[Intro:]
Dynasty
Di system a hijack we

Dem waan
Ghetto, ghetto youth
Dem nuh waan wi survive

But mi memba when mi mamma say
Neva stop try
Memba when mi mamma say
The limit is the skyy

[Chorus:]
Realize ghetto child
One day we have to make it
All yuh see dem a fight
The world is above us fi take it
Nuff time we gone wi bed at night
Hungry and so frustrated
Dem waan mi fi give up the fight

But mi memba when mi mamma say

[Verse 1:]
Da world yah no level
Rich people happy while the poor miserable
But you fi know which part you a choose
One road fi jehovia one road fi the devil
Mi fadda work 24/7
Fi pay off di mortgage it coulda run fast
But mi faster again mi granny money and tell har don't worry bout hurt him
A bring all go heaven
Don't believe

[Chorus:]
Realize ghetto child
One day we have to make it
All yuh see dem a fight
The world is above us fi take it
Nuff time we gone wi bed at night
Hungry and so frustrated
Dem waan mi fi give up the fight

But mi memba when mi mamma say

[Verse 2:]
Achieve success
As a ghetto youth you fi aim fi di best
Society nuh like youth wey a teach
Ghetto youth fi be wise dem will put you to rest
Dem done Martin Luther dem done Malcom X
Di poor [?] fifty wise up di US
So black liberation need a slow process
But selassie I philosophy mi a process
Did believe

[Chorus:]
Realize ghetto child
One day we have to make it
All yuh see dem a fight
The world is above us fi take it
Nuff time we gone wi bed at night
Hungry and so frustrated
Dem waan mi fi give up the fight

But mi memba when mi mamma say

[Verse 1]

[Chorus]
