Yes, me friend, me friend
Dem set me free again

The bars could not hold me;
Force could not control me now.
They try to keep me down
But God put me around. Yeah!

Yes, I've been accused
Wrongly abused now
But through the powers of the Most High
They've got to turn me loose
Verse 4
So don't try to cold me up on this bridge, now.
I've got to reach Mount Zion
The highest region.
So if you a bull-bucka,
Let me tell you this:
I'm a duppy conqueror - conqueror.

Dem set me free again, mm

For I will cut you off
And I will take the laughs off

We deh a street again
Yes, me friend, me friend, me friend
Dem set me free again
Verse 8
Bars could not hold me
