Da Professor - I Know Why

No one should be blamed but dem
Hey, ghetto youths
They a treat the poor below average
Tell dem what we need now, talk up, speak up
Shall perish, and throw away like garbage
No hold back, nah nah now
A the Professor a me talking fi the people
Me nah go mek dem drive around like no vehicle
Words dem nah deal with the rights
We no go give up without put up a fight
God know...

I know why, the youths a rebel
Unno story of the ghetto, now things no look well
The dutty works weh dem a preach, dem a go dead and go a hell
How you fi take 'way all the things dem weh the street beggars a sell
I know why, the place no run merry
Why mek your things every day another one a bury
It set up to we survive any means necessary
You split up all the ghetto's in a war territory now

Dem a the cause fi youths bruk out bad
A who now issue guns fi the youths dem go rob
The garrison dem waan treat like home fi the dogs
But the ghetto full a star like American flag
Me believe in the ghetto, I swear
Dem only promise things weh dem no mean, cah dem no care
This a the warmth to my brothers and me sisters
So me lef' unno to Jah, come me chant couple Scriptures

I know why, the youths a rebel
Unno story of the ghetto, now things no look well
The dutty works weh dem a preach, dem a go dead and go a hell
How you fi take 'way all the things dem weh the street beggars a sell
I know why, the place no run merry
Why mek your things every day another one a bury
It set up to we survive any means necessary
You split up all the ghetto's in a war territory now

Oh, it's so easy a fi, dem harder fi we
The world need education, so I can be free
Me waan see elevation for the nation
Stop confuse the youth dem mind with your tel-lie-vision
And technically speaking
Me beg you unno put this inna unno mind and draw off a meeting
Corruption stop, members dem get deleting
Dem biggest plan is to get rich
Dem gaining interest while dem in dead sleeping
A devil dem...

I know why, the youths a rebel
Unno story of the ghetto, now things no look well
The dutty works weh dem a preach, dem a go dead and go a hell
How you fi take 'way all the things dem weh the street beggars a sell
I know why, the place no run merry
Why mek your things every day another one a bury
It set up to we survive any means necessary
You split up all the ghetto's in a war territory now

Dem a devil, dem a devil (devil)
Dem a walk with the devil (fi real)
Dem no waan see youths rich (rich)
But we no know a name quick (quick)
True, dem see youths a mek progress (step up)
Dem no waan we show we best (Selah)
But a we have the victorious
Ghetto youths call 'pon Jah fi the gloriest

I know why, the youths a rebel
Unno story of the ghetto, now things no look well
The dutty works weh dem a preach, dem a go dead and go a hell
How you fi take 'way all the things dem weh the street beggars a sell
I know why, the place no run merry
Why mek your things every day another one a bury
It set up to we survive any means necessary
You split up all the ghetto's in a war territory now

I know why, the youths a rebel
Unno story of the ghetto, now things no look well
The dutty works weh dem a preach, dem a go dead and go a hell
How you fi take 'way all the things dem weh the street beggars a sell
I know why, the place no run merry
Why mek your things every day another one a bury
It set up to we survive any means necessary
You split up all the ghetto's in a war territory now
