I want to thank y’all for coming out tonight to see me
Right now put your hands together
For original, original diva, original dub plate
No one can play this but Refugee’s on the number 1 tour
Now listen to Miss Whitney Houston (come with it!)

Yo, this is Whitney Houston
Yes massive this is the original vocalist
I’d like to say rest in peace to Dennis Brown

If tomorrow is judgment day (light is in the air)
And I’m standing on the front line (hey yo!)
Mmm, and the Lord asks me what I did with my life
I would say: “Wyclef murdered a sound boy” (yo, huh!)
If I wake up in World War III
(If you believe in the most high, hands in the air!)
I see destruction and poverty
(East coast, west coast, hey, hey!)
And I feel like I want to go home (South side!)
It’s okay, as long as Wyclef is with me
(North side, Jamaican, Caribbean, Haitian
Hands in the air, everybody, hey!)

My love is your dub, and your dub is my dub
It will take eternity to break us
And the chains of Amistad couldn’t hold us (Listen to Whitney!)
My sound is your sound
‘Cause the refugee sound is the only sound
It will take eternity to break us
And a million sound boys will die before us

This for the hardcore, before I had the record deal you kno what I’m sayin’?
I’ma take why’all back when I was walking down the street
My little girl saying: Yo Clef, that nigga trying to stick with something
Walk over to him and said: Yo…
