Hit the Streets

By: Joshua Holbrook

Let the streets overflow with singing,
because mighty Jah has conquered
Babylon is burning, Babylon has fallen
War is over, freedom’s calling
For many years has the serpent kept us down
Deceiving our youngns’, running them outta town
But now the powers that be, are buried in the Earth
Her who sits on many waters lies dead in the surf

Chorus
People hit the streets with dancing, come down here and dance with me!
(x4)

The woman is gone, no more any tears,
The tree of life and healing dispatches all our fears
And we dance for joy with Mighty Jah,
We sing for joy with the Almighty God
My enemies have all perished,
Those that remain, are those who cherish
The God of Holy Zion, God of our Fathers,
And we, Jah people, we’re more than conquerors

Chorus
People hit the streets with dancing, come down here and dance with me!
(x4)

Bridge
One day when we’re healed by the leaves of the tree
One day when the nations, once blind, can see
One day when the devil bows down on one knee
When the King reigns in Jerusalem,
…then we’ll be free…
The moon comes out, ready to get the party begun
And the stars peak down, to see what’s going on
Get on your dancin’ shoes, and don’t you show no shame
Loosen up, party up, life is no more mundane

Chorus
People hit the streets with dancing, come down here and dance with me!
(x4)
