Caan Hold Us Down - Lyrics

This one is real
Yo, a Daddy Rings, Gentleman and Barrington Levy
Babylon a watch, we 'round the clock
Wondering when we gonna launch and attack

No powers gonna hold us down
Not even dem peagon sound
No powers gonna hold us down
You'll never see we wearing a frown

No powers gonna hold us down
Not even dem peagon sound
No powers gonna hold us down
You'll never see we wearing a frown

I've been chanting Jah powers from morning
Truths and rights, I man keep performing
I hear the Babylon bell, how it alarming
Dem see a righteous ghetto youth and ready fi swarm him

Dem shoulda overstand the power wha Jah storm bring
When it blow the whole a dem hafi go calm king
Long time we did a issue 'bout the warning
We ago hold Lucifer and disarm him

I know Jah will always be there
And I know he is everywhere
Without Jah, where would I be?
And he is the one for me, you see

No powers gonna hold us down
Not even dem peagon sound
No powers gonna hold us down
You'll never see we wearing a frown

No powers gonna hold us down
Not even dem peagon sound
No powers gonna hold us down
You'll never see we wearing a frown

Dem think we fool but we tell dem seh we not
Caan make no wulf come invate the flag
Nuh get caught ina no boobie trap
I and I royal natty dreadlock

Well as the sun shine and the wind blow
That's how I know, that's how I know
I take a look through my window
That's how I know, that's how I know

If you nuh know the truth yourself you are deceiving
Trumpet a sound and I man is leaving
Higher ground that is where I am going
Too bless to stress can't stop me from growing

No powers gonna hold us down
Not even dem peagon sound
No powers gonna hold us down
You'll never see we wearing a frown

No powers gonna hold us down
Not even dem peagon sound
No powers gonna hold us down
You'll never see we wearing a frown
