Whoa, na, na, yeah, yeah, ya zagga, nagga, now, now
Oh lord, well, I gotta friend called Tony
Who been build a one [unverified] from mi was a baby
His nickname afta dat is money
Let mi give dem di whole story, yeah, ya, ya

As a juvenile in di ghetto were growin' up
Their big guns wanted boy have showin' us
And they keep tell him everyday that gun is no toy
Till policeman back him up

Shoot out his way, escape, he's fabulous
Jamaican most wanted, he's dangerous
People dem a say this is one cantankerous boy

Hey, but now di back against di wall
(Back against di wall)
Likkle yuh know yuh would a fall
(Know yuh would a fall)
Seh dat yuh badda than all
But yuh shouldn't lick di bank down at di mall
(Bank down at di mall)

Now yuh modda pon har belly and a bawl
(Pon har belly and a bawl)
When man mek dat phone call
(Oh, now, now, now, now)

Juan, he was a victim of circumstances
Di system weh dem have yah it create this crisis
Yuh see a ghetto yute wit a gun na, call him no boy
His gunshot to rahtid

Lock off jobs in all di communities
As a ghetto yute yuh have a few opportunities
Lack of education wid all we abilities stall, hey, ya

But when yuh back against di wall
(Back against di wall)
Likkle yuh know yuh would a fall
(Know yuh would a fall)
Seh dat yuh badda than all

Mon yuh shouldn't lick di bank down at di mall
(Bank down at di mall)
Now yuh modda pon har belly and a bawl
(Pon har belly and a bawl)
When man mek dat phone call
(Oh, now, now, now, now)

It's like workin' at a hospital, yuh can't afford fi see innah
Workin' at a restaurant, yuh can't afford a food innah
Workin' at a butty poor, yuh can't afford a shoes innah
Feel se dat me right mi fren? No rasta

Well, policeman find a gun weh forty man, gone a prison fah?
Know seh Santa Claus neva visit dis, yah rasta, yah

Oh, now, now, now, now, now, yeah

Ghetto yute it's time for us to be strong
Whoa, lawd, lawd, lawd
Yute man wise up and live as one, yeah, yah, yah, yah
'Cause everyday a black man kill anodda black man, whoa
Di system create by Babylon, so fire bun pon Vatican

So now yuh back against di wall
(Back against di wall)
Likkle yuh know yuh would a fall
(Know yuh would a fall)

But yuh shouldn't lick di bank down at di mall
