One Drop Lyrics – Bob Marley

One Drop Lyrics

Oo-oo-ooh yea-ah. Wo-yoy! Wo-yoy! Wo-yoy! Wo-yoy-yoy-yoy!
Feel it in the one drop;
And we’ll still find time to rap;
We’re makin’ the one stop
The generation gap;
Now feel this drumbeat
As it beats within
Playin’ a riddim
Resisting against the system ooh-wee!

I know Jah’s never let us down;
Pull your rights from wrong
(I know Jah would never let us down)
Oh no! Oh no! Oh no!
They made their world so hard (so hard):
Every day we got to keep on fighting (fighting);
They made their world so hard (so hard):
Every day the people are dyin’ (dying) yeah!
(It dread dread) For hunger (dread dread) and starvation
(dread dread dread dread)
Lamentation (dread dread)
But read it in Revelation (dread dread dread dread):
You’ll find your redemption
And then you give us the teachings of His Majesty
For we no want no devil philosophy;
A you fe give us the teachings of His Majesty
A we no want no devil philosophy:

Feel it in the one drop;
And we still find time to rap;
We’re making the one stop
And we filling the gap:
So feel this drumbeat
As it beats within
Playing a riddim uh!
Fighting against ism and skism

Singing: I know Jah’s never let us down;
Pull your rights from wrong:
I know Jah’s never let us down.
Oh no! Oh no! Oh no!
They made their world so hard
Every day (we got to keep on fighting) every day;
They made their world so hard
Every day (the people are dying) eh!
(dread dread it dread dread) Oh whoa! Make dem a-go on so:
(dread dread it dread on dread) Ah whoa!
(dread dread) I’ll walk (it dread dread)
Ah whoa! Frighten dem ah whoa!
(dread dread) Ah whoa! Frighten dem eh!
Give us the teachings of His Majesty – with a stick-up!
We no want no devil philosophy. Can you hear?
Give us the teachings of His Majesty
For we no want no devil philosophy.

We feel it in the one drop; you’re lucky!
For we still got time to rap
And we’re making the one stop
Let me tell ya: this generation gap.
So feel this drumbeat;
I tell you what: it’s beating within
Feel you heart playing a riddim – /fadeout/

[And you know it’s resisting against ism and skism
Singing: I know Jah would never let us down.]
