Chant Down Babylon

Album: Confrontation (1983)
  • Come we go burn down Babylon one more time
    (Come we go burn down Babylon one more time)
    Come we go chant down Babylon one more time
    (Come we go chant down Babylon)
    For them soft! Yes, them soft! (ah-yoy!)
    Them soft! Yes, them soft! (ah-yoy!)
    So come we go chant down Babylon one more time
    (Come we go chant down Babylon)!

    Men see their dreams and aspiration-a
    Crumble in front of their face,
    And all of their wicked intention
    To how I know: A Reggae Music, mek we chant down Babylon
    With music, mek we chant down Babylon
    This music, mek we chant down Babylon
    This music, come we chant down Babylon
    Come we go chant down Babylon one more time
    (Come we go chant down Babylon one more time)
    Come we go chant down Babylon one more time
    (Come we go chant down Babylon)

    For them soft! Yes, them soft! (ah-yoy!)
    Them soft! Me say, them soft! (ah-yoy!)
    So come we go chant down Babylon one more time
    (Come we go chant down Babylon)!
    Me say, Music you're - music you're the key
    Talk to who? Please talk to me, bring the voice of the Rastaman
    Communicating to - 'cating to everyone
    How I (know) - how I know, how I (know) - how I know
    And that's how I know
    A Reggae Music, chant down - chant down - chant down Babylon
    Chant down Babylon, chant down Babylon, chant down Babylon!

    Reggae Music, chant down Babylon!
    Reggae Music, chant down Babylon!
    Reggae Music, chant down Babylon!
    Reggae Music, chant down Babylon!
    Reggae Music! (chant down Babylon) /fadeout/ Writer/s: BOB MARLEY
