Do You Ever


Mi nuh like how dem a treat di ghetto yute dem enuh cho
Ghetto yute dem a bawl,long eye watah a fall

Tell mi if yuh eva walk di streets of the ghettos dem before
Fi si who is unsafe from secure
Di life style of ma people you fail to recognize
Do you know what it takes fi ghetto people survive
Di yuh eva walk tru August town at all
Fi hear di comments of di people wheh a bawl
Wonda what it takes for you to realize
How Riverton city ghetto yutes dem a strive

Verse 1:
Dat's why wi a king from wi deh home inna Africa
Once wi a trod tru rome wi a warrior
Wha wi fi get all now it nuh deliva
Our share unuh tek an a dis wi afta
When di money start rise yuh keep your secret secure
When it start fall yuh make it known to the poor
Soon you'll be coming back for more
An when yuh cup full a wi yuh ignore

Chorus (with changes to Rema and Nannyville)

Verse 3:
Heard you commenting all the while about the places wi live
Degrade wi lifestyle when you make it what it is
I'm reaping violence from mi cities
Low hygiene took stronghold in many village
Now,who will protect those who truly want peace
How can wi keep the peace when there is no peace to keep
This time i take no defeat
Oh lord i'm incline to stand on ma feet

Chorus (with changes to Waterhouse,Craigtown)

Verse 3:
Well den mr. rich come off a di poor man's feet
Why is it di strong want to downpress di weak
With out those who clean yuh sanitaries and sweep yuh street
Yuh cities would be mucky yuh nuh see it
Who you,promise to sink inflation below
Yet it increase everywhere dat yuh go
Is this the way yuh love a show
Hurting others and yuh own also
