Peter Tosh - I Am That I Am (Equal Rights, 1977)  

Don’t underestimate
My ability
Don’t definite my character
Don’t belittle my authority
It’s time you recognized my quality….

“Babylon is everywhere. You have wrong and you have right. Wrong is what we call Babylon, wrong things. That is what Babylon is to me. I could have born in England, I could have born in America, it make no difference where me born, because there is Babylon everywhere.” ― Bob Marley
