Beenie Man - Jerusalem

Woh deh deh, oh Lord
Woh these words, these words of thy mouth
Woh deh deh, woh these words, yes now

I lift my head unto the Almighty God
He showed me what I had, He said
Stand firm and beat thy drums
An' prepare all thy children of Israel
Then wait for thy coming d-a-a-a-y

So I beat the kette drum
And mek it sound inna Jerusalem
And echo 'round a Jordan, dan, dan, dan
Beat the kette drum an 'mek it sound inna Bethlehem
Echo up inna Zion

So man me beat the kette, kette
Beat the kette drum cah man a no streggae, streggae
From the kette drum unno get the reggae, reggae
People dem a come an' all a say, say, say, say
Never know say shocking vibes did deh deh, deh deh
Africans a sing a lot a yelleh, yelleh
Beat the kette drum an' mek we
Woh, nigh, nigh, Bingi man a come an' dem a
Woh, nigh, nigh, Africans a come an' dem a
Woh, nigh, nigh that's why me sing say

Beat the kette drum
And mek it sound inna Jerusalem
And echo back 'round a Jordan, dan, dan
Beat the kette drum an 'mek it sound inna Bethlehem
And echo back inna Zion

So bingi man a beat the kette drum, knock the kette drum
Lick the kette drum, Congo man deh come down
Kick the kette drum, knock the kette drum
Lick the kette drum, Gad man a come
Marcus Garvey was a prophet, but him still diss the king
Call the king all a coward, and fly a flag 'gainst him
Marcus Garvey face death, a could a Judgement tek him
But Selassie I done did bless him
But 1966 when the king come visit
'Ole heap a kette drum a beat, a Rastaman a beat it
Twelve tribe from Israel, Gad man dem start it
Watch the Bobo Dread come, come join it
Well house a dread a come

Beat the kette drum, knock the kette drum
Beat the kette drum, bingi man deh come down
Lick the kette drum, bust the kette drum
Knock the kette drum, Congo man deh come down

Fi beat the kette drum an' mek it sound inna Jerusalem
An' echo up inna Jordan, dan, dan
Kick the kette drum an' mek it sound inna Bethlehem
An' echo up inna Zion, one more time
Beat the kette drum an' mek it sound inna Jerusalem
Echo back 'round a Jordan dan, dan
Lick the kette drum an' mek it sound inna bethelem
Woh Lord, Lord, woh nigh

Woh, all sons of Selassie I me a talk
If unno love the reggae music, mek the kette drum talk
Indian a beat the kette drum when a war
Ethiopian a answer back from far
Now Jamaicans a beat the kette inna dance
People all a jump an' prance
But hear me sing

Beat the kette drum, knock the kette drum
Gimme the kette drum till morning come down
Lick the kette drum, knock the kette drum
Gimme the kette drum till a morning come

I lift my head unto the almighty..
