Vital Spot
Reggae Down Babylon
Jimmy Cliff
Album: Hanging Fire

A girl walked up to me one day.
This is what she had to say.
She said:
"Reggae makes me feel all right.
I want to do it with you tonight."

So we took a stroll out on the town.
Look for the hottest spot around.
Then we started jammin' to the sound.
We ram it and we jam it
and we reggae and we reggae them down.

Oh! Reggae down Babylon!
(Reggae down Babylon!)
Reggae down apartheid!
(Reggae down apartheid!)
Reggae down Babylon!
(Reggae down Babylon!)
Reggae down apartheid!
(Reggae down apartheid!)

Do it again!
Do it again!
Do it again!
Do it again!

She said:
"I bet they think they have seen the end.
While we were coasting around the bend.
Checking on some friends we know."
She said:
"Come let's go to a go go!"

So we took a stroll out on the town.
Found the hottest spot there's around.
Then we start to reggae to the sound.
We ram it and we jam it
and we ??? when we reggae them down.

Oh! Reggae down Babylon!
(Reggae down Babylon!)
Reggae down apartheid!
(Reggae down apartheid!)
Reggae down Babylon!
(Reggae down Babylon!)
Reggae down apartheid!
(Reggae down apartheid!)

Do it again!
Do it again!
Do it again!
Do it again!

Hey! Reggae down Babylon!
(Reggae down Babylon!)
Reggae down apartheid!
(Reggae down apartheid!)
Reggae down Babylon!
(Reggae down Babylon!)
Reggae down apartheid!
(Reggae down apartheid!)

Do it again!
A make we do it again!
Do it again!
Do it again!

She said:
"I bet they think they have control
over the people with rock and roll."
I said:
"I bet they think they can hide the truth.
Holding the people from their roots."
When they think they have it all their way.
Here we come and it's a brand new day.
Now they better listen what we have to say.
You should a see us
when we start to reggae them down.

Oh! We reggae down Babylon!
(Reggae down Babylon!)
Reggae down apartheid!
(Reggae down apartheid!)
Reggae down Babylon!
(Reggae down Babylon!)
Reggae down apartheid!
(Reggae down apartheid!)

Do it again!
Do it again!
Do it again!
Do it again!

Hey! Reggae down Babylon!
(Reggae down Babylon!)
Reggae down apartheid!
(Reggae down apartheid!)
Reggae down Babylon!
(Reggae down Babylon!)
Reggae down apartheid!
(Reggae down apartheid!)

Do it again!
