[Intro:]
Yo snypa
Mi wah yuh question dem enuh
Oh...

[Chorus:]
Babylon wah mek you put so much burden pon we (pon we)
Society forsake we
Tell mi weh the system a go do fi my pickney
Nuff ghetto youths n'have nuh have nuh weh fi sleep
N'have nuh have no clothes fi wear
N'have nuh have no food fi eat oh my Jah
So dem a hustle in the streets
Night pon top a night days pon top a days weeks pon top a weeks uhmm

[Verse 1:]
Ghetto youths mi nah stop
No sah mi nah give up di fight
Di system design, fi none a we survive
Di politics corrupt di youth a it a start di strike
A it a mek wi wah fi tek wi one another life
Inna di heart of di garrison we come from
Dem seh di whole a wi a criminal and gunman
Di youth fi pay di school fee weh di fuss dollar haffi come from
Jah know seh we need a solution
Ask dem Miller 9

[Chorus:]
Babylon wah mek you put so much burden pon we (pon we)
Society forsake we
Tell mi weh the system a go do fi my pickney

Nuff ghetto youths n'have nuh have nuh weh fi sleep
N'have nuh have no clothes fi wear
N'have nuh have no food fi eat oh my Jah
So dem a hustle in the streets
Night pon top a night days pon top a days weeks pon top a weeks uhmm

[Verse 2:]
Tell mi weh you a go do fi black woman
No daddy she nuh know she and har madda one
Brite girl inna class she a number one
CXC a come around no money fi exam
Society know fi di garrison no love nuh show
But from di best come to worst history tell you so
Teacha mek it be known
Di stone weh di builder refuse
Always become di head corner stone
So ask dem

[Chorus:]
Babylon wah mek you put so much burden pon we (pon we)
Society forsake we
Tell mi weh the system a go do fi my pickney
Nuff ghetto youths n'have nuh have nuh weh fi sleep
N'have nuh have no clothes fi wear
N'have nuh have no food fi eat oh my Jah
So dem a hustle in the streets
Night pon top a night days pon top a days weeks pon top a weeks uhmm
