Beenie Man – Better Learn lyrics

Bwoy to the amount a fire weh a bun
Storm build up all inna di sea
Yuh nuh see weh a gwaan a bere rain nearly
Wash we out but a good t'ing wi God bless eenuh because yuh hear weh a gwaan nuh

Chorus: yuh si di fire burn a words without works
Fire burn up di obeah man shirt
Fire burn oonu better learn
A nuh everything out di yuh fi burn

Verse 1: imagine, yuh dress up inna di latest wear
Out on yuh versace 'cause a tight pants deh wear
Yuh come out yuh hear a rasta man seh bun down a queer
Yuh feel like yuh waan disappear
Imagine big dance a keep down inna di square
Woman inna moschino and di tallest hair
She come out she hear a rasta man seh jah jah bun a false hair
She ask har self if she hard ears
Imagine yuh come from sav-la-mar
See a rasta man tired yuh know seh him a walk from far
Yuh nuh si seh rasta bun up all car


Verse 2: youth yuh want get a rasta man vex
Inna him turban and him robe and him don't got no cess
Him come out him hear bald head seh bun dung a dress
Den yuh woulda know who jah bless
Just inna weh day a rasta crash up pon a hill
Him go a hospital and doctor take care a him
Dem give him a prescription and him go deh fi a fill
The pharmacist sey, "sir, bun dung a pill"
Just inna weh day inna pablo's mi walk
Di rata dem buy dung to curtain cloth
Him come out, some little youth naah tek no talk
Seh bun dung a tie head and laugh


Verse 3: nuff a den bun up but dem soon ketch a fire
Nuff a bun foreign dem a frequent flyer
Nuff a dem a fight and die fi a dollar
Nuff a dem a bun waste fire
Well, from yuh bun di dragon den yuh mussn' go a japan
And if yuh bun di eagle den nuh go uncle sam
Weh yuh a do wid di queen money inna yuh hand
Try leggo dat, rasta man
