Marcus Garvey
Burning Spear Lyrics


Marcus Garvey's words come to pass
Marcus Garvey's words come to pass

Can't get no food to eat
Can't get no money to spend
Wo-oh-oh can't get no food to eat
Can't get no money to spend
Wo-oh-oh

Come, little one and let me do what I can for you
And you and you alone
Come, little one come, wo-oh-oh
Let me do what I can do for you and you alone, wo-oh-oh

You know the right and do heed might
Shall be spanked with many stripes

Weeping and wailing and moaning
You've got yourself to blame, I tell you

Do right, do right, do right, do right, do right
Do right, do right, do right, do right, do right, do right
I beg you wo-oh-oh
Tell you to do right
Beg you to do right
Wo-oh-oh

Where is bag of wire, he's nowhere around
He can't be found
First betrayer who gave away Marcus Garvey
Son of Satan, first prophesy
Catch them, Garvey wo-oh-oh
Hold them Marcus, hold them
prophesy fufill wo-oh-oh
Catch them, Garvey, catch them
Hold them Marcus, hold them
wo-oh-oh
Marcus Garvey, Marcus
Words come with a promisse wo-oh-oh

Marcus Garvey words some to pass, 2020, here in Brooklyn NYC.

Marcus was a prophet, his words are coming true. White man in Ireland. Fight against hatred. fight against racism, we are one people, with one destiny, together we stand, we are a small axe but we fell big tree.

I can't stop playing "Marcus Garvey" I love this song I have it in the car and the house every time I play the CD I start with this song.

Abraham Smith

The version on Live from 1977 is my favourite version of this track... got atmosphere in bucketloads.

Marcus Garvey should be taught in all American public schools.. Im latino and he me taught self pride. Knowledge of self and self preservation.

Anna Steadman

Amen
