I think this is one of those songs that try to touch every little area of contemporary Jamaican culture however, it refers to politics in its true light. Pree It!!!

 

Wanted (Just Ain’t the Same)

By Damian ‘Junior Gong’ Marley,

INTRO

Instrumental plays

Zilllla

VERSE 1

Hey check it

Things just ain’t the same for gangsters

Most a di don dem de ina handcuffs

And most a yout dem a yaad tun dancers

Policeman wi shoot yu and leave yu unconscious

Garrisons been losing sponsors

Kaa most politician flake out like dandruff

An court indictment a spread like cancers

And even the baby a tun ina monsters

Road hot

Kingfish due more answers

Rolling up in unmark king fish and lancers

Rat patrol increase due to circumstances

Dis year mi hear di man dem nah keep champions

 

CHORUS

Things just aint the same for gangsters

Don’t trust even your close companions

Mi hear di Armageddon deep like canyons

Some a di criminals at large

A criminal weh large

A rob di country blind

And the corruption camouflage

And if the streets could eva talk

What’s really going on

Whole heap a people would be wanted

Some a di criminals at large

A criminal weh large

A rob di country blind

And the corruption camouflage

And if the streets could eva talk

What’s really going on

Whole heap a people would be wanted

VERSE 2

Check it

Tings just aint the same for hustlers

Informers and bustas living amongst us

Now everyman face deh pan posters

Kyaahn trust people who are the closest

Hey squady you’ve been losing focus

To protect and serve but yu more provoke us

Yu lock off di dance when you should support us

Reggae entrepreneur dancehall promoters

Things happen for the strangest reasons

Most of the artistes can’t get visas

Now time tougher than a tambrind (tamarind) season

Dem naah reap no corn an di fowl waahn feedn

CHORUS

Things just aint the same for gangsters

Don’t trust even your close companions

Mi hear di Armageddon deep like canyons

Some a di criminals at large

A criminal weh large

A rob di country blind

And the corruption camouflage

And if the streets could eva talk

What’s really going on

Whole heap a people would be wanted

Some a di criminals at large

A criminal weh large

A rob di country blind

And the corruption camouflage

And if the streets could eva talk

What’s really going on

Whole heap a people would be wanted

 

VERSE 3

Check it

Di whole country a strap, yu blame us

Now dat di violence get outrageous

Minimum wages for young teenagers

Carry 12 gauges an waahn be famous

Don’t do politicians favours

Deh come in all colours, size, shapes and flavours

A dem introduce di violent behaviours

An push come to shove not even dem can save us

What’s the outcome of all these capers

To sell more pages and more newspapers

Yu read dem and burn dem dem turn to vapours

Meanwhile the youths dem locked in cages

CHORUS

Things just aint the same for gangsters

Don’t trust even your close companions

Mi hear di Armageddon deep like canyons

Some a di criminals at large

A criminal weh large

A rob di country blind

And the corruption camouflage

And if the streets could eva talk

What’s really going on

Whole heap a people would be wanted

Some a di criminals at large

A criminal weh large

A rob di country blind

And the corruption camouflage

And if the streets could eva talk

What’s really going on

Whole heap a people would be wanted
