Jah Jah city Jah Jah town
Dem waan fi turn it in a cow bwoy town now...

And I seh Ini promote to di highest level

[Chorus:]
Jah Jah city, Jah Jah town
Dem waan fi turn it in'a cow bwoy town now
Unno look yah now
Jah Jah city, Jah Jah town
Dem waan fi turn in'a dead man town now
Unno look yah now

[Verse 1]
Well Mr. John Crow draw coffin John Brown
We nuh waan no more dead ina town
Mr. Happy got so lucky trigger happy yow
We no waan no more dead body
Well Mr. Joe kill quick, we nuh waan no more hit
We nuh waan no more grave an we waan no more casket
Well life we promote which is righteousness
Sadam get a lick!
Unno look yah now!

[Repeat Chorus]

[Verse 2]
Dem ah tell me how dem cold
Big forty five

Nuff ah dem seh dem cold like a body north pole
So dem shoot down di young, shoot down di old
Shoot down di puss an di dog an di fool
Every weekend dem tek a next payroll
Out of man pocket dem shoot out billfold
Dis Marcus Garvey nuff a head haffi go roll
Look yah now

[Repeat Chorus]

[Verse 3]
Dem think dem reach di ultimate, yow
But dem reach nowhere yet, oy

And society a tell dem dem a intellect

Ten miles outta di city oy

Well life we ah promote fi mek de ghetto youth see't
Life is wha we wish
Unno watch out now

[Repeat Chorus]

Bloody, Bloody...
