(Intro)
Mi si car for sale and mi cyaa buy none
Mi si house for sale too
Tell mi when da money deh a go come
Ghetto youth left school and cyaa si no feature
10 years from now tell mi wa a go happen to mi daughter

(Chorus)
If everyday wi til the soil
And Babylon no share the spoil
Everyday wi a suffer
Where is the love for the black child
Mister chin done have him own
Dem treat wi like dog and wi still no get no bone
Tell me where is the love for the black child

(Verse 1)
How mi fi live off a four grand a week
Lord Jesus
That a just fi mi son sneakers
Lord God mi bridge the water
Cyaa pay the bill mi haffi back the light meter
When mi get pay by Friday
Everything done by Saturday
When mi take one step forward
It coming like mi take 3 step back way
Babylon yo naw go get weh
You haffi pay fi wa yo do to ghetto youth
Mi black brother dem just hold the faith
Selassie high have a plan fi you
When one ghetto youth drop out
10 more born caw the journey continue
10 years from now tell mi wa a go happen to mi daughter

(Repeat Chorus)

(Verse 2)
Hey Not Nice mi a read out fi the ghetto youth mi no care
That’s why when me reach inna Jamaica house weh day
Mi tell dem every ghetto youth have a talent
Babylon why yo waan fi si dem fail
Dem no have no job, dem only future
Is like the maggot, is like the chink
This is not a threat is a warning

Babylon yo naw go get weh
You haffi pay fi wa yo do to ghetto youth
Mi black brother dem just hold the faith
Selassie high have a plan fi you
When one ghetto youth drop out
10 more born caw the journey continue
10 years from now tell mi wa a go happen to mi daughter

(Repeat Chorus 2X)
