Mr. Preacher man
What you got to say to di nation,
Mr. Preacher man
What you goin to say when the youts dem turn away
I’ve been a believer for all of my life
But there’ve been constant conflicts my mind
The people are hurting and crying and searching waiting for a reason to go on
And all you can say is go pray and be patient it won’t be this way for too long
Sitting and waiting to me that seems crazy,
Making them lazy in your congregation
Pleading to a Savior an emancipator
whose very behavior proves you wrong
So tell me
Mr. Preacher man
What you got to say to di nation,
Mr. Preacher man
What you goin to say when the youts dem turn away
Since the very beginning you’ve told them the end was near
Fearing damnation they buy their salvation, not living while they’re still here
But you will have to ansa too, for all di tings unnu neva do,
Cause what you teach in Sunday school, you don’t demonstrate
A use emotions tie dem down instead a sen dem fi go roun’
and live di words wha dem a soun’, mek dem participate
Mr. Preacher man
What you got to say to di nation,
Mr. Preacher man
What you goin to say when the youts dem turn away
Di people caught up in religion, traditions of a people
Who did hold us in subjection, rejection of the power that was in our possession
Before all a dis regression back when we an di creator had an intimate relationship
before dem even lan’ ova pon di motherlan’
before dem even get fi ask di question
if we needed dem religion, dem givin’ it to we
a look excuse fi carry dem infection cross di sea
den dem tek di ancient people put dem into slavery
rape and murder in di holy name of Christianity
yes religion is the tool, was the tool of the oppressor
cause they never plan to set the people free.
So tell mi
Mr. Preacher man
What is your reaction to the problems dat we facing
Is not no blame we placing, we jus pleadin we case in
Di best way dat we can
please help the I dem overstand
please help the I dem overstand
Mr. Preacher man
What you got to say to di nation,
Oh Mr. Preacher man
when the youts dem turn away
Tell me Mr. Preacher Man
What you got to say?
