uprising
we and dem
we no know how we and dem a-go work this out, oy!
we no know how we and dem a-go work it out.

but someone will ‘ave to pay
for the innocent blood
that they shed every day,
oh, children, mark my word;
it’s what the bible say, yeah! yeah!

oh, we no know how we and dem a-go work this out;
we no know how we and dem a-go work it out.

but in the beginning jah created everythin’ (oo-oo-oo-oo-ooh),
givin’ man dominion over all things.
but now it’s too late,
you see, men has lost their faith (oo-oo-oo-oo-ooh), hey-ey-hey!
eating up all the flesh from off the earth, eh!

we no know how we and dem a-go work this out (we no know);
we no know how we and dem a-go work this out (no, we don’t know);
dub-da-dub-da-dub!
dub-a-dippidi-doop-de-doo!
nim-a-nummany num-na-noo!
num-a-nummana-num-da-nay!
dippy-dippy-dippy: dip-de-dub-de-day!
dip-a-dubbada-dub-da-day!

but i say: we no know how we and dem a-go work it out:
them a flesh and bone!
we no know how we and dem a-go work it out.

but we now have no friends
in-a high society, yea-a-eah!
we no have no friends;
oh, mark my ident*ty;
we no have no friends. oh-oh! yeah!

we no know how we and dem a-go work this out (no, we no know);
we no know how we and dem a-go work this out (we no know);
we no know how we and dem a-go work it out (no, we don’t know);
(we no know how we and dem a-go work this out.) rasta!
(we no know how we and dem a-go work this out.) ilyabom! /fadeout/
