Man to man is so unjust, children:
Ya don't know who to trust.
Your worst enemy could be your best friend,
And your best friend your worse enemy.

Some will eat and drink with you,
Then behind them su-su 'pon you.
Only your friend know your secrets,
So only he could reveal it.
And who the cap fit, let them wear it!
Who the cap fit, let them wear it!
Said I throw me corn, me no call no fowl;
I saying, "Cook-cook-cook, cluk-cluk-cluk."

Some will hate you, pretend they love you now,
Then behind they try to eliminate you.
But who Jah bless, no one curse;
Thank God, we're past the worse.
Hypocrites and parasites
Will come up and take a bite.
And if your night should turn to day,
A lot of people would run away.
And who the stock fit let them wear it!
Who the (cap fit) let them (wear it)!

And then a-gonna throw me corn,
And then a-gonna call no fowl,
And then a-gonna "Cook-cook-cook, cluk-cluk-cluk."

Some will eat and drink with you,
Then behind them su-su 'pon you, yeah!
And if night should turn to day, now,
A lot of people would run away, yeah!
And who the cap fit, let them wear it!
Who the cap fit, let them wear it!
Throw me corn, me no call no fowl;
A-saying: "Cook-cook-cook, cluk-cluk-cluk."
... : "Cook-cook-cook, cluk-cluk-cluk."
Throw me corn (cook-cook-cook);
Me call no fowl (cluk-cluk-cluk)

    Be careful of people; you don't know who to trust. Your closest friend could be your untrusted because they know much about you; your closest friend will or can set a trap. Basically if this is who they want to be let them be. Best to know who your friend is than not at all because you will overcome it. Lastly what you cook up for someone else you also cook up for yourself.

    The one who acts in the ways talked about. It's better to know the truth and make changes in your life.

    The people closest to you are the ones who know everything about you. If you hear your secrets being told then you know who has told them. "i throw me corn, me no call no fowl" i put it out there and just wait for the chicken to come to me. Enemies often stay close to you so they can try and hurt you but if you are blessed nothing can happen to you.
