Busy Signal – Not Going Down lyrics

[Intro:]
Mek dem know this, Jamaica!

[Chorus:]

We not going down, and dem huff an
Dem a puff and dem a frown.
Can't tek di getto youth dem fi clown; cause what goes around, comes all the way around.

Too much man a get slue.
You betta watch what you say or do.
Cause it just might happen to you.
When you work hard but chosen a few.
(I)
Got some news today
(I)
How much getto youths dem slay.
(I)
Got some things to say
(I)
There must be a britter way.
[Verse:]

Tell dem fi stop from, bus up di glac and put down the mac. Some a gawn like dem can't do without it. To how the time a go nah, thank god for the life for the life weh we have, cause we can't live without it.

[Chorus:]
We not going down, and dem huff an
Dem a puff and dem a frown. Can't tek di getto youth dem fi clown; cause what goes around, comes all the way around.

Too much man a get slue.
You betta watch what you say or do. Cause it just might happen to you. When you work hard but chosen a few.

[Verse 2:]

Some can't find food, to how the place a run.
Some can't go a school, to how the place a run.
Man a broke all the rule, to how the place a run.
Tell dem nuh badda pick up the gun, put it down.

Palitition trick we, then turn round kick we. Wham to the education me pick'ne.
Reality check, when di bills dem lick me, mi call pan the fada quickly busy (busy)

[Chorus:]
We not going down, and dem huff an
Dem a puff and dem a frown. Can't tek di getto youth dem fi clown; cause what goes around, comes all the way around.

Too much man a get slue.
You betta watch what you say or do. Cause it just might happen to you. When you work hard but chosen a few.
(Beat goin...)
Let dem know this

We not going down, and dem huff an
Dem a puff and dem a frown. Can't tek di getto youth dem fi clown; cause what goes around, comes all the way around.

Too much man a get slue.
You betta watch what you say or do. Cause it just might happen to you. When you work hard but chosen a few.

Too much man a get slue.
You betta watch what you say or do.
Cause it just might happen to you.
When you work hard but chosen a few.
(I)
Got some news today
(I)
How much getto youths dem slay.
(I)
Got some things to say
(I) there must be a britter way.

[Verse:]

Tell dem fi stop from, bus up di glac and put down the mac. Some a gawn like dem can't do without it. To how the time a go nah, thank god for the life for the life weh we have, cause we can't live without it.

[Chorus:]
We not going down, and dem huff an
Dem a puff and dem a frown. Can't tek di getto youth dem fi clown; cause what goes around, comes all the way around.

Too much man a get slue.
You betta watch what you say or do.
Cause it just might happen to you.
When you work hard but chosen a few.
[Repeat... Until song ends]
