Buju Banton - Battered & Bruised

Wooo (one life to live)
Man a woo, man a woo (one life to live)
I want you to know (one life to live)
Want you to know (life upright)

Take a look at me, tell me what do you see
You don't have to love me, but I'm not your enemy
And I'm not amused, by your verbal abuse
You think you're clever, what a sorry excuse
Playing with the minds of people, dangerous games they play
Man if you are not careful they lead you a stray
Protect your soul by any means necessary
Take nothing for granted, you may be sorry, oh
One life you've got to live
Come on let's us live it right
If you're in bed with the devil
Then you 'ave made your choice, because

We've been battered and bruised (battered and bruised)
We still nursing wounds (aah)
Battered and bruised, yah, still nursing wounds, well
Battered and bruised (battered and bruised)
Still nursing my wounds (aah)
Battered and bruised, yah, still nursing wounds, oh

We face all form of human segregation
Who are used to ask me where I am from
They brought us here in shackles and chain
And throughout the centuries, it's nothing but pain, Lord

We battered and bruised (battered and bruised)
We still nursing wounds (aah)
Battered and bruised, yah, still nursing wounds
We battered and bruised (battered and bruised)
Still nursing my wounds (aah) yeah
Battered and bruised, yah, still nursing wounds

Now you take a look at me, tell me what do you see
You don't have to love me, but I'm not your enemy, no
And I'm not amused, by your verbal abuse
You think you're clever, what a sorry excuse
Playing with the minds of people, the games they play
If you're not careful they lead you a stray, now
Protect your soul by any means necessary
Take nothing for granted, you may be sorry, well
One life you've got to live
Come on let's us live it right
Take nothing for, Lord
Watch, watch, watch, watch, watch what you say, hey

We battered and bruised (battered and bruised)
We still nursing wounds (aah)
Battered and bruised, yah, still nursing wounds, yeah
Man battered and bruised (battered and bruised)
Still nursing my wounds (aah) yeah
Battered and bruised, yah, still nursing wounds, oh
