Mi got di bing inna mi right hand, river stone inna mi left
The general come round
Tongue confess, every knee bow down
More than the palace of Jacob and Abraham
Him ah dizzy and ah stagger pon di ground then mi leff
General you want so ah general command
Tell the people uptown
General deh ya you ain’t gotta wait no more
So by time you look we done everything already
And me ram up any dance with the mic inna mi hand
Tell Goliath say ah riot when mi step
Mi and mi poppa like David and Jesse
Tell the people uptown
Like father like son the general ah pass through
First class deejay me well phenomenal
Good lord, Jah know
And the one dem downtown
When mi dip and mi come and then mi cuff him then mi queff him
Tell the people uptown
[Intro]

Tell every king weh ah claim dem ah king fi leave di compound when dem buck up on me
And the one dem downtown
Come round, come round, come round
The city hot like a Kingston town
Haffi make way fi Selassie pickney
Reign and rule over Ethiopian
Oh lord
Zion and the terrible they coming with me
The general come round
Ah no me alone
Everywhere miwego Jah Jah deh pon di journey
[Verse 2]

String up your big bad sound
And the one dem downtown
Haile Selassie I, conquering lion
Mi and mi daddy Solomon and Menelik
So the lord God loveth holy mount Zion
Philistine nuh come in but the natty never fret
Good lord, Jah know
The general come round
Reign the believing of the ark of covenant

[Chrous]

Ah no me alone
Me nuh ‘fraid fi come grab the mic and slew
Burning like a fire

But if ah real general Selassie I ah di onlu one
Come the general fi say dont move, ease

From Queen of Sheba comes David second
Burning like a fire

[Chorus]
Go find the Vatican and tell the people

[Chorus]

When ah war time we sling ever ready
Give me little space make me dolly past you
Everything we do ah fi di king glory

Trumpet loud like ah Stone Love sound
