Buju Banton – Run Di Place lyrics


Dem definitely don't know it
I haffi show dem it
Little bwoy, little bwoy, chuh


After mi say run di marathon
Dem coundnt run it
Give dem the chance fi bun dun di place
Dem couldnt bun it
How dem fi inna competition when dem know dem nuh fit
Gargamel tek up the whip and all DJ tek sick


Nuff assignment dem get and little bit accomplish
Bwoy dey all bout a splirt naw duh no practice
A nuh so yuh mek tune, a nuh so yuh find hits
Like the great Callaloo Henry mi a guh tek up back the whip
I am the trademaster who teach apprentice
Ambitious, yuh nuh work, but inna mi seat yuh waan sit
Mine yuh name get mark offa the Dean's list
Talking pure rubbish, Inna di mic yuh just a spit
Dirty words and the sight is not hygenic


Stand aside while I demonstrate
How to rock a mic, tear dung the place
Rudebwoy juckie jam, nuff gal dey pon base
Free education, the lion set the pace
Nuff inna camp, kuh pon face
My thing a my thing, mi nuh inna rat race
Lyrics whey nuff a talk is not up to date
A sell dem sell very cheap fi fruit cake
DJ, clean the pattan, grab a broom, hol the rake
Lift up the standard try educate the race


Mic check mic check
Nuff a dem run outa breath
Whey dem Quashi yah come from
Dem nuh ready yet
Better look a 9 to 5
Or Bakkle yuh get
DJ practice, yuh wi become perfect
Waan reach the top and yuh mek di first step
Listen Buju Banton, mek sure this select
