Burro Banton - Badder Dan Dem

[Intro]
Now this is the original Burro Banton!
Badder than dem, badder than dem, badder than dem, badder than dem
Badder than dem, badder than dem, badder than dem, badder than dem
Badder than dem, badder than dem, badder than dem, badder than dem
Badder than dem, badder than dem, badder than dem, badder than dem

[Chorus]
Me born badder than dem, and grow rougher than dem
All a dem a move and a gwaan you know a me set the trend
Me born quicker than dem, me dress slicker than dem
Me a the leaf, me a the root, me a the branch, me a the stem

[Verse 1]
Wha' test dem, the Banton a true born legend
Enter the business '75 and that was way back when
Wuk dem! Wipipipi bamskeng
When Beenie and Bounty was just children
If you think a lie, go ask the General Skeng
Me used to DJ Stereo Mars from ten till ten
Volcano, 'jaro until the needle it bend
I'm the governor, general, that mean say me no beg friend
Dem tek the Banton, me never tek nothing fi dem
I'm standard recommended highest grade of the blend
Start 'round a walk to Pen with Ricky Ten dem 'round a Grants Pen
Hey!
Ey, ey, ey, ey

[Chorus]
Badder than dem, and grow rougher than dem
All a dem a move and a gwaan you know a me set the trend
Me born quicker than dem, me dress slicker than dem
Me a the leaf, me a the root, me a the branch, me a the stem

[Verse 2]
Me stand up like Daniel inna the lion den
Walk alone, that mean say me no walk with man
Any bwoy me no rate, me no chat up to dem
Gyal me no like cyaan be me gyalfriend
Machine me no borrow, machine me no lend
Me lock the Glock and massive 10 fi save God children
War obstacle, barriers and problems
If a claat violate, you know him get condemn

[Chorus]
Cah me badder than dem, grow rougher than dem
All a dem a move and a gwaan you know a me set the trend
Me born quicker than dem, me dress slicker than dem
Me a the leaf, me a the root, me a the branch, me a the stem

[Verse 3]
From the day me born say me a gangster fi dem
Some tackin' out dem face and dem is no problem
Stand up out a road and dem a peep over me fence
Like dem waan take the stripe out a me pants leg
Jah Jah a me guide, Selassie a me confidence
Me earning all the dollars, dem accumulating cents
Hyping up themselves, dem don't have no sense
A me rule the lane, the street and the providence

[Chorus]
Me badder than dem, grow rougher than dem
All a dem a move and a gwaan you know a me set the trend
Me born quicker than dem, me dress slicker than dem
Me a the leaf, me a the root, me a the branch, me a the stem

[Verse 1]
Wha' test dem, the Banton a true born legend
Enter the business '75 and that was way back when
Wuk dem! Wipipipi bamskeng
When Beenie and Bounty, they was just children
If you think a lie, go ask the General Skeng
Used to DJ Stereo Mars from ten till ten
Volcano, 'jaro until the needle it bend
I'm the governor, general, that mean say me no beg friend
Dem tek the Banton, me never tek nothing fi dem
I'm standard recommended highest grade of the blend
Start 'round a walk to Pen with Ricky Ten dem 'round a Grants Pen
Hey!
Ey, ey, ey, ey

[Chorus]
Badder than dem, and grow rougher than dem
All a dem a move and a gwaan you know a me set the trend
Me born quicker than dem, me dress slicker than dem
Me a the leaf, me a the root, me a the branch, me a the stem

[Outro]
Me badder than dem, grow rougher than dem
All a dem a move and a gwaan you know a me set the trend
Born quicker than dem, me dress slicker than...
