Linton Kwesi Johnson – Di Black Petty Booshwah lyrics

Dem wi'gi' whey dem talent to di state
An'di black workin' class andahrate
Dem wi' side wid oppressah
W'en di goin' get ruff
Side wid aggressah
W'en di goin' get tuff

Dem a black petty-booshwah
Dem full of flaw
Dem a black petty-booshwah
Dem full of flaw

Tru dem seh dem edicate dem a gwaan irate
Tru dem seh dem edicate dem a seek tap rate
Dem a seek posishan
Aaf di backs of blacks
Seek promoshan
Aaf di backs af blacks

Dem a black petty-booshwah
Dem full of flaw
Dem a black petty-booshwah
Dem full of flaw

Dem a run-up dem mout' an' a shout all about
Tru dem have a lat a dou't 'bout di stren't af blacks
Dem a run-up dem mout'
An' a shout all about
But w'en wi launch wi attack
Dem wi' haffi dress back

Dem a black petty-booshwah
Dem full of flaw
Dem a black petty-booshwah
Dem full of flaw!
