Popcaan - The System

Sad to say
But, white people ah bawl
Indian people ah bawl
Black people ah bawl
Chinese people ah bawl
System, design fi set we up
Yeah, dem give we di guns and
Dem same one come wet we up, Dre Skull

Wey di system do fi ghetto yute? Nothin'
Wey dem do fi ghetto yute? Nothin'
Every day another mother bawl
Dem don't do nothin' at all, yea
We've been suffering from we small

So, some think sey a bed a rose
Through pretty clothes inna me closet
None ah dem nah see me pain
Further more dem neva ask yet
Silence ah di baddest weapon
So yuh know wey me do, me talk less
Man ah work every day dung ah wharf
And a three grand a week dem a accept
Dem nuh waan me fi build mama house
Don't waan me fi own no assets
Sufferation everywhere me turn
So give thanks to Jah when yuh pass it
Suh ghetto yute don't mek nuh silly plans
Believe in yourself be ah man
Dem waan we fi dead 'pon di road
Dem don't waan we fi mek billions, Dre Skull

Wey di system do fi ghetto yute? Nothin'
Wey dem do fi ghetto yute? Nothin'
Every day another mother bawl
Dem don't do nothin' at all, yea
We've been suffering from we small

Suh, if we sell weed ah problem dat
If we do a robbery a problem dat
The whole world a pray fi di problem stop
Nobody nuh cater fi solving dat
Innocent yute ah receive gunshots
Mama haffi dress up inna white and black
Oh God, tired fi go ah Dovecot

White people ah bawl
Indian people ah bawl
Black people ah bawl
Chinese people ah bawl
System, design fi set we up
Yeah, dem give we di guns and
Dem same one come wet we up, Dre Skull

Wey di system do fi ghetto yute? Nothin'
Wey dem do fi ghetto yute? Nothin'
Every day another mother bawl
Dem don't do nothin' at all, yea
We've been suffering from we small

Suh, if we sell weed ah problem dat
If we do a robbery a problem dat
The whole world a pray fi di problem stop
Nobody nuh cater fi solving dat
Innocent yute ah receive gunshots
Mama haffi dress up inna white and black
Oh God, tired fi go ah Dovecot

Ghetto youth, believe in yourself
Ghetto youth, believe in yourself, be a man
Ghetto youth, believe in yourself
Ghetto youth, believe in yourself, be a man

Believe in yourself
Believe in yourself, be a man
Believe in yourself
Believe in yourself, be a man
