    Lyrics

    Why boasteth thyself
    Oh, evil men
    Playing smart
    And not being clever?
    I said, you're working iniquity
    To achieve vanity (if a-so a-so)
    But the goodness of Jah, Jah
    I-dureth forever

    So if you are the big tree
    We are the small axe
    Ready to cut you down (well sharp)
    To cut you down

    These are the words
    Of my master, keep on tellin' me
    No weak heart
    Shall prosper
    And whosoever diggeth a pit
    Shall fall in it, fall in it
    And whosoever diggeth a pit
    Shall fall in it (fall in it)

    If you are the big tree, let me tell you that
    We are the small axe, sharp and ready
    Ready to cut you down (well sharp)
    To cut you down

    (to cut you down)
    (to cut you down)
    These are the words
    Of my master, tellin' me that
    No weak heart
    Shall prosper
    And whosoever diggeth a pit
    Shall fall in it, uh, bury in it
    And whosoever diggeth a pit
    Shall bury in it, uh (bury in it)

    If you are the big, big tree
    We are the small axe
    Ready to cut you down (well sharp)
    To cut you down
    If you are the big, big tree, let me tell you that
    We are the small axe
    Ready to cut you down (well sharp)
    To cut you down
    Sharpened
