Buju banton - 400 years

Let the massive gather on the beach
Every one ah we like to reach
Listen while I say

Too long in Babylon
We've been too long in Babylon
We've been too long in Babylon (say what?)
We've been too long in Babylon (how long?)

Over four hundred years, say what? (Four hundred years)
Over four hundred years, I cry (four hundred years)
Over four hundred years in Babylon (how long?)

Over four hundred years, say what? (Four hundred years)
Over four hundred years, I cry (four hundred years)
Over four hundred years in Babylon

And I man never cease a fire 'til
Babylon walls burn down
I man never cease a fire 'til
Babylon walls burn down
I man never cease my fire 'til
Babylon walls burn down
I shall never cease my fire 'til
Babylon walls burn down

Too long in Babylon (say what?)
We've been too long in Babylon (woii)
We've been too long in Babylon (children)
We've been too long in Babylon


How they weep us, they eat us
They put us all to shame
Down there in Babylon
Lord, they ate away the change
But we're still using their brain
Down there in Babylon
How we work without a gain
Seems we labored in vain
Down there in Babylon
Lord, the more they say tings change
Still remain the same
Down there in Babylon
Now, now, now

We've been too long in Babylon (children)
We've been too long in Babylon (say what?)
We've been too long in Babylon (children)
We've been too long in Babylon (how long has it been?)

Over four hundred years, woii (four hundred years)
Over four hundred years, I cry (four hundred years)
Over four hundred years in Babylon (say what?)

Over four hundred years, woii (four hundred years)
Over four hundred years, say what? (Four hundred years)
Over four hundred years in Babylon

And I man never cease a fire 'til
Babylon walls burn down
I man never cease a fire 'til
Babylon walls burn down
I will never cease my fire 'til
Babylon walls burn down
I shall never cease my fire 'til
Babylon walls burn down

I man never cease my fire 'til
Babylon walls burn down
I man never cease my fire 'til
Babylon walls burn down
