Hey, yeah
Everybody run, run, run
Everybody scatter scatter
Some people lost some bread

Someone nearly die
Someone just die
Police dey come, army dey come
Confusion everywhere
Hey, yeah

Seven minutes later
All don cool down, brother
Police don go away, army don disappear
Them leave sorrow, tears and blood

Them regular trademark
Them leave sorrow, tears and blood
Them regular trademark
That is why

Hey, yeah
Everybody run, run, run

La, la, la, la
My people self dey fear too much
We fear for the thing we no see
We fear for the air around us
We fear to fight for freedom

We fear to fight for liberty
We fear to fight for justice
We fear to fight for happiness
We always get reason to fear

We no want die, we no want wound
We no want quench, we no want go
I get one child, mama dey for house
Papa dey for house, I want build house
I don build house, I no want quench
I want enjoy, I no want go, ah

So policeman go slap your face
You no go talk
Army man go whip your yansh
You go dey look like donkey

Rhodesia dey do them own
Our leaders dey yab for nothing
South Africa dey do them own
Them leave sorrow, tears and blood

Ah, na so, time will dey go, time no wait for nobody
Like that choo, choo, choo, choo, ah
But police go dey come, army go dey come
With confusion in style like this
