(Verse 1)
A likkle place call August Town
Jah Vinci the singer was found
The nozzle a the chrome
A it pull mi gate every time when mi touch home
Two brothers and a father
Two step sister mi haffi thank you Jah
She was more than a mom
Even though mi call her mi stepmother
Mi tell Sean Bel seh a stand pipe
True mi cyaa take the pressures of life
Big up fi stand by mi side
You play a brother role when mi big brother lose him life
Mi know mi nuh waan turn cruff
Suh mi search fi the money nough
Jah laydown wi town
Know seh mi life did rough

(Chorus)
But mi naw go suffer too long
Mi naw go suffer too long
Eyes pon the prize caw mi know wa mi want
Jah, Jah, love keep me strong

Me naw go suffer too long
Mi naw go suffer too long
Eyes pon the prize caw mi know wa mi want
Jah, Jah, love keep me strong

(Verse 2)
Him know every song weh mi build
While mama put the chicken pon the grill
Even though allot of times mi si shi draw nil
Like shi just did a work fi pay bills
Allot of times mi waan give up
But food a nuh drinks fi cup
But Jah, Jah, never fling mi down
Oh Jah, Jah, loft mi up
Mi think a bag a bill
The raise pay likkle easier
Member a you seh what’s new give to seazer
Never know the day mi would a own a visa
Basco seh come meck wi meat the teacher

(Repeat Chorus)

(Verse 3)
Nuh bite the hands weh feed you everybody know that
But how mi a go feed when theirs no food fi pot
Suh who nuh understand and cyaa relate to that
Ghetto never grow mi fi come be nuh door mat
All a the youths wid yo eyes pon the top
Never meck them hold you back
Itès a rough game, mi glad seh a Jah Vinci mi name

(Repeat Chorus)
