nah go member
but the day did cool, cool and collective lya
next thing me know some unwanted visitors
some devil worshiping rasta hating cold blooded murdera
never get wha dem expect dem expect lamb fi slaughter
hear this, this is ragam*ffin and him hitting harder
we get up from weh we sit down to a strategic corner
men and the bwoy dem eye mek four me mek a nervous swallow
prip around from left to right me look pon all me brother
hold me head to the sky and make a final prayer
zoom, zoom, and everything take cover
look how fast lightning rod back out in all a dem face
quick, me back out me no member wha it name
them never know the youth them would not lose them faith
through the grace of the father everything set straight
but water and oil can’t mix, no
water and oil don’t mix
water and oil can’t mix, no
water and oil don’t mix
water and oil can’t mix
