Originator

Jimmy Cliff

Album: Special

Wop ju wah Jah.
Wop ju wah Jah.
Wop ju wah Jah ooh.

Some saying this.
Some saying that.
Some saying things
they really don't know, but.
Some say I'm mad.
That's when I'm glad.
Ever so glad because I am no fad.
And I cares not what Babylon say.
Or who they say they are.
They got to come,
they got to come my way.
Or they won't get far.

I'm the originator.
No imitator.
I'm the originator.
I the creator.

Some say go right.
Some say go left.
I man said balance
'cause that's the best.
Some talking 'bout
a new economic order.
A spiritual one
I and I would rather.
'Cause we're in Rome
but we do not do
what those Romans do.
They got to come,
they got to come our way.
Faith will see us through.

I and I originator.
Soul inspirator.
I and I originator.
No imitator.
I and I originator.
I the creator.

Some say we're dreamers.
Some say we're schemers.
Some say we're fooled
'cause we won't be their tools.
I and I a winner.
We're no beginner.
Won't be your sinner
'cause we know Jah rules.
And we cares not what Babylon say.
Or who they say we are.
They got to come,
they got to come our way.
Or they won't get far.

I the originator.
No imitator.
Say I and I originator.
