My Ancestors - Jimmy Cliff

My ancestors were kings of old
They ruled the world and all of its gold
But look at me - oh! look at me
Just look at me

My ancestors would find the sun
Before they bowed down to anyone
But you gonna look at me
Whoah-o-oh! look at me
Just look at me

Yeah, whoah-o-oh! look at me
I'm a stranger in this land
Watch me stand tall
Help me, help me be just a man, oh!

My ancestors - they were mighty men
And my son - he will be one of them
And they'll just look at him
Yeah, they'll look at him
And they'll say, he's a man, he's a man
My son's a man, oh!

My ancestors - they passed it on to me
I've got to, got to work
And pass it on to my son
And he will be a man, oh yeah
And pass it on to his son
And he will be a man, oh yes he will
