Mi tell you dem wi buss yo head and come back

(Verse 1)
Yo nuh si dem yah friend yah dem lame
Come a talk bout a brother dem name
The bugger dem waan si yo dead
Yet still dem nuh have nothing fi gain
A death dem a wish pon the one likkle life

Or dem sell you out to the cops
And never visit you anytime you a lydown a hell

Fake friend deh one side a plat yo head back
Dem waan tear off one side a that

(Repeat Chorus)
