I absolutely love this song. The lyrics are so profound and has been on repeat for the last few days.  Enjoy my family!

Shaka Zulu Queen aka Nomadic Empress

Marcus Garvey family
Ancestors no leave me
Nyabinghi, Boboshanti
Ai yai yai yai yai, yai yai yai yai yai
O o o whoaaaaaoooo
A yai yai yai , yai, yai, yai, yai,
E, ei, ei e
Ai yai yai yai yai, yai yai yai yai
O o o whoaaaaaoooo
A yai yai yai , yai, yai, yai,
E, ei, ei e

Verse 1
Listen
The blood, of African Kings run in my vein
Here, ina Jamaica rebellious offspring
We’ve got a warrior spirit inside
From dat time wi kyaahn change
And dis ya warrior spirit inside
It come fi break every shackle and chain

Chorus
Man a Shaka Zulu, pickney
Nkrumah, pickney
Kunta Kinte, pickney
Just like Malcolm and Martin and Marcus I’m fiery
Kuma, pickney
Telakute, pickney
Kunta Kinte, pickney
Just like Garvey and Marley am fiery

Verse 2
Look how many years dem whip wi
Dash weh di whip and waah microchip wi
Ana doti Babylon style no fit mi
Battle it out come mek wi get wi victri (victory)
hhh, fight mi breda and sista
And when wi a dance dem seh wi moving sinister
hh, when all wi do is love wi culture
A beat di drums and a chase the vultures away

Chorus
Man a Shaka Zulu, pickney
Paul Bogle, pickney
Lumumba pickney
Just like Martin and Malcolm and Marcus I’m fiery
Garvey, pickney
King Selassie I, pickney
Mandela, pickney
Just like Marcus and Martin I’m fiery

Verse 3
The thoughts of freedom fighters dwell in my brain
Stolen from Africa the mission is still the same
We’ve got a warrior spirit inside
It well wild, it kyaahn tame
And disya warrior spirit inside
It come fi break every shackle and chain
And dem a try brainwash wi
Poison wi mind dem meditation dirty
Dem neva tell wi seh black is beauty
Mi naah go bleach mi seh mi naah dilute i
Noo, eh yuut search search you history
Break di puzzle come mek wi solve the mystery
Eeh, a Salomonic dynasty from the line of David
What a priceless legacy

Chorus
Man a Shaka Zulu, pickney
Nkrumah, pickney
Kunta Kinte, pickney
Just like Malcolm and Martin and Garvey I’m fiery
Nanny, pickney
Sam Sharpe, pickney
Buju Neke, pickney
Just like Martin and Marley and Garvey am fiery
