Dark is the world they live in
Blacker than coal
Where dem should see a brother
Dem see only foes
What a woe
Dem think dem a running a show

Dem always trying to squeeze
Blood from a stone
Take from the weak to feed
Dem Babylon throne
See dem go
Why dem treating a sufferer so
Yes me want to know why

Gimme gimme gimme they don't they don't
Gi'we gi'we gi'we dey ah dey
Gimme gimme gimme they don't they don't
Gi'we gi'we gi'we dey ah dey
Ah dey

There was a ritcheous man
Long time ago
Who lived his life in peace
At one with the whole
It a so
But today dem a go for your throat
Cuz it's all they know and so

Gimme gimme gimme they don't they don't
Gi'we gi'we gi'we dey ah dey
Gimme gimme gimme they don't they don't
Gi'we gi'we gi'we dey ah dey
Ah dey

Sometimes I sit and I wonder
Will it be like this forever
Or will it ever change
Feeling like pillage and plunder
Yes it's me under
Oh

Gimme gimme gimme they don't they don't
Gi'we gi'we gi'we dey ah dey
Gimme gimme gimme they don't they don't
Gi'we gi'we gi'we dey ah dey
Ah dey

One day they'll come to find
What they don't know
To slip through the eye of the needle
Got to have soul
Where dem go
All dem riches is dust 'pon the floor
Still they grabbing more and more

Gimme gimme gimme they don't they don't
Gi'we gi'we gi'we dey ah dey
Gimme gimme gimme they don't they don't
Gi'we gi'we gi'we dey ah dey
Ah dey
