We Don't Kill Rude Boys

Gregory Isaacs

We don't kill rude boys
We don't kill rude boys, no, lord

In the ghetto men and men got to function, yeah
With little or no education
With no hope of employment
And that should call for this content

We don't kill rude boys, no
We raise them
'Cause each and ev'ryone
Is a part of the problem
We don't kill rude boys, no
We raise them
'Cause ev'ryone and all
Is a part of the problem

The name of the game is survival
As society they turn us all into criminal
And once you grow, end up watch'em die
I see some people laugh and I see some cry

But we don't kill .......

Oh Lord, believe me

In the ghetto.....

We don't kill .......

People are trying very hard just to get out
Up a bubble, it's a very small mouth (?)
And once you grow, end up watch'em die
I see some people laugh and I see some cry

But we don't kill .......
