Power to the workers
More power
Power to the workers
We need more power
Power to the workers
Got to have more power
Power to the workers
We need more power

Free zone workers you working hard everyday
But all the work you do don't get enough pay
I mad I still don't know why I still don't know why
Is minimum wage for your sufferation have no more toleration

Hand to mouth can't work
Hand to mouth can't work
Hand to mouth business no it can't work
[cho]
School teachers you working hard educatring
But all the work you do they take you for a play thing
I mad I still don't know why I still don't know why
Is little bit a pay for your contribution and you mean so much to the nation
[cho]
Me say me naah get enough good weh day
All thema work is like them naah get no pay
Naah get enough food from weh day
All the work we work is like we naah get no pay
Watching everything go up in inflation
Food price go up and man pay a go down
Ask some a them
Them telling short long
But in a corner we wings and a jam
Ragga ragga a watch the notion
Say we naah get no good food from weh day
Naah sow no good seed from weh day
Naah sow no good seed from weh day
Naah get enough food weh day
Our nurses saving lives everyday
But all the lives you save you don't get enough pay

I mad I still don't know why
I still don't know why
Is little bit a pay for your life savings
What a grave they're digging
[cho]
Now our farmers them digging hard every day
But all the food they grow import them a say
That make me mad that make me mad mad mad mad
Mad mad mad mad

Is little bit a pay for your mama too and
Your sister got to shop for two
Oh civil servants you working hard everyday and
You sweating out for your pay
But I man still don't know why

Still don't know why is little bit
A pay everyday what you got to take away
Woy! woy! woy! woy! woy!
[cho]
Me say me naah get enough good from weh day
All the talk we talk is like we naah
Naah get no good yood from weh day all the bawl we bawl
Say them no hear wha we a say
Workers a the backbone a the whole island
Don't treat them right is total confusion
Can't go no doctor for no medication
School but no teacher no education
Pay more dollars to the foundation
Naah get enough pay from weh day musician a suffer but a play
Same way engineer a bawl how him pay too small
Can't build him house with no concrete wall
Bass man a cry bout him can't get string
Have the contacts and can't bring them in raggamuffin dj and sing

Lord naah get enough good from weh day
All the talk we talk is like we naah Lord
Naah get no good yood from weh day
All the bawl we bawl say them no hear wha we a say
Watching everything go up in inflation
Food price go up and man pay a god down
Some a them
Them telling short
Long
Ragga ragga deh pon the version
Ziggy zaggy a watch the movements
