    Heights of great men reach and kept
    Were not attained by sudden flight
    Gee while their companions slept
    Very ackwardtile in through the night
    Heights of great men reach and kept
    Were not attained by sudden flight
    Gee while their companions slept
    Very ackwardtile in through the night

    Cool, a who dem seh dem a fight deh, a who dem seh dem go light
    Selassie overthroned him never tek nobody's stripe
    A who dem a seh man nasty?? and dem nuh smell so right
    A 'nough a dem deh dutty dread nuh bath under pipe
    Mi see seh dat look envious mi know it obvious
    And if mi never war wid him I know him wouldn't buss
    Yuh should have thanked mi first, I am da genius
    Like how yuh dissed though dat a small exodus
    Cool! Mi check mi hear how yuh waan bun Bill Clinton
    Mi use fi hear how yuh waan bun all maamaman
    Mi use fi hear how yuh waan bun all lesbian
    So tell mi how di hell yuh go sign to Def Jam when!

    Heights of great men reach and kept
    Were not attained by sudden flight
    Gee while their companions slept
    Very ackwardtile in through the night
    Heights of great men reach and kept
    Were not attained by sudden flight
    Gee while their companions slept
    Very ackwardtile in through the night

    Cool mi go call him mi go tek it pon a level
    Hoped yuh were di first Selassie seh dem a di devel
    Now I mek some DJ get uncomfortable
    Well I am di rain fi mek all fire fuzzle
    Well mi haffi wonder if a dem seh dem come a sizzle

    Well we kill people dem dead and forgotten
    Wait this yah dupyman come fi 'cause trouble
    But hear mi sing

    Heights of great men reach and kept
    Were not attained by sudden flight
    Gee while their companions slept
    Very ackwardtile in through the night
    Heights of great men reach and kept
    Were not attained by sudden flight
    Gee while their companions slept
    Very ackwardtile in through the night

    But a talk bout more fire, mi a give dem more prayer
    Mi pray fi rain and mek it wash down bag-a-walla
    Dem a talk bout more fire, mi a give dem more fire
    Well this a tune dat ago mek some DJ talk some more
