(Intro)
While dem a sing bout nuff gyal everyday
Mi a sing bout mi wife seh mi naw go a stray
While dem a sing bout shoot a man down
Mi tell the youths nuh blood nuh fi run

(Chorus)
I’ve got to live a different life
Mi naw do weh everybody do fi get no stripe
Hear mi nuh Elvis

I’ve got to live a different life
Mi naw do weh everybody do fi get no stripe

(Verse 1)
Mi a the artist, the one weh have manners
Not one bag a man a follow back a
Mi a the artist if yo no hear mi song play
A dem one deh a wait fi the pay
Mi a the artist weh nuh tek show money
A nuh go show that ain’t nothing funny
Mi a the artist do music professionally
Not egotistically

This a the truth mi a talk how mi feel
Nuff a dem don’t like dem house happy meal
True mi nuh walk and exalt mi self
Dem try place mi like a bottle paw shelf

But mi nuh worry, no mi nuh worry
Slow growth mi seh everything curry
My house build pon a rock
It nuh build pon sand
Mi nuh care if it rain or sunny

(Repeat Chorus)

(Verse 2)
While nuff a dem tek the wrong left
Mi a stay pon the right
Music is a mission nu=ot competition
Mi nuh need fi a thump or fight

Suh mi seh big up all mi fans in a sweet, sweet, Jamaica
All mi fans world wide
While dem a kill up dem self seh dem a run the place
Mi a walk wi Jah by mi side

This a the truth mi a talk how mi feel
Nuff a dem don’t like dem house happy meal
True mi nuh walk and exalt mi self
Dem try place mi like a bottle paw shelf

But mi nuh worry, no mi nuh worry
Slow growth mi seh everything curry
My house build pon a rock
It nuh build pon sand
Mi nuh care if it rain or sunny

(Repeat Chorus 2X)
