Iron & Steel (2010)

Ah say to send dem 7x
Ah say to send dem come
Ca' we eh turnin' round
Ah say to send dem come
Is madness on de junction
Ah say to send dem come
Ca' we eh turnin' round
Because is we who keep de people jumpin'
Hands up now and show meh something
Shake yuh rag and keep it wavin' (Put em up! Put 'em up!)

Pound for pound when we comin down on Carnival Monday
Iron and steel
We tougher than
Iron and steel
Drum for drum
We beatin' until de people start to jump and break way
Iron and steel
Iron and steel

Listen
When it come to carnival
Say it wit me (We ready)
All de masqueraders on de road can you hear me? (We ready)
On your feet, show de world who does make yuh happy
Now is time to test de ... with your body
So let's pick up something and put up something
And leh we start with de wave
Everybody start to wave
Jump up and start misbehave
An expression to show de world we love
Cause Carnival is we ting
Is we who keep de people jumpin'
Hands up now and show meh something
Shake yuh rag and keep it wavin' (Put em up! Put 'em up!)

Pound for pound when we comin down on Carnival Monday
Iron and steel
We tougher than
Iron and steel
Drum for drum
We beatin' until de people start to jump and break way
Iron and steel
Iron and steel

Jump up jump 3x
Jump jump jump
Jump up

Let's go
When we on de road, who can make we move away
Freedom for all creed and race to express dey body (we ready)
Paint a picture for de world and be proud to show it
Carnival is for all ah we so act like you know it
Just take out something and -- out something
And leh we start with de wave
Everybody start to wave
Everybody start to wave
Everybody start to wave
Everybody start to wave
Start wave
Start wave
Start wave

Pound for pound

Is we who keep de people jumpin'
Hands up now and show meh something
Shake yuh rag and keep it wavin' (Put em up! Put 'em up!)

Pound for pound when we comin down on Carnival Monday
Iron and steel
We tougher than
Iron and steel
Drum for drum
We beatin' until de people start to jump and break way
Iron and steel
Iron and steel

Listen
When it comes to carnival
Say it wit me (We ready)
All de masqueraders on de road can you hear me? (We ready)
On your feet, show de world who does make yuh happy
Now is time to test de ... with your body
So let's pick up something and put up something
And leh we start with de waving
From A to Z all de masqueraders on de road misbehaving'
Is we who keep de people jumpin'
Hands up now and show meh something
Shake yuh rag and keep it wavin'
Pound for pound!
