    Lyrics

    Why boasteth thyself, oh evil men
    playing smart and being clever, oh no
    I say, you're working inequity
    to achieve vanity, yeah, if I sow I sow
    but the goodness of Jah, Jah
    I'doreth for Iver

    If you are a big tree,
    We are the small axe
    sharpened to cut you down (we shall)
    ready to cut you down, oh yeah

    These are the words of my Master
    keep on telling me
    no weak heart shall prosper
    oh no, they can't, eh

    And whosoever diggeth a pit
    shall fall in it, shall fall in it
    Whosoever diggeth a pit
    shall bury in it, shall bury in it

    If you are a big tree,
    We are the small axe
    sharpened to cut you down
    ready to cut you down

    And whosoever diggeth a pit
    shall fall in it, fall in it, eh
    Whosoever diggeth a pit
    shall bury in it, shall bury in it

    If you are the big tree,
    We have a small axe
    ready to cut you down (we shall)
    sharpened to cut you down
