|Marcus - Far Up The Heights|
|Who said the Black Man never lived|
In History with his deeds most great?
The liar, thief and cowardly man
Who tries to boss the Negro's fate.
He gave to Europe codes of laws,
And took the Greeks from out their pen:
He sent his gods to foreign lands
To show the light to other men.
Let Black Men feel as proud men should,
For they do have a past most bright:
They gave out thoughts and made men think
Of them as gods far up the height.
|Haile Selassie I|
