    So u lock them down and u think that you’ve won

    Chorus:
    But dem ah hole a mediation (Dem ah hold a mediation)
    Out inna I-ration (out inna I-ration)
    Dem a follow Rastafari and a live, ah live out right
    So tell me whe u a go do now (So tell me whe u a go do)
    Tell me wat u gonna do now (Tell me wat u gonna do)
    Tell me wat u gonna do now that di youth ah hold dem roots
    You can’t water down and dilute
    You can’t hide di trut from di yout
    You can steal di fruit not the root
    Cos di yout ah hold dem roots

    Hey yeah yeaa..oh ohh (instrumental)

    Out inna I-ration (out inna I-ration)
    Dem a follow Rastafari and a live, ah live out right
    So tell me whe u a go do now (So tell me whe u a go do)
    Tell me wat u gonna do now (Tell me wat u gonna do)
    Tell me wat u gonna do now that di youth ah hold dem roots

    You can steal di fruit not the root
    Cos di yout ah hold dem roots

    But di youths dem nah feel it
    Come around with ur white lies trying to blind everyone’s eyes

    Chorus:
    But dem ah hole a mediation (Dem ah hold a mediation)
    Out inna I-ration (out inna I-ration)
    Dem a follow Rastafari and a live, ah live out right
    So tell me whe u a go do now (So tell me whe u a go do)
    Tell me wat u gonna do now (Tell me wat u gonna do)
    Tell me wat u gonna do now that di youth ah hold dem roots
