(Intro)
Me promise my self seh mi naw tek defeat
You a gwaan like your life worth more
And mine a the least
All when the problem suh easy fi solve dem a turn dem cheeks
Rather yo rich or yo poor when yo gone all yo get is just a reet

(Chorus)
Dem waan wi fi live in a fear
While dem a build sky scrapers a live in a high
I work hard so just give me my turn
Dem waan take mi thing when so many need it out there

Dem waan wi fi live in a fear
While dem a build sky scrapers a live in a high
I work hard so just give me my turn
Dem waan take mi thing when so many need it out there

(Verse 1)
And although the journey long
Mi naw go give up, and naw go walk
Yea man fi get mi house and now strap up fi baby mortgage
Seh mi tired a the days when dem treat wi like garbage
The future fi the youths dem, dem a damage
RIP fi the innocent lives weh dem in a ground
Member the wicked cyaa enter zion
That a fire burn

(Repeat Chorus)

(Verse 2)
That’s why mi a cry to the savior
Cause only Jah can help out Jamaica
Life worth more than diamonds and purl
Only Jah can help out the world

(Repeat Chorus 2X)
