rasta tell dem

From long time Rasta we did tell dem

Upon the harp and psaltery we did tell dem, ahhhh

Long time Rasta tell dem

True Rasta tell dem

Well Rasta tell dem

Oh Rasta we did tell dem

Upon the harp and psaltery we did tell dem, ahhhh

it's all about sincerity and honesty

Communication it can solve so much adversity

So many people stay caught up in a fantasy

I am not perfect but Jah I aspire to be

Asking what the lesson be

Even as a man was born to be

Equally flesh and spiritual we've always been

Perfectly balanced in the center how we ought to be

From long time Rasta we did tell dem

Upon the harp and psaltery we did tell dem, ahhhh

Long time Rasta tell dem

True Rasta tell dem

Well Rasta tell dem

Oh Rastafari we did tell dem

Upon the harp and psaltery we did tell dem, ahhhh

I know the mystery it is a part of me

Full of dichotomies and parallel realities

Balance of extremes I

Humble in technology

Knowing full well we destroyed ourselves in history

See dem from afar 

We are they who they used to be

Custodians of humanity

My brotherโ€™s keeper for an eternity

As I look east to the king I find clarity

From long time Rasta we did tell dem

Upon the harp and psaltery we did tell dem, ahhhh

Long time Rasta tell dem

True Rasta tell dem

Well Rasta tell dem

Oh Jah Jah we did tell dem

Upon the harp and psaltery we did tell dem, ahhhh

I know that Zion is a part of me

And with my prayer to Jah I seek 

Within the kingdoms of Zion no disparity

Triumphantly we've been moving silently

Triumphantly glorify His Majesty

His Majesty, His Majesty, 

Haile Selassie I Power of the Trinity

Oh Rasta we did

Yes Jah Jah we did

Oh Rasta we did

Yes Jah Jah we did

Oh Rasta we did

Yes Jah Jah we did

Oh Rasta we did

Yes Jah Jah we did 

From long time Rasta we did tell dem

Upon the harp and psaltery we did tell dem, ahhhh

Long time Rasta tell dem

True Rasta tell dem

Well Rasta tell dem

Oh Jah Jah we did tell dem

Upon the harp and psaltery we did tell dem, ahhhh
