Kabaka Pyramid - Too Long Lyrics


Too long in a Babylon yeah

Me really wah fi go a me yard

Me deh yah hitch up inna rome for too long, too long, too long
We hitch up inna Rome for too long too long
We hitch up inna Rome for too long too long, too long
We hitch up inna Rome for too long too long
Me wah fi go a me yard

Life it nuh ease we suffering
Every man a look visa fi go foreign
Mama cry pon har knees and she uttering
Please give me a little more pay
Pickney fi feed but a just famine
Better me grow trees fi di hustling
360 degrees and di struggling
Me check a stock and me pot not even bubbling

Me deh yah hitch up inna rome for too long, too long, too long
We hitch up inna Rome for too long too long
We hitch up inna Rome for too long too long, too long
We been up inna Rome for too long too long
Me wah fi go a me yard
Selassie I the first

I nuh see wah dem a fight against Rasta fah
A like dem nuh like see we prosper yah
Dem have we lock inna dem system
And fi see dat you nuh haffi be some type of philosofah
Dem fi know say a Africa fi Africans
And a fire me a dash inna di Vatican
Me wah fi left yah soh quicker dan the Taxi Man
Weh crash inna you back inna the traffic jam

Me deh yah hitch up inna rome for too long, too long, too long
We hitch up inna Rome for too long too long
We hitch up inna Rome for too long too long, too long
We hitch up inna Rome for too long too long
Me wah fi go a me yard

Mount Zion High
I can hear you calling
Babylon is falling, In a di morning
Mount Zion High Selassie I is the everything
Rastafari teach I everything
So never you mixed you in dem politics and lies
Babylon think dem wise
They're like the ticks and flies
Sucking on the blood of the poor
So long the people been chastise
Open your eyes and see
Itiophia calling
Rastafari yutes dem been waiting
Mama Africa is calling
Babylon is burning down

So never you go a stray
Your culture and your heritage never you throw away
Inna dis time yah you cannot move like a sheep that lost
I beg you listen what Selassie I say

Me deh yah hitch up inna rome for too long, too long, too long
We hitch up inna Rome for too long too long
We hitch up inna Rome for too long too long, too long
We hitch up inna Rome for too long too long
Me wah fi go a me yard
