Life is for man to live (let man live life)
Bread is for man to eat (let man eat bread)
Bread and pyaka, cut down pyaka-ism
Bread and pyaka, cut down pyaka-ism

Everything ya run dung 'pon (x4)

Come, we go reason now
Come-a come-a come-a, we go reason now
(We deh go reason now) (x3)

Where do you stand for happiness
When you no say you no want it
While some a dem (some a dem, some a dem) out deh, eh

I bus dem shut right now
Fi get it
Bread and pyaka, cut down pyaka-ism
Bread and pyaka, cut down pyaka-ism

Woman feels the pain
Man suffer, Lord
Woman feels the pain
Man suffer, Lord

Come-a come-a come-a, we go reason now (x6)
Peeyah, peeyah, pyaka, come (x3)
Come-a come-a come-a, we go reason now (x4)
Bread and pyaka
Sister pyaka
Bread and pyaka
Sister pyaka
Cut down pyaka-ism
Cut down pyaka-ism
