This a survival story
True ghetto story
This is my story
Real ghetto story
Hey

I remember those days when hell was my home
When me and mama bed was a big piece a foam
An mi never like bathe and my hair never comb
When mama gone a work me go street, go roam

I remember when Danny dem tek me snow cone
An mek him likkle bredda dem kick up Jerome
I remember when we visit dem wid pure big stone
An the boy Danny pop out something weh full chromeI remember when

We run, Fatta get him knee blown
An mi best friend Richie get, two inna him dome
I remember so the avenue tun inna warzone
An' Mickey madda fly him out, cau she get a loan

But, Mickey go to foreign and go tun Al Capone
Mek whole heap a money and sen in our own
Now a we a lock the city and, that is well known
Yesterday Mickey call me pan mi phone
Mi say Mickey

Wi get di ting dem, dem outta luck now
Mi squeeze seven and the whole a dem a duck now
Wi have whole heap a extra clip cau we nuh bruk now
Rah, rah, rah, rah

Wi get di ting dem, so dem haffi rate wi
Cau we a tek it to them wicked of lately
And now the whole community a live greatly
Rah, rah, rah, rah

I remember bout '80, Jamaica explode
When a Trinity and Tony Hewitt dem a run road
That a long before Laing dem and even Bigga Ford
When Adams dem a Corporal nuh know the road code

I remember when we rob the chiney shop down the road
An rumor have it sey the chiney man have a sword
But we did have a one pop wey make outta board
So you know the next day mama pot overload

I remember when we skip the poll clerks
An dump the ballot box pan Tivoli outskirts
An hold a plane ticket and go chill over Turks
When me come back a still inna the hole me a lurk

I remember those days when informer dirks
Get one inna him face and me nuh get nuh perks
And the bigger heads dem are a couple of jerks
'Cause a dem a mek di money, when a wi mash di works

Wi get di ting dem, dem outta luck now
Mi squeeze seven and the whole a dem a duck now
Wi have whole heap a extra clip cau we nuh bruk now
Rah, rah, rah, rah

Wi get di ting dem, so dem haffi rate wi
Cau we a tek it to them wicked of lately
And now the whole community a live greatly
Rah, rah, rah, rah

Jamaica get screw, tru greed an glutton
Politics manipulate and press yutes button
But we rich now ,so dem caan tell man notin
'Cuz a we a mek mama a nyaam fish an' mutton, ehh

Ova dehso mek mi tell unnu some'in
Tru mi dey a foreign now a guy kill me cousin
An mi here sey TD deh dey but him sey he wasn't
Anytime mi fly down him a get bout dozen 'cause

Wi get di ting dem, dem outta luck now
Mi squeeze seven and the whole a dem a duck now
Wi have whole heap a extra clip cau we nuh bruk now
Rah, rah, rah, rah

Wi get di ting dem, so dem haffi rate wi
Cau we a tek it to them wicked of lately
And now the whole community a live greatly
Rah, rah, rah, rah
