Jah Jah Deh Deh Lyrics

Jah Jah Deh Deh by Patrice  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Jah Jah Deh Deh Say Jah Jah deh deh
no matter wha’ dem a say
Jah deh deh,
yes him deh deh, no matter wha’ dem a say
Jah deh deh,
well again again
Ooh na na na na na na na

Tell me is it dem or is it me.
Is it the bird wha’ deh ina di tree
Is it the fish wha’ swim ina di sea,
Is it the willow wha’ carry birds and bees.
No it’s none of dem deh things indeed,
It’s rather fi dem Babylon technology.
Ah rather dem sky scrapers and fi dem streets
Ah the nerve centres of fi dem cities,
where mind-slaves ah run tings fi we

But Patrice Lumumba na go rest in peace,
Steven Biko na go rest in peace,
Kwame Nkrumah na go rest in peace,
Marcus Garvey na go rest in peace,
Malcolm X ‘im na go rest in peace
Mahatma Gandhi na go rest in peace
burying their bodies was like burying seeds
Ina fi we babies I can see dem creep,
Ina fi we mothers I can hear them weep
Out of the mouths of the sufferers I can hear them scream.
Hear dem scream!

Chorus
Say Jah Jah deh deh
no matter wha’ dem a say
Jah deh deh,
yes I’m deh deh, no matter wha’ dem a say
Jah deh deh,
well again again
Ooh na na na na na na na

The things wha’ you a own end up owning you,
the things wha’ you a clone end up cloning you.
The things wha’ you a show end up showing in you
any time you a fling a stone it end up hitting you.
The things wha’ you possess end up possessing you
you claim seh you a progress
but you na progress fi true.
You claim seh you are so blessed
but you are cursed fi true,
cos what comes first, last in you

Chorus

Say Jah Jah deh deh
no matter wha’ dem a say
Jah deh deh,
yes him deh deh, no matter wha’ dem a say
Jah deh deh,
Tell me is it dem or is it me.
Is it the bird wha’ deh ina di tree
Is it the fish wha’ swim ina di sea,
Is it the willow wha’ carry birds and bees.
No it’s none of dem deh things indeed,
It’s rather fi dem Babylon technology.
Ah rather dem sky scrapers and fi dem streets
Ah the nerve centres of fi dem cities,
where mind-slaves ah run tings fi we

But Patrice Lumumba na go rest in peace,
Steven Biko na go rest in peace,
Kwame Nkrumah na go rest in peace…
