Vybz Kartel – Better Life lyrics

[Intro:]
Warm to di youth dem a

Every Sunday mi buy Gleaner
A search out di classifies
Mi want a work
Mi youth fi feed
And mi youth dem muss survive

[Verse 1:]
Di light bill payment
Wata payment
Plus di bed and di stove coal payment
Plus di bus fares
Plus di school fee
Dem pon top a dat dem a raise when
Babylon yuh must fall, is not a statement
Cause a nuh work this, this a enslavement
Mi just a hold it, but dem a force mi
Fi broke di six and di eight commandment

[Chorus:]
Mi don't want do nuh crime
Society don't mek mi change mi mind
Cah mi want a better life
My pickney want a better life
Mek mi don't want do nuh crime
Society don't mek mi change mi mind (ghetto youths)
Cah mi want a better life (mm)
My pickney want a better life

[Verse 2:]
Mi get a blind eye from society
But di ghetto nuh expect betta from dem
But mi surprised when a mi di church condemn
Dem seh dem a church bredrin but dem a heathen
Religion cyan trick wi
Wi deh yah above dem
Cause a di pope control di world bank dem

Mi just a hold it, but dem a force mi
Fi broke di Six and di eight commandment

[Chorus:]
Mi don't want do nuh crime (don't want do nuh crime)
Society don't mek mi change mi mind (don't mek wi)
Cah mi want a better life (we sufferin')
My pickney want a better life (help wi please cah mi)
Mi don't want do nuh crime
Society don't mek mi change mi mind (ghetto youths)
Cah mi want a better life (mm)
My pickney want a better life

[Verse 3:]
As far as my eyes can see
Dem nuh response pon wi
Society forsake wi
Mi done tell di garrison already
But times hard
Dem treat wi like dog
If dem raise di toll again
Mi haffi go walk ova mi yard mm

[Chorus: repeat til end]
Mi don't want do nuh crime (don't want)
Society don't mek mi change mi mind (ghetto youths)
Cah mi want a better life (mmm)
My pickney want a better life (help wi please cah mi)
Mi don't want do nuh crime
Society don't mek mi change mi mind (ghetto youths)
Cah mi want a better life (mm)
My pickney want a better life
