(Verse 1)
Member when mi never use to live nuh weh my youth
My bed was just a palet
Mama keep on moving up and down just like a hydraulics
The meal nuh use to steady, mix up till it give wi colic
Brother weh fi set the thing drop out
Mi whole family panic
Dem days mostly chip in
But tin mackerel and cornmeal porridge
Mi father was a former, every now and then a cabbage
But still wi hold wi thing, wi never give nobody baggage
Mama that did go domestic, but yet still dem hold dem marriage

Mi si mi mother stress, God know shi do her best
Almighty bless grandma, hope in peace shi a rest
That’s why mi tell dem seh mi naw go tek no press
Cause if dem violate mi a go rise up every ants out a mi nest

(Chorus)
Seh man a go tru, this a some a the things weh mi go tru
Hypocrites and parasite low winter psalm
God news yo lose, mi pay mi dies
Naw go si mi toe a come through mi shoes

Yo si man a go tru, this a some a the things weh mi go tru
Hypocrites and parasite low winter psalm
God news yo lose, mi pay mi dies
Yo naw go si mi toe a come tru mi shoes

(Verse 2)
Tell dem seh Portland mi born
But Forth Hill Garden a mi place
First time dem hear mi voice
Everyone look in a mi face
And seh how da youth yah bad suh?
Him wi naw go replace
The thing get mix up, mi up, but wi buss up couple case
And every bus a town wi know bout every route
First time mi go a Shock Hill whu security keep mi out
Mi know mi did a go meck it without a doubt
Suh unuh low mi meck mi survive
Caw mi go through nuff drout

(Repeat Chorusn2X)
