Chorus: The black the yellow the green,
From Montego bay all the way back to the bean,
Representing the black the yellow the green,
From Montego bay all the way back to the bean,
What you mean?
We (go Kingston to Ceview, Ocho Rios I see you,
Then Newton to Brockton,
Randolph back to Boston)2x

1 verse: let me rap bout the place I was born at gyal(girl),
We pay no mine to your boring style, sip on wine every morning child
As the sun comes up on this morning isle,
Bullets fly high on the side of the ghetto,
Still every house is surrounded by meadows,
And though every person don't ride in a limo,
We still got pride and that's something that they know,
Of course they mad, cause we gon' ball
And we stay flowing like duns river fall
And we know how to throw down,
Girls wanna go down,
Go go speed up, don't ever slow down,
Woah now, boy gwan(go and) hate,
We don't date,
I don't need to please you,
I don't even need you,
Haters so blurry man I don't even see you,
First hate on you then they try to be you,
Tryna say whagwan(what' going on) but your so see through,
Tell these girls come on,
I'm just tryna lead you to the best spot,
You've ever been to, hottest out here,
But we been cool, hometown so great,
Breakthrough can't hold down these gates,
So fruitful like a gallon of V8,
And we stay true to the flag we paint,
Uh uh

Chorus: The black the yellow the green,
From Montego bay all the way back to the bean,
Representing the black the yellow the green,
From Montego bay all the way back to the bean,
What you mean?
We (go Kingston to Ceview, Ocho Rios I see you,
Then Newton to Brockton,
Randolph back to Boston)2x

2 verse: home of the dancehall dancers,
Ganja we stand tall,
Bob Marley and Sean Paul Movado,
We all ball,
Staying cool up in the heat,
Hundred dogs up in the streets,
Curry goat I'm down to eat,
Don't need your vote just hold your peace,
From the Latham's to the Wilson's
To the Bent fam we killing
The competition,
No other place you would rather live in,
Lavish in it,
But on one side the shots go up,
On the other side you up in resorts,
Resorts in you not knowing what goes down
When the cops come round
We taking no shorts,
Wear no shirts to hot for that,
Tank tops all good don't stop with that,
Party at 9 we walk to that,
And the broads so thick let me hop on that,
Hometown so great,
Breakthrough can't hold down these gates,
So fruitful like a gallon of V8,
And we stay true to the flag we paint,
Uh uh

Chorus: The black the yellow the green,
From Montego bay all the way back to the bean,
Representing the black the yellow the green,
From Montego bay all the way back to the bean,
What you mean?
We (go Kingston to Ceview, Ocho Rios I see you,
Then Newton to Brockton,
Randolph back to Boston)2x
