Maga Dog
Sorry fi Maga Dog
Him turn around bite you
And if you jump outta fryin pan
I know you jump inna fire yeah
See you come from country in a country chuk
Tell me say you a look a likkle wuk
Gal go weh from dey
Me no wan' fe see you 'round here
Chorus
When I were with you look how you big and fat
Now you look like a real wet rat
Gal, go weh from me
Me no wan' fe see you 'round here
Chorus
Me jus' a do wha' me hafi do
Me no ha nothin' more fi do with you
And if you know wha' me know
You galang go turn poppy-show
Chorus
Your father gi' you money fi buy piece of land
You take your father money and buy obeah man
But a young nay like you
Should be cut with a filing tool
Chorus

    A magga dog is a meager animal whose ribs show. He is hungry. A country girl comes to the city looking for work. There isn't any. The young man who took his inheritance to buy obeah (spirit magic). That's something that shouldn't have to be bought. Maybe the kid should be. Cut? It's all about being craven & wanting what you don't have so much, that it takes over your life & makes you have the attitude of a starving dog. You try to help, & the dog bites your hand. The situation can only get worse he says. The way to measure your stature in faith & spirit is how you handle yourself when things aren't going smooth. Then you see that others around you are just pulling for their own self, their own show, & their own big eyes, trying to take as much as they can. That is now called "normal". On the outside of that is called berzerk. However there is another way, though it involves sacrifice, endurance, & that old Fword again, Faith. *Alan* (being of service to others is a Rasta Way.*Beyond friendship is brotherhood. Keep it in a holy place.
