We ain’t got no weapon
You never see we wid a gun
We ain’t got no weapon
We never touch no gun
If music is a weapon
You see the bullet is a song
If music is a weapon
You see the bullet is a song

Remember King Fela, from Lagos, Nigeria
A rebel inna Africa, the Voice of the sufferer, the weak and the humble,
He’s been through much trouble,
To the eyes of the oppressor, him was a big upsetter,
So dem put him inna prison but what is a prison
When your lyrics like arrows can go through the windows,
You can lock up a man, but you won’t lock up his message
Anything you try, you cannot lock up his message

Yes with the mike inna you hand
With the mike you’re the predominant one
Me haffi tell uno, tell uno, tell uno you’re important
You get up, stand up and fight, fight fi the truth and the rights
You have a reason, you also have a vision

We ain’t got no weapon
You never see we wid a gun
We ain’t got no weapon
We never touch no gun
If music is a weapon
You see the bullet is a song
If music is a weapon
You see the bullet is a song

So whether you're a writer or whether you're a singer
You fi talk with your heart but don’t stir no fire
Times so hard fi a whole heap a nations
Singers and players have a peaceful mission
If you want it or not you’re like a loudspeaker
And your lyrics may live on for ever and ever
Hey Mr Dylan, you’re helping dem people
Hey Mr Marley, you’re helping dem people

Yes with the mike inna you hand
With the mike you’re predominant, man
Me haffi tell uno, tell uno, tell uno you’re important
You get up, stand up and fight, fight fi the truth and the rights
You have a reason, you have your own vision
So when me feel sad and blue, me put a plate pon mi Hi-Fi
Me cool down me temper and me start feelin' high
Me forget mi worries, melodies inna me head
Dem like a food fi me soul and a spiritual bread
So don’t dis de man, don’t dis de singer
Ca’ most a dem a cool most a dem a freedom fighters
Have no gun inna we pocket only de mike inna we hand
No knife, no automatic coulda never…

We ain’t got no weapon
You never see we wid a gun
We ain’t got no weapon
We never touch no gun
If music is a weapon
You see the bullet is a song
If music is a weapon
You see the bullet is a song
