Chronixx - Ghetto People

Where you gonna run, now that the 'Gideon start?
(Where you gonna run, now that the 'Gideon, 'Gideon start)
When all the money that you rob from ghetto youths
Ain't enough to fly you to Mars
When the system you defend start break down like Lego and
The whole world becomes a ghetto
That's when you'll realize

The whole a wi a ghetto people, ghetto people
Suh tell mister boasty slave, don't forget the people
Ghetto people, ghetto people, call dem all
Remember Haile Selassie never left the people
No time at all, not even an inch

Gimmi a pound a the macka height and no grabber
Make mi cool and satta 'pon the riddim proper
Every youth top shotta part the zig zagger
Make mi show you what a clock a strike in a Jamrock yah
Politician dem a chat a tongue sharp like macka
Dem nuh have no vision dem a scammer, wi a wave the banner
Wa kind a honour unuh naw treat the youth wid honour
Make mi show unuh a vibes

Nuh true yo living up town when the banks fall down
Then the whole a wi a ghetto youths
A me poor, you rich but when the pole shift
Then the whole a wi a ghetto youths
And me black, you white, but when famine strike
Then the whole a wi a ghetto youths
On that day when you trade your Rolls Rice for a grain of rice
That's when you realize seh the whole a wi a

Ghetto people, ghetto people
Suh tell mister boasty slave, don't forget the people
Ghetto people, ghetto people, ghetto people,
Remember Haile Selassie never left the people
People, oh no, no, oi

Warning to all the future leaders
Dem don't treat the youths like a different creature
Dem seek a friend before you need a friend
Those children in the streets a wi teach a dem
Future soldiers and politician
But a bet you cannot seet
Make mi adjust yo folly vision
Your eyes blurred by the guns and ammunition
Suh make mi show unuh a vibes

When the night turn day, White House turn grey
Then the whole a wi a ghetto youths
And me walk, you drive but when there's no oil
Then the whole a wi a ghetto youths
And when you cyaan tell Liguanea different from Tivoli
Then you si seh wi a ghetto youths
When you can't tell Avondale from downtown Parade
Then a then you realize seh the whole a wi

Ghetto people, ghetto people, good Lord have mercy
Forget the people, forget the people
Ghetto people, ghetto people
Remember Haile Selassie never left the people
The whole a wi a ghetto people
