Wyclef Jean feat. Buju Banton
WHO GAVE THE ORDER
The Preacher's Son (2003)


I’m Buju Banton with The Preacher’s Son
Who gave the orders
For them to go, alright
Who gave the orders
Martin was shut down, alright
Who gave the orders
To drop the bomb, we wanna know
Who gave the orders
No refugees across the borders, hey
Questions asked with no response
(Who’s gonna answer)
Where did all these guns come from
(Who’s gonna answer)
Feeding lies to our daughters and sons
(But they will have to have to answer)
Then what you gonna do when the Rastaman comes
(Where you gonna run for cover)
Lookin’ through window of my high-rise
On the city filled with lies
‘Cause hurtin’ the people workin’ so hard
Doin’ whatever it takes to get by
Then I look at myself and realize
That I was put here for a reason
Lord knows I’ve done my best and I’ve tried
We gon’ keep tryin’
Who gave the orders
For them to go, Lord, no
Who gave the orders
Martin was gunned down, oh
Who gave the orders
To drop the bomb, my God
Who gave the orders
No refugees across the borders, hoo
Questions asked with no response
(Who’s gonna answer)
Where did all these guns come from
(Who’s gonna answer)
Feeding lies to our daughters and sons
(But they will have to have to answer)
Well, what you gonna do when the Rastaman comes
(Where you gonna run for cover)
Well, what you gonna do, what you gonna do, what you gonna do
Incarcerate a million and only free few
What ??? it shall be done to you
Open up your eyes and you will see the full view
Work all day and you can’t get a raise in pay
Civil bodies been taken away
I wonder what the voice of the people have to say
Stand up and defend your rights today
Who gave the orders
For them to go, oh
Who gave the orders
Martin was gunned down, oh
Who gave the orders
To drop the bomb, alright
Who gave the orders
No refugees across the borders, well
Questions asked with no response
(Who’s gonna answer)
Where did all these guns come from
(Who’s gonna answer)
Telling lies to our daughters and sons
(But they will have to have to answer)
Then what you gonna do when the righteous comes
(Where you gonna run for cover)
