People Funny Boy

Lee Perry

why, why people funny bwoy
now that you reach the top
an' you turn big shot
all I have done for you
you not remember that
when you were down an' out
I used to help you out
but now that you win jackpot
you don't remember that
now that you turn big shot
bwoy you 'ave big chat

you're lucky, you're lucky, you're lucky to have rice and peas a yard
but me, poor me don't have none at all

I want-a, I want-a, I want-a, I want-a,
I want-a uh i-yah yard tonight
