Ishawna - Protect Yourself (Stop Violence Against Women)

All I wanna say is that
They don't really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don't really care about us

Dem just a stand up one side
And a watch females get victimize
Dem just a stand up one side
And a support murderers
What's wrong with these guys?
How you fi stand up one side
And watch the mother fi creation get brutalize?
Dem just fling we one side
Left we fi decompose with maggot and flies

Protect yourself ladies
The killer dem no care 'bout your ages
Right now dem give all taxi man bad name
Some a hustle fi a decent wages
Protect yourself ladies
Man nowadays a gi' murderer praises
Dem a rape off we babies
And waan see we pushing up daisies

Me waan shut down INDECOM
'Cause head haffi go buss fi the crime rate go down
Woman if you have a rapist fi a son
Try shoob him out fast, wus if him a fire gun
Woman a dead and everyone a play dumb
Dem a kidnap and kill we fi fun
All now me no hear the church bawl fire burn
Woman a run go a foreign, a seek asylum

Me see rapist a walk free
One time that couldn't be, Jamaica moving off key
Government and police nah 'ave no strategy
Dem cyaan protect none a we
Me Mace and me Jaze a me guide and protector
Every man a turn nerd like a Dexter
Some a cannibal like Hannibal Lector
The innocent girls a get pressure
And me see man separate dem self from 'ooman
Self reservation ladies a we one
Defend yourself, be your own bodyguard
No 'fraid fi mek the thing beat bucka
Dem no have no empathy or compassion
Eat we food one a day like asham
Right now the black woman trust
Fi the black man turn inna hatred
Love out a fashion

Because all I wanna say is that
They don't really care about us
Uh, uh, uh, us
All I wanna say is that
They don't really care about us
They don't really care
All I wanna say is that
They don't really care about us
Uh, uh, uh, us, us
All I wanna say is that
They don't really care about us
They don't really care

Dem just a stand up one side
And a watch females get victimize
Dem just a stand up one side
And a support murderers
What's wrong with these guys?
How you fi stand up one side
And watch the mother fi creation get brutalize?
Dem just fling we one side
Left we fi decompose with maggot and flies

Me lock up inna the house and wonder what's next
And a ask Jah fi guide and protect
Cah me no see no man a unite
Fi defend womans rights and the ones weh oppress
Protect your family, that fi be your quest
But it look like some man inna house a wear dress
We need a Black Panther movement right now
If unno ready, unno beat unno chest

Alright, all I wanna say is that
They don't really care about us
Uh, uh, uh, us
All I wanna say is that
They don't really care about us
They don't really care
All I wanna say is that
They don't really care about us
Uh, uh, uh, us, us
All I wanna say is that
They don't really care about us
They don't, they don't really care

They don't really care
They.. they don't really care
Uh huh, they don't really care
They don't
They don't really care
Need dem fi care
They don't really care
