Vybz Kartel - Court Case

Yo!
'Member when me roll inna the court 6: 15 fi my case
Full versace from the suit, versace boot, versace lace
It's like a presidential race, the 'mount a people inna the place
Me see the whole a Waterford and southside an Spanish Town crazy face
Me no come a court fi joke like Chevy Chase
(What's the charge?) dem say me arms up like a military base
Perry Mason a me lawyer from the United States
Him know the good, him know the bad, is like a two sided face
Court in session, Clark a court say inna second judge appearing
Judge appear an start the hearing, Bible rise, people swearing
"Mr. Palmer," said the judge, "Entertainer come to court too?"
(She say) "What you here today for?" Me say, " Daat me want fi know too!"
She say "Listen! The officer dem a charge you fi possession of a weapon
plus the ammunition, that's another felon
plus you're wanted inna connection with a murder" (wha?)
"You have anything to say before the court goes any further?" me jus' say

Me never bring no gun that day, Your Honour
Me never bring no gun that day, jury
Me never bring no gun that day, God know
Me never bring no gun that day

Subpoen' the police make him testify
'Cause he's telling all kind a lie
Me lawyer say da case yah fi sign a lie

Put it inna the back of the car, go 'pon him radio like a cabby

To the station dem escort we, me reach them say them a charge me
Me seh, "Who fa murder that?"
Him seh "Shut up, and d'even ask me!"
Dem seh dem a go charge me fi the shotty and the cartridge

"Approach the suspect, right away him start rant
Right away him get boisterous and cuss up bare claat
When me see the rifle mouth, it skip the beat inna me heart!" (bloodclaat!)

Diarrhoea like me want fi make a toilet with me seat

Him shake him head and kiss him teeth
And whisper, "If you get no bail, leave town before this week"
The world a crumble, reality start to soak in

(Wha'!) Me fled the scene, pack up me bag fi go El Paso
Worst me know seh me no guilty!? Me nah come back yah so!"
