Lee 'Scratch' Perry - Soul Rebel

Song Lyrics

Biblical Reference

The race is not for the Swiss,
Neither the battle for the French,
The race is not for the weak,
Neither the battle for the strong,
Ecclesiastes 9:11 - I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.
But for they who can endure it to the end. Matthew 24:13 - But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
For I am a rebel, the rebel
- Soul rebel -
Who trap the Devil,
Who trap the Devil.
I'm a conqueror
And I'm a bonkeror
- Soul adventurer - I say,

God is a living man
A living power plant
And I got works, lots of works to do. I say,
And if I ain't acting living, living good
Dem I'm gonna travel wild,
And travel, and be a wild child,
Stop 'n' see, see, see the mornin' sun,
Mornin' sun risin' on the hill side.
He been a living goody-good, den he goin' to travel
wide, ahaheheheee!

I'm a rebel and di rebel,
And di rebel of di rebels,
Who throw out the Devil,
Trap the Devil, trap the Devil.
And I am the conqueror,
