Versatile – Give Thanks Lyrics

Big up every selector, every DJ
ZJ’s weh have mi songs dem pon replay
Producer weh mix down mi songs dem when mi DJ
Inna studio dem no sleep fi all 3 day
Big up every patron, all the gate man
Mix tape man and every radio station
Sound system weh mi songs dem a play pon
Haters weh encourage mi fi stay strong

Caw mi naw be ungrateful
Give thanks all when mi plate full
Mi always member when mi out a door
A wait fi the gate pull

So mi a thank the lord
Thank you Jah
Thank you Selassie High
Thank you God
Thank you cause a you gimmi the reward
And yo gimmi the strength meck mi work so hard

(Verse 1)
Yow Markus life could a worst
Life could a better
But mi a give thanks cause mi no hide inna pressure
Yeh and to the father mi writing a letter
You meck mi wear Clarks and Nike inna sweater
Watch yah, yo never corn my rice wid no pepper
And life still deh yah, mi no live pon a stretcher
Nuff people tell mi strive fi the better
And help mi fi climb up the ladder

(Repeat Chorus)

(Verse 2)
So give thanks to the forward
Thanks fi the boo’s
Thanks fi the corrections, thanks fi the cuse
Thanks fi mi friends dem weh deh, deh, straight through
When mi pree fi give up, dem seh continue cruse
Thanks when mi win, when mi lose
Thanks fi who accept and who refuse
And thanks to mi brethren mud inna New Nork
When mi bare foot a him send the shoes

(Repeat Chorus)
