Cornerstone (Bob Marley)


The stone that the builder refused,
Will always be the head cornerstone.
Sing it, brother!
The stone that the builder refused,
Will always be the head cornerstone.

You’re a builder – here I am a stone.
Don’t you think and refuse me
‘Cause the things people refuse,
Are the things they should use.
Do you hear me? Hear what I say!

The stone that the builder refused,
Will always be the head cornerstone.
Tell me what!
The stone that the builder refused,
Will always be the head cornerstone.

Here I am, baby.
I’m a builder’s stone.
Don’t you pick and refuse me, listen!
The things people refuse,
Are the things they should use.
Do you hear me? Hear what I say!

The stone that the builder refused,
Will always be the head cornerstone.
The stone that the builder refused,
Will always be the head cornerstone.

I can be soft as a pillow.
Weep like a willow.
Caress and bring happiness.
Don’t refuse me, don’t you refuse.
Don’t, don’t, don’t you refuse.
