Vybz Kartel - Ghetto Youth (2011 version)

A Jah Jah, open their eyes
Society, Teacha
Fi the ghetto youth dem
Alright

Tired fi see another mother cry
We alone face the sacrifice
But no matter wha' dem say
Ghetto youth haffi still survive
We hol' the faith alone from sun up till sun rise
A we dem prosecute and terrorise
But no matter wha' dem say
Ghetto youth haffi still survive
Well, alright

Me born and me raise inna the ghetto yeah
Hungry nights, hungry days weh me haffi face
Me lef' school without no subjects
Society, no show no interest
Every day inna the ghetto a the same thing
Survival, survival of the fittest
Babylon, no give we access
So bredda against bredda inna rat race

Me watch me granny bring the money through the church door
She seh the pastor tell her seh fi hope more
Dem seh heaven inna sky, but me doh sure
Cah me don't see no brochure
All me see a ghetto youth a die

Tired fi see another mother cry
We alone face the sacrifice
But no matter wha' dem say
Ghetto youth haffi still survive
We hol' the faith alone from sun up till sun rise
A we dem prosecute and terrorise
But no matter wha' dem say
Ghetto youth haffi still survive

Me really waan fi no where is the future
Fi Jamaica and the whole a dem ghetto youth ya
Bright girl, she nah've no father
Fi pay the school fee, she nah've a mother
Suppose you hear seh she turn a dirty dancer
Suppose you hear seh she turn a dirty dancer
Society, why you mek the crime eat away the ghetto like a cancer?
Me waan your answer

Me watch me granny bring the money through the church door
She seh the pastor tell her seh fi hope more
Dem seh heaven inna sky, but me doh sure
Cah me don't see no brochure
All me see a ghetto youth a die

Tired fi see another mother cry
We alone face the sacrifice
But no matter wha' dem say
Ghetto youth haffi still survive
We hol' the faith alone from sun up till sun rise
A we dem prosecute and terrorise
But no matter wha' dem say
Ghetto youth haffi still survive
Well, alright

Ghetto youth from Jamaica
Trinidad an' Antigua
Venezuela, Belize and Cuba
Me bredda dem inna Angola
Zimbabwe, black soldier
Palestine, Gaza
Children

Tired fi see another mother cry
We alone face the sacrifice
But no matter wha' dem say
Ghetto youth haffi still survive
We hol' the faith alone from sun up till sun rise
A we dem prosecute and terrorise
But no matter wha' dem say
Ghetto youth haffi still survive
Well, alright
