Duppy Conqueror

Yes, me friend,
We deh a street again.
Yes, me friend, me good friend,
Dem say we free again.

The bars could not hold me;
Force could not control me now.
They try to keep me down, yeah!
But Jah put I around. Yeah!

Yes, I’ve been accused many a times
And wrongly abused, now.
Oh, but through the powers of the Most-I,
They’ve got to turn me loose.

O-o-oh! O-o-ooh! Oh! Don’t try to cold me up on this bridge, now.
I’ve got to reach Mount Zion –
The highest region.
So if you a bull-bucka,
Let me tell you this –
I’m a duppy conqueror – conqueror. Oh, yeah!

Yes, me friend, me good friend,
We deh a street again. O-oh!
Yes, me friend, me good friend,
Dem say we free again. Oh! Oh!

So don’t try to cold me up on this bridge, now.
I’ve got to reach Mount Zion –
The highest region.
So if you a bull-bucka,
Let me tell you this:
I’m a duppy conqueror – conqueror. Oh, yeah!

Yes, me friend,
Dem say we free again. Oh! Oh, yeah!
Yes, me friend,
Dem set we free again. Oh!
Yes, me friend, me good friend, … [fadeout]
