Demarco – Standing Soldier lyrics

Yeah demarco
Ghetto youths

Dem nuh want we reach nuh weh
Dem only wah we listen weh dem teach we seh
Mister mp so you mean to say
Ghetto youths nuh fi live no way

[Chorus:]
Dem waan we fi fall
But da nah happen none at all
Dem waan we fi fall
Raise up the food and tek di dancehall
Man a standing soldier
You nah see we bawl
Man a real standing soldier
All when mi back against di wall
Man a real standing soldier
We nah bow down and crawl
Man a real standing soldier
Jah jah protect us all

[Verse 1:]
Every day another youth a dead inna di ghetto
Stop di violence and bloodshed inna di ghetto
We nuh waan fi see deh more coke head inna di ghetto
Cyaan be afford peace agen inna di ghetto
Help poor people treat dem right
Nurture di youths don't give dem a fight
Pan poverty di bigger heads need fi she'd some light

[Chorus:]
Dem waan we fi fall
But da nah happen none at all
Dem waan we fi fall
Raise up the food and tek di dancehall
Man a standing soldier
You nah see we bawl
Man a real standing soldier
All when mi back against di wall
Man a real standing soldier
We nah bow down and crawl
Man a real standing soldier
Jah jah protect us all

[Verse 2:]
Wah decision poor people fi mek crime rate escalate a di next thing a death
Now di conquering jungling you haffi watch weh you step
The worst is the communion you see nothing yet
Mi seet everyday mi seet pon di tv
Mi nuh waan no more shelta seh missing we
Mister governement stop dissing we
And set di people free
Free

[Chorus:]
Dem waan we fi fall
But da nah happen none at all
Dem waan we fi fall
Raise up the food and tek di dancehall
Man a standing soldier
You nah see we bawl
Man a real standing soldier
All when mi back against di wall
Man a real standing soldier
We nah bow down and crawl
Man a real standing soldier
Jah jah protect us all

[Outro:]
Dem nuh want we reach nuh weh
Dem only wah we listen weh dem teach we seh
Mister mp so you mean to say
Ghetto youths nuh fi live no way

Dem nuh want we reach nuh weh
Dem only wah we listen weh dem teach we seh
Mister mp so you mean to say
Ghetto youths nuh fi live no way

    Dem two bad mind, grudgeful, conniving, deceiving, dem only want the youth dem fi do dem dutty wuk. The youth dem have fi be strong. Cause we a standing soldier. Have faith youths. Dem nuh want see we reach nuh weh, only them fi reach some weh so dem use the youth dem as ladder. But a full time the youth them understand themself and put a stop to it. Nuff love!
