(Verse 1)
Jamaica, meck mi tell you bout the place mi born and grow
Down here hot life fire wi no have no snow
Mi haffi big up mi country real
Born Jamaican mi proud to be
Wi party when government a stress wi out
Big head spliff and Hennessy haffi wet mi mouth
Mi haffi big up mi country real
Even though wi stress financially

No ask if it tough
No ask if it rough
Wi love Jamaica and wi naw give it up
A nuff time wi hungry and wi pocket them broke
But fi the money wi naw do funny stuff

No ask if it tough
No ask if it rough
Wi love Jamaica and wi naw give it up
A nuff time wi hungry and wi pocket them broke

(Chorus)
Big up mi island Jamaica, Jamaica
Jah make wi high
Every yaardy a champion
So big up wi big runner Bolt

Every yaardy a champion
A da place yah mi come from
The land of the black, green and gold
Land of the black, green and gold

(Verse 2)
50 add years now wi pass half a century
Little but wi talawa mi love wi little country
All when the system a box and a thump wi
Western Union, Money Gram never empty
So big up the people them weh stay trough

Loyal Jamaicans wi haffi rate you
Fertile black soil them cant diss you
Bob Marley, Mr Bold and Mrs Lue

That’s why mi big up the people them weh stay trough
Loyal Jamaicans wi haffi rate you
Fertile black soil them cant diss you
Bob Marley, Mr Bold and Mrs Lue

(Repeat Chorus 2X)
