Riddim: Kiki

  • From the voice of one who has been through the struggles and knows what it feels like to endure pain and hardship, I present these lyrics to you for you to understand that violence is not being preached in this song but a mere picture is being painted of what may transpire if the leaders do not offer redress to those who have and are still suffering.

[Intro:]
Wanna talk to the MPs the Opposition leader
Tha maa fucking prime minister
Cut back on school fees better jobs we needa (wi in need a)
Make sure this one register Wow!

[Chorus:]
Nuh money naa make an man a suffa,
And to how the country a run, it a guh tougher.
Therefore, any weh it deh man a guh fah,
Tek it say me say ghetto youths a nuh bluffer.
You tink dem nuh waa inna them Benz a listen Usher,
Buy mama house toilet with button flusher,
The system inveigle some a wi fi tun clutcha,
Now wi need some justice weh  wi nuh get much a

[Verse 1:]
Unu leave wi with nuh alternative but fi rob unu,
Kidnap gag unu,
Haul and drag unu,
Tru the youts a tink positive mek dem nuh bag unu,
Leviticus 20, 13 unu fag unu.
Till wi get justice wi naa stop nag unu,
Stop push wi round gi wi breeze unu hog unu,
Memba man wi gag unu,…. yeh
Yeh man mi gag unu….worse

[Chorus]
Nuh money naa make an man a suffa,
And to how the country a run, it a guh tougher.
Therefore, any weh it deh man a guh fah,
Tek it say me say ghetto youths a nuh bluffer.
Yu tink dem nuh waa inna them Benz a listen Usher,
Buy mama house toilet with button flusher,
The system inveigle some a wi fi tun clutcha,
Now wi need some justice weh wi nuh get much a

[Verse 2:]
Mr. Wow too young fi be a revolution leader,
But mi too smart fi be a politician iida (either).
Kyaa get mi out with unu press and unu media,
Why when wi smart wi them try fi get rid a.
Fi uplift the poor I am more dan eager,
Government yu minimum wages too meager,
How wi survive unda dem fatigue yah,
But man a study di system as di victim ina da league yah

[Chorus]
Nuh money naa make an man a suffa,
And to how the country a run, it a guh tougher.
Therefore, any weh it deh man a guh fah,
Tek it say me say ghetto youts a nuh bluffer.
You tink dem nuh waa inna them Benz a listen Usher,
Buy mama house toilet with button flusha,
The system inveigle some a wi fi tun clutcha,
Now wi fighting fi some a di justice wi neva get mucha

[Repeat Verse 1:]
Unu leave wi with nuh alternative but fi rob unu,
Kidnap gag unu,
Haul and drag unu,
Tru the youts a tink positive mek dem nuh bag unu,
Leviticus 20, 13 unu fag unu.
Till wi get justice wi naa stop nag unu,
Stop push wi round gi wi breeze unu hog unu,
Poor people robbers mi label and tag unu
Memba man wi gag unu,…. yeh
Yeah man mi gag unu….worse

[Chorus]
Nuh money naa make an man a suffa,
And to how the country a run, it a guh tougher.
Therefore, any weh it deh man a guh fah,
Tek it say me say ghetto youths a nuh bluffer.
You tink dem nuh waa inna them Benz a listen Usher,
Buy mama house toilet with button flusha,
The system inveigle some a wi fi tun clutcha,
Now wi need some justice weh wi nuh get much a
