Small Axe. The Wailers. Album African Herbsman. Why boasteth thyself Oh, evil men Playing smart And not being clever? I said, you are working iniquity To achieve vanity But the goodness of Jah, Jah I-dureth forever. If you are the big tree We are the small axe Sharpened to cut you down Ready to cut you down. These are the words Of my master, keep on telling me No weak heart shall prosper And whosoever diggeth a pit Shall fall in it, shall fall in it Whosoever diggeth a pit Shall lay in it, shall lay in it.
