Ooh yeah ooh yeah
Na na na na na na
Ooh yeah ooh yeah
Na na na na na na

One step forward, two steps backward
Down inna Babylon
One step forward, two steps backward
Down inna Babylon

One day you are dreadlocks (well dread)
Next day you are baldhead (clean shave)
Onward, forward, don't step backward
Step out of Babylon
Onward, forward, don't step backward
Step out of Babylon

Are you a commercialized
Grabbing at the cash-backs?
This is a time of decision
Tell me, what is your plan? yeah

Onward, forward, don't step backward
Step out of Babylon
Onward, forward, don't step backward
Step out of Babylon

Straight is the road that leads to destruction
Ooh yeah
The road to righteousness is narrow
Ah let me tell you say

Indictive feelings enter feeling
The truth is a fact, tell me
Are you a con man, or are you a dreadlocks, eh?

One step forward, two steps backward
Down inna Babylon
Onward, forward, don't step backward
Step out of Babylon

Ooh yeah ooh yeah
Na na na na na na
Ooh yeah ooh yeah
Na na na na na na

The road is rough and the hill is steep
Ah let me tell you say
The mountain is high and the valley is deep
Oh yeah oh yeah

Onward, forward, don't step backward
Step out of Babylon
Onward, forward, don't step backward
Step out of Babylon

One step forward, two steps backward
Down inna Babylon
One step forward, two steps backward
Down inna Babylon

Ooh yeah ooh yeah
Ah let me tell you say
Ah let me tell you say
Ooh yeah ooh yeah

Ah let me tell you say
One step forward, two steps backward
