Worth His Weight in Gold (Rally Round)

Worth His Weight In Gold (Rally 'Round) is a song from the British-based reggae Steel Pulse's album, True Democracy. The song incorporates references to Marcus Garvey and the meaning of the colors of the Black Nationalist flag. (Garvey proposed the flag with the colors red, black and green - In the song, Steel Pulse makes reference to the colors red, gold, black and green, thereby incorporating a Jamaican element.) The song is the fifth track on the True Democracy album.

Lyrics

CHORUS
Rally round the flag
Rally round the Red
Gold, Black and Green
Rally round the
Rally round the Red
Gold, Black and Green

Marcus say - Sir Marcus say
Red for the Blood
That flowed like the river
Marcus say - Sir Marcus say
Green for the land Africa
Marcus say
Yellow for the Gold
That they stole
Sir Marcus say
Black for the people
It was looted from

They took us away captivity, captivity
Required from us a song
Right now man say repatriate, repatriate
I and I patience have now long time gone
Fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, everyone
Four hundred,
Four hundred million strong
Ethiopia stretch forth her hands
Closer to God we Africans
Closer to God we Africans
Closer to God we can
In our hearts is Mount Zion
Now you know seek the Lion
Our hearts is Mount Zion
Now you know, now you know
How can we sing in a strange land
Don't want to sing in a strange land
Liberation,
True Democracy
One God, One Aim, One Destiny!

CHORUS
Rally round the
Rally round the
Red for the Blood
That flowed like the river
Rally round the
Rally round the
Green for the land Africa
Rally round the
Rally round the
Yellow for the Gold
That they stole
Rally round the
Rally round the
We the Black people

Remember when we used to dress like kings
Conqueror of land, conqueror of seas
Civilisation far moved from caves
Oppressor, Oppressor man live deh
I curse that day
The day they made us slaves I say

How can we sing in a strange land
Don't want to sing in a strange land
Liberation,
True Democracy
One God, One Aim, One Destiny!

CHORUS
Rally round the flag
Rally round the Red
Gold, Black and Green
Rally round the flag
Rally round the Red
Gold, Black and Green

A bright shining star..Africa
Catch Star Liner right now...Afrika
A history no more a mystery Afrika
Respect and authority...Afrika
Climb ye the heights of humanity
Come rally, come rally, come rally, come rally round
Come rally...
