"Me ah hear over radio station that dread overthrow baldhead in ah Revolution."
"Is true iah, Natty ah concar me say...Long live Grenada dread, long live ah revolution, long live ah PRA."

Is a long, long time me never see Natty Dread so happy
Is ah long, long time never see Natty Dread so gay.
De Babylon gone, Natty Dreadlocks ah free up ah country,
The Guanaman gone Natty Dread in ah PRA.

Natty Flying high, so high,
Natty flying high, jumping up for joy
Natty high so high
Natty Dreadlock jump up and say 'Jah Rastafari' Ye

Is a long, long time time me never see Natty Dread so happy
Is a long, long time never see Natty Dread so gay
Cause de obeah man use to press Natty down in a country
But Natty up wid he gun an he dread in ah PRA.

Children all rejoice, rejoice
Children all rejoice, see de light ah come
Children rejoice, rejoice
Children rejoice and say Jah Rastafari Ye!

Long Live!
